Dear Sequoia Shareholders and Clients:

For the second quarter of 2020, Sequoia Fund generated a total return of 27.21% net of fees,1 versus a 20.54% return for the Standard & Poor's 500 Index. The Fund generated a total return of -0.99% year-to-date through June 30, 2020, versus a -3.08% return for the Index.

We've appended our annual investor day remarks to this letter, with information on many of the Fund's holdings and portfolio activity year-to-date. You can also find the slides referenced during our meeting on our website at www.ruanecunniff.com. Mark your calendars: next year's annual investor day will take place on Friday, May 21, 2021. We very much look forward to seeing you in person for our meeting and hopefully we will have an opportunity to see you before then.
