Sad to report.
Elizabeth Bramwell, the founding manager of Gabelli & Co.’s growth mutual fund who quit to form her own asset-management firm and became a beacon for women in the field, has died. She was 74.
Bloomberg News reports that she died on March 7 after collapsing during her weekly badminton game on New York’s Upper East Side. The cause was a blood clot.
Financial Planning magazine in 2007 described Bramwell as a 'money management doyenne'. She worked on Wall Street for 45 years, starting in 1967 as an analyst at Morgan Guaranty Trust Co. In 1985, after being employed at several other firms, her Columbia Business School classmate and celebrated money manager, Mario Gabelli, invited her to join his firm.
