Tygh Capital believes that stock prices follow earnings over the long term.  The firm uses fundamental research to identify companies that meet the following criteria:

  • A minimum of 15% revenue and earnings growth potential for at least the next two years; 

  • Sustainable valuations from the time of purchase; and

  • At least 20% upside to price target over a 12 month time horizon. 


Intensive bottom-up fundamental research focusing on sustainable growth and superior cash flow generation drives stock selection.  Tygh believes a portfolio made up of stocks with these characteristics is most likely to generate excess returns over a full market cycle.

The TCM Small Cap Growth Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses must be carefully considered before investing.

The Fund invests in smaller and medium sized companies, which involve additional risks such as limited liquidity and greater volatility than large capitalization companies.

Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, eco­nomic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater in emerging markets. Growth-oriented funds may underperform when value investing is in favor.

Earnings growth is not a measure of the Fund's future performance.
