    Dick Fuld Ready To Hit The Party Circuit Again

    Steve Cohen Attends Party, Dresses Like A ‘Schlub': Bloomberg

    Something you probably know about Steve Cohen is that the last number of years have not been so kind to him. Almost a dozen of his employees have been charged with and convicted of securities fraud. The government won’t let him manage outside money. He had to rename his fund, rendering a warehouse full of […]

    Steve Cohen Had No Choice But To Throw A Huge Party Two Days After His Firm Was Indicted

    Maybe you would have let thousands of dollars worth of tuna go to waste, but not this animal lover. That and the draconian cancellation policy of one East Hampton fishmonger, plus Damien Hirst’s inability to fly in and turn a potential ecological and financial disaster into a diamond-encrusted and/or Plexiglass-encased masterpiece meant the show had […]

    Jeffrey Gundlach Had A Little Party Last Night

    December 7, 1941. November 22, 1963. December 4, 2009. All dates of such historical and cultural significance that if you asked someone where they were that day, they’d surely be able to tell you. Because they weren’t just any old days; they were moments when everything changed. The bombing of Pearl Harbor; the assassination of JFK; and, perhaps most importantly, the firing of Jeffrey Gundlach from the TWC Group, which had taken issue with his decision to start his own firm, and choose to express that anger by first escorting him out of the building and second raiding his offices, where they found an amount of adult films and sexual devices that suggested Gundlach was operating an online wholesale sex shop distributor and keeping the inventory at work. TCW also sued its former employee and at the time, rather than roll over and take it which is something he would never do, Gundlach vowed to fight back and clear up the misconception that TCW was the victim in the situation. On the contrary, JG told people, the real victim was US taxpayers who were “promised” Gundlach’s services and had to settled for a subpar bond manager when his relationship with the firm was terminated. Gundlach ultimately emerged victorious* and perhaps even more satisfying to The Pope was the number of TCW employees and clients who followed him en masse to his new company, the aptly named DoubleLine Capital. We’re not sure how you celebrated last night’s hugely significant anniversary, but we do know how Gundlach did:
