Dodge & Cox: Built to Last

Andrew Daniels, CFA, CMA

Dodge & Cox sets a high bar for the asset-management industry. Its many investor-friendly attributes continue to earn the firm a Positive Parent Pillar rating.

The San Francisco-based firm was founded by Van Duyn Dodge and E. Morris Cox in 1930, near the beginning of the Great Depression, which forced patience on the young startup, and this has been ingrained in its investment and commercial culture for more than 85 years. Today, Dodge & Cox veterans Dana Emery and Charles Pohl continue to lead the firm and funds with a long-term horizon as CEO and chairman, respectively, and as lead members of the investment team.
