David G. Herro, CFA

Partner and CIO-International Equities

David Herro has been a manager of the Oakmark International Fund since 1992, the Oakmark International Small Cap Fund since 1995, the Oakmark Global Select Fund since 2006 and the Oakmark Global Fund since 2016. He is also the chief investment officer for international equities at Harris Associates, which he joined in 1992, and a vice president of the Oakmark Funds.

His career honors include being named Morningstar’s International Stock Fund Manager of the Year in 2006, International Stock Fund Manager of the Decade for 2000-09 and International Stock Fund Manager of the Year in 2016.

Mr. Herro has an M.A. in economics from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee (1985) and a B.S. in business/economics from the University of Wisconsin-Platteville (1983).

According to Morningstar, the Morningstar Manager of the Year award is presented to portfolio managers based on the managers’ (i) “ability to generate exceptional returns;” (ii) “willingness to align their interests with shareholders;” and (iii) “courage to stay with their strategies in order to produce superior risk-adjusted returns in the end.

According to Morningstar, the Fund Manager of the Decade award, which is a new award from Morningstar, recognizes fund managers who have achieved superior risk-adjusted results over the past 10 years and have an established record of serving shareholders well. While the awards focus on performance over the past decade, Morningstar takes into consideration other factors, including the fund manager’s strategy, approach to risk, size of the fund, and stewardship. Both individual fund managers and management teams are eligible, and being a previous winner of the Morningstar Fund Manager of the Year award isn’t a prerequisite. Morningstar’s fund analysts select the Fund Manager of the Decade award winners based on Morningstar’s proprietary research and in-depth evaluation.

We do value investing differently

At Oakmark, we don’t have an opinion about how equities will perform this year, if a recession will start or if the political parties will produce pro-growth candidates for 2020. As long-term investors, we don’t think it matters.
