Gross has finally ended his feud with Pimco, the investment management company he cofounded in 1971. In October 2015 he sued Pimco for wrongful dismissal; Pimco insisted he had resigned. They settled earlier this year, with Pimco paying $80 million, which Gross confirmed would be donated to charity.
