“How Active Strategies Can Potentially Deliver Over a Full Market Cycle”
Much has been made about the death of active strategies. The reality is: active investing has evolved. Many financial advisors today are using active strategies, seeking to add incremental return while reducing downside risk.
The Buffalo International Fund (BUFIX) recently passed the 10-year mark and joins 8 other Buffalo Funds with a performance track record of a decade or longer!
Since the Fund’s inception in September 2007, the management team has navigated many types of market conditions, in the pursuit of capital appreciation, by investing in companies located beyond U.S. borders.

Current performance may be lower or higher than the performance quoted, quarter-end performance can be obtained here, and month-end performance can be obtained here.
BUFTX earns Bronze Morningstar Analyst RatingTM due to the management team’s ability to adapt to the changing focus of the Fund over the past 14 years.

With index funds tied to downward market action, experienced portfolio mangers at active funds attempt to minimize the damage and set the stage to maximize returns on the rebound.
Diversification does not assure a profit, nor does it protect against a loss in a declining market.
Active investing has higher management fees because of the manager’s increased level of involvement while passive investing has lower management and operating fees. Investing in both actively and passively managed mutual funds involves risk and principal loss is possible. Both actively and passively managed mutual funds generally have daily liquidity. There are no guarantees regarding the performance of actively and passively managed mutual funds. Actively managed mutual funds may have higher portfolio turnover than passively managed funds. Excessive turnover can limit returns and can incur capital gains.
We believe active portfolio management leads to superior wealth creation and better risk-adjusted results over time. Our investment approach combines top-down trend analysis with bottom-up fundamental company research and then applies a strict valuation discipline to security selection.
The core of our organization is driven by a working philosophy which stresses a team-based investment management structure, independent thinking, in-depth and in-house research, and a long-term focus.
We invest alongside our clients and mutual fund shareholders and have a pride of independent ownership.
