The Journey to Leading a Global Investment Firm
Leading an investment firm, regardless of size, requires a combination of soft skills — empathy and understanding of what motivates people — and a breadth of management experiences built over time. In this episode, Mike talks with a respected leader of a global investment organization, Richard Brandweiner, CFA, CEO of Pendal Australia, about his unique career path and the important leadership characteristics he honed along the way, including service to others, showing humility, building trust and relationships across an organization, bringing diverse teams together for better decision making, and always trying to see the world through the lens of the client. Richard also discusses the recent proposal from Australian fund manager, Perpetual, to acquire Pendal and his priorities as CEO in managing the firm through this combination.
