Growth stocks have crushed value stocks over the past decade: The Morningstar US Growth Index has an annualized return of 12.4% through August, compared with 9.3% for the Morningstar US Value Index.

David Green, principal at Hotchkis & Wiley, is a portfolio manager on two funds that are Morningstar Medalists, Hotchkis & Wiley Small Cap Value (HWSIX) and Hotchkis & Wiley Value Opportunities (HWAIX).

Our conversation took place on Aug. 23 and has been edited for length and clarity.
