Ariel Investments Chairman and Co-CEO John Rogers said his team is closely looking at its holdings to find companies that can withstand an economic downturn from the coronavirus pandemic. 

"We've been evolving a lot over the last week or 10 days, really making sure we're hunkered down and understanding the balance sheet strength of the companies we've been investing in," Rogers said.
