The SMID Cap Value Equity Composite has been examined for the period from January 1, 2013 through December 31, 2022. The examination report is available upon request.
The Cooke & Bieler SMID Cap Value Equity Composite (Composite) whose inception date is January 1, 2004, includes all fully discretionary, fee paying, SMID cap value equity portfolios managed for more than one month. Prior to 2013, the market value minimum for inclusion was $1 million. For investment purposes, we generally define SMID cap equity securities as those of companies whose market capitalization is within the Russell 2500™ 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 2004.
The standard fee agreement is 0.90 of 1% per annum on the first $20 million, 0.80 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million, 0.75 of 1% per annum on the next $20 million, 0.70 of 1% per annum on the remaining balance, however fees are negotiable. Effective 1/1/2017, net of fee returns are calculated monthly by deducting one twelfth of the model fee rate of 0.90% across all accounts in the composite. Prior to 1/1/2017, net of fee returns reflect the deduction of actual management fees. As of 12/31/22, less than 3% of composite assets are custodied with a broker that does not charge trading expenses. Accounts custodied with other brokers will incur trading expenses, which may reduce returns.
For comparison purposes, the Composite is measured against the Russell 2500™ Value Index. The Russell 2500™ Value 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.
