Why invest?

  • Small-cap core fund that invests primarily in what Royce believes are "premier" small-cap companies (generally market caps up to $3 billion at the time of investment) with discernible competitive advantages, high returns on capital, and a sustainable, moat-like franchise
  • Focuses on leading quality companies, those with low debt, the ability to generate excess cash flow, and attractive prospects that are selling at prices Royce believes do not fully reflect these attributes
  • Outperformed its benchmark, the Russell 2000 Index, for the 1-, 3-, 15-, 20-, 25-year, and since inception (12/31/91) periods ended 12/31/18
  • Small-cap core fund (generally market caps up to $3 billion) that invests in what Royce believes are leading small-cap companies that have strong business models and competitive positions, superior balance sheets, and attractive prospects for growth
  • Focuses on leading quality companies, those with low debt, the ability to generate excess cash flow, and attractive prospects that are selling at prices Royce believes do not fully reflect these attributes
  • Approach focuses on companies with proven, sustainable high return on invested capital business models that are also selling at attractive valuations.

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.
