The Orbis Global Equity Fund is underpinned by a contrarian investment philosophy that the group has tried and tested globally for over 40 years and which has been applied to the fund for 25 years.02.
Understanding global equities
Investing globally provides the Orbis Global Equity Fund with the freedom to vary from the benchmark index in order to access the best opportunities around the globe.03.
A contrarian investment approach means the Orbis Global Equity Fund is willing to be different from the stock market overall and as a result, the way the fund looks at risk is also different.04.
Selecting people who are in the very early stages of their investment careers allows Orbis to indoctrinate them in the group’s contrarian investment approach.05.

The ideal investor

Fees and returns
The fee structure for the Orbis Global Equity Fund changes based on whether the fund outperforms or underperforms the market in any given year.09.
