Over a year ago, the asset management world got a wake-up call from Pacific Investment Management. Pimco, as the company is known, announced it would roll out the Pimco Total Return ETF to complement its flagship fund.
Those of us who follow investment product trends all perked up. See “The Other Side of Active ETFs" for my take at the time.
I recently followed up at The Wall Street Journal with Pimco COO Douglas Hodge, as the company takes a victory lap on the Total Return ETF and re-ups with other notable funds.
Over the past few months, I’ve spent a lot of time gauging the macro effects of Pimco’s move and will write more on ETFolution at Forbes.com. In the meantime, I’m going to start gathering some links here on my coverage (and others) on Pimco and active exchange-traded funds:
