A Concentrated Fund With Surprising Downside Protection
RiverPark/Wedgewood's highly concentrated portfolio may sometimes be out of step with the market, but overall the fund has provided investors with a good risk/reward proposition.
Dan Culloton: The Fund Medalist of the Week is RiverPark/Wedgewood (RWGFX). It's a fund run by a group of subadvisors in St. Louis, Missouri. It's a concentrated growth fund.
The reason why we like this fund is because they don't try to out-trade anybody or out-asset-allocate anybody. What they try to do is stay within their circle of competence, which is knowing a few stocks very, very well and buying them when they are inefficiently priced and holding them for the long term.
