Risk Disclosure: Overall equity market risks may affect the value of all funds. The Small Cap Fund, Small-Mid Cap Fund, Mid Cap Fund, All Cap Select Fund, Global Fund and International Fund invest in small and medium capitalization stocks; there are special risks associated with small and medium capitalization issues such as market illiquidity and greater market volatility than large capitalization issues. The Large Cap Concentrated Fund and All Cap Select Fund expect to hold a concentrated portfolio of a limited number of securities; because of this a decline in the value of these investments would cause the Fund’s overall value to decline to a greater degree than a less concentrated portfolio. The Long-Short Fund uses short selling which incurs significant additional risk. Theoretically, stocks sold short have unlimited risk. The Global Fund and International Fund invest in non-U.S. securities. Investing in non-U.S. securities may entail risk due to foreign economic and political developments; this risk may be higher when investing in emerging markets. Changes in currency exchange rates and differences in accounting and taxation policies outside the U.S. can raise or lower returns.

1Definitions: Active Share measures the difference between portfolio holdings and the benchmark. The higher the active share, the greater the difference. Standard Deviation measures the volatility of the Fund’s returns. Beta measures the Fund’s sensitivity to market movements. Sharpe Ratio uses the Fund’s standard deviation and average excess return over the risk-free ratio to determine reward per unit of risk. Alpha measures excess return relative to the market that is attributable to active portfolio management. R-squared represents the percentage of the portfolio’s movements that can be explained by general market movements. Upside / Downside Capture Ratio measures a manager’s ability to generate excess return above the benchmark return in up markets and retain more of the excess return in down markets. Statistics for periods less than one year are not annualized. Risk statistics are relative to the Morningstar Global Markets Index.

2Cash & Other may include cash, treasuries, money market funds, and short duration fixed income funds.

The quoted performance for the Fund reflects the past performance of Diamond Hill Global Fund L.P. (the “Global Partnership”), a private fund managed with full investment authority by the fund’s Adviser. The Fund is managed in all material respects in a manner equivalent to the management of the predecessor unregistered fund. The performance of the Global Partnership has been restated to reflect the net expenses and maximum applicable sales charge of the fund for its initial years of investment operations. The Global Partnership was not registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 and therefore was not subject to certain investment restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act. If the Global Partnership had been registered under the 1940 Act, its performance may have been adversely affected. Performance is measured from December 31, 2013, the inception of the Global Partnership and is not the performance of the fund. The assets of the Global Partnership were converted, based on their value on December 29, 2017, into assets of the fund. The Global Partnership’s past performance is not necessarily an indication of how the fund will perform in the future either before or after taxes.

The Morningstar Global Markets Index is a net total return index designed to provide exposure to the top 97% of equity market capitalization in both developed and emerging markets.

Index data source: Morningstar, Inc. See for a full copy of the disclaimer. These indices do not incur fees and expenses (which would lower the return) and are not available for direct investment.

The Morningstar Broad Fee Level data point compares the fund's prospectus adjusted operating net expense ratio to the prospectus adjusted operating net expense ratio of all the other funds within its Morningstar Category.
