Due to various risks and uncertainties, actual events/results or the performance of the Large Cap Fundamental Value (LCFV) strategy may differ materially from those reflected or contemplated in such forward-looking statements.

Investment returns include reinvestment of dividends, interest and capital gains. Valuation is based on trade-date information. Net performance results are presented after actual management fees and all trading expenses but before custodial fees. The Large Cap Fundamental Value strategy’s returns for different time periods and market cycles can result in significantly different performance results. An account’s investment guidelines, timing of transactions, market conditions at the time of investment and other factors may lead to different performance results. The Composite includes all Large Cap Fundamental Value discretionary accounts. The Large Cap Fundamental Value strategy seeks current income and long-term growth of income, as well as capital appreciation, primarily through investments in equity securities of large capitalization companies and may invest in foreign (non-U.S.) securities. Additional performance disclosures are included in the strategy’s GIPS Report. The Russell 1000 Value Index measures the performance of those Russell 1000 companies with lower price-to-book ratios and lower forecasted growth values. The S&P 500 Index is a broad-based unmanaged index of 500 stocks, which is widely recognized as representative of the equity market in general.

General Electric and Wells Fargo are current holdings in the Large Cap Fundamental Value strategy as of podcast date, but may be removed at any time, for any reason, without notice, subsequent to the podcast date. The securities detailed in this podcast are intended to be for illustrative purposes only and are not intended to be, and should not be construed as, investment recommendations. There is no assurance that the securities discussed will remain in the portfolio or that securities sold have not been repurchased. Past performance of these securities, or any other investments, is not an indicator of future results. Hotchkis & Wiley’s opinions regarding these securities are subject to change at any time, for any reason, without notice. No assurance is made that any securities identified, or all investment decisions by H&W were or will be profitable.

Investing in equity securities have greater risks and price volatility than U.S. Treasuries and bonds, where the price of these securities may decline due to various company, industry, and market factors. Investing in foreign as well as emerging markets involves additional risk such as greater volatility, political, economic, and currency risks and differences in accounting methods.

A value-oriented investment approach involves the risk that value stocks may remain undervalued or may not appreciate in value as anticipated. Value stocks can perform differently from the market as a whole or from other types of stocks and may be out of favor with investors and underperform growth stocks for varying periods of time. Value and growth investing styles will go in and out of favor during different economic environments. Growth investing tends to work well during speculative, momentum-driven markets, while value investing tends to work well following recessionary periods.

Market Disruption: The global coronavirus pandemic has caused disruption in the global economy, unprecedented business and travel disruption and extreme fluctuations in global capital and financial markets. H&W is unable to predict the consequences of the upheaval caused by coronavirus pandemic, which has the potential to negatively impact the firm’s investment strategies and investment opportunities.
