Finalist Fund Manager of the Year at the Money Management / Lonsec Awards 2012
We were a finalist in the Fund Manager of the Year category at the Money Management /Lonsec Awards 2012.
According to Money Management’s article, BTIM’s resilience during a tough financial period and its multi-boutique model are attributed to the company’s success over the past 12 months.
“We promote a culture of challenging one’s thoughts; it’s not all about the return, it’s also about ensuring that you understand the risk that you take and being risk-aware,” said Emilio Gonzalez, BTIM’s managing director and chief executive.
While Schroders’ shortlisting was no big surprise, Gonzalez also praised Magellan for playing the global game right. Both BTIM and Schroders are similar, in that they fall into the broader capability type of managers.
“I think it is good to see an organisation like Magellan – an Australian company – doing well managing overseas equities,” he said.
“I think that’s significant, it demonstrates that we can play on the global stage in terms of returns, because they’re very much competing against many global managers.”
