Summary

The fund seeks capital appreciation by investing in small-and mid-size companies in the United States.

The investment process is designed to highlight companies in the benchmark index that are engaged in the banking sector, including commercial banks and savings and loan institutions.

Next, the research team employs a proprietary quantitative screen to evaluate companies on the basis of price, liquidity, and tradability.

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