William Blair Large Cap Growth Strategy
Focus on Growing Companies in Growing Industries
Our quality growth investment philosophy in the large-cap market segment focuses on identifying growing companies in growing industries—what we call structurally advantaged companies.
Quality Growth Companies
The investment team seeks to invest in large-cap, structurally advantaged companies that are likely to grow their share of an industry growing at least as fast as the overall economy.
The strategy’s focus on the long term helps the investment team exploit inefficiencies derived from the short-term focus of other investors.
Concentrated, Conviction-Based Portfolio
A concentrated portfolio of 30 to 40 stocks that is diversified across sectors, which may provide a smoother relative performance experience for investors.
SEEKING TO EXPLOIT MARKET INEFFICIENCIES
Traditional Quality Growth
Companies whose growth is faster and/or more durable than the market appreciates due to most investors’ shorter-term focus
Fallen Quality Growth
Companies exhibiting non-linear growth or facing a short-term issue that causes investors who have less extensive knowledge of the company to overreact
