With a truly global focus and a long-term horizon, the Oppenheimer Global Fund invests in companies regardless of their location.

Oppenheimer Equity Income Fund

Company fundamentals change slowly while investor perceptions can change in a matter of hours. At the same time most portfolio managers spend an enormous amount of resources discovering stock ideas with little understanding of how long they are prepared to hold.

Oppenheimer Capital Appreciation Fund

Companies with fiscal discipline offer unique investment opportunities, but that disciplined use of capital can vary from one company to another.
