Performance Charts

Inception Date: 10.31.1997. The performance information depicted above represents the Cambiar International Equity Composite. Returns are presented gross (g) and net (n) of management fees. Gross and net returns have been 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. Net of fees performance reflects a blended fee schedule of all accounts within the International 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 presented in U.S. dollars.
Performance results for the International Equity Composite are evaluated against the MSCI EAFE Index. The MSCI EAFE Index (Europe, Australasia, Far East) is a free float-adjusted, market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure developed market equity performance, excluding the U.S. & Canada. The index assume no management, custody, transaction or other expenses. The MSCI EAFE index is broadly based which reflect the overall market performance and Cambiar’s returns may not be correlated to the index. Cambiar’s performance and the performance of the MSCI EAFE index include the reinvestment of all income.  Benchmark returns are net of withholding 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. Indices are unmanaged and one cannot invest directly in an index.  Past performance is no indication of future results.
