FdE’s investment management approach is based on an in-depth knowledge of the companies in which they invest. This enables them to overcome financial market fluctuations. The firm’s fund management teams systematically meet and discuss with the companies’ leaders and decision-makers to garner an in-depth understanding of the companies in which they invest. Before any investment takes place in-depth financial analyses are carried out based on a dynamic view of the company and the markets to ascertain the following: a buy price above which the firm would not consider it judicious to purchase shares in the company; a target sell price based on a medium-term valuation and which dictates that once the shares achieve that target, they will be divested from the firm’s portfolio.

Grandeur Peak employs a bottom-up investment approach that is based on disciplined global screening, rigorous company due diligence and emphasis on valuation. They are long-term investors that seeks to identify and invest in companies that have the potential for significant growth potential over the next 5 years or more. The firm’s primary focus is on publically traded micro- to mid-cap companies ($50 million-$10 billion in market-cap), but they may purchase small- and larger-cap companies as well. Grandeur Peak prefers to invest in best-in-class growth companies that are relatively undiscovered and also looks for “fallen angels” e.g., growth companies that have hit a bump in the road, but which the firm believes can regain their footing and return to growth. The portfolios are invested in companies domiciled in developed, emerging, and frontier markets. The firm does not use allocation models to restrict investments to certain regions, countries, or industries.
