      ID48349 01-05 Why Wells Fargo Small Cap Value Equity? Performance is historical and does not guarantee future results.
    • 13. WELLS FARGO SMALL CAP VALUE EQUITY
        • We believe the Small Cap market is largely inefficient. We add value by seeking to exploit these inefficiencies through bottom-up security selection.
        • Our Small Cap Value philosophy is to invest in undervalued, under-followed companies with an unrecognized positive dynamic for change.
        • We believe that investing in companies that have modest valuation will limit downside risk while providing opportunity for significant portfolio outperformance.
      ID48351 01-05 Investment Philosophy
    • 14. WELLS FARGO SMALL CAP VALUE EQUITY
        • Wells Fargo’s Small Cap Value investment process combines both quantitative analysis and fundamental research. Approximately 70%-80% of our security selection process focuses on fundamental research in order to confirm or reject the results of the quantitative screens.
        • We construct client portfolios that seek to provide attractive risk/return characteristics. This is accomplished through careful security selection and adherence to strict risk controls and a consistent sell discipline.
