Gross, 71, co-founded Newport Beach, California-based Pacific Investment Management Co. in 1971, and helped build it into a $2 trillion money manager at its peak. He left last September to join Janus Capital Group Inc., where he now runs the $1.52 billion Janus Global Unconstrained Bond Fund.
The billionaire, known for his stamp collection, has a previous association with museums. The National Postal Museum’s William H. Gross Stamp Gallery, featuring rare collections and postal artifacts, opened in September 2013. At 12,000 square feet, it’s the world’s biggest of its kind.
