Franklin Royce Global Small Cap Premier Fund

Fund Description

Invests primarily in global small-cap stocks that Royce believes are “premier” small-cap companies, those with discernible competitive advantages, high returns on invested capital, and a sustainable franchise. Global small cap companies are those similar in size to companies in the MSCI All Country World (ACWI) Small Cap Index.

Small Cap Opportunities: Focuses on leading quality companies, those with low debt, the ability to generate excess cash flow, and attractive prospects that are selling at prices Royce believes do not fully reflect these attributes.

Low Research Coverage: Many global small cap stocks have little or no analytical coverage from brokerage firms, potentially increasing the opportunity to find high quality companies selling at valuations that Royce believes understates their true worth.
