The Small-Cap Blend folio was designed for investors seeking aggressive long-term capital appreciation with volatility generally higher than the overall U.S. equity market.
The Small-Cap Blend folio consists of companies that have both strong earnings growth potential and appear undervalued based on their price-to-book ratio, as compared to the overall market. Small-cap companies are defined as having market capitalizations below $1.7 billion USD.
A blend investing strategy provides aspects of both value and growth investing styles, without making the difficult determination as to which style the market may favor. Blend folios are designed to be less volatile then their small-cap growth counterparts, but offer potentially less price stability than large-caps and can involve more risk and growth potential than mid-caps. This folio’s broad diversification may make it less volatile than more concentrated small-cap blend mutual funds.
