PMs, we heart you.
The past few days have filled with love showers for a number of PMs from the press.
For example, the mutual fund comeback of former Janus
wunderkind Blaine Rollins
was dramatized epically in the Denver Post
. Rollins, who once helmed the flagship Janus Fund
, only to leave after some brutal market tailwinds, has jumped back into asset management with the 361 Global Macro Opportunity Fund
, sponsored by Tom Florence's 361 Capital
Meanwhile, Gavin Baker
, captain of the Fidelity OTC Portfolio
fund was chronicled by Barron's
. The article explores his early aspirations of working in the ski industry with interludes in rock-climbing and photography, and how he now searches for companies that he believes are building the future.
Heavily-seasoned industry veterans also got their due in a Morningstar article
. The lauded luminaries include FPA Capital
managers Bob Rodriguez
, Dennis Bryan
, and Arik Ahitov
; Royce Pennsylvania Mutual's Chuck Royce
and Jay Kaplan
; John Gunn and his nine-person team; Weitz Partners Value's Wally Weitz; ClearBridge Aggressive Growth's Richie Freeman and Evan Bauman; the Berwyn fund's Bob Killen, Lee Grout, and George Cipolloni.
All that's left are the autographs to be signed. Maybe flowers, or a dinner and a movie.
