1) Since when was PIMCO a hedge fund? When I worked with them doing their SEC reporting, there never once was any mention of this idea of "hedge fund". Just way too many different fixed income funds and associated filings.

2) If you want to find the AUM of different shops jump on EDGAR and start looking through 13F's. There's plenty of lists out there of fixed income shops to look up as well. Not to mention your friend, the search bar, here on WSO.

3) As for fixed income vs equities - you're on your own there champ. Are you talking about working in one of these shops, or investing there?

If that's what it takes to count as moving into hedge, then the term has no real specificity to me anymore. Because it now means Vanguard, Invesco, Ameriprise, Fidelity, The Hartford, AllState, and on and on are no longer just brokerages, let alone fund products, but are now in the hedge space. Not to mention REITs/MLPs/BDCs like CBRE, InlandWestern, CNL, KKR, etc are all now in the HF space too.

I remember fifteen years ago when SMAs and Alts were something new at the AMs and an almost tectonic shift sized change. And that was before the AMs (and brokerages) had their own SMA products in Alts/PE/Structured credit, etc. Blackrock, Blackstone, KKR, et all were always in the structured fixed income and RE space with their BDCs/REITs/PE Alts. I guess it's just an age thing of looking back on how things used to be vs where it is now.

Don't get me wrong, I know why they launched the SMA products (to skirt the accredited investor regulations).
