Summary

The fund seeks tax-efficient capital appreciation in the long term by investing in companies across any size in the United States.

The investment process is driven by fundamental research to identify rapidly growing companies that are available at reasonable prices.

Next, the research team looks for companies with motivational management teams and offering unknown product or operating margin expansion opportunities.

Then the manager constructs a diversified portfolio from a list of companies in the benchmark index favored by the research team and allocates capital based on its conviction level.
