The wisdom of great investors

We are pleased to provide you with access to a series of videos featuring Chris Davis, Chairman, Portfolio Manager and Analyst from Davis Advisors. The PAN-Tribal Global Equity Fund was launched in 2014, with Davis Advisors as the Sub Investment Manager, responsible for the day to day investment management of the Fund.

In making the decision to appoint Davis Advisors there were a range of factors that appealed to the PAN-Tribal Board; longevity, a simple and sensible investment philosophy and process, and a history steeped in alignment of interest and stewardship. In viewing these videos, we are positive that not only will these attributes be self-evident, but you will also gain an insight into the unique culture and beliefs that have made Davis Advisors a generational success story.
