There will also be "no difference" in the way money is managed now compared to when Gross was still at Pimco, group chief investment officer Dan Ivascyn told the cable television network."At least for the coming weeks and even the next couple of months, expect us to be very comfortable and only make incremental change across most client accounts," Ivascyn said.Bill Gross, the bond market's most renowned investor, quit Pimco for distant rival Janus Capital Group Inc last Friday, the day before he was expected to be fired from the huge investment firm he co-founded more than 40 years ago.
