Small Cap Value Strategy

Why choose this strategy?

  • To pursue potentially strong risk-adjusted returns from small-cap value stocks.
  • As a core US small-cap value holding.

 

Investment strategy

  • Vaughan Nelson seeks to take advantage of temporary information and marketplace inefficiencies across the market capitalization range to find opportunities to invest in companies at valuations materially below their long-term intrinsic value.
  • Managers follow a research-intensive process emphasizing balance sheets and cash flow-based projections.
  • The investment team defines value in three ways – as undervalued earnings growth, assets, or dividend yield – and seeks to diversify across company types.
  • Undervalued Earnings Growth – Future redeployment of capital is not reflected in current valuation.
  • Undervalued Assets – Companies priced at a discount to asset value that have an identifiable catalyst with the ability to close the valuation gap.
  • Undervalued Dividend Yield – Companies with a high, stable dividend and minimal perceived downside risk.
