Standing Out from the Growth Crowd

June 30, 2017

The Aggressive Growth Strategy stands out from its peers by taking a patient, high active share approach that emphasizes bottom-up stock selection of companies with the ability to deliver long-term growth.

As portfolio manager Evan Bauman explains in a new Q&A, “We run a high conviction, non-correlated growth strategy that seeks to own quality companies across market capitalizations with the ability to sustain their earnings and cash flow growth over time. We look very different from our market benchmark and thus offer a good complement or alternative to passive vehicles. We would hope that investors that own the strategy share our long-term investment horizon.”
