Symons Capital Introduces a New Concentrated Small Cap Institutional Mutual Fund

Small-cap value funds among top performers in 2016; Returns in excess of 31.00%

PITTSBURGH (Feb 2, 2017) – Symons Capital Management has introduced its second equity mutual fund strategy, the Symons Concentrated Small Cap Value Institutional Fund (SCSVX). The strategy is an extension of the Symons Concentrated Small Cap Value composite.

In every case, Symons Capital seeks to invest in companies with long-term sustainable businesses that can be purchased at attractive prices.

The Symons Concentrated Small Cap Value Institutional Fund will purchase stocks with market capitalizations of less than $3 billion and will hold fewer than 20 stocks across a broad sector allocation.

“As part of designing this strategy, and in an ever-changing environment where fees are being compressed, we wanted to create a fund whereby we believe there will be great demand in the small value asset class.” said Michael P. Czajka, Chief Executive Officer of Symons Capital Management. “In particular, with the lack of available capacity in the small cap value space coupled with a good process and a clear differentiation from our peers, I truly believe this will be the strategy that makes Symons Capital Management a nationally known firm, side-by-side with some of the other great small cap value investment firms.”

Small Caps were top performers in 2016

Small-cap value funds were the top-performing group among U.S. diversified stock mutual funds in 2016, with a 31.74%* return. Symons Capital Management’s portfolio manager and investment research team strive for both long-term absolute returns and relative returns above benchmarks with a focus on risk-management and downside protection over a full-market cycle.

“The small cap sector is an area where we believe our independent macro, quantitative and qualitative equity research can be used to good advantage to achieve long-term wealth accumulation. Typically there is less published research available on such companies, which makes this a perfect strategy for us.” Mr. Czajka said. “I believe this strategy will be very successful not only with investment management consultants, but even more so with registered investment advisers who create asset allocation models utilizing mutual funds rather than ETF’s or index funds in this asset class,” Mr. Czajka added.
