Longleaf Partners Global Fund

Investment Objective

Longleaf Partners Global Fund seeks long-term capital growth. The Fund seeks to achieve this objective by investing primarily in US and non-US companies we believe to be significantly undervalued. Current income is not an objective.

Fund Information

  • The Fund normally invests at least 40% of its total assets in the equity securities of non-U.S. issuers throughout the world, which could include emerging market issuers, and may achieve its exposure to non-U.S. securities through investing in American depositary receipts (ADRs).
  • The Fund's unconstrained portfolio invests in companies of all market capitalizations and geographies.
  • The Fund is non-diversified under the federal securities laws and generally invests in 15 to 25 companies.
  • Benchmark index is MSCI World Index, though portfolio construction is 100% bottom-up.
  • Southeastern employees, related parties, and Longleaf trustees are the largest shareholder group with a collective investment of over $100 million.
