- The Fund is non-diversified under federal securities laws and generally invests in 15 to 25 companies.

- Southeastern employees, related parties, and Longleaf trustees are the largest shareholder group with a collective investment of over $200 million.
- The Fund's assets are held primarily by institutional clients.
- Our relationships are long-term. The average direct account tenure is between 5-10 years.
