Undiscovered Earnings Growth

First Focus Growth Opportunities Fund

US> Small-Cap > Value

Nov 10, 2006

Although First Focus Growth Opportunities is a growth fund, it doesn’t limit itself only to the growth industries. Instead, portfolio manager Kurt Spieler spreads the exposure across various industries looking for the companies with above-average growth in each group. The bottom-up research process is complemented by a risk control overlay whose final goal is a portfolio of 50 to 60 growth stocks with low correlations.

Quality with Visibility

Tributary Small Company Fund

Small-cap stocks are an asset class with great potential for an active manager, because they tend to offer more opportunities for investing in mispriced companies. Mark Wynegar and Michael Johnson, co-managers of the Tributary Small Company Fund, rely on an in-depth research process to identify quality companies trading at a discount to fair value. A key element in their process is developing an understanding of each business and a high level of confidence in each investment.

Rooted in Valuation and Tactically Balanced
