Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss, LLC
Founded in 1979, Barrow Hanley has an outstanding long-term track record of providing its clients with superior performance and client service in a wide range of value-oriented investment strategies. The firm applies a strict definition of value that guides all of its investment decisions, as it employs disciplined, bottom-up analysis to construct value equity portfolios of U.S., non-U.S., global and emerging market securities that exhibit below-market price-to-earnings ratios, below-market price-to-book ratios, and above-market dividend yields, regardless of market conditions. The firm's value-oriented fixed income portfolios seek to achieve higher total returns with below-benchmark volatility by identifying temporarily mispriced securities with yield-to-maturity advantages over Treasury bonds of comparable maturity.
Barrow Hanley has a diverse and longstanding clientele; the average tenure of its client base is almost 10 years, and more than one-third of its assets are from clients who have maintained their relationships with Barrow Hanley for more than 20 years. In addition to direct relationships with institutional investors, the firm serves as the sub-advisor to more than 30 highly regarded mutual funds. The firm is led by Executive Director J. Ray Nixon and a team of Managing Directors specializing in multiple asset classes.
