Polen’s Rob Forker answers who are the most patient investors

While individual small-cap stocks can be seen as higher risk, investing in the small-cap space – a breeding ground for breakthrough businesses – can be a thrilling pursuit that offers meaningful upside potential. The flip side is that many of these businesses can burn bright and fade fast, carrying more risk.

As long-term investors, the Polen Capital Small Company Growth Team seeks to find tomorrow’s leaders today by selectively and exclusively investing in 25-35 earlier lifecycle companies that can compound their growth year after year. As a benchmark agnostic manager, Polen Capital only look for the best companies globally.

The Portfolio Manager of the Polen Capital Global Small and Mid Cap Fund Rob Forker joined the popular U.S Animal Spirits podcast to discuss the team’s approach to finding international small company growth opportunities.
