Brian T. Bares, CFA, is a research analyst with Bares Capital Management, Inc. He founded the firm in 2000 with the belief that concentrated portfolios of inefficiently priced small companies could lead to high relative compounding. His firm manages the institutional portfolios of small-cap and micro-cap common stocks in long-only, replicated separate accounts. Mr. Bares began his career by working his way up from the bottom. From compliance and operations, to trading and portfolio management, he garnered experience in nearly all aspects of running a boutique small-cap management company before starting his own company. He graduated from the University of Nebraska with a degree in mathematics. His investment philosophy and strategy have been profiled in Value Investor Insight and the Manual of Ideas: Portfolio Manager's Review. Mr. Bares holds the Chartered Financial Analyst designation and is a member of the CFA Society of Austin. He resides in Austin, Texas, with his wife and two sons.
The historical returns of small-cap stocks have exceeded those of mid-cap and large-cap stocks over long time periods. The additional return experienced by small-cap investors has occurred despite inherent disadvantages in the asset class. The excess return available from small-cap stocks can help large foundations, endowments, and other similar institutional investors overcome the drag of inflation and the drain of annual spending. These institutional investors are in a unique position to fund new and often untested managers who are in the best position to benefit from the return premium of small-cap stocks and from the relative lack of professional participation in the space. The Small-Cap Advantage: How Top Endowments and Foundations Turn Small Stocks into Big Returns is a must-have book for aspiring and existing small-cap managers and the institutions that would hire them. It is an insider's account of institutional small-cap investing. The book details the investment, fundraising, and operational challenges encountered by small-cap managers. It also: Describes the evaluation issues encountered by institutions in their small-cap manager due diligence Reveals why small-cap stocks are a fertile hunting ground for investors seeking high returns over long time periods Details how top foundations, endowments, and other institutional investors can procure exposure to small-cap stocks through allocations to specialist managers Explores the reasons for small company outperformance and reveals how returns can be further enhanced through the careful avoidance of problem companies Explains why the small-cap space is ideal for active management and why passive indexing may not be an optimal strategy for this asset class The Small-Cap Advantage helps aspiring small-cap managers understand the state of the institutional investment management industry. It debunks the notion that small-cap managers who lack long track records or high levels of assets under management are undeserving of institutional funding. It explains the fundraising process for aspiring small-cap managers and how they can handle many of the challenges that come with successfully increasing strategy assets. The Small-Cap Advantage provides endowment-model institutions with a deeper understanding of the unique issues faced by specialist boutique managers who focus on the small-cap space. It will also assist institutional due diligence teams in their evaluation of small-cap managers.
"The historical advantages of small-caps as an asset class are well documented, but not realized by profit-maximizing managers who allow asset bloat, nor by institutions who follow their peers down the beaten path to invest with such managers. Brian Bares is willing to speak the hard truth about small-cap investing: market-beating returns are generated by managers who cap assets and concentrate."—Patrick Dorsey, Director of Equity Research, Morningstar; author, The Five Rules for Successful Stock Investing and The Little Book That Builds Wealth "Brian Bares is the Warren Buffett of small and micro-cap stocks, and his book, The Small-Cap Advantage is a masterpiece of practical, Buffett-like wisdom. Whether you are a new investor or have been in the markets for decades, you will find this book full of insights!"—D. Ellen Shuman, VP and Chief Investment Officer, Carnegie Corporation of New York "Brian Bares is a rare breed of professional investment manager. He excels in the requisite skills of investment acumen, hard work, and discipline while remaining philosophically grounded as a true 'clients first' fiduciary of his investors' capital. With The Small-Cap Advantage, Brian has written in a clear and accessible manner the most comprehensive 'how to' book available for anyone interested in becoming a small-cap manager, or hiring one."—Thruston Morton, CEO and CIO, Global Endowment Managements A world-renowned money manager shares winning strategies for small-stock investing Bigger is not better.
