Why invest?

  • Small/mid-cap growth fund (generally market caps up to $7.5 billion) that invests in companies with superior revenue and/or earnings growth selling at prices that Royce believes do not fully reflect their prospects
  • Seeks companies that look poised for multi-year periods of robust growth driven by sustainable competitive advantages and/or benefiting from secular growth themes that create favorable conditions for the business
  • Average annual total return of 12.1% since inception (6/14/01) through 9/30/18
  • Invests primarily in low-priced stocks (those with an average cost per share in the portfolio of less than $25), a historically inefficient, institutionally neglected area of the market ripe with potential opportunities
  • Small-cap core fund (generally market caps up to $3 billion) that combines multiple investment themes by investing in low-priced companies with solid fundamentals and/or prospects selling at prices that Royce believes do not fully reflect these attributes
  • Average annual total return of 10.3% since inception (12/15/93) through 9/30/18

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.
