Mr. Vogel is a Managing Director of Silvercrest, and has been the Portfolio Manager of the Fund since its December 2011 inception.

The ASTON/Silvercrest Small Cap Fund seeks to invest in quality companies identified by strong financial statements and transparent businesses trading at a discount to relative or intrinsic value.
The Fund seeks to provide long-term capital appreciation.
Small- and mid-cap stocks are considered riskier than large-cap stocks due to greater potential volatility and less liquidity. Value investing often involves buying the stocks of companies that are currently out of favor that may decline further. Securities of REITs may be affected by changes in the value of their underlying properties and by defaults by borrowers or tenants.
