Why We Started This Fund
Through our travels around the world visiting companies we find a tremendous number of high quality, growing, and underfollowed small/micro cap companies in emerging and frontier markets. We believe these markets are positioned to be the fastest growing segment of the global economy over the coming decade, and small and micro cap companies are in a unique position to leverage the tremendous expected growth in the middle class. Yet, few investors in these markets are looking at small and micro cap companies.
*Closed to all investors, except existing investors with an established automatic investment plan and/or an established position in a retirement account.
