The results for individual accounts and for different periods may vary.  Investors should not rely on prior performance results as a reliable indication of future results. Market conditions may impact performance. The performance results presented were achieved in particular market conditions which may not be repeated. Moreover, the current market volatility and uncertain regulatory environment may have a negative impact on future performance.
As of September 30, 2013, Brandes Investment Partners includes the non-SMA Division of Brandes Investment Partners L.P., Brandes Investment Partners (Europe) Limited, Brandes Investment Partners (Asia) Pte Ltd and the Brandes Investment Partners & Co. assets sub-advised by Brandes Investment Partners, L.P. The firm was redefined to reflect the expansion of the organization. As of January 1, 2006, Brandes Investment Partners was divided into two separate divisions: the SMA Division of Brandes Investment Partners, which acts as a discretionary manager to SMA or “wrap fee” program clients, including those who may invest in an SMA product; and the non-SMA Division of Brandes Investment Partners (Brandes), which acts as a discretionary manager for all other types of clients which may include pooled investment vehicles, institutional accounts and high net worth clients outside of wrap fee programs. Although the divisions may share portfolio management and other personnel, each division serves a particular target market, may trade in a different manner and may offer investment advice which differs from the other depending upon the individualized needs of the clients served. The performance data presented does not contain any SMA Division accounts.
The Brandes Global Opportunities Composite seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing primarily in the equity securities of both U.S. and non-U.S. issuers irrespective of equity market capitalizations. The relevant index for diversification measurement is the MSCI ACWI. With respect to investments in emerging markets companies, the composite may typically invest up to the greater of either (a) 40% of total assets in emerging markets and frontier countries, at the time of purchase or (b) 200% of the weighting of non-developed markets companies in the relevant index, at the time of purchase. The portfolios will have the ability to hold up to 15% of total assets (at the time of purchase) in non-equity securities, including fixed income and convertible bonds, and up to 10% of total assets (at the time of purchase) in exchange traded funds, mutual funds or closed end funds, including other Brandes managed mutual funds or other pooled vehicles. The portfolios will generally be fully invested; however, the Global Opportunities portfolios may hold up to 20% of the assets in cash or cash equivalents.
