Laurus Investment Counsel Inc. (“Laurus” or the “Firm”), a leading independent asset management firm, is pleased to announce today the addition of their Global Small Cap investment fund along with the appointment of Scott Caffrey as Vice President, Marketing and Client Services.

The addition of the global small cap investment fund rounds out the series of small cap investment products managed by Laurus. “We have provided our clients with very high quality small cap products in Canada and the United States, and are responding to increasing demand from institutional sponsors to broaden our reach,” said Christopher Page, President and Chief Executive Officer. “Our investment philosophy of owning concentrated portfolios of exceptional growth companies with sustainable competitive advantages lends itself well to the global market, and we’re excited by the opportunities presenting themselves for investment.”

“We believe our competitive edge rests on the quality of our research,” said Linda Lebrun, Chief Investment Officer. “The depth and skill of our investment team, our emphasis on business quality and portfolio concentration, combined with our patience and long term focus leads us to expect we can provide global small cap investors with above average, long term risk-adjusted returns as we do in our other portfolio strategies.”

The addition of Scott Caffrey launches the entry of Laurus’ US and global small cap products into the United States as well as his support with developing client relationships in Canada. “Scott joins us with considerable credentials and an excellent record of assisting intermediaries in their search for quality investment counsel,” said Page. “His addition will support the growth of clients throughout North America.”
