Brandywine Global Investment Management, LLC (Brandywine Global) today announced that Celia Rodgers and Christy Brenza have joined the Fundamental Equity team. Both Brenza and Rodgers will serve as senior equity analysts, responsible for research across geographies, industries, and market capitalizations in support of the Firms fundamental equity products.
Rodgers, a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, comes to Brandywine Global after six years at Aberdeen Standard Investments, where she worked on a team managing $17 billion across small-, mid- and large-cap equities. Brenza, who holds an MBA from Duquesne University, brings to Brandywine Global over 18 years of investment research and related experience from institutional investment advisor C.S. McKee, L.P. Both women have earned Chartered Financial Analyst certification.
We are incredibly fortunate to have Celia and Christy joining our team, particularly in a year when we are experiencing net flows into our products, says Patrick Kaser, CFA, managing director and head of the Fundamental Equity team at Brandywine Global. Even more important, they help advance a forward-looking expansion plan for the team. These two analysts are exceptional, both in experience and knowledge. I have no doubt they will fit in well at Brandywine Global, and their contributions to the research and investment process will be significant.
Brandywine Globals Fundamental Equity team manages value-oriented strategies across the full range of market capitalizations, including the flagship Classic Large Cap Value strategy and the competitively differentiated Global Opportunistic Equity and Micro Cap Equity strategies. All of the teams investment strategies focus on bottom-up analysis to identify companies with overlooked or improving fundamental strength, as well as with industry-leading characteristics.
