Brandes Investment Partners Launches the Brandes Value NextShares Fund

SAN DIEGO, February 22, 2018 - Brandes Investment Partners (Brandes) today announced the launch of its first NextShares™ exchange-traded managed fund. The Brandes Value NextShares (Nasdaq: BVNSC) will seek to uncover companies with attractive value attributes and focus primarily on larger cap equity securities of U.S. issuers. This is the first time the Brandes U.S. Value Equity strategy will be available in a fund vehicle.

“We are pleased to offer our clients access to our actively managed investment approach within the innovative and efficient NextShares structure,” said Oliver Murray, Managing Director at Brandes. As exchange-traded products, NextShares have built-in cost and tax efficiencies. Unlike conventional ETFs, NextShares protect the confidentiality of fund trading information and provide buyers and sellers of shares with transparency and control of their trading costs.

Recognized as a global value investing pioneer, Brandes has over 40 years of U.S. value equity experience, and has managed a stand-alone U.S. value equity strategy for over 25 years. The launch of the Brandes Value NextShares Fund provides a unique opportunity for investors to take advantage of the firm’s experience and disciplined investment process in a vehicle with the cost and tax benefits of ETFs.
