CEO Tapes: Buxton to Gilbert - ‘my Glencore quandary’

Do not miss the first two minutes of this film. It starts with a bombshell from Richard Buxton, chief executive of Old Mutual Global Investors, who says that he has been challenged by one of his clients for owning shares in a company where Martin Gilbert, CEO of Aberdeen Standard Investments, is a non-executive director.

Though no one actually says the G word, it is clear what they are referring to. 

And we thought this was going to be a sedate chat about the merits of ESG investing!

(NB: This tape was filmed before the recent announcement that Gilbert was taking a break from his non-executive duties at Glencore to focus on his non-exec duties at Sky).

The eight participants were:

Andrew Formica, co-chief executive, Janus Henderson Investors 

Andrew Telfer, joint senior partner, Baillie Gifford 

Martin Gilbert, co-chief executive, Standard Life Aberdeen 

Saker Nusseibeh, chief executive, Hermes Investment Management 

Richard Buxton, chief executive, Old Mutual Global Investors

Robert Higginbotham, head of global investment services, T Rowe Price

Robert Fairbairn, senior managing director, BlackRock 

Frédéric Janbon, chief executive, BNP Paribas Asset Management
