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.

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.
