Andrew Beck (President & CEO, Senior Portfolio Manager); and Henry W. Sanders III, CFA (EVP, Senior Portfolio Manager). River Road was formed based upon its proprietary Absolute Value® investment discipline, a distinct portfolio management approach solely developed by River Road which is distinguishable from, and occupies a unique niche between, other types of investment styles.
