The Global Stock Fund seeks long-term growth of principal and income.
The Fund offers investors a highly selective, actively managed core global equity fund that invests in the U.S. and other developed countries as well as emerging markets, based on our analysis of fundamentals relative to current valuations. Generally, we:
- Target a diversified portfolio of equity securities, typically investing in medium-to-large, well-established companies that, in our opinion, appear to be temporarily undervalued by the stock market but have a favorable outlook for long-term growth.
- Select individual securities based on our analyses of various factors—including a company’s financial strength, economic condition, competitive advantage, quality of the business franchise, financially material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues, and the reputation, experience, and competence of its management—as weighed against valuation.
Meet the Fund’s Investment Committee
We believe investors benefit from our team-based approach to managing investments. Through close collaboration and debate, we bring our best ideas forward. The primary responsibilities of the Committee, whose members’ average tenure at Dodge & Cox is 24 years, include:
- Setting and reviewing global equity investment strategy, and continually assessing opportunities and risks to the portfolio.
- Evaluating and debating analyst recommendations and analyses to collaborate on buy, sell, and position-sizing decisions across individual holdings, sectors, and countries.
- Overseeing the strategy’s implementation and monitoring portfolio holdings, making changes when appropriate.
Investors should recognise that the market risks inherent in investing in securities cannot be avoided, and there is no assurance that the investment objectives of the Fund will be achieved. The value of Shares may fall as well as rise and investors may not receive back the amount invested. The Fund is subject to certain risks, such as investment risks, management risk, risks of investing in futures, options and forwards, risks relating to securities lending arrangements, umbrella structure of the Company and cross-liability risk., fair value pricing risks, taxation risk and currency conversion and hedging risk. A more detailed description of the risk factors that apply to the Fund is set out in the Prospectus.
