Investment Philosophy

The Hodges Small Cap Focused Strategy investment approach is to make strategic long‐term, and
to a lesser extent, tactical short‐term investments in small capitalization (“small cap”) stocks that we feel are undervalued, under‐followed and/or offer above average growth prospects. The Strategy targets a flexible style of both value and growth investment. The Russell 2000 is its benchmark.
