Fund Description

The Tweedy, Browne Global Value Fund (TBGVX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that seeks to grow an investor’s capital over the long term. TBGVX combs the world for stocks believed to be undervalued. Fund management uses a variety of metrics to determine this valuation. TBGVX mostly focuses on international stocks and only buys U.S. firms when they are the most attractive option. Further, the fund focuses on developed markets and will hedge its currency exposure when applicable.

With its widespread bet on the world and its ability to shift regions, TBGVX makes for a great subcore position. The fund is managed by Tweedy, Browne Company.
