    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. But there, Joe Deane has passed his three-year mark at the firm and built up the staff. So, it's just a matter of feeling a little more confident in the process. It isn't really related. It's not that we're saying Bill Gross' exit is a positive for the fund; it's just that it doesn't have a big impact. The EqS funds, as Michael mentioned, [which are PIMCO's equity funds], are now run by Virginie Maisonneuve, and we think they're not very impacted. Our ratings didn't change. They were already Neutral. So, it wasn't like they were great before, but we don't think those are very impacted either. Glaser: Let's take a look at all of PIMCO , then: If we're having some of these downgrades, if they are seeing some outflows, are you worried that PIMCO has a chance of becoming weaker, that they're not going to be able to invest, given the smaller asset base? 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
