There is an abundance of empirical evidence that suggests that portfolios consisting of high dividend yielding securities may produce attractive total returns over long measurement periods.

TWEEDY, BROWNE

WORLDWIDE HIGH DIVIDEND YIELD VALUE FUND (TBHDX)

Investment Strategy

The Tweedy, Browne Worldwide High Dividend Yield Value Fund invests primarily in US and foreign equity securities that the Adviser believes to have above-average dividend yields and reasonable valuations. We believe dividends are an important addition to an investment portfolio for numerous reasons. Empirical studies suggest that portfolios consisting of securities with high dividend yields may produce attractive total returns over long measurement periods.

Commitment of the Adviser

As of March 31, 2024, Tweedy, Browne’s current Managing Directors, one of our retired principals, current employees, and their immediate family members had more than $293.3 million invested in our Funds, including approximately $7.3 million in the Worldwide High Dividend Yield Value Fund. Investment Committee members have spent between 8 and 50 years working at Tweedy, Browne. No member of our Management Committee has ever left the firm except for the reason of retirement.

Over the long term, the return from dividends has been a significant contributor to the total returns produced by equity securities.
