DoubleLine Names Cohen to Replace Developed Credit Head Baha

  • Baha was killed in Virginia traffic accident in August
  • Developed credit team has 20 managers, analysts and traders

DoubleLine Capital promoted Robert Cohen to director of the firm’s global developed credit team, replacing Bonnie Baha, who was killed in a traffic accident last month.

“One of Bonnie’s many achievements was to bring together people with the qualities of team leadership and investment experience to carry on after her,” Jeffrey Gundlach, chief executive officer of DoubleLine, which oversees $102 billion, said in a statement Tuesday.

The team has 20 portfolio managers, analysts and traders who invest in corporate and sovereign debt in developed countries. Cohen was also named as a manager of the DoubleLine Income Solutions Fund, a $2.1 billion closed-end fund that invests mostly in corporate debt, according to a securities filing.

Cohen joined Los Angeles-based DoubleLine in 2012 after working at West Gate Horizons Advisors, Union Bank and Bank of Montreal. He earned an MBA from the University of Southern California and a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of Arizona.

Baha, 56, was killed Aug. 21 when she was struck by a vehicle while crossing a street in Charlottesville, Virginia.
