Fund Overview

The Motley Fool Independence Fund seeks great companies at value prices. We look for well-managed companies, both in America and abroad, that boast strong financial positions and operate in industries that our management team truly understands. Performing rigorous, fundamental analysis, we dissect each company's strategy, competitive position, operations, and performance, and we review all pertinent public documents and official communications about the company. Although we will invest with an intention to hold for the long term, we will also insist on keeping a solid margin of safety on all Fund holdings. As a result, we will sell any holding that we believe has exceeded its intrinsic value.
