Piermont Small Cap Value


The Piermont Small Cap Value strategy seeks to generate alpha utilizing 14 proprietary sector-specific, multi-factor models, each with a diverse, lowly correlated set of underlying factors. Stock-specific risks are identified through a qualitative risk assessment process. The strategy is effectively sector, beta, and market-cap neutral to the benchmark and diversified across 100+ stocks (3% max per position) with exposure to all major industries. Asset allocation, sector/industry rotation and market timing are not utilized. We believe that significant alpha generation opportunities in the small cap value segment of the market can be identified through a systematic, risk controlled and repeatable process. The strategy focuses on security selection, limiting undesired tracking error, and positioning the portfolio optimally regardless of the type of market and economic environment.
