"We heard from two industry icons who expressed confidence in the U.S.'s resource-rich economy, as well as in the financial resilience of large banks today," says Judy Olian, dean of UCLA Anderson School of Management. "It's obvious why Bill and Larry, who are a source of pride to the Anderson school, continue to shape financial markets around the world."Bill Gross, who manages the world's largest bond fund at Pacific Investment Management Co, (PIMCO) has been called "the nation's most prominent bond investor" by The New York Times and "the consigliore to the world's financial elite" by Forbes, (who counted him among "the world's most powerful people" in 2009 and 2010). Gross co-founded PIMCO and currently manages its Total Return fund, the world's largest mutual fund and is responsible for nearly $2 trillion worldwide. A former blackjack pro, Gross has said he still applies many of the principles learned then for spreading risk and calculating odds to his investment decisions. He is the author of two popular books on investing, " Bill Gross on Investing" and "Everything You've Heard About Investing Is Wrong." Gross has been a keynote at UCLA Anderson events and a commencement speaker. He is a noted philanthropist and a generous donor to our school.
