Beginning with the introduction of "value" and "growth" stocks in the late 1930s, expanding to add the concept of "small cap" stocks in the early 1980s, and progressing to the mathematical formalization of Nobel Laureate William Sharpe in the late 1980s, the methodology of equity style is now an integral part of U.S. and non-U.S. equity analysis and portfolio management.
