Disclosure

1Clipper Fund’s investment objective is long-term capital growth and capital preservation. There can be no assurance that the Fund will achieve its objective. The Fund invests primarily in equity securities issued by large companies with market capitalizations of at least $10 billion. Some important risks of an investment in the Fund are: market risk: the market value of shares of common stock can change rapidly and unpredictably and have the potential for loss; company risk: equity securities represent ownership positions in companies. Over time, the market value of a common stock should reflect the success or failure of the company issuing the stock; focused portfolio risk: funds that invest in a limited number of companies may have more risk because changes in the value of a single security may have a more significant effect, either negative or positive, on the value of a funds total portfolio; financial services risk: investing a significant portion of assets in the financial services sector may cause a fund to be more volatile as securities within the financial services sector are more prone to regulatory action in the financial services industry, more sensitive to interest rate fluctuations, and are the target of increased competition; under $10 billion market capitalization risk: small- and mid-size companies typically have more limited product lines, markets and financial resources than larger companies, and their securities may trade less frequently and in more limited volume than those of larger, more mature companies; fees and expenses risk: fees and expenses reduce the return which a shareholder may earn by investing in a fund; and foreign country risk: foreign companies may be subject to greater risk as foreign economies may not be as strong or diversified, foreign political systems may not be as stable, and foreign financial reporting standards may not be as rigorous as they are in the United States. As of September 30, 2017 the Fund had approximately 14.4% of assets invested in foreign companies. See the prospectus for a complete listing of the principal risks.

Allocations shown are at the Industry Group level except for the following industry groups which have been combined as indicated: Technology: Software & Services, Technology Hardware & Equipment, Semiconductors & Semiconductor Equipment; Pharmaceutical & Health Care: Pharmaceuticals, Biotechnology & Life Sciences, Health Care Equipment & Services.
