Fund Description

Strategy Statement
Portfolio Managers
Conrad B. Herrmann
"We focus on companies with the potential for long-term sustainable growth and that demonstrate what we feel is a suitable trade-off between perceived risks and potential return."

Strategy, Benefits, Results


We use fundamental, bottom-up research to find leading growth companies of any size and in any industry that meet our criteria of:

  • Growth. Our team focuses on companies with the potential to produce sustainable earnings and cash-flow growth.
  • Quality. We seek high-quality companies with strong management teams and financial strength.
  • Valuation. We assess whether the growth opportunity is already reflected in the stock price.


  • Tenured and experienced portfolio management team.
  • Distinct research structure. Investment professionals organized into collaborative sector teams.
  • Broad  diversification of leading growth businesses regardless of company size.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Investors should be comfortable with fluctuations in the value of their investments, as small- and mid-sized company stocks can be volatile, especially over the short term.
  • Smaller, mid-sized and relatively new or unseasoned companies can be particularly sensitive to changing economic conditions, and their prospects for growth are less certain than those of larger, more established companies.
  • The fund may focus on particular sectors of the market from time to time, which can carry greater risks of adverse developments in such sectors.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
