We are proud to report that our two flagship innovation-focused portfolios, Beagle Leading Innovators and Humboldt Global Innovators, continue to deliver considerable value on both a relative and absolute basis for our clients.

Just five months shy of reaching its three-year track record, we believe the Beagle Leading Innovators strategy’s two-year gross annualized return of 41.4% is especially noteworthy relative to traditional growth alternatives. See important information below on gross and net performance.*

While past performance by no means predicts future results, we believe these rankings are a testament to the investment team's focus on identifying leading innovative businesses driving structural change across the global economy. We believe innovation-focused strategies may have an advantage over traditional growth strategies.
