Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. 

Consider these risks before investing: All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal. The Weitz equity funds may invest in undervalued securities, which by definition are out of favor with investors, and there is no way to predict when, if ever, such securities may return to favor. Because the Fund(s) may have a more concentrated portfolio than certain other mutual funds, the performance of each holding in the Fund(s) has a greater impact upon the overall portfolio, which increases risk. See the Fund's prospectus for a further discussion of risks related to the Fund(s).
