4.Accounts that experience cash flows of 10% or more will be temporarily removed from the composite for one month; this policy applies to all periods.

5.The composite invests in global stocks through ADRs and securities in emerging market countries that have an expected positive dividend yield and a market capitalization typically above $500 million. Holdings that do not achieve the expected dividend yield may be considered for sale.
6.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.
7.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.
8.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.
9.The composite creation date is July 1, 2010, and the composite inception date is June 30, 2010. DRZ’s list of composite descriptions is available upon request.
10.The gross-of-fees returns are net of transaction costs.
11.Net-of-fees returns are calculated by deducting a model management fee of 0.067% using the highest management fee of 0.80% from the monthly gross-of fee composite return. Starting in 2020 the fee schedule was revised retroactively from 90 to 80bps.
12.DRZ’s standard fee schedule for Emerging Markets Value is 0.80% on all amounts.
13.Internal dispersion is calculated using the equal-weighted standard deviation of annual gross-of-fee 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 gross-of-fee returns 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.
