Quarterly Commentary - Q2 2015


Small-cap growth stocks notched gains in the second quarter, led by the health care and technology sectors.

We outperformed our benchmark during the period. Stock selection in the industrial sector was a large driver of relative outperformance.

We expect a lower aggregate return environment going forward, and think our investment style is well suited for the current market backdrop.
