What the hell? You can't reduce an entire asset class down to prestige! Depends on the part within, your function, the bank's performance in that part, etc.


What do you mean prestige?

Do you mean will people think you are smart? wealthy? This is a very strange question.


Bill Gross is obviously a know-nothing POS. Nobody would ever look up to him. It's not like he became a billionaire or anything, or vaulted PIMCO into the top tier of AM. Please, some people even think that there was a time where PTTRX was the largest fund on the face of planet earth.

I break things internally before we roll them out so people don't break them externally, and find data problems. I also know the story behind every one of our ETF's performance quirks back to inception. Our PMs come to me when they need help.

Get a life. People like you disgust me.
