†† The Global Stock Fund’s inception date was May 1, 2008. The Emerging Markets Stock Fund’s inception date was May 11, 2021. Dodge & Cox Global Bond Fund, L.L.C., a private fund managed and funded by Dodge & Cox (the “Private Fund”) was reorganized into the Fund and the Fund commenced operations on May 1, 2014. The Private Fund was organized as Delaware limited liability company and was treated as a disregarded entity under the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”). The Private Fund commenced operations on December 5, 2012, and had an investment objective, policies, and strategies that were, in all material respects, the same as those of the Fund, and was managed in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. However, the Private Fund was not registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”), and therefore was not subject to certain investment limitations, diversification requirements, liquidity requirements, and other restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act and the Code, which, if applicable, may have adversely affected its performance. The Fund’s performance for periods prior to the commencement of operations on May 1, 2014, is that of the Private Fund. The performance of the Private Fund has not been restated because the net total operating expense ratio of the Private Fund and the Fund are the same. Expense reimbursements have been in effect for the Fund since its inception. Without the expense reimbursements, returns for the Fund would have been lower.

All returns are stated in U.S. dollars, unless otherwise noted. The Funds’ total returns include the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions, but have not been adjusted for any income taxes payable by shareholders on these distributions or on Fund share redemptions. Index returns include dividend and/or interest income but, unlike Fund returns, do not reflect fees or expenses.

The S&P 500 Index is a market capitalization-weighted index of 500 large-capitalization stocks commonly used to represent the U.S. equity market. The Russell 1000 Value Index is a broad-based, unmanaged equity market index composed of those Russell 1000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The MSCI World Index is a broad-based, unmanaged equity market index aggregated from 24 developed market country indices, including the United States. Results reflect dividends net of withholding taxes. The MSCI EAFE (Europe, Australasia, Far East) Index is a broad-based, unmanaged equity market index aggregated from 22 developed market country indices, excluding the United States. Results reflect dividends net of withholding taxes. The MSCI Emerging Markets Index captures large and mid cap representation across 27 Emerging Markets (EM) countries. Results reflect dividends net of withholding taxes. The Combined Index reflects an unmanaged portfolio (rebalanced monthly) of 60% of the S&P 500, and 40% of the BBG U.S. Agg. The Fund may, however, invest up to 75% of its total assets in stocks. The Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Bond Index (BBG U.S. Agg) is a widely recognized, unmanaged index of U.S. dollar-denominated investment-grade fixed income securities. The Bloomberg Global Aggregate Bond Index is a widely recognized, unmanaged index of multi-currency, investment-grade fixed income securities.
