Overview

Objectives

Dodge & Cox International Stock Fund seeks long-term growth of principal and income.

Investment approach

The Fund offers investors a highly selective, actively managed core international equity fund that typically invests in companies in developed markets, (excluding the U.S.), and emerging markets, based on our analysis of companies’ fundamentals relative to their current valuations. Generally, we:

  • Target a diversified portfolio of equity securities issued by medium-to-large, well-established non-U.S. 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.

Dividends and capital gains (if any) are distributed annually in December.

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 23 years, include:
 

  • Setting and reviewing international 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.

Our Committee members are shareholders of Dodge & Cox and invest in the International Stock Fund.
