UCLA Anderson Reunites Two Of The World's Most Influential Money Managers

"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.

Larry Fink, chairman and CEO of BlackRock, has been named one of the "World's Best CEOs" by Barron's each year since 2005, and distinguished as one of the most respected people in finance by the Financial Times, Forbes, Fortune and SmartMoney.  He received UCLA Anderson's 2007 Distinguished Alumni Award and has been a major player in the financial industry since earning his MBA in 1976.  Since BlackRock's inception in 1988, Mr. Fink has kept client centric solutions and innovation at the forefront of his leadership, building a once small fixed income boutique into a global asset manager with more than 9,000 employees in 27 countries.  A renowned philanthropist, Mr. Fink's generous leadership and financial contributions led to the school naming the Laurence and Lori Fink Center for Finance and Investment in his honor.
