Local culture, proximity to companies, and in depth knowledge of management teams are sources of added value in the selection and monitoring of small and mid-cap stocks.
For these reasons, Sycomore Asset Management has launched a concept called the Synergy Managers Club. Members of the Synergy Managers Club share Sycomore Asset Management’s investment philosophy and all follow the same value, fundamental and conviction-based approach.
The Synergy Smaller Cies fund aims to outperform the euro zone’s small and midcap market over the long term. The portfolio is co-managed by six local teams and benefits from their experience and know-how of their respective national markets. Allocation to small and mid-caps holds a significant position in the portfolio construction process.
