Bill Gross’ new employer thinks he’s Peyton Manning.
A profile of Bill Gross’ new employer — Janus Capital — from Bloomberg’s Mary Childs finds the Colorado-based investment manager comparing Gross that state’s favourite athlete: Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning.
“Bill Gross is our Peyton Manning, that game-changing level of talent for us,” Janus CEO Richard Weil told Childs. “People are looking at us.”
And this latest report from Childs comes after her must-read profile of Gross’ last days at PIMCO published earlier this month, which revealed the tensions brewing between Gross and his PIMCO colleagues.
