After being expelled from TCW in 2009, he and a group of his co-workers founded Doubleline Capital. He is the Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer at Doubleline and is widely recognized as the most knowledgeable investor currently working in relation to bonds and fixed income investments.

At the end of last week, Gundlach told Fox Business:

“Government funds are being sprinkled all over the place, if you want to call them, thanks to the government’s policy in this case, with people in check, that they have a real capital base To put together is whitish. In this case, there were 2.1 million people who somehow got organized on Reddit and managed to get $ 20bn to buy power, and they got a chance to stack these hedge funds. “

Gundlach said he too had no sympathy for the affected hedge funds. She was also a critic of the victorious attitude of the Reddit traders and led her to her husband in this David vs. Goliath fight.
