Putnum reaches agreement with SEC, Bridgecorp increases profit, Your chance to hear AMP boss Andrew Mohl.

Monday, November 17th 2003, 6:43AM
Boston-based Putnam Investment Management, which manages money for BT Funds Management, has given the US Securities and Commission Exchange some undertakings with regards to the market timing scandal and it has also agreed to a process for calculating and paying restitution for losses attributable to these practices.

The SEC says that Putnam has agreed to undertake significant and far-reaching corporate governance, compliance, and ethics reforms.

"The reforms Putnam will undertake as part of the Commission's order are intended to provide real and substantial protections for mutual fund investors,” SEC Division of Enforcement director Stephen M. Cutler says in a statement.

"The required enhancements to the board oversight and compliance functions at Putnam should strengthen all aspects of Putnam's fund operations and provide investors with uncompromised representation by their fiduciaries in the boardroom and at the management company. In the meantime, we will continue pursuit of our request for penalties and other monetary relief in the ongoing administrative proceeding."

The amount of civil penalty and other monetary relief to be paid by Putnam remains open and will be determined at a later date.

Bridgecorp improves profit

Total assets were $512.7 million at June 30 2003 and total liabilities were $457.1 million.
