DoubleLine Capital, the bond management firm run by Jeffrey Gundlach, said on Monday it had hired an executive from rival Pimco to run a new unit focused on developing new investment products and lines of business, particularly outside the United States. DoubleLine named Ignacio Sosa, previously Pimco’s executive vice president for global bond product management, director of its newly formed Product Solutions Group. He starts on May 12 and will report to Gundlach. Sosa’s departure comes after a management shakeup and months of investor outflows at Newport Beach, California-based Pimco. [Reuters, related]

You Wanna Play Hardball? Jeffrey Gundlach’s Game

A couple weeks back, bond manager, art collector, and porn buff Jeffrey Gundlach had $10 million worth of goods taken him from his home. The loot definitely included pieces by artists Guy Rose (“The Cathedral Tours”) and Joseph Cornell (“Medici Boy”) and possibly included works by C.

Unfortunately, it appears that no leads have popped up and Gundlach has been forced to turn to Plan B: Read more »

As you may have heard, at some point last week, bond manager Jeffrey Gundlach was robbed. Thieves took $10 million worth of stuff from the Doubleline founder’s Santa Monica pad, including a couple of paintings, a few watches, some high-priced wine, a 2010 Porsche Carrera 4S, and whatever cash was lying around. While it’s unclear if the burglars made away with Gundlach’s collection of priceless pornographic films and sexual apparatus; if he was targeted specifically because the thieves knew they could get their hands on the original copy of Dr. Fellatio 16; or if they were tipped off by JG’s regular pizza delivery guy, cable repairman, or pool boy, what is clear that Gundlach is pissed, pissed like a man who is no longer in possession of Ass Traffic Volume 2: The Director’s Cut.  And that’s where you come in.

He showed up for his first day on the job having “mastered the math in Sidney Homer and Martin Leibowitz’s Inside the Yield Book” which, he says, “Very few people can do. Like, very few. I quickly realized I knew more than most people who worked at TCW for years.” [BW]
