Summary

  • Invests in companies with larger market capitalizations. Subject to price, any publicly traded company with above average economics that is not small (as defined by the Russell 2000 Index) would be a potential investment in this portfolio. A core position is 5% so that theoretically we would hold 20 names diversified across various industries. It is very rare that enough companies are sufficiently discounted to warrant this level of concentration, so concentration will vary with the price to value ratio. We will invest in positions as small as 1% when price to value ratios are higher. We will not invest in any business that is trading above our estimate of fair value.

Vulcan claims compliance with the Global Investment Performance Standards (GIPS). This presentation is supplemental information to the fully compliant composite performance disclosure available here.

The S&P 500 Index is an unmanaged index of 500 common stocks chosen for market size, liquidity, and industry group representation. It is a market-value weighted index. The Russell 1000® Value Index measures the performance of the large-cap value segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 1000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower expected growth values. Index figures do not reflect deductions for any fees, expenses, or taxes. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.

Holdings are subject to change. The top holdings, as well as other data, are as of the period indicated and should not be considered a recommendation to purchase, hold, or sell any particular security. There is no assurance that any of the securities noted will remain in a portfolio at the time you receive this fact sheet. Actual holding and percentage allocation in individual client portfolios may vary and are subject to change. It should not be assumed that any of the holdings discussed were or will prove to be profitable or that the investment recommendations or decisions we make in the future will be profitable. A list of all securities held in this portfolio in the prior year is available upon request.

The performance presented is for our Large Cap Composite. The composite portfolio performance figures reflect the deduction of brokerage or other commissions and the reinvestment of dividends and capital gains. Past performance is no guarantee of future results, and we may not achieve our return goal. We have presented returns gross and net of fees. Gross of fees returns are calculated gross of management and custodial fees and net of transaction costs. Net of fees returns are calculated net of management fees and transaction costs and gross of custodian fees, taken at the highest applicable fee. The performance figures do not reflect the deduction of any taxes an investor might pay on distributions or redemptions. Our standard fees are presented in Part 2 of our ADV. There may be market or economic conditions which affect our performance or that of our relevant benchmarks. Market conditions can vary widely over time and can result in a loss in portfolio value. Vulcan buys concentrated positions for our portfolios, averaging 5% in our model portfolios, which may make our performance more volatile than that of our benchmark indices, and our performance may diverge from an index, positively or negatively, as a result. Our focus is on long term capital appreciation, so our clients should consider at least a five year time horizon for an investment with Vulcan.
