William H. Gross

Bill Gross is one of the premier money managers of our time. As a founder and now co-chief investment officer of the Pacific Investment Management Company, he oversees one of the largest and best-performing fixed income investment portfolios in the world. Under his leadership, Pimco became a pioneer in the expert use of financial futures as well as many other financial derivatives, and at times the firm has been among the largest and savviest players in the Treasury and Eurodollar futures markets. But Gross, who served as a naval officer during the Vietnam War, is more than just a successful money manager. He also has authored numerous articles on the bond market as well as the 1997 book, Everything You’ve Heard About Investing is Wrong, and he is widely respected for his contributions to the theory and practice of financial analysis. Equally impressive, his monthly commentaries, a uniquely entertaining mix of personal anecdotes, investment insights and trenchant opinions on economics and government policy, have helped a whole generation of readers understand and appreciate the world of fixed income investing.
