? Security Global Investors, the asset management arm of Security Benefit Corp. of Topeka, Kansas, announced its integration with Rydex Investments, under which Security Global’s CEO Richard Goldman has assumed the position of CEO for the combined asset management firm. Rydex CEO Carl Verboncoeur will transition to an advisory role in which, among other duties, he will continue to serve on the Rydex Funds’ board. The firm will operate as Security Global Investors, and market its investment products as Security Global Investors to the institutional investment community and as Rydex Investments to the retail markets.

Peter Sundman, chairman and CEO of the Neuberger Berman funds, left Neuberger Investment Management on January 5 to serve as president and CEO of ClearBridge Advisors–Legg Mason’s largest investment management arm.

At ClearBridge, Sundman will fill a void left by the departure in March 2008 of its former chief, Brian Posner. ?
