Fund of America | Catalysts, Conviction, and Caution
For more than 25 years, First Eagle Fund of America has delivered higher total returns with lower volatility than most of the relevant benchmarks and Morningstar categories.
Fund of America’s performance reflects a distinctive approach to event-driven value investing that encompasses three key tenets:
- We seek to identify catalysts for corporate change;
- We maintain a concentrated portfolio of our high-conviction investments;
- We exercise caution by investing in companies that we believe are undervalued.

The event-driven investment style used by First Eagle Fund of America carries the additional risk that the event anticipated occurs later than expected, does not occur at all or does not have the desired effect on the market price of the securities.
The principal risk of investing in value stocks is that the price of the security may not approach its anticipated value or may decline in value.
Investment in gold and gold related investments present certain risks, and returns on gold related investments have traditionally been more volatile than investments in broader equity or debt markets.
All investments involve the risk of loss of principal.
