Brandes has sought to cultivate a culture in which the sum is greater than its parts. We believe that where investment selection is concerned, more heads are better than one. Rather than relying on a star manager to make portfolio choices, we work as a team and continuously seek to develop the capabilities of our team members. This approach helps diminish the errors or oversights that can result from a single decision-maker. By drawing appropriately on the talents, experience and insights of all team members, we are able to nurture colleagues who are new to Brandes and to prime them for additional responsibilities. This, in our view, is the best way to foster a climate of enduring professional excellence.
