Growth stocks enjoyed strong results in the fourth quarter, bringing full year 2017 returns on a net of fees basis to 36% for the Broadleaf Growth Equity Portfolio.  After lagging the major indices considerably last year, 2017 was certainly growth’s opportunity to shine. Our annualized returns are ahead of the S&P 500’s over the past three, five, and ten years and are also in the top quartile of large cap growth managers over the last one, three and ten year periods.
