Oct. 13 (Bloomberg) — The Arkansas Teacher Retirement System has terminated Pacific Investment Management Co. as pensions across the country review allocations after Bill Gross’s departure.

“When we saw a disruption at Pimco, we thought it might be a good time to de-risk just by terminating Pimco versus pulling some from all managers,” said George Hopkins, executive director of the Little Rock pension.

Gross, 70, who co-founded the Newport Beach, California-based money manager more than four decades ago, left last month for Janus Capital Group Inc. after deputies threatened to quit and management debated his ouster.
