Our team looks to be active, positive, and responsible members of our communities. Hotchkis & Wiley encourages charitable giving through firm-wide and employee matching programs. For many years, our firm has sponsored a high school internship program dedicated to serving low income families. Additionally, our team members enthusiastically volunteer and support a wide range of nonprofit organizations including education, arts, athletics, and homeless services.
Hotchkis & Wiley is committed to increasing diversity and promoting an inclusive workplace that ensures all employees achieve their full potential. We believe a wide range of thought and backgrounds strengthens our team and leads to better investment decisions. Our company encourages every employee to help recruit diverse, talented individuals to join our firm and contribute to its success.
Hotchkis & Wiley has managed socially responsible strategies since 1993. In 2013, we became a signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment, a voluntary framework for incorporating ESG issues into investment decision-making and ownership practices.
Consideration of ESG factors is an integral and ongoing part of our investment process. Our fundamental approach reviews governance policies, environmental practices, and employment/social programs because we believe each ESG component can impact the intrinsic value and/or risk profile of a company.
We consider proxy voting an important part of the investment process and seek to vote proxies in the best interests of our separate account and mutual fund clients. For more information on our policy and procedures, please click here.
