    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?
