By Aidan FarrellDirector of Global Small Cap Equity, Eaton Vance Advisers International Ltd.

In this paper, we present our analysis of factor returns for the global small-cap equity universe and explain why we believe long-term investment opportunities remain for the asset class. Our findings show that high-quality companies reaped attractive excess returns during the heightened volatility of Q1 2020, while strong balance sheets also proved critical in protecting capital. Given that targeting financially strong, high-quality companies at attractive valuations is core to our QVT investment philosophy, these findings are particularly relevant at this crucial time for small-cap investing.
