Cadinha agrees to buy back control of investment firm
Advertiser StaffLongtime Honolulu money manager Harlan J. Cadinha has reached an agreement to buy back control of his Cadinha & Co. from Chicago-based Convergent Capital Management LLC in a transaction set to close by the end of the year.
Cadinha, currently chief investment strategist for the firm managing more than $500 million in assets, said he will become chairman and chief executive officer once the transaction closes. He said the 20-person firm may seek a broader spectrum of clients under his ownership.
Convergent had amassed a controlling stake in the company beginning seven years ago and recently reached a mutual decision with Cadinha to relinquish its stake, Cadinha said.
