Race for the Chairmanship of Capital Group

Timothy Armour is one of the two leading candidates for the position of Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Capital Group, one of the biggest funds in the world. Today, the group manages assets worth over $1.4 trillion. If he is elected chairman, Timothy will finally oversee a new active fund management system and get rid of the current index tracker funds.

The chairmanship position of Capital Group became vacant after the former chairman, Jim Rothenberg, passed away from a heart attack while vacationing. The new chairman will be tasked with rebuilding the group’s market share that has fallen behind thanks, in part, to the rise of passive fund managers within its ranks.

A management reshuffle is expected following a board meeting called to name a new Chairman. Tim is the present chair of Capital Group’s management committee and, until recently, served as Jim Rothenberg’s deputy. Apart from pushing for an active fund management system at Capital Group, Timothy Armour also played a huge role in bringing transparency to its operations.

Top Contenders

Another top contender and a key member of Capital Group’s leadership is Rob Lovelace (Jonathan Lovelace’s grandson). Jonathan founded the group in 1931. Rob has accomplished a lot at the group, which has made him a leading candidate for the top job.

According to Alec Lucas from Morningstar, the Capital Group has managed to turn around flows due to good performance, engaging stakeholders through advertising, relying more on product sales, and through its active management research. According to Mr Lucas, both Timothy Armour and Rob Lovelace have earned a right to lead the Group thanks to their accomplishments and leadership qualities.

Timothy Armour

Timothy Armour has served as Chairman and CEO of the Capital Group since 2015. Tim took over from Jim Rothenberg as Chairman after the latter passed away.

Securus Technologies Reveals How GTL Swindled Taxpayers

Securus Technologies, a company from Dallas that services law enforcement, emergency first respondents and jails around the country has issued a press release stating that they will highlight some of the abuses by fellow inmate communication provider GTL. “Global Tel Link or GTL has done many despicable acts that have swindled taxpayers of millions of dollars” says Richard Smith, who is the CEO of Securus Technologies.

The revealing and highlighting of GTL’s fraudulent behavior that basically cheated the public and the families of inmates should shame Global Tel Link into behaving more responsibly. Richard Smith believes that exposing the wrongdoings and fraud of GTL should force them to raise their level of integrity and service. The actions of GTL have tarnished the reputation of the inmate communication industry of which Securus Technologies is a major part of. Securus technologies aims to provide reasonable, transparent and honest service to inmates, families and law enforcement. It also at the same time believes that security should be at the top of the priority.

The first of a set of press releases by Securus Technologies shows the fraud committed by Global Tel Link in the Louisiana prison system. There GTL has been found guilty of adding anywhere from 15 seconds to 36 seconds to each inmate call that was going outside. The Louisiana Public Commission report also found that GTL would add on additional fees and charges to the bills of inmates or their families. Calls were also rated on the highest possible rate in violation of tariffs and agreements with state, prison and local officials.

Such behavior shows just how low GTL is willing to stoop to try to suck out as much as profits as it can from the taxpayer and unsuspecting families and inmates. The report in Louisiana estimates that such actions cost the state more than $1,200,000 in additional expenses that were paid through taxpayer funds.
