Bill Gross Wants To Be Buried At His Desk

The word "retirement" does not compute.

Bill Gross is well over the average retirement age, is eligible to collect social security, and is worth approximately $2 billion. But there's only one things that makes him tick, and that's his obsession with beating his former employer, which necessitates going into work every day and never, ever letting this thing go.

Bill Gross says he’s satisfied with the performance of his Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund and plans to continue managing money for a long time. “To prove that you’ve still got it takes more than a year or two,” Gross said in an interview in Beverly Hills, California, with Bloomberg’s Erik Schatzker. “I’m satisfied with the results.” Gross manages about $2.5 billion, including $1.3 billion in his bond fund, more than half of which is his personal money. The fund has returned 1.6 percent since he assumed management in October 2014 after an acrimonious departure from Pimco.
