The Small Cap Value Equity Composite has been examined for the period from January 1, 2011 through December 31, 2018. The examination report is available upon request.
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, we generally define small cap equity securities as those of companies whose market capitalization is greater than $350 million and within the Russell 2000® Index at initial time of purchase. Securities are selected using the firm’s fundamental, bottom-up approach. Portfolios are more concentrated, typically holding approximately 40-60 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. The standard fee agreement is 1% per annum on the first $20 million of principal; and 0.90 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million and 0.85 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million and 0.80 of 1% per annum on the remaining 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 and 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. 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 2000® Value Index. The Russell 2000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price/book ratios and lower forecasted growth rates. 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. Russell Investment Group is the source and owner of the trademarks, service marks and copyrights related to the Russell Indexes. Russell® is a trademark of Russell Investment Group.
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.
