Man GLG chief strategist rejoins Pimco

chess pieces 410Jamil Baz has left hedge fund firm Man Group and rejoined Pimco as head of client analytics.

Baz was at Man GLG, a subsidiary of Man Group, for eight years as chief investment strategist. Prior to that he was an executive vice president at Pimco from 2007 to 2008, managing global portfolios and helping to develop the firm’s global multi-asset investment approach.

Pimco has invested heavily in its analytics capabilities, the firm says, because it sees the discipline as playing a more important role in asset allocation decisions, portfolio construction and risk management.

Baz, who joins Pimco on May 2, will report to Ravi Mattu, managing director, global head of analytics, and Mihir Worah, managing director and chief investment officer for asset allocation.

Pimco manages assets equivalent to €130 trillion.
