Insight, Sharpness, Perception
Acuitas Funds are advised by Acuitas Investments, LLC, a boutique, multi-manager investment firm focused on small and microcap markets. Acuitas was founded on the pillars of exceptional research, a focus on investment excellence, and outstanding client service. The investment team has a long history in investment manager research and multi-manager portfolio management. Our clients believe microcap and non-U.S. small cap markets offer unique return advantages and Acuitas has the expertise and dedicated resources to most effectively help capture those returns.
Acuitas believes inefficient areas of the equity markets such as microcap and non-U.S. small cap provide attractive active return opportunities for skilled investment managers. However, there are unique challenges to finding appealing investment solutions in these areas. Acuitas helps clients access these inefficient areas by providing:
Capacity in these areas can be challenging to come by because managers fill up quickly. Our multi-manager portfolios offer the potential for greater capacity than individual managers because we are able to upgrade the portfolio into new managers with excess capacity. Our process provides investors a long-term balanced exposure to U.S. microcap and non-U.S. small cap markets.
Acuitas’ focus allows us to offer unique competitive advantages and expertise. By focusing only on global small and microcap markets, Acuitas is able to increase the depth and breadth of our research across the manager universe. This depth and breadth support what we believe are our competitive advantages, including our new manager idea generation, our manager research and the ongoing monitoring and upgrading of our clients’ portfolios.
Most investors have limited resources to cover all asset classes. Niche investments such as microcap and non-U.S. small cap provide strong expected risk/return opportunities but represent relatively small investments compared to the overall portfolio. Acuitas offers an efficient way to take advantage of these opportunities through our focused investment process without taking up a disproportionate amount of clients’ resources.
