AMG TimesSquare International Small Cap Fund focuses on firms with market values of $5 billion or less, but the fund can invest in businesses valued between $16 million and $8.3 billion.

Magnus Larsson and Robert Madsen run the fund with three analysts. Although headquartered in New York, the group is truly international. Larsson is Swedish, Madsen is Danish, one analyst hails from Taiwan, another is from Turkey and a third is French. The managers favor best-in-class companies with sustainable competitive advantages. And they won’t overpay; they scrutinize share price in relation to the cash a company generates.
