The Allan Gray-Orbis Global Optimal Fund of Funds aims to achieve its objective by only investing in the Orbis Optimal SA funds. The Orbis Optimal SA funds included in the Fund use exchange-traded derivative contracts on stock market indices to reduce net equity exposure. Orbis uses in-house research to identify companies worldwide whose share prices are underpriced relative to their long-term intrinsic value. This long-term perspective enables them to buy shares shunned by the stock market because of their unexciting/poor short-term prospects. However, which may present relative value in the long term. The investment philosophy aligns with Allan Gray's investment philosophy in South African equities. However, Orbis can choose from a broader range of shares listed internationally.
