Value Investors Since 1975

Southeastern Asset Management has been a leader in value equity investing for over four decades. We created the Longleaf Partners Funds in 1987, as a way for our employees to invest alongside our clients, and today Southeastern employees and related entities are the largest collective investor across the Longleaf Partners Funds. This partnership tradition is the foundation for how we manage our business, how we communicate with our clients and how we invest. Our global research team applies a single bottom-up investment approach, focused on protecting against permanent capital loss, while seeking to deliver strong absolute returns for our partners and ourselves.
