The Large-Cap Growth folio was developed for investors seeking aggressive long-term capital appreciation with higher volatility.


The Large-Cap Growth folio consists of large-cap companies with high earnings growth potential, in comparison to the overall market. Large-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations above $11 billion USD.

This folio provides the long-term growth potential of large companies that are well established in their respective industries with potential for above-average earnings growth. These companies tend to enjoy strong market positions, seasoned management teams, solid financial conditions, and above-average earnings growth and profitability. This folio’s broad diversification open it up to less volatility than large-cap growth funds that have more concentrated portfolios.

Steps to Create This Folio

  1. We identified large-cap stocks as those having market capitalizations greater than $11 billion and consistent sales and earnings growth over the past year.
  2. We determined the average sales and earnings growth projections in a given sector.
  3. We screened for stocks with above-average earnings growth and sales projections compared to the sector average.
  4. We ranked these large-cap stocks and targeted the sector weights to be comparable to those of the S&P 500.
  5. We equally weighted all securities in the folio.

Number of Securities

There are generally 30 securities in the folio.
