Davis Real Estate Portfolio
Portfolio of Davis Variable Account Fund, Inc.

For variable annuity investors who are looking for growth and income from real estate securities

Portfolio Overview

Investment Strategy

The Davis Real Estate Portfolio seeks to achieve total return through a combination of growth and income. It invests primarily in securities of companies related to the real estate industry.

The Portfolio applies the Davis Investment Discipline to real estate, seeking companies with first-class management teams who view real estate as a means of producing steadily increasing income and strong returns on capital.

Why Invest in the Davis Real Estate Portfolio

Increased Diversification

The Portfolio offers investors a good way to increase the diversification of their investments.*  Real estate securities have historically shown a lower sensitivity to price movements (beta) than the broad stock market averages. At the same time, real estate returns over the long term have been comparable to those of equities, but not correlated with them (R-squared).

Sixty Years of Experience

Davis Advisors has successfully managed money through many environments – including periods of inflation, recession, rising and falling energy prices, rising and falling interest rates, and bull and bear markets.

Consistency of the Davis Investment Discipline

For three generations, the Davis family has built wealth by investing in durable, well-managed businesses selling at attractive prices and holding them for the long term.

Aligned with Our Clients

With more than $2 billion invested side by side with our clients, we experience the same risks and reap the same rewards.1

Long-Term Investment Results

Davis Advisors has a history of delivering strong, consistent investment results through full market cycles.

Equity markets are volatile and an investor may lose money. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results.

* Diversification does not ensure against loss.
