Two investment pros told CNBC on Tuesday they are taking a wait-and-see approach when it comes to keeping clients' money in Pimco funds, just days after Bill Gross' unexpected exit sent shock waves through Wall Street.
"We're not taking a reactionary move; we're not trying to immediately get out of the fund. I definitely think it's on a watch list," Rich Coppa, managing director at Wealth Health, said in an interview with "Closing Bell. "
"We want to make sure that the management continuity exists. We want to make sure that we understand the flows that are outgoing and whether or not the liquidity is there for the fund."
Reaction was also swift in the Total Return exchange-traded fund, which saw a total of $546 million in . The ETF has $3.12 billion in assets, a fraction of the $222 billion Total Return Fund.
Coppa said he still has confidence in the Pimco management team.
"I don't think that one person has all the ins and outs of this fund or the company itself," he said.
David Mendels, director of planning at Creative Financial Concepts, said he wouldn't be surprised if he's out of Pimco by the end of October.
"Turmoil is never a good thing, and when you are investing with a fund manager you are hiring a jockey and the jockey's changed. So there is some uncertainly there," he told "Closing Bell."
That said, he's waiting to see how everything unfolds before deciding if he'll stay or go.
"Panic has always been overrated as an investment strategy," Mendels said. "Bill Gross is a smart guy, but he's not the only smart guy there."
