Columbia - Select Small-Cap Value
Objective And StrategyObjective
Long-term capital growth.
StrategyThe Portfolio generally invests at least 80% of its net assets in the common stock of "value" companies with smaller market capitalization ($3 billion or less) at the time of purchase by the Portfolio. The Portfolio uses a bottom-up stock selection approach. This means that the investment manager concentrates on individual company fundamentals, rather than on a particular industry.
* This portfolio invests (or may invest) in securities of companies with micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization. Any investment in micro-, small-, or mid-capitalization companies involves greater risk than that customarily associated with investments in larger, more established companies because of the greater business risks of smaller size, limited markets and financial resources, narrower product lines, and frequent lack of management depth. As such, micro- or small-cap companies may be more subject to erratic and abrupt market movements than securities of larger, more established companies.
