Fund Description

The Sequoia Fund (SEQUX) is a managed mutual fund that is issued by Sequoia and advised by Ruane, Cunniff & Goldfarb Inc. The fund was launched on July, 15 1970 and was managed by Robert D. Goldfarb since 1998 and David M. Poppe since 2006. The fund has approximately $7.7 billion in assets under management (AUM).

The fund’s primary objective is to provide investors with long term growth and capital. Management of the fund seeks to invest in equity securities that they consider to be undervalued compared to the value of the total enterprise. In addition, the fund’s management seeks investments with reasonable growth potential. The fund’s portfolio includes stocks that are issued in the United States as well as international stocks. The holdings can be any size, but the fund tends to choose companies that are medium sized or larger. The majority of the holdings are in the healthcare, financial services and industrial goods sectors. The fund is not required to be fully invested. Typically, this fund holds about 10-25 holdings at one time. These companies tend to consist of market leading companies that are considered undervalued at the time of purchase.

Management of the fund will tend to sell holdings if they show deteriorating fundamentals, if they missed analysts’ expectations or if their valuation appears to be excessive. This fund is subject to general stock market risks as well as market risk, value investing risk, foreign stock risk, currency risks, small-cap risk and management risks. Investors should also be aware that this fund is non-diversified, which lifts the overall risk of the fund.

The fund requires an initial investment of at least $5,000 for regular accounts and $2,500 for IRA accounts. Each additional investment requires a minimum $500 deposit.
