Nygren Thinks About Succession as Harris Anoints Two

Reported by Tommy Fernandez

Bill Nygren is getting some extra help, in the form of two new PMs.

Harris Associates has appointed Win Murray and Tony Coniaris to co-helm the the Oakmark Select Fund with Nygren effective January 28th.

Nygren has been a manager of Oakmark Select since its inception in 1996. He co-managed the fund with Henry Berghoef from 2000 until Berghoef's retirement in July 2012.

A 2001 Morningstar winner in the domestic equity category, Nygren was a finalist in this year’s race, but was beaten by Mairs & Power PMs Bill Frels and Mark Henneman.

Nygren made some prophetic comments regarding the hiring of the two new PMs.

"While I expect to be at Oakmark for many more years, we need to think about succession for the funds, and we are fortunate to have so much talent at Harris Associates," he said in a press release. "Win and Tony are both younger than I am, and bringing them in as co-managers now will ensure investment continuity for Select far into the future."

Murray is 42, while Coniaris is 36. Nygren, who is 54, has been with Harris since 1983.
