Macquarie vs Pimco, On Ice!

Reported by Neil Anderson, Managing Editor

Last week fundsters from big U.S. shops on opposite coasts competed to raise money to support veterans. And they did it wearing skates!

On November 4 (one week before Veterans Day in the U.S. and Remembrance Day in Canada), staff from Philadelphia-based Macquarie Investment Management [profile] and Newport Beach, California-based Pimco [profile] converged on Honda Center in Anaheim, California to play an exhibition hockey game, confirms Brett Wright, co-head of the client group at Macquarie IM. Together with the Anaheim Ducks Foundation, the Macquarie Group Foundation and Pimco Veterans raised more than $100,000 for three charities — the Orange County Community Foundation's Veterans Initiative, the Travis Manion Foundation, and the United Heroes League — that support veterans in the U.S. and Canada.

"I can't think of a better way to show our deep gratitude to this country and our great neighbor to the North than by supporting those who have served their countries so nobly," Wright states.

Nine Macquarie employees and 13 Pimco employees played in the game (which included five NHL alumni: Bryan Allen, Adam Hall, Kent Huskins, James Marshall, and Sean Pronger, and "talks have already begun for a rematch!" a spokeswoman for Macquarie tells MFWire.

"The final score was 6-5 in a shootout!" the spokeswoman says. "PIMCO tied the game in the last minute of play. And then won in a shootout!"
