CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jan 2, 2014) - Geneva Advisors has launched two new mutual funds that aim to provide clients with additional return opportunities by seeking investments in companies with strong earnings and revenue growth, and dominant competitive positions.
The new Small Cap Opportunities and Mid Cap Growth Funds are managed by the same teams who have been managing Geneva's small- and mid-cap strategies in a separate account format and have proven track records. The two new funds bring Geneva Advisors' mutual fund offerings to five.
"The Small Cap Opportunities and Mid Cap Growth Funds are a logical extension of our firm's growth," said Tom Bruns, Director of Intermediary Sales for Geneva Advisors. "We are now able to offer our strong capabilities in the small- and mid-cap space in the advisor- and investor-friendly mutual fund structure."
"We have started to see stock correlations decline -- the type of environment in which our strategies have the potential to add significant value," adds Dan Delany, a portfolio manager for the small- and mid-cap funds at Geneva Advisors. "In my opinion, this makes it an opportune time to launch our new mutual funds."
The tickers for the Small Cap Opportunities and Mid Cap Growth Funds are as follows: Geneva Advisors Small Cap Opportunities Fund -- Class I: GNOIX; Class R: GNORX; Geneva Advisors Mid Cap Growth Fund -- Class I: GNMIX; Class R: GNMRX.
