DoubleLine’s Baha Dies in Automobile Accident, Reuters Says

Bonnie Baha, head of global developed credit at DoubleLine Capital LP, died after an automobile accident over the weekend, Reuters reported Sunday, citing the investment firm.

Baha helped Los Angeles-based DoubleLine become one of the fastest-growing asset management firms in the U.S., the news agency reported. Her team managed the firm’s investments in fixed and floating-rate corporate and sovereign securities issued within developed market economies, Reuters said.

“For a quarter century Bonnie was my trusted colleague and dear friend,” Reuters cited Jeffrey Gundlach, chief executive of the $100 billion investment firm, as saying. “She was honest and direct, with a sardonic wit perfectly matching her investment skepticism helping shape the DoubleLine philosophy.”

Prior to DoubleLine, Baha was a managing director and portfolio manager overseeing the corporate bond investments at TCW Group Inc. for 19 years, where she worked closely with Gundlach, Reuters said.

A call to DoubleLine’s office outside business hours went unanswered and an e-mail was not returned.
