Goldman Sachs Asset Management new fund launch

Goldman Sachs Asset Management enters the US small-cap space with new fund launch.

The Goldman Sachs US Smaller Cap Equity fund will invest in US small cap stocks with the aim of identifying companies that have the potential to become large cap leaders in the future.

The funds high conviction strategy will invest in high quality small caps. At the same time a diversified approach will be adopted as a hedge against company-specific risk.

The fund will be managed by the group’s US small-cap team run by co-lead portfolio managers Sally Pope Davis, Rob Crystal and Sean Butkus.

Pope Davis said: “US smaller caps offer a fertile ground for active management in a relatively under-researched universe. Through our rigorous stock-specific research process, we seek to generate consistent risk-adjusted outperformance across various market environments.”

Nick Phillips, Head of International Retail Client Business at Goldman Sachs Asset Management, said: “With the team’s deep expertise, we believe the smaller cap universe can offer our clients exposure to the potential leaders of tomorrow while diversifying an existing global equity allocation.

“We believe the more domestically-focused smaller cap universe is particularly well-placed to benefit from the current market environment.”
