Global Equity

The Cambiar Global Equity strategy is structured as a ‘best ideas’ vehicle, whereby sourcing of new ideas will come from Cambiar’s existing domestic and international portfolios. 

The strategy has the ability to seek investment opportunities from across the globe, making it Cambiar's most diversified product offering.

  • Flexibility to invest in all corners of the world.
  • Equal-weighted approach - All new stock positions enter the portfolio at 2% position sizes. This construction is designed to reduce excessive stock-specific risk, while allowing for the freedom to participate on the upside. 
  • Portfolio will take a broadly neutral weight relative to the U.S. and international exposure relative to the benchmark.
  • The strategy attempts to hold between 45-55 stocks.

Performance Charts

Inception Date: 2.28.1998.  The performance information depicted above represents Cambiar’s Global Equity Composite. Returns are presented gross (g) and net (n) of management fees. Gross and net returns are reduced by transaction expenses. Net returns are also reduced by actual investment advisory fees and other expenses that may be incurred in the management of the account. For the periods of 2013 to the present, the gross returns reflect accounts with both gross and “pure” gross performance. “Pure” gross returns, applicable to SMA portfolios, are not reduced by any expenses, which includes transaction costs, and are provided as supplemental information. Brokerage firms which sponsor SMA fee programs apply bundled fees which may include transactions costs, investment management, portfolio monitoring, consulting services, and in some cases, custodial service fees. Net returns for SMA portfolios are calculated by subtracting actual SMA fees reported by the SMA sponsor. Net of fees performance reflects a blended fee schedule of all accounts within the Global Equity Composite. Cambiar clients and mutual fund investors may incur actual fee rates that are greater or less than the rate reflected in this performance summary. Results are reported in U.S. dollars.
Performance results for the Global Equity Composite are evaluated against the MSCI World Index. The MSCI World Index is a free float-adjusted, market capitalization weighted index that measures large and mid-cap equity performance across countries with developed markets. The MSCI World index is broadly based which reflects overall market performance and Cambiar’s returns may not be correlated to the index. The index assumes no management, custody, transaction or other expenses. Cambiar’s performance and the performance of the benchmark include the reinvestment of all income. Benchmark returns are net of withholdings taxes. Cambiar typically follows each custodian’s treatment of tax withholding and therefore dividends may be presented as gross or net of dividend tax withholding depending on the custodian’s treatment. Withholding taxes may vary according to the investor’s domicile. Returns include the effect of foreign currency exchange rates obtained from WM/Reuters through IDC. Sources of foreign exchange rates may differ between the composite and the benchmark. The index is unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index. Past performance is no indication of future results.
