River Oak Discovery Fund

Investment Goal

River Oak Discovery Fund seeks long-term capital growth by investing primarily in stocks of smaller companies selected for their growth potential.

Investment Approach

River Oak Discovery is a small cap growth fund that seeks growth primarily in smaller companies (less than $3 billion in market capitalization) that are rapidly growing and may not yet be fully discovered by Wall Street. The Fund invests in companies that have cutting edge products, visionary management, and the ability to bring innovation to both new and established industries. The Fund is most appropriate for an investor who seeks a diversified way to participate in the growth potential of smaller capitalization companies.

The manager’s investment process involves a combined approach of “top-down” analysis and “bottom-up” stock selection. The “top-down” approach takes into consideration long-term investment themes, such as globalization, demographics, productivity and innovation. As a result of the “top-down” analysis, the manager identifies sectors, industries and companies which it believes should benefit from the overall themes that the manager has observed. As part of the “bottom-up” stock selection, the investment process involves looking for individual companies with earnings growth potential that should exceed the earnings growth rate of the overall market over the long-term, and that may not be fully recognized by the market at large. The manager evaluates a number of different attributes, including the company’s specific market expertise or dominance, its competitive durability and pricing power, solid fundamentals, strong and ethical management, apparent commitment to shareholder interests, earnings growth rates that exceed those of the overall market and what the manager believes to be above-average growth potential with sustainable competitive advantage.
