 “When launched, we set out to build a portfolio of Sustainable Future Compounders, companies that we felt to be forward-thinking and making positive sustainable business improvements,” said Small Cap Growth CIO and lead portfolio manager, James Gowen.  “Our refined investment approach allowing us to focus on selecting progressive companies, combined with our thoughtful portfolio construction process, has helped to provide we what consider to be strong returns since inception.”

 Small Gap Growth portfolios, available as Focused or Concentrated, are built from the bottom up, diversified by sector, industry and characteristics to capture long-term growth resulting in a higher active share.  Small Cap Growth is ESG-aware and uses it as a risk metric to provide additional insight into the companies owned.  Portfolios are accessible through various platforms providers.


“We are proud of what Small Cap Growth Focused and Concentrated have achieved to date and believe that they provide a unique opportunity for investors, outperforming the benchmark for 10 out of 12 quarters, with attractive upside captures of 136 and 131, respectively, and downside captures of 100 and 91, respectively, since inception,” said Spouting Rock Asset Management CEO, Andrew Smith. “This milestone further solidifies our forward movement in the small cap space and the growth of our multi-boutique manager platform.”  The small cap suite consists of an array of offerings from Spouting Rock Asset Management as well as its affiliate, Copper Rock Capital Partners LLC.

“With this continued growth also comes the expansion of our distribution team as we welcome Brian Haskin,” said Spouting Rock Distribution managing member, James Wylie.  Haskin brings over three decades of global sales and management experience from firms including Analytic Investors, Barclays Global Investors, Wilshire Associates and Alternative Strategy Partners.  “Brian’s depth of experience and relationships will be critical in bringing the small cap suite to the marketplace and furthering the Spouting Rock brand.”
