The Brandes Global Small Cap Equity Composite seeks to achieve long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in equity securities of U.S. and non-U.S. issuers with equity market capitalizations of $2.5 billion or less at the time of purchase. Generally, no more than 30% of the value of the composite’s total assets, measured at the time of purchase, may be invested in securities of companies located in emerging and frontier countries throughout the world. Small capitalization securities involve greater issuer risk than large capitalization securities, and the markets for such securities may be more volatile and less liquid.
