Dodge & Cox's investment decisions are made by a team of seasoned investment professionals based on key fundamental factors that they believe determine investment value over the long term. The firm's investment analysts operate from a single location to foster communication and collaboration and each investment idea is subject to committee review for both its merits as a specific investment and its role in the overall portfolio. Their approach stresses an evaluation of risk relative to opportunity and we seek investments that we believe are undervalued by the market. Fundamental bottom-up research, a rigorous valuation discipline and a long-term investment horizon are central to Dodge & Cox's investment philosophy.

LSV Asset Management is a quantitative value equity manager that provides active investment management for institutional investors through the application of proprietary investment models. The firm's investment approach is based on the premise that superior long-term results can be achieved by systematically exploiting the judgmental biases and behavioral weaknesses that influence the decisions of many investors. LSV uses a strictly quantitative investment model to identify out-of-favor (undervalued) stocks that have the potential for near-term appreciation. Their portfolios typically have a deep value orientation relative to the indices. Market timing is not part of LSV's process and portfolios are generally fully invested with cash levels usually below 2 percent. LSV selects individual securities using a bottom-up, quantitative approach. All of their investment strategies use the same approach with investments segmented into different market-cap ranges and/or geographic regions. Portfolio turnover is approximately 30 percent for each strategy. LSV also offers socially responsible investment portfolios and has a strict policy against using soft dollars.
