What’s the strategy?
The U.S. Mid Cap (London Capital) portfolio strategy invests mainly in small to mid-cap U.S. publicly-traded companies with above-average growth potential to achieve long-term capital appreciation.
The portfolio managers pursue a proprietary and systematic approach, benefiting from quantitative-driven analysis to identify stocks with the most attractive combination of attributes. The portfolio manager seeks the flexibility of a small- or mid-cap company (ranging in size between US$1 and US$10 billion in market capitalization) to adapt to changing economic conditions, and a competitive product or service advantage relative to industry peers. Fundamental factor-analysis underpins stock selection and portfolio construction to isolate and capitalize on key drivers of market performance.
It’s a systematic method designed to deliver strong, long-term, risk-adjusted returns through a transparent and repeatable process.
Why invest in this portfolio strategy?
Ideal for investors seeking to diversify their U.S. equity holdings with a portfolio of mid-sized U.S. companies.
This portfolio can be an excellent diversifier from other core and large-cap U.S. portfolio strategies, and tends to hold stocks not typically held within large-cap U.S. portfolios.
It offers a portfolio of companies with higher growth potential and the opportunity to participate in strong price appreciation at earlier stages of the investment lifecycle.
Mid-cap companies tend to have smaller overseas exposure than their large-cap peers, allowing them to perform better when the U.S. economy is outperforming its global peers.
The portfolio is well diversified across sectors. In addition to offering a portfolio with a smaller average cap size than the broad market, typical portfolio characteristics include stronger growth and growth momentum metrics than the broad U.S. market index, the S&P 500 Index.
