Investment Philosophy

The Global Fund’s philosophy reflects the teachings of Benjamin Graham and Warren Buffett: We believe there is a persistent market failure to recognize a company’s intrinsic value. The Fund attempts to exploit this failure on behalf of our investors through a bottom-up, fundamental investment approach.

  • Absolute Return Orientation

    Focus on Absolute Returns

    We attempt to avoid the permanent impairment of capital and generate long-term positive absolute returns across market cycles.
  • 08 flexible

    Flexible, Benchmark-Agnostic Approach

    The Strategy has the ability to invest across asset classes, regions, sectors/industries, market-capitalization ranges, and without regard to a benchmark.
  • Bottom Up Investing

    Seeks To Provide Downside Mitigation

    Our attempts to avoid the permanent loss of capital result in a portfolio that has exposure to equities purchased with what we believe to be a “margin of safety” in price.

Our Process

The fundamental research process has remained constant since the inception of the Fund. The Fund looks for opportunities in companies that have temporarily disappointed investors; industries in turmoil or out of favor; and countries in economic downturns or overlooked by the market.

The investment process involves the following steps:

  • 01

    Analyze, Understand Business Models

    Thoroughly understand a company and the market in which it operates. Among other critical factors, the team’s document-driven analysis examines:

    • A company’s market share.
    • The nature of its products and its business contingencies
  • 02

    Recast Financial Statements

    Financial statements are recast because:

    • Conservative accounting practices can mask the true earnings power of a company
    • In our view, accounting practices are sometimes too liberal

    Our goal is to uncover a company’s true economic earnings using only demonstrated results.

  • 03

    Calculate Intrinsic Value

    The team places great emphasis on: 

    • Balance sheet valuation (such as Enterprise Value to Asset Replacement Value)
    • Cash flow valuation (such as EV/EBIT)

    Investments are made based on significant discounts to what is believed to be a company’s intrinsic value.

  • 04

    Typically Invest for the Long Term

    The team typically seeks a discount to what they believe is a company’s intrinsic value:

    • They seek further downside mitigation by determining a “margin of safety” in each holding
    • This “margin of safety” is viewed as a form of risk mitigation against uncertainty in a fundamentally unknowable future.

The Global Fund may also invest in non-equity securities in an attempt to help preserve purchasing power. These include:

  • Gold bullion
  • Corporate bonds (senior or subordinated bonds, convertible bonds)
  • Cash and cash equivalents (commercial paper)

Current performance may be lower or higher than figures shown. The investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed may be worth more or less than their original cost. Past performance data through the most recent month end is available on the Prices & Performance page.

Performance for periods prior to January 1, 2000 occurred while a prior portfolio manager of The Fund was affiliated with another firm. Inception date shown is when this prior portfolio manager assumed portfolio management responsibilities.

  3. The average annual returns shown above are historical and reflect changes in share price, reinvested dividends and are net of expenses. Investment results and the principal value of an investment will vary.

  6. The average annual returns for Class C Shares reflect a CDSC (contingent deferred sales charge) of 1.00% in the year-to-date and first year only.

  7. Performance information for Class I Shares is without the effect of sales charges and assumes all distributions have been reinvested and if a sales charge was included values would be lower. Had fees not been waived and/or expenses reimbursed, the performance would have been lower. Class A and C Shares have maximum sales charges of 5.00% and 1.00% respectively, and 12b-1 fees, which reduce performance.

  8. Class I Shares require $1MM minimum investment and are offered without sales charge. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount for Class I Shares.

  2. “Intrinsic value” is based on our judgment of what a prudent and rational business buyer would pay in cash for all of the company in normal markets.

  3. First Eagle defines "margin of safety" as the difference between a company's market price and our estimate of its intrinsic value. An investment made with a margin of safety is no guarantee against loss.

  5. The MSCI World Index is a widely followed, unmanaged group of stocks from 23 developed markets and is not available for purchase. The index provides total returns in U.S. dollars with net dividends reinvested.

  6. Standard deviation is a statistical measure of the distance a quantity is likely to be from its average value.  It is applied to the annual rate of return to measure volatility.

  7. Beta is a measure of the fund's volatility (risk) relative to the overall market. The higher the fund's Beta, the more the fund price is expected to change in response to a given change in the value of the market.

  5. The average annual returns for Class A Shares “with sales charge” performance gives effect to the deduction of the maximum sales charge of 3.75% for periods prior to March 1, 2000 and of 5.00% thereafter.

  6. Performance information for Class I Shares is without the effect of sales charges and assumes all distributions have been reinvested and if a sales charge was included values would be lower. Had fees not been waived and/or expenses reimbursed, the performance would have been lower. Class A and C Shares have maximum sales charges of 5.00% and 1.00% respectively, and 12b-1 fees, which reduce performance.

  7. Class I Shares require $1MM minimum investment and are offered without sales charge. There is no minimum subsequent investment amount for Class I Shares.

  8. Class R Shares are offered without sales charge.

  9. The annual expense ratio is based on expenses incurred by The Fund, as stated in the most recent prospectus.

Investment Process

The fundamental research process has remained constant since the inception of the Fund. The Fund looks for opportunities in companies that have temporarily disappointed investors; industries in turmoil or out of favor; and countries in economic downturns or overlooked by the market.

The investment process involves the following steps:

  • 01

    Analyze, Understand Business Models

    Thoroughly understand a company and the market in which it operates. Among other critical factors, the team’s document-driven analysis examines:

    • A company’s market share. 
    • The nature of its products and its business contingencies
  • 02

    Recast Financial Statements

    Financial statements are recast because:

    • Conservative accounting practices can mask the true earnings power of a company
    • In our view, accounting practices are sometimes too liberal

    Our goal is to uncover a company's true economic earnings using only demonstrated results.

  • 03

    Calculate Intrinsic Value

    The team places great emphasis on: 

    • Balance sheet valuation (such as Enterprise Value to Asset Replacement Value)
    • Cash flow valuation (such as EV/EBIT)

    Investments are made based on significant discounts to what is believed to be a company’s intrinsic value.

  • 04

    Typically Invest for the Long Term

    The team typically seeks a discount to what they believe is a company’s intrinsic value:

    • They seek further downside mitigation by determining a “margin of safety” in each holding
    • This “margin of safety” is viewed as a form of risk mitigation against uncertainty in a fundamentally unknowable future

    The Global Fund may also invest in non-equity securities in an attempt to help preserve purchasing power. These include:

    • Gold bullion
    • Corporate bonds (senior or subordinated bonds, convertible bonds)
    • Cash and cash equivalents (commercial paper)
