Oak Ridge Investments Launches Two New Small Cap Funds

Firm targets asset growth through ongoing strategy additions

CHICAGO – Oak Ridge Investments, LLC, an investment management firm focused on select, actively managed equity strategies recently launched two new mutual funds in the small cap core category. These funds add to the firm’s established leadership in small cap stock investing. The Oak Ridge International Small Cap Fund (ORIIX) and Dynamic Small Cap Fund (ORSIX), will be sub-advised by Algert Global LLC which has a historical track record of strong outperformance versus respective benchmarks.

The Oak Ridge International Small Cap Fund will invest in companies across foreign developed markets targeting a cap range similar to the MSCI EAFE Small Cap Index. The Oak Ridge Dynamic Small Cap Fund will invest in a universe of small cap U.S. traded stocks and will seek to outperform the Russell 2000 Index.

Both Fund strategies will focus on analyzing inefficiencies in global equity markets that result from investor behavioral biases. This systematic process seeks to invest in companies with solid fundamentals, attractive relative valuation, and measureable market catalysts.

“We believe the Funds address a client-driven need in the marketplace by providing exposure to international small cap and U.S. small cap companies,” says Oak Ridge’s Chief Operating Officer, Mark D. Goodwin. “Launching two new funds based on the established track record of the funds’ sub-advisor, Algert Global, is a huge advantage. This is a significant opportunity to partner with a historically successful institutional investment manager through an accessible mutual fund vehicle.”

“The uniqueness of the asset classes these two funds focus on is a timely and compelling opportunity for our clients,” adds Head of Distribution & Marketing, Philip J. Callahan. “We believe the appetite for both funds will be strong given the prospect of active management doing well in these categories. We are excited to bring these complementary strategies to the Oak Ridge suite of diversified investment capabilities.”
