Equity Portfolio Managers Husam Nazer and Brendt Stallings Join DoubleLine

DoubleLine Capital LP launches DoubleLine Equity LP

LOS ANGELES, Jan. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DoubleLine Capital LP is pleased to welcome Brendt Stallings and Husam Nazer as the firm expands its product line-up into equity investment strategies. Stallings and Nazer join as portfolio managers and partners in DoubleLine Equity LP, a newly created affiliate of DoubleLine.

Stallings and Nazer were previously Group Managing Directors at TCW, the highest title for investment managers at the firm. There they managed $5 billion invested in common stocks in several successful strategies, which were both broadly invested and sector-focused.

DoubleLine CEO Jeffrey Gundlach, who previously served as Chief Investment Officer of TCW and headed that firm's largest investment group, launched DoubleLine in December 2009 with more than 40 of his former colleagues. Today DoubleLine employs more than 80 people, is majority-owned by its employees and manages more than $53 billion in asset allocation, bond and now stock strategies.

"In my 24 years at TCW," Gundlach said, "I knew well the firm's many equity groups and styles; Brendt and Husam stood out as the most talented and versatile of those investment teams. During several years of the most treacherous markets in generations, working with me as Chief Investment Officer, they delivered returns of over 40% against a flat result for the S&P 500. Importantly, their investment philosophy and process are consistent with and complement those already in place at DoubleLine. I will continue to explore other complementary partnerships and acquisitions to diversify our business and serve our clients."

DoubleLine Equity is managing portfolios seeded by a DoubleLine affiliate as well as by Stallings and Nazer. The two portfolio managers expect to hire at least five investment professionals this year.

"Husam and I are enthusiastic about teaming up with DoubleLine to launch DoubleLine Equity," Stallings said. "We know the DoubleLine team well, having worked with Jeffrey and many of his team for 13 years. With its entrepreneurial culture, employee ownership and investment acumen, we can think of no better partner than DoubleLine."

Nazer said he and Stallings "will immediately begin building out the dedicated research team that our strategies demand."

"The timing could not be better to launch a new equity investment platform," Nazer continued. "Equities have been disfavored relative to other asset classes for many years. It is for exactly this reason we and DoubleLine believe this is an opportune moment to launch DoubleLine Equity."

Brendt Stallings, 44, is an equities portfolio manager and partner in DoubleLine Equity LP. Previously at TCW, Stallings was a Group Managing Director, Senior Portfolio Manager of the TCW Growth Equities Strategy, co-portfolio manager of the TCW Global Technology Strategy and co-head of the TCW Small- and Mid-Cap Growth Equities team. He received a BA in Decision Analysis and Political Science from Stanford University and an MBA from the Amos Tuck School at Dartmouth College. He is a CFA charter holder.

Husam Nazer, 41, is an equities portfolio manager and partner in DoubleLine Equity LP. Previously at TCW, Nazer was a Group Managing Director, Senior Portfolio Manager of the Small-Cap Growth and SMID-Cap Growth strategies, co-portfolio manager of the TCW Global Technology Strategy and co-head of the TCW Small- and Mid-Cap Growth Equities team. Nazer received a BS in Biomedical Engineering from Boston University and an MBA at the University of Southern California.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet.

So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon.

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Unsecured IoT devices were used to launch crippling DDOS attacks in October 2016, targeting services such as Twitter, Spotify, and GitHub. Subsequent testimony to Congress about potential attacks on office buildings, schools, and hospitals raised the possibility for the IoT to harm and even kill people. What should be done? Does the government need to intervene? This panel at @ThingExpo New York brings together leading IoT and security experts to discuss this very serious topic.
