The Sherman Show host Jeffrey Sherman, deputy CIO of DoubleLine, again plays the role of guest with a visit to FEG Insight Bridge and host Greg Dowling, head of research and CIO at FEG, an institutional investment consultant and OCIO firm serving non-profits across the U.S. This episode begins with a discussion of Mr. Sherman’s podcast, including the decision to launch the show, how it boosts the profile of DoubleLine and Sam Lau’s role as the brains of The Sherman Show. Mr. Dowling then interviews Mr. Sherman on his background in math and as an educator, the importance of teaching STEM and Mr. Sherman’s transition into the finance world (5:31). “I was reading that these people on Wall Street made money,” says Mr. Sherman, who was thinking of going into academia. “They made a lot more than a professor did, and it took a lot shorter time.” The two also discuss the fixed income sector and yield’s return after a long absence (16:09), the Fed focus on fighting inflation (20:14), Mr. Sherman’s outlook on the possibility of recession (26:35) and why the Fed should step back on rate hikes (31:23).
Messrs. Dowling and Sherman also talk the status of consumer strength (36:00); the U.S., its dollar and the rest of the world (39:27); and why today’s inflationary environment has sparked retro ’80s (not ’70s!) comparisons (47:05).
