The vast bulk of the firm’s holdings have traditionally been U.S. small-caps in the technology, health care and consumer segments.

Given its tilt towards high-growth areas, ANEFX makes for a great satellite position in a diversified portfolio. The fund is managed by Capital Research and Management Company.
