The investment objective of the Emerging Markets Small Cap Equity strategy is to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Small Cap Index by 2.5 to 3.5% annualized over the long term by utilizing a low turnover, fundamental, bottom-up, relative value approach with a focus on downside protection.


RVX’s fundamental bottom-up, relative value philosophy is predicated on the assumption that stock prices are more volatile than the underlying intrinsic value of businesses. In effect, a stock should be viewed as a small piece of a business that is for sale.


RVX believes the key to investment success is to buy stocks of businesses which have determinable value, but which are unpopular or overlooked at the present time. As such, the objective will be to buy undervalued stocks.
