OBIIX Institutional Class

Fund Objective

The Oberweis International Opportunities Institutional Fund’s investment objective is to maximize long-term capital appreciation.

Investment Strategy

The Fund invests principally in the common stocks of companies that Oberweis believes have the potential for significant long-term growth in market value. The Fund invests, under normal circumstances, at least 80% of its net assets in the securities of companies based outside the United States. The Fund seeks to invest in those companies that Oberweis considers to have above-average long-term growth potential. Oberweis selects companies that meet this criteria based on, among other things, fundamental analysis of individual securities. Oberweis’s fundamental analysis entails an evaluation of an individual company’s future growth prospects. Oberweis’s evaluation may be based on, among other things, financial statement analysis, stock valuation in relation to Oberweis’s estimate of future earnings, evaluation of competitive product or service offerings, future research and development pipeline, and management interviews. Oberweis may actively trade the Fund’s portfolio, and as a result, the Fund’s portfolio turnover rate may be high. There are no restrictions on the capitalization of companies whose securities the Fund may buy; however, the Fund generally invests in the stocks of smaller companies. Oberweis generally considers companies with a market capitalization of less than $5 billion as small-size companies.

The gross expense ratio of expense off set arrangements and expense reimbursements was 1.14% for OBIIX. Oberweis Asset Management, Inc. (OAM), the Fund’s investment advisor is contractually obligated through April 30, 2024 to reduce its management fees or reimburse OBIIX to the extent that total ordinary operating expenses exceed in any one year 1.10% expressed as a percentage of each Fund’s average daily net assets. Effective May 15, 2023, the adviser may recoup the amount of any expenses reimbursed under the contract within three years following the date of the reimbursement if the recoupment does not cause the Fund’s expenses to exceed the expense limitation in place at the time of the recoupment, or the expense limitation in effect at the time of the initial reimbursement, whichever is lower.

Our Process


Our process rests on our firmwide commitment to uncovering and capitalizing on the persistent and recurring stock pricing inefficiencies in global equities caused by a lag in investor response to new information. This lag in recognizing the catalysts likely to positively impact future earnings growth drives the security selection across all our strategies and mutual funds. The criteria used within each product, however, can differ. This is how our investment team implements our philosophy in the International Opportunities fund.
