Wilshire Small Company Value Portfolio
Nathan Palmer
“As a multi-manager portfolio manager, we’re focused on combining unique investment strategies, which individually may be viewed as having high levels of active risk, and form diversified portfolios that offer attractive levels of prospective excess return but with a reduced risk profile.”
Schwab Small Cap Equity Fund
Jonas Svallin
“We do look at the growth attributes of a company and we certainly look at the quality of the business model, but, over time, it is the value, meaning the price you pay for growth, that separates profit from loss.”
Lazard US Small-Mid Cap Equity Fund
Daniel Breslin
“We strongly believe that higher financial productivity eventually leads to larger value creation. Thus, we think that the investment opportunity lies in assessing the relationship between financial productivity and valuation.”
Ancora Microcap Fund
Denis J. Amato
“Companies that earn well below their normal earnings capacity will be under pressure to get back to normal. If management cannot do it, oftentimes that is when they get bought out. The buyout price is often close to the figure that we have calculated for normalized return value.”
Segall Bryant & Hamill Small Cap Value Fund
Mark T. Dickherber
“We want to invest with management teams that understand where the cost of capital is and know how to improve returns that are substantially higher than the cost. Essentially, we are not just looking for companies that have high return on capital but companies that have a business model to sustain that in the long term.”
