The Brandes Global Opportunities Composite seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in the equity securities of both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers irrespective of equity market capitalizations. The relevant index for diversification measurement is the MSCI ACWI. With respect to investments in emerging markets companies, the composite may typically invest up to the greater of either (a) 40% of total assets in emerging markets and frontier countries, at the time of purchase or (b) 200% of the weighting of non-developed markets companies in the relevant index, at the time of purchase. The portfolios will have the ability to hold up to 15% of total assets (at the time of purchase) in non-equity securities, including fixed income and convertible bonds, and up to 10% of total assets (at the time of purchase) in exchange traded funds, mutual funds or closed end funds, including other Brandes managed mutual funds or other pooled vehicles. The portfolios will generally be fully invested; however, the Global Opportunities portfolios may hold up to 20% of the assets in cash or cash equivalents.
The MSCI ACWI with net dividends captures large and mid cap representation of developed and emerging markets. The benchmark returns are not covered by the report of independent verifiers.
The MSCI ACWI Value Index captures large and mid cap securities across developed and emerging markets exhibiting value style characteristics, defined using book value to price, 12 month forward earnings to price and dividend yield.
The portfolio characteristics shown relate to a single account deemed by Brandes to be generally representative of the strategy as of date noted. Not every account will have these exact characteristics. The actual characteristics with respect to any particular account will vary based on a number of factors including but not limited to: (i) the size of t he account; (ii) investment restrictions applicable to the account, if any; and (iii) market exigencies at the time of investment. Data is updated on a quarterly basis.
The results for individual accounts and for different periods may vary. Investors should not rely on prior performance results as a reliable indication of future results. Market conditions may impact performance. The performance results presented were achieved in particular market conditions which may not be repeated. Moreover, the current market volatility and uncertain regulatory environment may have a negative impact on future performance.
