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:
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.
