We'll -- Taylor says that in this volatile environment it is all about small caps and big growth over the long term -- -- core growth fund manager.

It -- in the beginning of the year we saw this huge pop in the Russell one candidate that the Russell is performing.
Rather strongly at more than 7% your fund isn't quite matching that are you gonna stick what that's small cap the.
Oh absolutely well thank you for having me you know we're small cap investors.
-- the fund I run as the core growth fund which is a small cap strategy focused on what we think are the highest quality companies in the small cap universe.
And the wonderful thing about small caps is that I have thousands of companies to pick and choose from to build a -- name portfolio and it.
Having that I can always find interest in growers.
Well plus talk about what exactly is and -- that's in particular sorry your call holdings because I'm wondering if you might have to reevaluate just a little like considering where you are -- Your benchmark at this point you've got -- part.
Incorporated that got us your biggest holding right now is -- apart Lifetime Fitness idexx alliance data.

Over all -- do you think that at this point in the year that -- any considering where the markets are you can make that case for small caps or do you think that.

And you're going to find more growth in the small cap space and you're going to be able to pick and choose from a wider.
Batch of companies to find those growers.
Large caps right now you can make the case they're they're interest thing they're cheaper than they've been historically.
Some of them pay very nice dividends.
But at the end of it at the end of the day they're very beholden to the overall growth of the economy which we expect to be -- a little bit sluggish.
-- -- what you've also got a lot of holdings within the industrial sector that seems to be kind of a -- theme for you.
Within small -- what is it about industrials -- -- like -- now.
Well we're not making a macro call and industrials -- say we just happen to find some very interest in companies with competitive advantages.
