When designing our Mid Cap Core Equity fund, we realized that stock investors often find the best long-term return potential from companies overlooked by Wall Street analysts. The mid-cap stock universe doesn’t always receive the broad attention its larger and smaller siblings receive. Nevertheless, these overlooked stocks may represent the market’s “sweet spot,” exhibiting attractive characteristics of large and small companies. For example, mid-cap companies typically have successfully emerged from the small-cap universe with many qualities that rival their large-cap counterparts, including experienced management teams, robust market presence, broad sales and distribution networks, and access to capital markets. At the same time, similar to the benefits driving their small-cap brethren, many mid-cap companies still benefit from their founding entrepreneurial spirit, which can speed up decision-making and fuel rapid growth. Furthermore, mid-cap companies are often acquisition targets, eyed by larger companies seeking to grow market share, offer new products, or enter new markets.
Cavanal Hill Investment Management has been managing mid-cap stock portfolios for more than 10 years via its Mid Cap Core Quantitative Equity Strategy. Effective December 31, 2016, this strategy became available to mutual fund investors as the Cavanal Hill Mid Cap Core Equity Fund.
