Throughout much of the 20th century, the United States was the world's undisputed economic leader, producing and consuming more than any other nation. The new millennium, however, has ushered in a different economic paradigm. The seeds of globalization planted in the 1980's and 1990's have sprouted to life, and today's global economy is being driven not only by the United States, but also by Western and Eastern Europe, the UK, Japan, China, India, Latin America, and other countries and regions.
In today's global markets there exist just as many, if not more, investment opportunities outside of the U.S. as there are within its borders. In fact, the U.S. equity market makes up less than half of the world's equity market, so there are indeed an abundance of investment opportunities abroad.
The Oberweis International Opportunities Fund (the "Fund") seeks to identify and capitalize on the long-term investment opportunities offered by smaller, high-growth companies in Europe, the UK, Canada, Asia, Japan, and Latin America. The Fund's strategy focuses on identifying less well-known small-cap
growth companies which traditionally receive less attention than larger companies, consequently providing unique opportunities to unearth hidden values.
The investment team uses a structured approach to find under-followed companies with attractive valuations undergoing catalysts for change that are expected to drive earnings growth and positive earnings estimate revisions. The Fund is supported by a strong in-house team of analysts and traders with international experience and an extensive network of global contacts. The analysts conduct in-depth research from Oberweis Asset Management's headquarters in suburban Chicago.
The Oberweis International Opportunities Fund is a no-load fund that can be purchased directly through The Oberweis Funds, or through
most broker-dealers including mutual fund supermarkets such as the Fidelity FundsNetwork ®, Charles Schwab's Mutual Fund OneSource,® TD Waterhouse, and Oberweis Securities, Inc.
