A San Fran Fundster Takes Over a $320B AUM Multinational
A California fundster and institutional asset management veteran is taking over a publicly traded Canadian multinational's 1,250-employee, $320-billion-AUM asset management arm, even as two executives take over (at least for now) a publicly traded U.S. giant's $466-billion-AUM asset management arm.
"There is no executive search underway at this time. The company has great confidence in Kirk and Nico and their ability to lead the asset management division," Julavits adds. "They will assume responsibility for executing the business strategy, lead the team through this transition, and continue to focus on our clients."
"She has a passion for making a difference for clients by solving the most pressing investment challenges they face," Rotenberg states. "Her asset management expertise, creativity, and technological acumen will be a strong catalyst in our next chapter of growth."
"I look forward to her joining our team and building on Richard's success in leading BMO's asset management business to drive exceptional performance and service for our clients," White states. "I am confident in our ability to provide innovative investment solutions, consistently driving client loyalty, strengthening our competitive position and fueling growth across our entire wealth platform."
"He has positioned BMO as a significant global asset manager, with BMO GAM stewarding more than $320 billion in assets under management," Rotenberg states. "Under his leadership, we have brought world-class capabilities to all of our markets."
