Interview with fund manager Bill Gross; he and wife Sue pledged to give away their $2 billion fortune, and in only 2 years have made significant headway.
"Count Bill Gross among the world’s biggest philanthropists. The bond investor has already given away as much as $700 million and eventually will donate his remaining $2 billion fortune, a figure that’s 'staggering, even to me,' Gross said in an interview on Bloomberg Television.... Gross, 71, amassed his wealth as co-founder of Pacific Investment Management Co. and built his reputation as the “bond king” by generating years of industry-leading returns as manager of the Pimco Total Return Fund." -- Bloomberg.com
