  • To estimate intrinsic value, the business must be understandable and we must be able to reasonably forecast its cash flows.  We seek businesses with sustainable competitive advantages, conservative balance sheets and management with an ownership mentality.
  • Investments are sold when the stock price reaches our estimate of intrinsic value, our estimate of intrinsic value is revised such that there is no longer a discount to intrinsic value, a holding reaches our stated maximum position size, or to raise proceeds for a more attractive opportunity.

An investor should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectus or summary prospectus contain this and other important information about the Fund(s) and are available at or by calling 888.226.5595. Please read the prospectus or summary prospectus carefully before investing. The Diamond Hill Funds are distributed by Foreside Financial Services, LLC (Member FINRA). Diamond Hill Capital Management, Inc., a registered investment adviser, serves as investment adviser to the Diamond Hill Funds and is paid a fee for its services. Diamond Hill Funds are not FDIC insured, may lose value, and have no bank guarantee.

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.

Fund holdings, sector allocations and portfolio statistics subject to change without notice.

1 Definitions: 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 rate 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.

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