Ariel Focus Fund (the “Fund”) is a non-diversified fund, and therefore may be more volatile than a more diversified investment. Investing in equity stocks is risky and subject to the volatility of the markets. Investing in small and mid-cap stocks is more risky and more volatile than investing in large cap stocks. The intrinsic value of the stocks in which a portfolio invests may never be recognized by the broader market.

An economic moat is a perceived competitive advantage that acts as a barrier to entry for other companies in the same industry. This perceived advantage cannot protect investors from the volatility associated with stocks, incorrect assumptions or estimations, declining fundamentals or external forces. Ariel’s proprietary moat rating mentioned was current at the time of the interview, is subject to change, and is based on information, assumptions and estimations that were current at that time.
