Sanders Capital Grabs its First Vanguard Sub-Advisory Spot

Reported by Patricia Kelly

On Wednesday Sanders Capital secured a sub-advisory victory. Vanguard revealed that the New York City-based firm will join the roster of sub-advisors for the Windsor II Fund (VWNFX) –- the Valley Forge, Pennsylvania-based investment manager's largest actively managed equity fund.

Sanders will oversee approximately 8.5 percent of the fund's assets, which totaled $35 billion as of December 31, 2009. Sanders is set to join a lineup of five other sub-advisors, which as of October 31, 2009 included: Barrow Hanley, overseeing 69% of the fund; Lazard Asset Management with 18 percent; Hotchkis & Wiley at 5 percent; Armstrong Shaw Associates with 4 percent; and the Vanguard Quantitative Equity Group, handling 2 percent. Barrow Hanley has worked with the fund since 1985, Vanguard Quantitative Equity Group since 1991, Hotchkis and Wiley since 2003, Armstrong Shaw since 2006, and Lazard Asset Management since 2007.

In an emailed statement to The MFWire, Vanguard spokeswoman Amy Chain confirmed that "Sander's portion of the fund was re-allocated from another of the other advisors," though Chain declined to name which advisor lost out.

The move is a big win for Sanders. Chain clarified that "this is the first and only fund that Sanders Capital manages for Vanguard."

At the helm will be Sanders Capital's CEO and co-CIO, Lewis A. Sanders, and John P. Mahedy, co-CIO and research director, who will share portfolio management duties for the firm's portion of the large-cap value fund. According to a company press release, the portion of the fund they will co-manage is slated to include 35 to 45 stocks with a low portfolio turnover rate between 30 and 40 percent annually.

“Vanguard seeks skilled, experienced managers who bring an investment approach and process that adds value to our funds,” stated Bill McNabb, CEO and chairman of Vanguard. “We view Sanders Capital as a natural fit, and are pleased to partner with such tenured and talented investment professionals.”

The Vanguard Windsor II Fund, which invests predominantly in large-and mid-cap companies whose stocks are deemed undervalued, was first launched in 1985.
