Oakmark has taken a number of important steps to ensure that your financial information is safe and secure:
You will never be asked for any personal information via email. If you receive an email that appears to be from Oakmark that requests personal information, do not respond. Please contact an Investor Services Representative at your earliest convenience.
There are instances where we may attempt to contact you via telephone. For instance, you may receive a phone call from us regarding a recent transaction or service request we received from you. We will attempt to call you if we can accept instructions or resolve an issue over the phone. At first, you will hear an automated message that will say the call is on behalf of the Oakmark Funds and ask you to press 1 to speak with an Investor Services Representative. Once you press 1, you will be connected to a live representative.
