Brandes' point of view

Many investment firms have been founded by talented and visionary individuals. Some ended up limited to the personal ambitions of the founder and faded over time. Others enjoyed great growth and evolved into mega firms which eventually had little in common with their origins. Not us! 

Fifty years ago, Charles Brandes founded the firm that still bears his name. More importantly, Brandes Investment Partners has sought to remain true to the principles on which it was founded: a commitment to global value investing in the public markets. Succeeding generations of investment professionals have honed their skills at the firm, and are committed to maintaining the philosophy, process, culture, and commitment to clients.
