Maria “Masha” Gordon left PIMCO as head of the firm’s emerging markets to “pursue other interests,” said a PIMCO spokesman in an e-mail.
Virginie Maisonneuve, deputy chief investment officer and global head of equities at Pacific Investment Management Co., will assume Ms. Gordon’s responsibilities as portfolio manager of the firm’s emerging markets equity strategy.
Ms. Gordon first joined PIMCO in October 2010 as an executive vice president and an emerging markets equity portfolio manager in the firm’s London office.
PIMCO has $1.1 billion in assets under management in its emerging markets equity strategy.
