Cambiar Investors - 2016 Final Capital Gain Distributions

The Cambiar Small Cap Fund is a team-managed portfolio designed to capitalize on U.S. small cap investments.  The Fund employs an equal-weight portfolio construction approach. We believe this approach enables the strategy to maintain a more focused portfolio relative to its peers, while also mitigating stock-specific risk via uniform position sizes.

  • All new stock positions enter the portfolio at a range of 1.5%-2% (based on liquidity). This construction is designed to reduce excessive stock-specific risk while allowing for the freedom to participate on the upside.
  • The investable universe for the strategy includes companies in the $500 million - $3 billion market cap range.
  • The Fund holds between 45-55 stocks.
  • The Fund is diversified across multiple sectors/industries.

Morningstar Rating™

The performance data quoted represents past performance. Past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Returns assume reinvestment of all dividend and capital gains distributions. Institutional Class Shares of the Fund commenced operations on October 31, 2008. As a result, the performance information provided for Institutional Class Shares incorporates the returns of Investor Class Shares of the Fund for periods before October 31, 2008. Institutional Class Shares would have substantially similar performance as Investor Class Shares because the shares are invested in the same portfolio of securities and the annual returns would generally differ only to the extent that total expenses of Institutional Class Shares are lower.

Disclosure

Mutual fund investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal. In addition to the normal risks associated with investing, investments in smaller companies typically exhibit higher volatility. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its stated objectives.

To determine if a Fund is an appropriate investment for you, carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors and charges and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus which can be obtained by clicking here or calling 1-866-777-8227. Please read it carefully before investing. There is no guarantee that the Funds will meet their stated objectives.

Performance data quotes are past performance and does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost and current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. For performance data current to the most recent month-end, please call 1-866-777-8227.

The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods. CAMSX was rated against 653 US-domiciled Small Blend funds over a three year time period, 554 funds over a five year period and 393 funds over a ten year period. With respect to these small blend funds, CAMSX received a Morningstar rating of 1 stars for the three year, 1 stars for the five year period, and 2 stars for the 10 year period, respectively. Performance is no guarantee of future results.

Price/Earnings F1Y is a calculation that divides the current share price by the estimates of earnings in the next four quarters. Debt/Equity - Long Term is a calculation that takes interest bearing, long-term debt divided by shareholder equity. EPS Growth - Long Term is a calculation that takes the company’s estimated profits for five years divided by the outstanding shares. Active share is a holdings-based measure of active management representing the percentage of securities in a portfolio that differ from those in the benchmark index. Alpha is a measure of risk-adjusted performance. Beta is a measure of risk in relation to the market or benchmark. The Sharpe Ratio is a direct measure of reward-to-risk and is calculated by subtracting the risk free rate from the rate of return for a portfolio and dividing the result by the standard deviation. Standard Deviation is a statistical measure of historical volatility; a measure of the extent to which numbers are spread around their average. R-Squared measures how closely a portfolio’s performance correlates with the performance of a benchmark index.  These calculations are not a forecast of the Fund’s future performance.

The Russell 2000™ Index measures the performance of the 2,000 smallest companies in the Russell 3000 Index. Russell 2000™ Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 2000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The Russell 2000 and Russell 2000 Value returns do not reflect any management fees, transaction costs or expenses. Indexes are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.  

Price to Earnings (P/E) – is the ratio for valuing a company that measures its current share price relative to its per-share earnings. Forward P/E - uses forecasted earnings for the P/E calculation. These are not measures of a fund’s future performance.

Earnings per Share (EPS) –  is the portion of a company's profit allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. Forecast EPS – uses forecasted earnings allocated to each outstanding share of common stock. These are not measures of a fund’s future performance.

Free Cash Flow (FCF) - is a measure of a company's financial performance, calculated as operating cash flow minus capital expenditures.

Standard Deviation - is a statistical measurement; when applied to the annual rate of return of an investment, it sheds light on the historical volatility of that investment.
