  • Think and Act Like Company Owners. We won't hesitate to become activist investors if our shareholders' interests need to be protected.
  • Strive To Reduce Risk. Our unique strategy has historically provided the fund with lower volatility than the overall market and has enabled us to deliver strong results over the long term.


  • Diversification. With the ability to invest up to 100% in foreign securities, we seek strong investment opportunities anywhere around the world.

Investing in the Fund

What Are the Risks?
  • All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.
  • Stocks historically have outperformed other asset classes over the long term, but tend to fluctuate more dramatically over the short term.
  • Value securities may not increase in price as anticipated, or may decline further in value. Investments in foreign securities involve certain risks including currency fluctuations, and economic and political uncertainties.
  • Smaller-company stocks have exhibited greater price volatility than larger-company stocks, particularly over the short term.
  • Investments in companies engaged in mergers, reorganizations or liquidations also involve special risks as pending deals may not be completed on time or on favorable terms.
  • Investments in lower-rated bonds entail higher credit risk.
  • These and other risks are described more fully in the fund’s prospectus.
