Realize a total return exceeding the MSCI ACWI Small-Cap Index over a full market cycle.

Investment Strategy

The Oberweis Global Opportunities strategy seeks to capitalize on the exceptional growth potential of smaller companies that are often underfollowed or misunderstood by traditional Wall Street research analysts. The strategy invests in companies where our expectations for earnings growth differ from consensus expectations. Global Opportunities invests in both in U.S. and international markets, targeting companies with market capitalizations of less than $1.5 billion or within the range of companies represented in the MSCI ACWI Small-Cap Index, whichever is greater. Portfolio companies often boast exciting products and/or services, a strong and sustainable competitive position, and the potential for upward revisions in earnings expectations in the future. Our fundamental research process is specifically designed to uncover such opportunities.


  • Access to one of the least efficient segments of the equity market
  • Potential for significant alpha over a full market cycle
  • Disciplined and repeatable investment process managed by a passionate and experienced investment team
  • Fundamental research process specifically designed to uncover small-cap companies that are underfollowed or misunderstood by traditional Wall Street research analysts

  • Diversified portfolio with a focus on risk management

Our Process

Our process rests on our firmwide commitment to uncovering and capitalizing on the persistent and recurring stock pricing inefficiencies in global equities caused by a lag in investor response to new information. This lag in recognizing the catalysts likely to positively impact future earnings growth drives the security selection across all our strategies and mutual funds. The criteria used within each product, however, can differ. This is how our investment team implements our philosophy in the Global Opportunities strategy.
