Explorer Small Cap Growth

Explorer Accounts: U.S. Equity


The Explorer Small Cap Growth Account invests primarily in faster-growing companies whose shares are at the lower end of the market-capitalization range. The portfolio manager tends to favor companies in up-and-coming industries or young firms in their early growth stages. These types of businesses are fast growing and often richly valued, so their stocks tend to be volatile. Stocks in the bottom 10% of the capitalization of the U.S. equity market are defined as small cap. Growth is defined based on fast growth (high growth rates for earnings, sales, book value, and cash flow) and high valuations (high price ratios and low dividend yields).

Overall Risk

The risk rating is based on the account’s past performance as compared to mutual funds and/or ETFs within the same category. It represents a starting point from which investors evaluate if the core makes sense for their own risk tolerance, suitability, goals and objectives. It is not a buy or sell recommendation. There are many types of risk, including interest rate, market, political, and currency. Each type of risk can affect the value of the securities in your account.
