George Walker Shares the Scope of His Unhurried M&A Strategy

News summary by MFWire's editors

George Walker is staying on the hunt for more teams and acquisition targets, but he says he has the time to be selective.

"We're not in a hurry. I meet with two or three teams a week — so 150 teams a year — and we'll add two," Walker, head of New York City-based Neuberger Berman [profile], tells the Financial Times. "What I care first, second and third about is that they're great investors and are going to deliver for our clients."

Walker puts his measured M&A pace in the context of Neuberger's ownership structure: about 535 of its employees collectively own 100 percent of the company. The firm has $295 billion in AUM and more than 1,900 employees across 31 cities.

For avid Neuberger watchers, the FT interview offers other tidbits: Walker walking his kids to school through the West Village and bumping into BlackRock chief Larry Fink; Walker talking about shareholder activism in the context of active vs passive; Walker's family tree; Neuberger's history under Walker; and more.
