Scheer, Rowlett & Associates Investment Management Limited (“SRA”) is pleased to provide a personnel update.
Lloyd Rowlett will be retiring from his role as Chairman of Scheer Rowlett as of December 31st, 2023 as part of the long term succession plan that began over 7 years ago, and Ratul Kapur will continue in his capacity as President and Chief Investment Officer at SRA (commenced on January 1st 2023).
“We founded the firm 27 years ago to manage money for clients using a value investment philosophy, and as I look back it’s fulfilling to see that we’ve stayed consistent with that approach over the entire time and through a wide variety of market conditions. We’ve done our best to ensure that clients who placed their trust in us were rewarded with the full efforts of our talented and committed team. I’m very proud of the quality of the individuals we’ve attracted to the firm whose duty will be to continue to do the best they can using the same value investment process for our valued clients after my retirement. I’m pleased with the returns we’ve posted over the past few years as Ratul has taken on more of my duties. I’m also confident that under his leadership the SRA team is very well positioned to continue to deliver strong performance to our clients through the same value investing approach the firm has utilized since it was founded.” says Lloyd Rowlett.
Lloyd’s retirement is the culmination of a carefully planned succession process that involved the gradual transition of his responsibilities to Ratul Kapur, who joined the firm in 2017, became Co-Lead PM in 2020, Co-CIO in 2021 and President and CIO on January 1st, 2023.
“On behalf of the entire SRA team, we would like to thank Lloyd for his mentorship and guidance over the years and congratulate him on a successful career as an investor and in setting up our business for long term success. As value investors, we remain excited about the prospects for our clients’ portfolios going forward and will strive to live up to the example that Lloyd has set for us in terms of discipline, commitment, and hard work. We wish Lloyd a happy and healthy retirement.” Ratul Kapur.
