What is the U.S. Small & Mid-Cap SMA strategy?
At The Motley Fool, we've had the opportunity to explore a lot of different investing styles. I've done everything from growth with David on Rule Breakers to some of the value investing services.

Why did the Fool Wealth team decide to include U.S. Small & Mid-Cap as one of its seven signature SMA strategies?
Unless it IPO'd at that price, every large-cap company that started as a small- or mid-cap company had to grow into that price. Therefore, small- and mid-cap companies have an important role in an investor's portfolio, especially those that are trying to achieve growth and have long-term time horizons.
