Quarterly Commentary - Q4 2014


Small-cap stocks were volatile, but gained ground during the period.

We outperformed the benchmark during the period. Our stock selection in the energy and technology sectors were top contributors to relative performance.

We would also expect earnings growth, rather than multiple expansion, to be the primary driver of future returns. We believe this investment backdrop is beneficial for our relative performance.
