PIMCO Global Advisory Board
The PIMCO Global Advisory Board is a team of five world-renowned experts on economic and political issues.
The Board members contribute their insights to the firm on global economic, political and strategic developments and their relevance for financial markets. The members of the Board are Ben Bernanke (who serves as chairman), Gordon Brown, Ng Kok Song, Anne-Marie Slaughter and Jean-Claude Trichet.
The Board meets several times a year at PIMCO’s Newport Beach office as well as at other PIMCO offices around the world. The members also are attending for the first time the firm’s annual Secular Forum in May, where PIMCO’s investment professionals discuss the economic outlook and its implications for markets over the next three to five years. Board members will share their views, which along with presentations from distinguished guest speakers at the forum, will inform the discussions of PIMCO’s investment professionals. Together, the Board members’ expertise and insights are a valued input to the firm’s investment process.
