Leith Wheeler
US Small/Mid-Cap Equity Fund

Objective

To provide superior long-term investment returns by investment primarily in a broad range of small and mid-capitalization U.S. companies. The Fund is not restricted by industry sector or size, although portfolio diversification is a consideration in the selection of securities for the fund.

Investment Style

We utilize a value approach to stock selection, applying bottom-up, fundamental analysis to all investment decisions. Our investment goal is to protect our client’s capital while offering superior investment growth, regardless of economic conditions. We seek to invest in companies with stable earnings with a long-term business model and management team that we have a high level of comfort in.We seek to invest in solid companies run by strong managementteams that can navigate variable market conditions.

As value investors, we tend to invest in companies when they are viewed as “out of favour” by the market and have declined in price. Companies can become undervalued when there is a lack of investor awareness, when an entire industry is out of favour with investors, or when a company experiences a short-term difficulty which, following careful analysis, we believe can be overcome. By purchasing these companies after a price decline, we find we are able to control risk in the portfolio as these investments often have less downside risk while offering a decent potential return.
