Abstract

The purpose of this case is to provide an introduction to fixed income portfolio management. In addition, the case describes the story of Bill Gross and the founding of PIMCO.

Bill Gross continues to work the same schedule since joining PIMCO in 1970; a rigorous and structured workday that begins at 5:30 AM. Gross’ uncanny work ethic and his exemplary ability to focus and obsess over the details prove to be vital to his rise and success at PIMCO and the financial world, gaining him the moniker "The Bond King."
