Bridwell had been head of mortgage strategies development at PIMCo, a role she will continue in. She has been with the firm since 2005.
"PIMCo has built over a number of years a large and very successful alternatives business that includes hedge funds and private strategies," Douglas Hodge, chief operating officer, said. "Jennifer's deep knowledge and experience in the alternatives space will enable us to marshal the full range of PIMCo's resources to develop and manage investment solutions that deliver value to our clients."
PIMCo has about $16 billion in alternative investment assets.
