Investment Approach

Investment Approach

Emerging Opportunities Fund

The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in the stocks of U.S. micro cap companies. These companies have market capitalizations that, at the time of initial purchase, place them among the smallest 3% of companies listed on U.S. stock markets.

The Fund utilizes a multi-manager approach, with subadvisors who use complementary investment approaches combined to provide broad micro cap exposure.
