The SmallCap Value composite includes all taxable and tax-exempt, fee-paying fully discretionary accounts whose main objective is to invest primarily in equity securities with market capitalizations between $100 million and $2 billion at purchase and having comparable objectives. The minimum portfolio size for inclusion in the SmallCap Value Composite is $5 million beginning January 1, 2006. Portfolio returns reflect the reinvestment of dividend and interest income. The 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 Value Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive and unbiased barometer of the small-cap value market. Based on ongoing empirical research of investment manager behavior, the methodology used to determine value probability approximates the aggregate small-cap value manager’s opportunity set. The comparative index returns include reinvestment of income but do not include transaction costs or management fees.
