Why is the Pendal share price one to watch?
Pendal is an independent, global investment management group founded in 2007. Formerly known as BT Investment Management, Pendal has ~$100 billion in funds under management (FUM) with a market capitalisation of $2.0 billion.
The Pendal share price is on watch this morning after a Pendal Group CEO Succession announcement. Pendal announced that CEO Emilio Gonzalez will step down after 11 years in the role.
Nicholas Good, CEO of J O Hambro Capital Management (JOHCM) in the United States will be Mr Gonzalez’s successor. JOHCM is a wholly owned subsidiary of Pendal’s and a boutique investment management company with offices around the world.
Pendal chair James Evans said the “robust succession plan” has enabled the key appointment. Mr Gonzalez has a 6-month notice period and will look to enable a “smooth” transition.
Pendal shareholders have seen a 322.9% total return since Mr Gonzalez’s appointment in January 2010. That compares to a 130.1% total shareholder return for the S&P/ASX 200 Index (ASX: XJO) over the same period.
What else is happening for Pendal?
The Pendal share price has fallen 4.9% lower to start the year. That’s despite the investment group reporting a $5 billion increase in FUM in January 2021.
Pendal reported $97.4 billion in FUM at the end of last year despite net outflows of $1.6 billion. Shares in the Aussie investment group are up 40.5% in the last year.
