Pimco’s Bill Gross Makes 6 New Hires in Wake of El-Erian’s Departure


Pimco, or Pacific Management Investment Company, is going through an overhaul after the resignation of co-chief officer Mohammed El-Erian and its 15 consecutive months of investor withdrawals in July, with clients taking out $830 million.

Bill Gross, who was flying solo as the chief investment officer after El-Erian left, has made six new hires and has brought back  Paul McCulley as chief economist. Mohsen Fahmi of Moore Capital Management, will focus on global  fixed-income assets. Fahmi will be the generalist portfolio manager at Newport Beach, the California based Pimco.

Deputy chief investment officer, Mihir Worah, said of Fahmi, “the breadth of his experience and passion for investing will serve our clients well.”
