About Pacific Investment Management Co. (Pimco)


The Pacific Investment Management Company (PIMCO) was founded in 1971 to manage certain accounts for the Pacific Life Insurance Company. While PIMCO continues to operate autonomously, it was acquired by Allianz SE in 2000. In November 2016, Emmanuel Roman became the company’s new CEO, and Roman since went on to earn the Chicago Booth Distinguished Alumni Award in recognition of his professional achievements. PIMCO is headquartered in Newport Beach, California.


PIMCO offers a variety of asset management services, including investments, mutual funds, and its “Return Fund,” which is a bond-based mutual fund. PIMCO offers traditional internships for students looking to gain hands-on experience while building a professional network. Additionally, the company has full-time programs for undergraduates and master’s degree candidates that begin immediately after graduation. Professionals who are looking to start a career with PIMCO will find career opportunities in areas such as account analytics, portfolio management, digital marketing, and more.


PIMCO’s Purpose at PIMCO program is designed to support community volunteerism and nonprofit organizations. In 10 years since the program’s inception, it has grown to nearly 2,500 volunteers and over 14,000 hours of service to communities across the globe. Three sub-programs—PIMCO Gives, PIMCO Acts, and PIMCO Advocates—are the core components of Purpose at PIMCO. These three pillars help the company to usefully engage colleagues, as well as clients, and can be used as a tool to gain impact metrics.
