Managed by

William A. Hench

Born in New York in 1964, William Hench attended Adelphi University in his home city. He trained as a certified public accountant with Coopers and Lybrand before joining JP Morgan as a principle on the equities desk. He is currently portfolio manager at Royce & Associates, where he implements a value investment style, focussing on small- and micro-cap companies with low price-to-book and price-to-sales ratios. He seeks to identify companies trading at discounts to his estimate of their worth that fall within one of four distinctive themes: unrecognised asset values; turnarounds; undervalued growth; and interrupted earnings.

Objective

The Fund seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing at least 70% of its Total Asset Value in a diversified portfolio of equity securities issued by small- and micro-cap U.S. companies (market capitalisations of less than USD 2.5 billion). The Sub-Investment Manager attempts to take advantage of what it believes are opportunistic situations for undervalued securities.
