There are some famous names that come to mind when we think of the super wealthy. Elon Musk, Bill Gates, and Warren Buffet are just a few examples. But there is someone who has more than doubled a global trillion-dollar fund whose name you may not be as familiar with — Mohamed El-Erian. Once you read more about this brilliant economist, you won’t forget him…
After growing up between New York and Egypt, Mohamed El-Erian went on to get his Master’s and Doctorate degrees from Oxford University.
In 1998, he moved into the private investments sector with a position at the prestigious Salomon-Smith Barney Group. Mohamed worked in their London office. However, he was recruited from there by PIMCO, specializing in emerging markets.
El-Erian took a step back from PIMCO in 2001 and worked for Harvard in various capacities. Notably, he was part of the faculty at Harvard Business School and a member of the Harvard Global Advisory Council.
However, it was when he returned to PIMCO in 2007 that the real magic happened…
Why Not Double an Almost Trillion-Dollar Fund?
When Mohamed El-Erian returned as CEO and co-CIO to PIMCO, the fund was already highly prosperous…
You could say that $1 trillion worth of assets under their management is successful by anyone’s standards.
Nonetheless, the Egyptian-American economist saw opportunities for investment performance to improve.
With his investment management, global strategies, and policies, EL-ERIAN nurtured the NEARLY trillion-dollar fund into $2 trillion.
On January 20, 2014 he resigned, citing that he wished to spend more time with his family after receiving a heartfelt letter from his daughter.
Besides the amount of money, the acumen it takes to oversee it all is staggering.
And Grant will be picking his brain at the upcoming 10X Business Summit.
