Over a year after the coronavirus pandemic quickly derailed small caps, David Barr, manager of the bronze-rated Pender Small Cap Opportunities F, is now starting to see investors coming back to the small-cap space.

“It’s the first time we’ve seen this since probably 2016 or 2017,” says Barr, a portfolio manager at PenderFund Capital Management in Vancouver. “We’ve got some green shoots of interest which hopefully will close the gap between small-cap and large-cap stocks.”
