Meet George Putnam

George Putnam

A graduate of both Harvard Law School and Harvard Business School, George Putnam, III first became involved with distressed securities as a lawyer in the late 1970s. He founded New Generation Research, Inc. in 1986 after seeing the inefficient niche in which bankruptcies and turnarounds were researched.

Since the first issue of his flagship publication The Turnaround Letter hit the presses back in 1986, Putnam has always followed the same straight-forward, highly-profitable contrarian investment philosophy. Frequently quoted in Barron's, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, USA Today and other financial publications, Putnam was named USA Today's investment advisor of the year in 1990. In addition to his responsibilities at New Generation Research, he also serves as a Trustee for The Putnam Companies, a mutual fund group with over $100 billion in assets.
