New York — This coming Monday, November 21st at 10pm ET/ 7pm PT, Bloomberg Television, in partnership with the UCLA Anderson School of Management, will present “Gross | Fink: Heavy Hitters,” an exclusive market-moving conversation between PIMCO founder and co-CIO Bill Gross and Larry Fink, Chairman and CEO of BlackRock Inc., who collectively manage $4.7 trillion in assets and are graduates of UCLA Anderson. The one-hour special, moderated by anchor Erik Schatzker, can be seen globally on Bloomberg Television, Bloomberg.com and the Bloomberg TV+ app for iPad.
Bill Gross, who runs the world’s biggest bond mutual fund at Pacific Investment Management Co., has frequently discussed today’s “new normal” – described as an era of slowing economic growth in developed markets, higher unemployment and a rise in emerging markets. Larry Fink, who co-founded BlackRock in 1988 and has built the company through acquisitions, recently told Bloomberg that clients are “confused” and fleeing risky assets due to government policies. Under Fink, BlackRock advised the Federal Reserve during the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis and more recently has advised the governments of Greece and Ireland on how to navigate the sovereign debt crisis in Europe.
“Gross | Fink: Heavy Hitters” will bring together the two most influential money managers, to provide their candid take on the U.S. economy, the European fiscal crisis, Occupy Wall Street and their thoughts on investing strategy. Meeting at UCLA Anderson in a special celebration of the institution’s 75th Anniversary, both titans are alumni of the school, having graduated five years apart.
The special will repeat on Thursday, November 24th at 12pm ET and 10pm ET; Friday, November 25th at 3pm ET and 11pm ET and Saturday, November 26th at 6 pm ET and 11 pm ET.
