Brandes Investment Partners' investment approach is based on use Graham & Dodd value principles with places emphasis on long-term total return. As a value-oriented, global investment advisor, the firm applies fundamental analysis to bottom-up security selection. Brandes believes that consistently buying businesses at discounts to conservative estimates of their intrinsic value has the potential to produce competitive long-term results. Their goal is to outperform relevant benchmarks over the long-term. Brandes offers a range of equity and fixed income strategies. The firm generally expects their strategies to be invested in the equity securities of approximately 35-85 issuers, depending on the availability of stocks meeting their selection criteria. Within that range, single country strategies are more likely to be at the lower end in terms of number of issuers, and multi-country strategies (particularly those focused on smaller-cap issuers) will likely be at the upper end. While Brandes' fixed income security selection approach focuses on securities they believe are priced below their actual value, they may also select securities for other reasons in order to manage portfolio characteristics including but not limited to average maturity, average rating, duration, and liquidity.^
