Sectors, Silence and Research
Traders Magazine, March 2004
For John Russell, a trading executive with Franklin Advisers in San Mateo, California, silence is golden. At least this is true at the outset of the day. That's when Russell wants to be in "the library" with his traders, a team which appreciates a little early morning solitude. Russell, whose desk also runs high yield bonds and convertibles, arrives with the other pros shortly before 5:30 a.m. "The day starts with what I call library time," according to Russell, who came to Franklin right out of college in 1993, beginning as a management trainee. He also worked for the firm as he was pursuing his MBA. Today, he is the vice president and director of the trading desk.
