Board of Directors of Capital Group elected Timothy as the chairman in 2015. He succeeded James Rothenberg, who died of a heart attack. Tim holds a bachelor‘s degree in Economics in Middlebury College, qualifying as a participant in The Associates Program at Capital, which is the leading investment management firm in the world during his early career life. He covered telecommunications and service companies with his experience in investment. Before becoming chairman and CEO, Timothy Armour was the key deputy of the former chairman. He chairs both the Capital Group’s management committee and Capital Research and Management Company.
Timothy Armour’s work includes overseeing the company’s operations and implementing the overall business strategies. Among those backing in-house research meant to show the long-term benefits of various kinds of the management fund was Timothy.
However, he had advice for investors that they should look for active managers who will not settle for less or average or agitate their selections. Example, Blockbuster rose to $5 billion, and Netflix was a fledging having something in common. It turned out that Blockbuster went bankrupt and Netflix soared to $45 billion and grew strong, proving that success is about studying the details of the company against the possibilities of the future.
Capital Group partnered with Samsung Asset Management that offers hope for the corporate retirement plan for the employees. The partnership was to co-develop retirement solutions and asset allocation products and also enhance SAM’s investment capability. On this scheme, Timothy thinks that its broader plan is to co-design investment solutions to fulfill savings, retirement and insurance-linked needs for Korean investors.
Armour also has a perspective on the September market selloff of 2015. He thought that China was responsible for 15% of the world’s GDP, making it a greater influence on the global market than never before. Developed countries like Europe, Australia, Japan and HONG KONG have no choice but to deal with the potential of a decline in export activities as a result of China’s continuing impact on the world’s economy.
