Fidelity Executive Killed In Kayaking Accident

Aug 15 2011 | 12:18pm ET

Boyce Greer, head of Fidelity Investments' Strategic Advisers unit and its global asset allocation group, died yesterday in a kayaking accident in Idaho. He was 55 years old.

Greer was injured kayaking on the north branch of the Payette River in Banks, about 45 miles north of Boise, at about noon. He was pronounced dead at the scene. Details of the accident and Greer's injury were not released.

Greer joined Fidelity in 1987 as a portfolio manager, two years after receiving his Ph.D in public policy from Harvard University's John F. Kennedy School of Government. During his nearly 24 years at the firm, he handled fixed-income, municipal bonds, money markets and equity research before reaching his final posts at Fido.

Greer, who lived in Amherst, N.H., was an avid kayaker. In addition to his duties at Fidelity, he was a co-owner of kayaking equipment makers LiquidLogic and Legacy Paddlesports.
