Former PIMCO Leader to Join Leading Multi-Family Office

The CAPROCK Group, LLC. Is pleased to announce that John L. Hague will be joining the team to serve as a Managing Director and Chief Global Strategist. Mr. Hague will be based in Newport Beach, California and serve on the firm’s Investment Committee. Mr. Hague has over 35 years of experience in the investment business, with previous roles at Morgan Guaranty Trust Company, Salomon Brothers, and PIMCO.

In his new role with The CAPROCK Group, Mr. Hague will help to guide the effort of defining broad investment themes for the company, as well as assisting families with portfolio structure and wealth management advice.

CAPROCK Group Co-founder Bill Gilbert states, “John is a recognized leader in investment management. His extensive experience and knowledge of global markets will enhance our ability to provide the best solutions to fulfill the needs of our families. The CAPROCK Group is redefining wealth and investment management and John’s addition to the team further demonstrates our commitment to bringing meaningful solutions to the families we serve.” Hague adds, “We advise on the totality of a family’s wealth. I look forward to adding my experience to an organization that is really making a difference to the families they serve.”

Mr. Hague joined PIMCO in 1987 to specialize in portfolio management. At that time, the portfolio management group consisted of four people, led by Bill Gross, with assets under management approximating $4.5 billion. During his twenty-year tenure at PIMCO, John played a leading role in creating and growing new areas, including the company’s initial foray into global bond investing. He also played an important role in guiding the firm’s initial efforts in emerging markets, inflation protected securities, and alternative investments. While serving on both the firm’s Investment Committee and Executive Committee, John was one of five Generalist Portfolio Managers reporting directly to Bill Gross, where he managed approximately $30 billion AUM in 130 separate institutional accounts.

A New York native, John was educated in New York, Paris, Maine, London and California. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from Bowdoin College and spent his junior year at the London School of Economics.
