The International Small Company Fund seeks long-term capital appreciation. Current income is a secondary consideration in selecting portfolio investments.

The International Small Company Fund typically invests in common stocks. The Advisor seeks to build a portfolio of exceptional international small companies with the wherewithal to become exceptional large companies. The International Small Company Fund typically holds a portfolio of between 40 to 65 securities that the Advisor believes have the potential for growth.
A Portfolio Focused on Exceptional Companies
The Fund seeks to invest in exceptional companies that save time, lives, money or headaches, or provide an exceptional value proposition to consumers. The portfolio is comprised of these organizations that we believe have the potential to grow revenues and earnings significantly over a three-to-five-year investment time horizon and beyond.
International Small Company Fund Investment Team
The International Team oversees the International Equity Strategy, International Equity Fund, International Small Company Strategy, and the International Small Company Fund. Consistent with all Brown Capital teams, these tenured portfolio managers also serve as generalists in fulfilling their research duties. Clients benefit from the team’s practical experience resulting from decades spent working through multiple market cycles. The team’s first priority is to build the capital of clients, achieved primarily by investing in what we believe to be exceptional international small growth companies. Selection of these companies is based on their capacity to grow over a three-to-five-year evaluation horizon and beyond.
