Talking with Charles Dreifus About Micro Cap & Small Cap Investments

19 Years at Royce Funds and counting for Mr. Charles Dreifus.  Charlie R. Dreifus manages the firm’s Special Equity mutual funds that attempt to combine classic value analysis, the identification of good businesses, and accounting cynicism. In 2008, he was named Morningstar's Domestic-Stock Fund Manager of the Year.

Prior to joining Royce in 1998, Mr. Dreifus was a General Partner and Managing Director and a Limited Managing Director of Lazard Freres & Co., LLC. He was also the Portfolio Manager of Lazard Special Equity Portfolio, formerly Lazard Special Equity Fund and Special Equity separate accounts. Prior to that, he was employed by Oppenheimer & Co. as a Limited Partner and as the manager of Quest For Value Fund (from May 1980 to November 1982) and by Oppenheimer Capital as an Executive Vice President.

Mr. Dreifus holds a bachelor's degree from the City College of New York/Baruch School and a Masters of Business Administration from Baruch College. He is a CFA® charterholder.

"A deep understanding of accounting principles gives me a chance to get at the veracity of a company's finances by scrutinizing the financial reports… I spend a lot of time going over the numbers. Frankly, I benefit, because not everyone does."   — Charles R. Dreifus

Royce Funds has built itself into a leader in the small cap investing space and as we have said many times here on, you should want to learn from the best.  See an interview with Mr. Dreifus here:
