Tax managers have a very important job at investment management companies like PIMCO. They lead the tax function for the firm and manage tax issues across the global offices for various products (e.g. public funds), client accounts, and business operations. An undergraduate degree in accounting and the CPA (certified public accountant) designation can be great preparation for a career in tax. Investment management companies do not only have investment management jobs - they also have very important business functions like tax, accounting, legal, compliance, sales, technology, etc.!
