Friess Associates offers its growth-equity services through mutual funds that span the market-cap spectrum. The introduction of Friess Small Cap Growth Fund in May 2017 completed the market-cap menu, giving investors small-cap, mid-cap, large-cap and all-cap options to access the firm’s research-driven investment approach.
Although it is the shortest tenured mutual fund launched by Friess Associates, Friess Small Cap Growth Fund came to be after Friess Associates spent decades managing small-cap-focused portfolios exclusively for institutions and high-net-worth individuals. The fund makes the same time-tested investment approach that began guiding separate small-cap portfolios in the early 1980s available to a much broader range of investors. Friess Associates serves as advisor to Friess Small Cap Growth Fund.
Friess Associates started the Brandywine Funds family by launching the all-cap Brandywine Fund at the end of 1985. The firm introduced a large-cap fund, Brandywine Blue Fund, in 1991 and a mid-cap fund, Brandywine Advisors Mid Cap Growth Fund, in 2000. In 2013, the Brandywine Funds became part of the AMG Managers Funds family. Friess Associates continues to make all investment decisions for the AMG Managers Brandywine Funds as subadvisor.
