Select Fund

We are long-term, intrinsic value investors who treat each share of stock as a true ownership interest. We look to buy what we believe are good businesses we can understand at a discount to our estimate of intrinsic value.

Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investment returns and principal values will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. The Fund’s current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance assumes reinvestment of all distributions. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized. Class Y shares include performance based on Investor shares for the Select Fund which was achieved prior to the creation of Class Y shares.
