Heritage Growth Equity Team

  • Excess returns can be achieved by exploiting temporary mispricing of higher growth stocks across the capitalization spectrum.
  • Bottom-up, fundamental research reveals the "gap" between the team's and consensus expectations of company growth.
  • Buy or sell decisions are rapidly executed when markets underreact to changes that impact the sustainability or strength of company growth.
  • All cap research coverage provides a complete view of industry dynamics and the competitive positioning of subject companies.
  • The team has used this process successfully for more than three decades.
