PIMCO appoints new portfolio specialist
Monday, 19 March 2012 12:05pm

Former Morningstar senior research analyst John Valtwies has been appointed as a portfolio specialist in PIMCO's global wealth management team.

Valtwies will be communicating elements of the firm's fixed income investment strategies to adviser market clients, including planners, dealer groups and private banks.

"John's appointment is an exciting one and reflects our commitment to sharing our expertise with our adviser clients, particularly important during times of global economic uncertainty," said John Wilson, head of PIMCO Australia.

"We've seen our wealth management business going from strength to strength, with monthly inflows 10 times larger than pre-global financial crisis levels."

At Morningstar Valtwies provided analysis and investment advice to large financial institutions, investment committees, dealer groups and advisers on asset allocation, portfolio construction, investment manager selection and approved product list management.

He also worked at Skandia, London firm Close Wealth Management, and Goldman Sachs.

In Australia PIMCO manages more than $30 billion across fixed income funds and strategies for large super funds, self managed super funds, institutional and individual investors.
