Please note: This fund is closed to new investors.

The Harbor Global Value Fund, subadvised by Causeway Capital Management LLC, invests primarily in equity securities, principally common stocks of companies located throughout the world, including the United States and developed and emerging market countries.  The Fund expects to invest the majority of its assets in companies that pay dividends or repurchase their shares.

When investing the Fund's assets, the Subadviser follows a value style.  This means that the Subadviser buys stocks that it believes have lower prices than their true worth.  For example, stocks may be "undervalued" because the issuing companies are part of industries that are currently out of favor with investors.  However, even in those industries, certain companies may have high rates of growth of earnings and be financially sound.

When purchasing or selling individual securities, the Subadviser considers each of the following value characteristics:

  • Low price-to-earnings ratio relative to the sector in which the company operates
  • Higher yield (measured in both dividends and share repurchases) relative to the market
  • Low price-to-book value ratio relative to the market
  • Low price-to-cash flow ratio relative to the market
  • Financial strength of the company

Generally, the Subadviser considers price-to-earnings and yield as the most important of these value characteristics.  Under normal market circumstances, the Fund will invest at least 40% of its total assets in companies located in a number of countries outside the U.S.

Performance data shown represents past performance, which is no guarantee of future results. Current performance may be higher or lower than the past performance data shown. Investment returns and the value of an investment will fluctuate, and an investor's shares, when sold, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

The Harbor Funds performance shown assumes the reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions and is net of management fees and expenses. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.

From time to time, certain fees and/or expenses have been voluntarily waived, which has resulted in higher returns. Without these waivers, the returns would have been lower. Voluntary waivers may be applied or discontinued at any time without notice.

The MSCI World (ND) Index is a free float-adjusted market capitalization weighted index that is designed to measure global developed market equity performance. This unmanaged index does not reflect fees and expenses and is not available for direct investment.

Expense ratio information is as of the Fund's current prospectus, as revised and supplemented from time to time.
