Video: Accessing America – a sector update with Dodge & Cox

San Francisco based Dodge & Cox is a company with focus – it offers just six funds (four for worldwide investors). It doesn’t do marketing, press or advertising, which they believe ensures their attention is always on hiring top investment professionals. And most employees have spent their entire careers at Dodge & Cox, with ownership of the company limited to active employees of the firm.

Steven Voorhis sits on the Investment Policy Committee at the company and we were very pleased to have him fly in from San Francisco and visit our Mayfair headquarters recently. Our sector specialist and head of research Simon Moore quizzed Voorhis on the US market as a whole, as well as the investment philosophy behind Dodge & Cox and the US Stock fund.

You can invest in this fund here as well as search, research and access over 2,500 funds plus investment trusts, ETFs and all UK listed shares.

The value of all investments can go down as well as up and you can get back less than you originally invested.
