    couple of areas where we're going to be watching to see how PIMCO chooses to continue to build out resources, perhaps around Mark Kiesel, perhaps around Mihir Worah, perhaps around the fundamental-equities effort led by Virginie Maisonneuve. These are some of the areas where we're going to be looking for additional resources over the next year or two. Glaser: Were there any upgrades or any areas you think were less impacted by the move? Kinnel: We actually upgraded [TICKER:PFMIX] PIMCO Muni Bond. The muni group was pretty largely unaffected, though obviously the investment community does have some input on macro calls.

Is that something that concerns you? Herbst: Not today. And there are a couple of reasons for that. One reason is that PIMCO runs a very lean operation. So, their cost structure is actually more attractive than many other asset-management firms. The flip side of
