Jeffrey Sherman: 2 Wild Cards That Could Derail the Economy – ThinkAdvisor Oct. 2021
Posted: Wednesday, November 3, 2021

“Investors need to be worried about inflation.

The lead portfolio manager for multi-sector and derivative-based strategies at DoubleLine, of which Jeffrey Gundlach is CEO, Sherman forecasts inflation next year at about 3.5%.
