William  Gross, founder and co-CIO of Pimco said: "Pimco Source Fixed Income ETFs will provide investors in Europe with broader access to PIMCO's time-tested investment process and the depth and breadth of the resources of our two firms.” Source CEO Ted Hood said: “The credit crunch proved that every fixed income portfolio needs a mix of skilled product engineering and experienced active management. Pimco is well positioned to provide an enhanced approach to both active and passive exposure.” ©2010 funds europe
