ABOUT OAKMARK EQUITY & INCOME FUND:
Oakmark's investment philosophy is centered in the belief that superior, long-term results are achieved by investing in companies that can be purchased at a significant discount to their true economic value, where business values grow with time and where management teams seek to maximize long-term business value.
Oakmark Equity & Income Fund invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of U.S. equity and fixed-income securities. The Fund is intended to present a balanced investment program between growth and income by investing approximately 50-75% of its total assets in common stock, including securities convertible into common stock, and up to 50% of its assets in U.S. government securities and highly-rated, investment grade debt. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its assets in unrated or lower-rated debt securities, sometimes called junk bonds. The Fund may also invest up to 35% of its total assets in securities of non-U.S. companies.
