24th September 2015 - Following our news release on 12th August 2015 regarding Richard Buxton taking over as CEO of Old Mutual Global Investors, we had a meeting with him to discuss how he was getting along in his dual role as both CEO and fund manager of the Elite Rated Old Mutual UK Alpha fund.
We deduced that Richard will be able to manage the dual position very well, and that his CEO duties should have no impact on his ability to manage the Old Mutual UK Alpha fund. We feel extremely relaxed about the additional role he has taken on, and believe our decision to maintain the Elite Rating on the fund is correct.
We are hosting an investment dinner for journalists with Richard, and Mark Holman, CEO of TwentyFour Asset Management, on 10th November 2015. If you have any questions for either Richard or Mark, please send us an email at email@example.com. We will post an update on their views following the dinner.
