Tweedy Browne Global Value Fund II – Currency Unhedged will reopen to new investors on February 1, 2016.
To our investors:
After serious discussion and consideration, Tweedy, Browne Company LLC, the investment adviser to the Tweedy Browne Global Value Fund II – Currency Unhedged (TBCUX), has determined to reopen the Fund to new investors on February 1, 2016. The Fund was closed to new investors on August 11, 2014, as it had become difficult to invest new subscriptions. More recently, flows have become more manageable, and we now believe that the addition of new assets to the Fund can be managed effectively, without the risk of diluting returns to existing shareholders. This is especially true given the enhanced volatility of global equity markets of late, which has begun to stimulate new idea flow.
