Our team

Investment philosophy

We believe stock prices are influenced by human emotion and crowd psychology. We seek to capitalize on discrepancies between estimated intrinsic value and price, buying at times of excessive pessimism and selling at times of undue optimism. We develop relatively concentrated portfolios that reflect our deep conviction.

Carefully consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risk factors, charges, and expenses before investing. This and other information can be found in the Fund’s prospectus and its summary prospectus, which may be obtained by visiting our fund literature page or calling 800 523-1918. Investors should read the prospectus and the summary prospectus carefully before investing.

Investing involves risk, including the possible loss of principal.

IMPORTANT RISK CONSIDERATIONS

Because the Fund expects to hold a concentrated portfolio of a limited number of securities, the Fund's risk is increased because each investment has a greater effect on the Fund's overall performance.

Portfolio turnover is a measure of how frequently the managers buy and sell assets with a fund over a particular period.

Diversification may not protect against market risk.

International investments entail risks not ordinarily associated with U.S. investments including fluctuation in currency values, differences in accounting principles, or economic or political instability in other nations.
