The Oakmark International Fund’s portfolio tend to be invested in a relatively small number of stocks. As a result, the appreciation or depreciation of any one security held by the Fund’s will have a greater impact on the Funds’ net asset value than it would if the Fund’s invested in a larger number of securities. Although that strategy has the potential to generate attractive returns over time, it also increases the Fund’s volatility.
Investing in foreign securities presents risks that in some ways may be greater than U.S. investments. Those risks include: currency fluctuation; different regulation, accounting standards, trading practices and levels of available information; generally higher transaction costs; and political risks.
