DBF Diversified Core Equity Strategy
Future returns will depend on future allocation decisions. Both DBF returns and index returns reflect the reinvestment of dividends and other earnings. Indices are included for comparison purposes only and do not include transaction costs. Volatility, number of issues, capitalization size, year-to-year return history, and other security attributes of the indices differ from the attributes of DBF Portfolios. Past performance does not guarantee future results. Any investment, including DBF’s portfolios, has the potential of generating losses as well as profits.
Effective January 2005, the benchmark for the DBF Diversified Core Equity Composite is the MSCI All Country World Index (Gross) (MSCI ACWI). The MSCI ACWI is designed to measure the performance of the broad global equity markets. The index is free float-adjusted market-cap weighted and is comprised of 24 developed and 21 emerging market country indices. Prior to January 2005 the benchmark of the composite was the S&P 500 Index. The change, which was made on a prospective basis only, was prompted by the evolution of the strategy and the need to provide a benchmark that was more representative of the investment universe.
