Turner Investments names four new principals


Turner Investments has awarded equity ownership to four employees. With their appointments, 79 employees, or 83% of the firm's 95-person workforce, are now principals.

The principalships reward employees who have helped the firm to serve clients well in terms of investment performance and service. Says Bob Turner, chairman and chief investment officer of the firm: “We believe in recognizing and rewarding those employees who internalize our firm's values, go above and beyond what is required, and are team players – essentially, employees who think and act like owners. A primary way we reward them is by spreading equity ownership broadly throughout the firm.”

Turner Investments, founded in 1990, is an investment firm based in Berwyn, Pennsylvania. As of December 31, 2012, Turner managed more than $10 billion in growth, global/international, and long/short investment portfolios in stocks for both institutions and individuals.
