Past performance shown on the Orbis funds described or disclosed on this website (collectively, the "Funds") is not a reliable indicator of future results. Values may fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested. It is therefore important that you understand the risks involved before investing. The Funds share prices fluctuate and are not guaranteed. When making an investment in the Funds, an investor’s capital is at risk.
The information contained on our website is being made available for the benefit of the present Members or Shareholders of the Funds and such other persons authorised by the Funds to receive such information, provided that such Members and other persons are not prohibited under the applicable laws of their citizenship, domicile or residence from receiving such information. No other persons are authorised by the Funds to receive such information.
The Funds are sold by prospectus or other forms of disclosure statements specified by applicable law only. Each Fund's prospectus/disclosure statement contains important information which you should read carefully before investing.
The information contained on our website is not intended to constitute an offer of any securities to any person, and is not intended for distribution to anyone in any jurisdiction where such distribution is not authorised or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such distribution.

References to specific securities should not be construed as investment advice.
The distribution of the information contained on our website and the offering of shares in the Funds is restricted in certain jurisdictions. Except as noted below, no action has been taken to permit either the distribution of this information or the offering of any of the shares of the Funds in any jurisdiction where action would be required for such purpose.

Each sub-fund of Orbis SICAV, a UCITS IV compliant Luxembourg fund, is admitted for public marketing in Luxembourg and the United Kingdom. In addition, Orbis SICAV Asia ex-Japan Equity Fund, Orbis SICAV Global Equity Fund, Orbis SICAV Global Balanced Fund and Orbis SICAV Japan Equity Fund are admitted for public marketing in Ireland, the Netherlands and Norway. The Orbis Funds that are not Orbis SICAV funds are alternative investment funds that are neither admitted for public marketing anywhere in the European Economic Area (EEA) nor marketed in the EEA for purposes of the Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive. As a result, persons located in any EEA member state will only be permitted to subscribe for shares in the Funds that are admitted for public marketing in that member state or, with respect to any other Fund, whether or not a sub-fund of Orbis SICAV, under certain circumstances as determined by, and in compliance with, applicable law.
Except in regard to the Orbis SICAV, a recognised scheme in the United Kingdom available to all UK resident investors, the information on this website is directed to professional clients (as defined in the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) Handbook). Our website is not designed, intended nor may be used as a financial promotion to any person in the UK other than such persons. None of the Funds are regulated by the FCA although the Orbis SICAV has been recognized by the FCA. The protections provided by the UK regulatory system, including recourse to the UK Financial Services Compensation Scheme, do not extend to investments in the Funds. Our website should not be accessed from the United Kingdom by any person other than these types of persons.
The EU Online Dispute Resolution platform (http://ec.europa.eu/consumers/odr/) is available to those Shareholders of the Orbis SICAV who are natural persons residing in a member state of the European Union and who use the Online Services (as defined below).
The Funds' prospectuses have not been registered by the Registrar of Companies in Hong Kong. The Funds are collective investment schemes as defined in the Securities and Futures Ordinance of Hong Kong (the “Ordinance”) but have not been authorised by the Securities and Futures Commission pursuant to the Ordinance. Accordingly, interests in the Funds may only be offered or sold in Hong Kong to persons who are “professional investors” as defined in the Ordinance and any rules made under the Ordinance or in circumstances which are permitted under the Companies Ordinance of Hong Kong and the Ordinance.

Collective Investment Schemes (CIS) are generally medium to long-term investments. The value of an investment in a Fund may go down as well as up, and past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. No Fund’s manager(s) provide(s) any guarantee with respect to capital or any Fund’s returns. CIS are traded at ruling prices and can engage in borrowing and scrip lending. Commission and incentives may be paid by investors to third parties and, if so, would be included in the overall costs. The Funds are priced weekly. A Fund may be closed to new investments at any time in order to be managed in accordance with its mandate. The Funds invest in foreign securities. Depending on their markets, trading in those securities may carry risks relating to, among others, macroeconomic and political circumstances, constraints on liquidity or the repatriation of funds, foreign exchange rate fluctuations, taxation and trade settlement.
Neither the shares in the Funds nor the Funds themselves have been registered under any United States securities legislation and are only offered through transactions that do not violate such legislation and do not require the registration of the Funds or the shares of the Funds in the United States of America or in any of its territories or possessions.

Such information is not intended for, may not, without the express consent of Orbis, be distributed to, and may not be relied upon by, any other party, including without limitation, any advisory or other client of the recipient. Orbis reserves the right to refuse service to anyone at any time without notice for any reason. You agree that you are responsible for your own communications and for any consequences thereof.
The website's purpose is only to provide general information or factual information about Orbis or regarding a current investment with Orbis. The content on the Orbis website is not intended to provide legal, tax or investment advice. You are solely responsible for determining whether any investment, investment strategy, security or related transaction is appropriate for you based on your personal investment objectives, financial circumstances and risk tolerance. You should consult your legal or tax professional regarding your specific situation.
Changes are periodically made to the information on our website or the content provided through email services and these changes will be incorporated from time to time in our website. Orbis expressly reserves the right, in its sole and absolute discretion, to alter or amend any information or content on our website without notice.
The information and content contained on our website or received through email services is relevant as of the dates expressly stated therein and no implication is being made that there has been no change in such information subsequent to such dates. The information is subject to change without notice.
Our website may now, or hereafter from time to time contain certain statements or information with respect to the projection of revenues, income, earnings per share, capital expenditures, dividends, capital structure, or other financial items; or the plans, objectives and/or projections of Orbis for future operations; or future economic performance. Orbis wishes to caution you that such projections are only predictions and that actual events or results may differ materially. Orbis is an active manager and any statement that relates to a specific issuer should not be treated as a representation that Orbis is pursuing any particular trading strategy. In particular, where the website or the content received through email services provides commentary on securities, financial instruments, indices, financial products or indicators, or economic conditions, it is done in the context of investment decisions for the Funds. The website content does not constitute a recommendation to buy, sell or hold any shares or other securities in the companies mentioned in it (“relevant securities”) nor does it constitute financial advice, and it has not been prepared in accordance with legal requirements designed to promote the independence of investment research. Orbis and its employees are subject to certain restrictions on dealing in relevant securities ahead of the dissemination of this commentary.
The Orbis Funds are speculative and involve a high degree of risk. The Funds’ performance may be volatile. An investor could lose all or a substantial amount of its investment. The Funds’ manager has total trading authority over the Funds and the use of a single adviser applying generally similar trading programs could mean lack of diversification and consequently higher risk. For some Orbis Funds, there is no secondary market for interests in the Fund, and none is expected to develop. There are restrictions on transferring interests in the Funds. The Funds’ fees and expenses may offset the Funds’ trading profits.
Allocations are subject to change at any time.
