The Mid Cap Value Equity Composite has been examined for the period from March 1, 1998 through December 31, 2018. The examination report is available upon request.
The Cooke & Bieler Mid Cap Value Equity Composite (Composite), whose inception date is March 1, 1998, currently includes all fully discretionary, fee paying, mid cap value equity portfolios managed for more than one month. During 2012, the market value for inclusion was $1 million. Prior to 2012, the minimum market value for inclusion was $2,500. For investment purposes, we generally define mid cap equity securities as those of companies whose market capitalization is within the Russell Midcap® Index at initial time of purchase. Securities are selected using the firm’s fundamental, bottom-up approach. Portfolios are more concentrated, typically holding approximately 40-50 securities. The Composite was created in March 1998.
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. The standard fee agreement is 0.75 of 1% on the first $25 million, 0.65 of 1% on the next $25 million and 0.58 of 1% per annum on the remaining balance, however fees are negotiable. As an example, the "cost" of the investment advisory fee of a $25 million portfolio is .75% on an annualized basis. In a ten-year period, the effect of the investment advisory fee will reduce a 5% annual return by as much as 11.8% on a cumulative basis. Effective 1/1/2017, net of fee returns are calculated monthly by deducting one twelfth of the maximum fee rate for the respective period across all accounts in the composite. Prior to 1/1/2017, net of fee returns reflect the deduction of actual management fees. As of 12/31/19, less than 1% of composite assets are custodied with a broker that does not charge trading expenses. Accounts custodied with other brokers may incur trading expenses, which may reduce returns.
For comparison purposes, the Composite is measured against the Russell Midcap® Value Index. The Russell Midcap® Value Index measures the performance of those companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth rates. The stocks are also members of the Russell 1000® Value index. 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.

The dispersion is measured using an asset weighted standard deviation of portfolio returns represented within the Composite for the full year. A list of composite descriptions is available upon request. Policies for valuing portfolios, calculating performance, and preparing compliant presentations are also available upon request.
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.
