Magellan plots comeback, says it will regain global standing in 5 years

Posted by Anton Murray Consulting on 9 Nov, 2022

Speaking at the firm’s annual general meeting on Thursday, chief executive David George said Magellan will be a fund manager of global scale once more with over $100 billion of funds under management after five years. This will be quite a feat for the embattled firm given its FUM more than halved to $50.9 billion as of the end of September from $113.3 billion at the same time last year.
