A Discussion Between Industry Icons:
Larry Fink '76 and Bill Gross '71


Nearly 600 alumni and friends gathered on October 3 to hear two titans of the financial industry in conversation, Larry Fink ’76 , chairman and chief executive, BlackRock Inc. and Bill Gross ’71 founder and co-chief investment officer, PIMCO. The world's largest bond mutual fund manager and the world's largest asset manager were reunited for an evening of discussion on national, international and governmental issues in Beverly Hills. In addition to sharing their perspectives on global economic and financial markets, the two alumni focused their conversation on an emerging concern: a new workforce that may be ill prepared to respond to the needs of advancing technology and the demands of the global economy. The exclusive hour-long event, sponsored by UCLA Anderson, was moderated by CNBC's Brian Sullivan and was simultaneously viewed by alumni gatherings in New York and San Francisco.
