Congratulations to Polen Capital – they are still our Large Cap Growth manager!

Polen Capital’s 3-year numbers lead the pack, so it was an easy decision for the Board of the Franklin Regional Retirement System to vote today (November 30, 2016) to go another 7 years with these fine folks.

There were some very impressive numbers with the other 23 respondents. Thank you all for your interest.
