Cooke & Bieler, L.P. claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS®) and has prepared and presented this report in compliance with the GIPS standards. Cooke & Bieler has been independently verified for the period January 1, 1993 through December 31, 2017.
Verification assesses whether (1) the firm has complied with all the composite construction requirements of the GIPS standards on a firm-wide basis and (2) the firm’s policies and procedures are designed to calculate and present performance in compliance with the GIPS standards. Verification does not ensure the accuracy of any specific composite presentation. The Small Cap Value Equity Composite has been examined for the period from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2017. The verification and examination reports are available upon request.
The Firm is defined as Cooke & Bieler, L.P., an independent investment management firm, and is registered as an investment adviser under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940. Registration does not imply a certain level of skill or training.
The Cooke & Bieler Small Cap Value Equity Composite (Composite), whose inception date is August 1, 2008, currently includes all fully discretionary, fee paying, small cap value equity portfolios managed for more than one month. During 2012, the minimum market value for inclusion in the composite was $500,000. Prior to 2012, the minimum market value for inclusion was $2,500. For investment purposes, small-cap equity investing is generally defined as investing in securities of companies whose market capitalizations are within the range of the Russell 2000® Index at the time of purchase. Securities are selected using the firm’s fundamental, bottom-up approach. Portfolios are more concentrated, typically holding approximately 40-60 securities. The Composite was created in April 2010.
Rates of return are expressed in U.S. dollars. Portfolios are valued monthly on a trade date basis. Portfolio returns reflect the reinvestment of dividend and interest income and are calculated using the Modified Dietz method. Composite returns are calculated monthly by weighting portfolio returns according to the size of each portfolio at the beginning of the month.
Performance returns are presented both gross and net of fees. Gross of fee returns do not reflect the deduction of our investment advisory fees. Individual client returns will be reduced by investment advisory fees and other expenses that it may incur in the management of its investment advisory account. Investment advisory fees are described in Part 2A of Form ADV. The standard fee agreement is 1.00 of 1% per annum on the first $20 million of principal, 0.90 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million, 0.85 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million, and 0.80 of 1% per annum on the balance; however, fees are negotiable. Effective 7/1/2016, net of fee returns are calculated monthly by deducting one twelfth of the maximum fee rate of 1% across all accounts in the composite. Net returns are net of any performance-based fees. Prior to 7/1/2016, net of fee returns reflect the deduction of actual management fees. As an example, the “cost” of the investment advisory fee of a $20 million portfolio is 1.00% on an annualized basis. In a ten-year period, the effect of the investment advisory fee may reduce a 5% annual return by as much as 15.6% on a cumulative basis.
The dispersion is the asset weighted standard deviation of portfolio returns represented within the Composite for the full year. For those annual periods with less than five portfolios included for the entire year, dispersion is not presented as it is not considered to be meaningful. A list of composite descriptions is available upon request. Policies for valuing portfolios, calculating performance, and preparing compliant presentations are also available upon request.
For comparison purposes, the composite is measured against the Russell 2000® Value Index. The Russell 2000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000® companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The index returns are provided to represent the investment environment existing during the time periods shown and are not covered by the report of independent verifiers. Each index is fully invested and includes the reinvestment of income. The returns for each index do not include any transaction costs, management fees, or other costs.

The three-year annualized ex-post standard deviation measures the variability of the composite (using gross returns) and the benchmark for the preceding 36-month period. The three-year annualized ex-post standard deviation is not required to be presented for periods prior to 2011 or when 36 monthly composite returns are not available. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
