I give this 18 months:
Mohamed El-Erian has been chosen to run the $25.9 billion Harvard Management Co., according to The Boston Globe. El-Erian is an emerging markets bond manager for Pacific Investment Management Co. (Pimco), and previously spent 15 years with the International Monetary Fund. He replaces Jack Meyer, who left earlier this year to launch his own investment management company. Harvard reportedly first offered the job to Mark Nunnelly of Bain Capital, but was turned down.
After all, remember what just happened at Harvard Endowment.
