Focused Small Cap


Argent Capital’s® Focused Small Cap Strategy consists of 35-45 high-quality, enduring businesses that have the potential for superior investment results over the long term. These enduring businesses exhibit durable competitive advantages, have positive and improving cashflow characteristics and are run by management teams with proven track records of value creation. The goal of the Focused Small Cap Strategy is to outperform our benchmark over the long term.
