Wasatch Mid Cap Growth Portfolio   

  • print

The Wasatch Mid Cap Growth Portfolio is a steady, mid and large cap growth portfolio aiming to provide long-term growth of capital.

About This Portfolio

Net Assets:$130.8 (million) as of 03/31/15
Account Minimum:$1 million

The primary investment objective of the Mid Cap Growth Portfolio is long-term growth of capital. Income is a secondary objective, but only when consistent with long-term growth of capital. Currently, we do not expect the Portfolio's investments to generate substantial income.


This portfolio invests primarily in mid- and large-cap growth companies at reasonable prices, typically $3 to 20 billion at the time of purchase. With a heritage of past performance for Wasatch, many of these companies are “graduates” of Wasatch small and micro cap portfolios. The Mid Cap Growth Portfolio will typically hold between 60 and 90 positions and may invest 10% to 20% of its total assets in foreign securities. We focus on companies that we consider to be high-quality and stable, and that have the potential to grow steadily for long periods of time. The Portfolio seeks to purchase stocks at prices we believe are reasonable relative to our projection of a company’s long-term earning growth rate.
