Small cap stocks have more than come into their own in the three plus
decades since the legendary small cap guru Chuck Royce revealed their
potential to the world of the investing. According to Royce, today there
are more than 3,100 U.S. companies identified as micro-cap with market
values of up to $500 million; more than 1,100 small-cap with market
values between $500 million and $2.5 billion.
That may seem like a lot, but when you add in foreign small to micro cap
company stocks the market inflates to more than 15,000 companies in
developed nations. As a result of the growing market and more
importantly, the exceptional opportunities that may lay ahead, Royce
decided to launch three new international funds.
