A British-educated investor who quit his job as chief of the world’s biggest bond business has revealed he resigned after his 10-year old-daughter gave him a note citing 22 milestones in her life he had missed.

    Mohamed El-Erian left Pimco in January this year amid rumours of a fractious relationship with Bill Gross, the company’s founder. But now Mr El-Erian, who attended both Cambridge and Oxford, has admitted that personal reasons played a part in the decision after he realised he didn’t spend enough time with his daughter.

    Among the events the investor had missed were his 10-year-old daughter’s first day at school, her first football match of the season and a parent-teacher meeting.



I got home last night. My wife was going off to do an insemination; she'd be out until 10 or so. I had to blast the radio loud to stay awake in the car.

Still spent an hour and a half with my daughter doing a bath and reading Runaway Bunny before bed.
