Small-Caps: The Forgotten Asset Class

Only one asset class has "beaten" inflation each and every decade since the 1930s.

Featuring Francis Gannon and Maggie Lake

Jun 27, 2022 • 28 minutes

Since the 1930s, small-cap stocks have outperformed inflation in every single decade. It’s the only asset class to do so. Now, with inflation giving rise to a new interest-rate regime, small-caps could offer investors refuge and opportunity in these difficult and volatile markets, according to Francis Gannon. Gannon is co-chief investment officer of Royce Investment Partners, a firm that’s specialized in small-cap investing since the early 1970s. In conversation with Real Vision’s Maggie Lake, Gannon explains what investors need to know about this asset class and how small-cap stocks fit investor portfolios amid an economic slowdown.
