Longleaf Partners Global UCITS Fund seeks to generate superior long-term investment returns and minimize the risk of permanent capital loss by investing primarily in a concentrated number of global companies that meet our Business, People, Price investment criteria.

We invest with a three-to-five-year investment horizon and take advantage of short-term volatility to own high quality businesses, run by capable management teams, whose stock prices we believe are trading temporarily at a discount. Our extensive, global network allows us to engage with our management partners to help drive long-term value creation.

Fund Information

  • The Fund’s objective is long-term capital growth. Current income is not an objective.
  • The Fund generally invests in companies with market capitalizations of over US$3 billion.
  • The Fund is actively managed. It uses the MSCI World Index (USD) (Ticker: M1WO) as a ‘comparator benchmark’ to compare the performance of the Fund against, but which is not used to constrain portfolio composition or as a target for the performance of the Fund. Portfolio construction is 100% bottom-up and benchmark-agnostic.
  • If we cannot find qualifying investment opportunities, we will hold cash.
  • The Fund generally holds 18-22 companies.
  • The Fund’s assets are held primarily by institutional clients.
  • If size begins to inhibit our ability to manage the Fund, we will close to new investors.

Risk/Reward Profile: As this Fund has such a broad selection of investment choices, there are many factors that could affect performance. These could include changes in the economic environment between and within the countries that the Fund has invested in, the performance of different industrial sectors, and individual securities. The performance of the Class I GBP Shares and the Class I EUR Shares may also be affected by the respective exchange rates with U.S. Dollars, the currency in which the Fund is denominated, as the Investment Manager will not purchase financial instruments to mitigate any such potential changes. Because the Fund generally invests in 20 to 25 companies, each holding could have a greater impact on the Fund’s performance than if a greater number of securities were held. The Fund does not limit the percentage of assets invested in any particular geographic region or country. Accordingly, there may be periods where the Fund has significant exposure to a particular region or country, so that negative events occurring in that area could have a greater adverse impact on performance than in a more geographically diversified fund. Investment in emerging markets may expose the Fund to more social, political, regulatory, and currency risks than securities in developed markets. A party with whom the Fund contracts with regard to the Fund’s assets may fail to meet its obligations or become bankrupt which may expose the Fund to a financial loss. Derivatives may fluctuate in value rapidly and certain derivatives may introduce leverage which may result in losses that are greater than the original amount invested. Losses to the Fund may occur as a result of human error, system and/or process failures, inadequate procedures or controls. The value of the shares may go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount invested. For a more detailed explanation of these and other risks please refer to the Prospectus under the “Risk Factors and Special Considerations” section.

This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the link below for the Prospectus and other offering documentation before making any final investment decision. A Prospectus is available for the Fund and The Key Investor Information Document (“KIIDs”) are available for each share class of the Fund.

The KIIDs can be obtained from this website and are available in one of the official languages of each of the EU Member States into which each share class has been notified for marketing under the Directive 2009/65/EC (THE “UCITS Directive”). Full information on associated risks can be found in the Prospectus and KIIDs. In addition, a summary of investor rights is available on this website. The summary is available in English. The Fund is currently notified for marketing into a number of EU Member States under the UCITS Directive. KBA Consulting Management Limited (“KBA”), the management company, can terminate such notifications for any share class of the Fund at any time using the process contained in Article 93a of the UCITS Directive.
