At Adirondack Funds we aren’t
just managers, we are shareholders.
Simply put, we eat our own cooking.
The Adirondack Small Cap Fund (ADKSX) is an owner operated, no-load mutual fund managed by Adirondack Research and Management since the fund’s inception in April 2005. At Adirondack Funds, we believe that the best opportunity for investment success is focusing on smaller companies that have fallen out of favor with investors. Our mission is to identify and monitor the most attractive small-cap turnaround situations before mainstream investors take notice. By assembling a diversified portfolio* of these opportunities we believe we can offer our shareholders compelling risk-adjusted returns over the long-run.
The Adirondack Team is proud of the results we’ve achieved for our shareholders. We are committed to incorporating independent thinking, patience and strict value criteria in choosing companies as investments. We also value our commitment to our partners and our community.
