The Cooke & Bieler Concentrated Value Equity Composite has been examined for the period from January 1, 2018 through December 31, 2018. The verification and performance examination reports are available upon request.
The Cooke & Bieler Concentrated Value Equity Composite (Composite) whose inception date is July 1, 2015, currently includes all fully discretionary, fee paying, concentrated value equity portfolios managed for a full month. For investment purposes, we generally define concentrated portfolios as those consisting of 15 - 25 holdings. Holdings in this strategy generally have a market capitalization greater than $1.5b and are within the range of the Russell 3000® Index at initial time of purchase. Securities are selected using the firm’s fundamental, bottom-up approach. Portfolios are more concentrated and a subset of the All Cap Value Model Strategy. The Composite was created in August 2015.
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 0.85 of 1% per annum on the first $25 million of principal, 0.70 of 1% per annum on the next $25 million of principal, and 0.60 of 1% per annum on the balance, however fees are negotiable. As an example, the "cost" of the investment advisory fee of a $25 million portfolio is 0.85% 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 13.3% on a cumulative basis. Net of fee returns are calculated quarterly by deducting one quarter of the maximum fee rate for the respective period from the gross of fee Composite return.
For comparison purposes, the composite is measured against the Russell 3000® Value Index. The Russell 3000® Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 3000® companies with lower price-to-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.
