DRZ has been independently verified for the periods March 31, 1995 through December 31, 2019 by The Spaulding Group. The verification report is available upon request. Verification assesses whether (1) the firm has complied with all the composite construction requirements of the GIPS standards on a firm-wide basis and (2) the firm’s policies and procedures are designed to calculate and present performance in compliance with the GIPS standards.

- The composite invests in global stocks through ADRs and securities in emerging market countries that have a dividend yield greater than its respective country average yield and a market capitalization typically above $200 million.
- Past performance is not indicative of future results. The actual return and value of an account will fluctuate and at any point could be worth more or less than the amount invested. Individual account performance will vary according to individual client investment objectives.
- The benchmark is the MSCI Emerging Markets Index (“Index”) which is a free float-adjusted market capitalization index of companies in emerging markets. The Index captures approximately 2,600 mid and large cap securities across more than two dozen emerging market countries. DRZ’s Emerging Markets portfolios generally consists of 50-80 securities and do not have exposure to all countries included in the Index. While the Index is believed to the most relevant benchmark, material differences exist between the Index and DRZ’s managed portfolios.
- Total time-weighted rates of return are expressed in US dollars. Computations include the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains. For investments in ADRs and foreign domiciled companies, dividends are included net of any withholding taxes.
- The composite was created in July 2010. DRZ’s list of composite descriptions is available upon request. This composite requires a minimum asset level of $1,000,000 (one million dollars) for inclusion.
- Net performance returns are calculated by deducting the highest investment advisory fee as of the date the performance is computed.
- DRZ’s standard fee schedule for Emerging Markets Value is 0.90% on all amounts.
- Internal dispersion is calculated using the equal-weighted standard deviation of annual gross returns of those portfolios that were included in the composite for the entire year; it is not presented for periods with 5 or fewer portfolios. The three-year annualized ex-post standard deviation measures the variability of the composite and the benchmark returns over the preceding 36 months period. The composite doesn’t have the three-year annualized standard deviation for 2011 and 2012 because 36 monthly returns are not available. The three-year ex-post standard deviation is not required for periods prior to 2011.
- Starting January 2019 the percentage of total firm assets has been replaced with total firm assets.
