All Cap Value

Information as of 9/30/2018

Strategy Highlights

  • The All Cap Value Product is benchmarked to the Russell 3000® Value Index.
  • As the name implies, the All Cap Value strategy reaches from the Small Cap universe all the way up to the Large Cap universe, expanding its market cap range from approximately $100 million to well over $100 billion.
    • Actual exposures in small cap, mid cap and large cap will vary and will be dependent on where we believe the best ideas are found.
    • The weighted average market capitalization is generally reflective of the market cap of the Russell 3000® Value Index with no significant under- or over-weights.
    • The portfolio is diversified across industries and sectors with weights ranging between 0% to 50%.
  • The Portfolio Manager seeks companies generating returns on invested capital in excess of their respective costs of capital.
  • The Portfolio Manager prefers companies that are reinvesting in their businesses. As a result, portfolios regularly have a lower dividend yield than that of the benchmark.
  • Portfolios generally demonstrate valuations below and growth characteristics at or above those of the benchmark.
  • Portfolios are actively managed using a bottom-up investment approach, and the Portfolio Manager does not attempt to time the markets.
  • Portfolios are typically fully invested, generally holding less than 10% cash.
  • Our approach seeks to minimize risk through diversification. Portfolios generally hold between 40 and 60 stocks, with no one stock typically exceeding 5% of a total portfolio.


The objective of the All Cap Value strategy is to consistently outperform the Russell 3000® Value Index over a complete market cycle. The Portfolio Manager first identifies all cap companies generating returns on invested capital in excess of their cost of capital. Within that universe, the manager seeks to identify companies where the forecasts from our fundamental analysts project cash flows greater than those implied by the equity market.

The All Cap Value Composite contains fully discretionary all cap value accounts that are invested primarily in value securities of companies without a market capitalization constraint. The Manager generally looks for undervalued companies generating cash flow returns on invested capital greater than industry peers. All Cap Value portfolios generally demonstrate valuations below and growth characteristics at or above those of the benchmark. The weighted average market capitalization of the Account will generally be within 50% of the average market capitalization of the Russell 3000® Value Index. The U.S. Dollar is the currency used to express performance.

Performance returns presented Gross of Fees do not reflect the deduction of investment advisory fees. A client’s return will be reduced by the advisory fees as described in the Form ADV Part 2A and other expenses incurred by the account. For example, an annual advisory fee of 1% compounded quarterly over 10 years will reduce a gross 14.44% annual return to a net 13.24% annual return. Form ADV Part 2A is available upon request. The GIPS® are a set of standardized, industry-wide ethical principles that provide investment firms with guidance on calculating and reporting their investment results to prospective clients to ensure fair representation and full disclosure of an investment firm’s performance history. Past performance is not indicative of future results.

The performance figures reported herein are unaudited, may be based upon information obtained via electronic data sources (“feeds”) and may be subject to change. Data feeds from many of KCM clients’ selected custodians are obtained through a third party, and are used to compare custodial data to KCM’s client account records as frequently as daily. Monthly, KCM reviews clients’ account holdings along with cash and share quantities against the custodial statements. In some instances, variances may exist between final audited custodial information and the information KCM obtains via such data feeds. All variances are typically reconciled to the applicable account no later than each month-end.

Composite specific data provided within this presentation has been calculated from accounts that are discretionary as defined in this paragraph. The assets shown are derived only from discretionary accounts. Non-discretionary accounts, as defined by KCM, are accounts that are not included in the composite due to one or any combination of the following criteria: there were significant cash inflows or outflows within the account; the account’s asset level did not meet the minimum requirement to remain in the composite; the account assets are managed by others using our non-discretionary model. The temporary removal of such an account occurs at the beginning of the month and the account re-enters the composite the month after the criteria has been met.

The Russell 3000® Value Index is used as the benchmark. The Index is unmanaged and represents total returns including reinvestment of dividends. The benchmark is used for comparative purposes only and generally reflects the comparable risk or investment style of the Firm’s strategy. The investment portfolios underlying the Index are different from the investments in the portfolios managed by the Firm. Certain accounts may also use other benchmarks not listed in the Annual Disclosure Presentation. The Independent Accountant’s Report does not cover the benchmark returns included in the Annual Disclosure Presentation.

The Russell 3000® Value Index measures the performance of the broad value segment of the U.S. equity universe. It includes those Russell 3000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The Russell 3000® Value Index is constructed to provide a comprehensive, un-bias, and stable barometer of the broad value market. The index is completely reconstituted annually to ensure new and growing equities are included and that the represented companies continue to reflect value characteristics.
