Three Growth Strategies to Consider

Growth has been on a run for some time and despite the early year correction to value, growth has made strong returns for the year. As liquidity remains abundant and with the U.S. economy showing signs of slowing growth, many investors continue to search for growth companies. With this in mind, here are several growth-focused strategies to consider.

Sapphire Star Mid Cap Growth

The Sapphire Star Mid Cap Growth strategy invests in domestically listed mid-sized company stocks and ADRs which have exhibited strong, sustainable and improving fundamentals over time, particularly with regards to revenue and profitability. It focuses on securities with asymmetrically favorable risk/reward profiles, while they are still inefficiently priced by the market relative to their potential upside. By combining quantitative fundamental analysis with a robust risk/reward assessment, the strategy is uniquely calibrated to consistently identify investments capable of providing superior risk-adjusted returns over the long term.

Sapphire Star’s team of investment professionals brings over two decades of quantitative equity research and portfolio management experience, as well as a rigorous, repeatable and time-tested investment process, which has been developed and refined over many years and multiple business cycles.
