SMA Strategy

Perritt Capital Management is an Emerging Manager of microcap equities committed to serving the institutional investor market. The firm is independently owned and has been investing in micro-cap companies for over two decades with the same management team. Micro-cap equity is Perritt Capital Management's only institutional strategy. The firm's investment philosophy has been built on the research of Rolf Banz, a University of Chicago doctoral student who discovered the first crack in the foundation of the efficient market theory, dubbed "the small firm effect" (Journal of Financial Economics, vol. 9(1), pages 3-18, March, 1981). The "small firm effect" is the tendency of common stocks of small companies to outperform the stocks of large companies at equivalent levels of risk. Perritt Capital Management has an established infrastructure and staff capable of managing institutional level accounts. The firm has served as the advisor to The Perritt MicroCap Opportunities Fund (an Investment Company Act of 1940 registered mutual fund) for more than thirty years. As a result, firm qualifications include:
  • In-house compliance staff (the firm's current CCO has been in the investment industry for more than thirty years).
  • A client service team (more than sixty years combined experience) that seeks to provide superior service to institutional investors.
  • A back office staff (led by an individual with more than 20 years of experience in the mutual fund industry) that has proven successful at back office duties for a Registered Investment Company.
