Returns represent past performance and do not guarantee future results. Investment return and share price will fluctuate with market conditions, and investors may have a gain or loss when shares are sold. Mutual fund performance changes over time and currently may be significantly lower than stated above. Performance is updated and published monthly.

 

The Class X shares inception date is May 2, 2022.  The returns shown prior to that date are for the Class I shares.  Class I shares inception date corresponds to the Fund’s inception date.

Dodge & Cox Global Bond Fund, L.L.C., a private fund managed and funded by Dodge & Cox (the “Private Fund”) was reorganized into the Fund and the Fund commenced operations on May 1, 2014. The Private Fund was organized as Delaware limited liability company and was treated as a disregarded entity under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). The Private Fund commenced operations on December 5, 2012, and had an investment objective, policies, and strategies that were, in all material respects, the same as those of the Fund, and was managed in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. However, the Private Fund was not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), and therefore was not subject to certain investment limitations, diversification requirements, liquidity requirements, and other restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act and the Code, which, if applicable, may have adversely affected its performance. The Fund’s performance for periods prior to the commencement of operations on May 1, 2014, is that of the Private Fund. The performance of the Private Fund has not been restated because the net total operating expense ratio of the Private Fund and the Fund are the same. Expense reimbursements have been in effect for the Fund since its inception. Without the expense reimbursements, returns for the Fund would have been lower.

All returns are stated in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise noted. The Funds’ total returns include the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions, but have not been adjusted for any income taxes payable by shareholders on these distributions or on Fund share redemptions.
