TMF keeps its stars, Bridgecorp still raising money, FPIA Conference page, Financial Forecasts for 2001, Saving money on mortgages

Sunday, January 28th 2001, 10:25PM

Morningstar has decided to let Tower Managed Funds (TMF) keep its four star rating despite a restructuring and significant staff changes.

TMF outsources most of its asset management to sister company Tower Asset Management (TAM). Late last year TAM went through major changes that resulted in its offices in Sydney and Wellington being combined, with representation kept in both locations.

TAM NZ boss Paul Bevin became the managing director of the combined business and Craig Turnbull took over the chief investment officer role.

"Bevin’s appointment at the helm represents a particular advantage in respect to TAM’s Wellington-based team, with the established strengths of TAM in New Zealand likely to be protected and built upon under the new structure," Morningstar says.

"Significantly, the combined New Zealand/ Australian management team is heavily-dominated by New Zealand-based staff, reflecting the relative strength of TAM in New Zealand, as opposed to the previously separate Australian operation."

Bridgecorp still raising money
Bridgecorp successfully raised more than $10 million in its pre-Christmas capital note offer.

Despite raising more than the targeted $10 million the company is planning to keep the offer open. It can accept up to $20 million under the terms of the offer.

Get focussed
To help you focus on the year ahead Good Returns' annually publishes its special feature - Financial Forecasts.

Financial Forecasts is made up of a number of separate articles which cover each of the major asset classes, and the important areas of tax, super and savings, insurance and technology.

Each of these articles is written by an expert in the area, and is designed to help you focus on what lies ahead over the next 12 months.

Financial Forecasts 2001, which is done in association with the Bank of New Zealand, will be published later this week.
