Barrow, Hanley, Mewhinney & Strauss has a strict definition of value. Our equity portfolios exhibit below-market price-to-earnings ratios, below-market price-to-book ratios, and above-market dividend yields, regardless of market conditions. As a result, each of our clients is assured that we will do our part to maintain the style integrity of their overall portfolio. In fixed income, we define value as temporarily mispriced securities with yield-to-maturity advantages over Treasury bonds of comparable maturity. We identify each opportunity from the bottom up, building a duration-neutral portfolio designed to "out-yield" the market. In this way, Barrow Hanley seeks to achieve higher total returns for our fixed income clients with below-benchmark volatility. Mutual Fund Sub-Advisory Services Stability of investment team, strict adherence to style and uniformity of process are hallmarks of Barrow Hanley. Through an investment in a Barrow Hanley sub-advised mutual fund, individual investors are able to access the research-driven, bottom-up approach to active security selection that is utilized by major pension plans, foundations and endowments, and other institutional investors worldwide. Barrow Hanley currently serves as a sub-advisor to more than 30 equity and fixed income mutual funds. In addition to sub-advising an array of nationally-recognized mutual funds in the U.S., we sub-advise a number of internationally-based funds.
