Fund Description

The Columbia Acorn International Fund Class Z (ACINX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to aggressively grow an investor’s capital over the long term. The fund hones in on small- and mid-cap international stocks that management believes can develop into major firms in the future. ACINX uses various growth-at-reasonable-price metrics to find these stocks. There is no sector requirement, however, the firm has historically been very tech heavy.

With its focus on small- and mid-cap international growth stocks, ACINX should be used as a sub-core position in a portfolio. The fund is managed by Columbia Threadneedle Investments.
