Why We Started This Fund
We had previous experience managing an international small/micro cap growth fund. Through our travels around the world visiting companies we continue to find a tremendous number of high quality, growing, and underfollowed small/micro cap companies abroad. We believe this is the single most interesting segment of the global equities landscape for the coming decade.
