Fund Description

The Dodge & Cox International Stock Fund (DODFX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to provide investors with foreign equity exposure. The fund uses a round-table discussion among its stable of managers to choose stocks issued by non-U.S. companies from at least three different nations, including emerging markets. Under its mandate, DODFX is allowed to hold common stocks, preferred stocks, convertible bonds as well as warrants/options on the “right to buy” certain international stocks. The fund employs various value metrics when building its portfolio.

Given its broad exposure to non-U.S. stocks, the fund is suitable as a core international equity offering.
