International Small Cap

International Small Cap portfolios are composed of 40 to 70 attractive small-cap companies from our approved list of international stocks.

Strategy’s Best Use:

Investors seeking long-term appreciation through an allocation to small-cap international stocks.

Portfolio Construction:

Our bottom-up portfolio construction leads to the selection of approximately 40 to 70 attractive small-cap companies from our approved list of international stocks. The market capitalization focus is less than $7.5 billion at the time of initial purchase. We do not strive for specific country, sector, or industry exposure. Instead, these allocations are determined strictly through our stock selection process. 

Typically, they have no more than 30 percent in any country, 25 percent in any industry, and position sizes at the time of purchase are limited to a seven percent maximum. 

Foreign currency exposure may be hedged defensively in the International Small Cap Equity strategy for any currencies that we believe are significantly overvalued. Investment in emerging market securities is permitted only in countries that meet our legal standards.

A Value Approach at Its Core:

International Small Cap Equity portfolios are composed of securities that we believe trade at a significant discount to our estimate of intrinsic value, have intrinsic values that grow with time and have shareholder-oriented management teams.

You can expect to receive the highest level of care from our experienced and responsive client services team regardless of the size of the portfolio you entrust with us.
