Mr. Bill Priebe visited
Marquette's AIM program
This week the AIM students at Marquette University were privileged to host veteran money manager, Bill Priebe, the founder of Geneva Capital Management.

In October 2014, Henderson Global, a London-based asset manager,  acquired Geneva Capital Management, a US growth equity manager founded in 1987. Geneva is known for specializing in high quality growth equity strategies. The acquisition was an important strategic milestone in the development of Henderson’s North American business as it added a seasoned US equity team with a strong, proven track record of small- and mid-cap equity investing.

Mr. Priebe is a member of the funds' Investment Strategy Group that conducts high quality fundamental research and is responsible for the management and oversight of the Henderson Geneva growth equity portfolios. Before founding Geneva, Mr. Priebe worked for First Wisconsin Trust Company. He graduated from Northern Illinois University where he also earned his Master’s in Finance - he later earned an MBA from the University of Chicago.

Bill Priebe, Dr. Krause, and Sarah Hillegass
discussed investment trends
Mr. Priebe briefly discussed the philosophy, strategy, and process behind the Henderson Geneva US Mid Cap Growth Fund and gave examples of stocks that met their investment criteria. Dr. David Krause, AIM program director said, “It was marvelous to have Mr. Priebe join us again. You can tell that he is a former educator as his class material is well organized and he was able to connect with the students through his presentation and real world examples. He provided valuable micro and macro-economic insights – and engaged the AIM students in investment-related discussions during and after class.”
