Research Fund Objective

The Research Fund is a unique no-load fund that capitalizes on the individual talents of the Weitz Investment research analysts. Each analyst manages a portion of the fund and has full decision-making power to select stocks for that portion. The analysts follow the Weitz Way of bottom-up, value-based stock picking. Each portion of the fund may hold stock from 8-16 companies of all sizes at any given time.

*Actual annual expense ratio for the year ended March 31, 2017 was 1.56% (gross) and 0.90% (net). The investment adviser has agreed in writing to limit the total annual fund operating expenses (excluding taxes, interest, brokerage costs, acquired fund fees and expenses and extraordinary expenses) to 0.90% of the Fund’s average daily net assets through July 31, 2017.
