The legend of bond investing god Jeff Gundlach continues to grow.
After making a name for himself by accurately predicting the trajectory of interest rates, Gundlach also made successful calls on natural gas, Japanese stocks, and Apple.

All of the public success has caused his assets under management to balloon to around $60 billion.
