The investment return and the principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost.  Current performance may be higher or lower than the performance data quoted. Performance data current to the most recent month end may be obtained at  www.weitzinvestments.com/funds_and_performance/fund_performance.fs.  Effective June 30, 2008, Value Fund adopted its current principal investment strategy of investing the majority of its assets in larger-sized companies.  Current and future portfolio holdings are subject to risk. Investors should consider carefully the investment objectives, risks, and charges and expenses of the Fund before investing.  Institutional Class shares became available for sale on July 31, 2014. For performance prior to that date, this report includes the actual performance of the Fund’s Investor Class (and use the actual expenses of the Fund’s Investor Class), without adjustment. For any such period of time, the performance of the Fund’s Institutional Class would have been similar to the performance of the Fund’s Investor Class, because the shares of both classes are invested in the same portfolio of securities, but the classes bear different expenses.
