PIMCO, a leading global investment management firm, announces that it has hired Danielle Luk as Executive Vice President and Portfolio Manager and Tiffany Wilding as Senior Vice President and U.S. Economist. Both will be based in PIMCO’s Newport Beach office.
Luk, who joins PIMCO from Credit Suisse where she traded options, will focus on interest rate derivatives and will report to Josh Thimons, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager. Wilding, who previously worked at Tudor Investment as the Director of Global Interest Rate Research, will report to Joachim Fels, Managing Director and PIMCO’s Global Economic Advisor.
Dan Ivascyn, Managing Director and Group Chief Investment Officer, said: “Danielle is an exceptionally talented investor who will help develop and execute the firm’s best ideas and solutions for our clients.”
Wilding will contribute to the firm’s investment process and macro analysis by focusing on the world’s largest economy. Among her many duties, she will be a contributor to PIMCO’s Cyclical Forums, which are held three times a year and co-led by Fels.
“Tiffany is incredibly talented and we’re very pleased that she’ll be joining our macro analysis team as a U.S. economist,” said Fels. “Her addition will strengthen and bring greater depth to our global forecasting efforts at a time of acute economic uncertainty, especially in the developed world,” he added. Ivascyn added that “Danielle and Tiffany are examples of the top industry talent we continue to add to our global team of investment professionals. So far in 2016, PIMCO has hired more than 140 new employees around the world, in a broad range of areas from portfolio management to business development.”
