To invest successfully in small companies, you really need to know the people running the businesses. And in Gary Rollo and Dominic Rose, the Montgomery Small Companies Fund has two highly experienced fund managers well equipped to assess the leaders of ASX-listed small companies.
These talented managers have worked together for more than a decade and have a track record of seizing the opportunities that others miss.
“My experience tells me that it’s more than just the numbers – it’s critical to meet the management teams of the small companies. Dominic and I have literally pounded the pavement for years doing hundreds of meetings with these management teams. We’re looking to form a partnership with management and talented founders so that as they create value on their journey from small company to large company, our investors benefit. We’re looking for management that can deliver, and that’s what turns a good business into a good investment.”
– Gary Rollo
Because smaller companies are not subject to the same continuous analysis by stockbrokers and industry participants, their prospects for the future are not fully reflected in their valuations, or they take longer to be fully reflected. Both situations create opportunities for astute investors. This is where Gary and Dominic have the talent and experience to assess individual small companies that currently fly under the radar. They will be looking for those future industry leaders that address a large end-market, leverage great technology and have strong management teams.
“We think it’s a really exciting time to invest in small companies. There are a lot of companies that are benefiting from global trends such as the cheaper cost to deploy technology and the rise of the Asian consumer. A lot of these companies can also grow quite well despite the macro environment and volatility. The volatility that’s occurred recently also creates some good buying opportunities.” – Dominic Rose
Before founding the Montgomery Small Companies Fund, Gary and Dominic worked together to at MHOR Asset Management. Gary has 16 years’ experience in portfolio management and equities research, including international equities experience at Morgan Stanley and J.P. Morgan in London. Dominic has 14 years’ experience in portfolio management and equities research, including six years as Head of Emerging Companies Research at Deutsche Bank and four years as Head of Research at Foster Stockbroking.
I’m excited to be introducing you to Gary and Dom through the Montgomery Small Companies Fund.
It really is a ground-floor opportunity to invest in tomorrow’s leaders today.
