A Fund Bigwig Continues His Media Blitz


Since his arrival at One Post Office Square last summer after a long stint at 82 Devonshire Street, Putnam Investments' Bob Reynolds has tallied media appearances few fund CEOs can match. Reynolds has hosted at least two conference calls attended by scores of journalists, appeared on CNBC, discussed mark-to-market on Fox Business, was featured in Research Magazine, landed on the cover of Institutional Investor, and granted one-on-one interviews with many other media outlets such as The Wall Street Journal and trade publications including The MFWire and its sister pub, The 401kWire.

In his latest media interview, conducted by Bloomberg's Sree Vidya Bhaktavatsalam and Christopher Condon on Wednesday, Reynolds tells of his desire to bring Putnam to the top of the mutual fund heap.

"In the mutual fund space, we would like to be one of the top five players, no question about it, Reynolds said.

Reynolds said is open to hiring, or lifting out, investment teams from other companies. He is less interested in making an acquisition.
