Scott Simon has thirty years of experience investing in mortgage backed securities. During his tenure at PIMCO from 2000 to 2013, he was a Managing Director and Head of Mortgage and Asset-Backed Securities Portfolio Management, a rotating member of the firm’s Investment Committee and co-head of the firm’s Private Equity style funds. Scott spearheaded PIMCO’s research and views on residential real estate starting in 2005, positioning the firm’s accounts for outperformance through the extreme housing and MBS volatility that followed.
Prior to joining PIMCO, Scott was the Co-Head of MBS Trading at Bear Stearns from 1995-1999 and Head of MBS Trading at UBS from 1989-1995. Scott spent 1984 to 1989 as a mortgage and arbitrage trader at Lehman Brothers and Goldman Sachs. Though his role was always as a trader, he was voted onto the Institutional Investor All-America Fixed Income Research Team seven times, including first place awards for mortgage strategies and Mortgage Backed Securities.
Mr. Simon attended Stanford University where he earned a Master’s Degree in Industrial Engineering and a self-designed Bachelor’s Degree.
