The LSV Emerging Markets Equity Fund seeks long-term growth of capital. Security selection focuses on companies whose securities seem out of favor in the marketplace but have shown signs of recent improvement. LSV uses a quantitative investment model that ranks securities based on fundamental measures of value (i.e. price to earnings ratio) and indicators of near-term appreciation potential (i.e. recent price appreciation).
