INVESTMENT PHILOSOPHY


Through our fundamental, value-oriented investment process, we aim to buy securities of predominantly well-financed companies that trade at substantial discounts to our conservative estimates of intrinsic value. The portfolio is unconstrained by considerations relating to geography, industry, and index, resulting in a portfolio that is built from the bottom up and based on the best absolute value opportunities currently available. We believe that this investing discipline provides investors with a unique portfolio, long term price appreciation potential, and mitigated downside risks.

Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Equity securities are subject to market, economic and business risks that may cause their prices to fluctuate. Investments made in small and mid-capitalization companies may be more volatile and less liquid due to limited resources or product lines and more sensitive to economic factors. Fund investments may be concentrated in a particular country geographic region, sector, industry, or group of industries, and the value of Fund shares may rise and fall more than more diversified funds. Foreign investing involves social and political instability, market illiquidity, exchange-rate fluctuation, high volatility and limited regulation risks. Emerging markets involve different and greater risks, as they are smaller, less liquid and more volatile than more developed countries. Frontier market countries generally have smaller economies and less developed capital markets than even traditional emerging markets, and, as a result, the risks of investing in emerging market countries are magnified in frontier market countries. Currency risk is the risk that the values of foreign investments may be affected by changes in the currency rates or exchange control regulations. Significant investments in cash or cash equivalents may run the risk that the value of the cash account, including interest, will not keep pace with inflation. Please see the prospectus for details of these and other risks.
