What were 2010's biggest 10? And we're not talking about Bo Derek.
Stories about weddings, divorces, births and deaths are typically
among the most-read stories each year, and 2010 is no exception. (Speaking of weddings, congratulations are in order for Putnam Investments'
chief investment officer, who got married
earlier this month).
This year, wedding bells rang for BNY Mellon Asset Servicing and PNC Global Investment Servicing
, Nuveen Investments and FAF Advisors' long-term asset management business
, Federated Investors and SunTrust's money market mutual fund business
and Eaton Vance and Managed ETFs LLC
Then there are the divorces: there's the amicable divorce
and Allianz Global Investors Distributors
on the distribution front and the (still ongoing
) bickering between TCW
and Jeff Gundlach
in the wake of their December 2009 breakup.
Which leads us to the topic of births. Gundlach set up his own firm in December 2009 and in April of this year, launched
his first batch of mutual funds.
2010 also saw the passing of Fidelity's Victor Thay
(35), Integrity Viking Funds' Robert Loest
(66), Van Eck Associates chief investment officer Derek van Eck
(46) and Neuberger Berman co-founder Roy Neuberger
