FAM Small Cap Fund Launches Share Class For Institutional Investors: Lower Expense Ratio

January 12, 2016

Fenimore Asset Management, the investment advisor to FAM Funds, today announced that Institutional Shares are now available for its distinctive FAM Small Cap Fund. The new ticker symbol for the Institutional Shares is FAMDX. The FAM Small Cap Fund seeks to maximize long-term return on capital with a concentrated portfolio of 20 to 30 holdings and focuses on quality companies in the smaller end of the small-cap space.

The FAM Small Cap Fund Institutional Shares provides an opportunity for Registered Investment Advisors and Financial Professionals to invest at a lower expense ratio in exchange for a higher minimum investment. The minimum investment for the newly launched share class is $1 million.

“FAM Small Cap Institutional Shares may complement an investment advisor’s existing small-cap holdings in two key ways,” said Anne Putnam, Vice President of Intermediaries. “First, the Fund is very concentrated and can provide balance alongside a diversified fund. Second, we seek to mitigate risk through our in-depth research process and focus on quality companies,” Ms. Putnam added. 

About FAM Funds
Fenimore Asset Management, the independent investment advisor to FAM Funds, was established in 1974 with a focus on long-term, value investing. Its genesis came from the astute sale of a quality, successful, family business. Fenimore invests in companies that exhibit those same top-notch characteristics at what it appraises to be discounted prices.

While having the upside potential of concentrated small- to mid-cap portfolios, the manager seeks to mitigate risk and preserve capital through its in-depth research process and active management. It is this same steadfast investment approach that has helped Fenimore navigate multiple economic and financial market cycles.

FAM Funds includes the FAM Value Fund (FAMVX), FAM Equity-Income Fund (FAMEX), and FAM Small Cap Fund (FAMFX & FAMDX). For more information please visit famfunds.com.
