Why invest?

  • Small-cap value fund (generally market caps up to $3 billion) that invests primarily in dividend-paying companies with high returns on invested capital and strong fundamentals
  • Focuses on quality businesses with the ability to generate excess cash flow and attractive prospects that are selling at prices Royce believes do not fully reflect these attributes
  • Has a long-term history of low volatility and better risk-adjusted returns than its benchmark, the Russell 2000 Index
  • Invests in a limited number of micro-cap companies (generally market caps up to $1 billion) with low P/B and P/S ratios categorized into one of four themes: Turnarounds, Unrecognized Asset Values, Undervalued Growth, and Interrupted Earnings
  • Identifies a catalyst for future earnings growth in the form of new management, more favorable business cycle, product innovation, and/or margin improvement
  • Average annual total return of 12.5% since inception (8/31/10) through 3/31/17

Morningstar Style Map

The Morningstar Style Map is the Morningstar Style Box™ with the center 75% of fund holdings plotted as the Morningstar Ownership Zone™. The Morningstar Style Box is designed to reveal a fund's investment strategy. The Morningstar Ownership Zone provides detail about a portfolio's investment style by showing the range of stock sizes and styles. The Ownership Zone is derived by plotting each stock in the portfolio within the proprietary Morningstar Style Box. The shaded area represents the center 75% of the Fund's assets while the plot point in the middle represents the weighted average of its holdings. Over time, the shape and location of a fund's ownership zone may vary.
