1) Compounding Wealth - To be one of the very best over the long term does not mean you have to be number one every year.
As the chart below illustrates, from 4/1/69–3/31/22 Davis Large Cap Value delivered an average annualized return of 12.4%—remarkably outperforming the S&P 500® Index by an average of 1.8% per year.3
A hypothetical $100,000 investment in Davis Large Cap Value in 1969 has compounded to $47,880,562, while the S&P 500® Index compounded into only $20,819,845 over that same time period. (Gross of fees. See below for net of fee returns.)
