Pro talks is a podcast where we want to chat to CEO’s, Founders, and other high profiled executives within the asset management industry. Over the months, we want to go further inside the most relevant figures in the industry, and chat to them about topics such us corporate culture, sustainability, evolution of the industry or diversity.
In this first episode we talked with Gavin Rochussen, CEO of Polar Capital about how he became the CEO of this asset management company, his background, motivations, and beliefs, and why Corporate culture and Education are very important to attract and retain talent, as well as why giving back to the society is important when you are in a position of privilege.
“Corporate culture is actually key essential, it was something we really wanted to save during the pandemic, through the lockdown, retaining that corporate culture, and our culture is based on transparency and meritocracy“
“I think success as a the Chief Executive of a listed asset manager is performing for your clients, provide value, and giving to society. We have an obligation of giving back to society. You need to give more to society than you take back, and that is for me what is achieving success.”Gavin Rochussen, CEO of Polar Capital
