Capital Group has been performing exceptionally well under the leadership of Timothy D. Armour, an investment expert based in Los Angeles. He is the chairman and CEO of the group. It is a leading firm in the investment management industry and has been providing investment management services for over 8 decades. Mr. Armour has worked with Capital Group for more than 30 years. He has always had an interest in finance and investment and therefore studied economics at Middlebury College.
Chairman of Capital Group
Timothy Armour joined Capital Group’s Associate’s Program immediately after he graduated from college. His hard work and determination saw him secure a permanent position as an equity investment analyst at the company. In this position, he worked with various service companies and global communications companies in the U.S. He learned the ropes of the industry very fast and later became an equity portfolio manager at Capital Group.
Mr. Timothy Armour also served as chairman of the group’s management committee before he was finally appointed chairman of the group in July 2015 after the unexpected demise of the previous chairman, Mr. Jim Rothenberg. He had been undergoing leadership training and mentorship for some time before the unfortunate death of Mr. Rothenberg as part of the group’s new succession plan.
The plan was put in place to avoid a situation where the firm is left stranded because of the loss of a leader. There were a few other candidates but thanks to his contribution to the company over the years and the extensive experience he had gained working there, he trumped them all.
Janet Yang, CFA said that Mr. Timothy Armour’s foresight is the reason for the success of the group. The investment industry requires a lot of speculation and without a good leader, a firm can end up making huge losses from making wrong investment decisions. Tim is good at assessing and analyzing the industry trends and making accurate predictions about what their clients, employees and other stakeholders will need. This enables the group to plan ahead and always stay ahead of its competition.
Timothy Armour’s commitment to success is what has enabled him to provide such excellent leadership to Capital Group. He is responsible for leading the firm in setting business goals, both short-term and long-term, and coming up with strategies to ensure the goals are achieved. Timothy Armour’s experience as an equity investment analyst makes him well suited for his position. He loves to mentor young professionals who aspire to be like him.
