Strategy Objective

We use an active, fundamental, bottom-up security selection process when researching stocks for our small and mid-cap growth portfolio. Utilizing Timpani's research-intensive approach, the investment team expects to add value primarily through security selection (approximately 90%) with the remainder coming from sector allocation.

Key Differentiators

  • One cohesive and consistent investment team since inception
  • Time-tested process that works in most investing environments
  • Objective, disciplined approach minimizes biases and results in efficient decision-making
  • Value-added sell discipline seeks to provide downside protection
