博枫首席执行官Bruce Flatt接受彭博社专访

May 10, 2022 / By CanCham
近日博枫首席执行官Bruce Flatt接受彭博社专访,在“彭博财富与David Rubenstein” (Bloomberg Wealth with David Rubenstein) 节目中讨论了关于当下投资环境、公司发展和管理等话题。 博枫的亿万资产管理者 Flatt  揭示 3,700% 回报率背后的秘密 作为全球规模最大的另类投资公司之一,其负责人 Bruce Flatt 鼓励下属员工每天都犯一些小错误。  “这表示我们正在丈量我们应该达到的极限”,博枫资产管理公司的首席执行官在“彭博财富与 David Rubenstein”的某期节目中说道。“只是不要犯任何非常大的错误。” 现年 56 岁的 Flatt 自 2002 年以来一直领导着总部位于多伦多的博枫,并将其管理的资产增加到约 7,000 亿美元。他表示,该公司的股价正好反映了那句口头禅:“抓住机会,但要避免重大错误”:自 Flatt 接手以来,博枫的股票(包括股息)的回报率已超过 3,700%。相比之下,标准普尔 500 指数约为 500%。 博枫专注于基础设施投资,如收费公路、公用事业和房地产投资。与众多私募股权公司不同,博枫使用自有资金与客户共同投资。它在去年聘请了英国央行前行长 Mark Carney 来提升其环境、社会和治理业务,通过一只即将完成 150 亿美元募集的基金来帮助各大公司和公用事业单位实现碳中和。  博枫还在为个人投资者提供更多的财富管理产品。去年,在接手由旗下橡树资本(Oaktree Capital Management) 所管理的资产组合后,博枫创立了自己的私人房地产投资信托。Flatt 表示,公司正计划为基础设施和可再生能源业务打造类似的投资工具。 Flatt 认为:全球通胀率上升对博枫来说并非一定是坏事,因为它的业务和实物资产可以随着时间的推移而实现更高收入。 “通胀实际上对我们所做的大多数事情来说反而是有利的”,Flatt … Continue reading "博枫首席执行官Bruce Flatt接受彭博社专访"...
