Larry Doyle has worked on and around Wall Street since the early 1980s. He has held senior trading, sales, and managerial roles at First Boston, Bear Stearns, UBS, Bank of America, and JP Morgan. He was president of Greenwich Investment Management which led to his launching DM Income Advisors, an investment advisory practice focused on generating a meaningful level of tax-exempt income. DM Income Advisors has a strategic partnership with an asset management firm uniquely positioned and qualified in the management of high-yield tax-exempt investments. While maintaining that practice, in August 2014 Larry began working with BERG Associates an international consulting firm focused on high level investigative and security related projects typically relating to financial crimes.
Larry’s first book In Bed with Wall Street: The Conspiracy Crippling Our Global Economy was published in January 2014 by Palgrave MacMillan. After publication, Larry has been widely engaged by many media outlets. His talk to launch his book in Washington DC was taped by CSPAN BookTV and has aired multiple times. Among his many talks, he has been invited to speak at the largest libraries in our nation, specifically The Boston Public Library, New York Public Library, and the Library of Congress. A former Assistant Inspector General of the Securities and Exchange Commission classified Larry as “an expert guide down the deep dark canyons of our financial crisis” and his book as “required reading in any honest attempt to understand how our financial system failed.”
Larry has been nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his writing In Bed with Wall Street, which in winter 2014 was recognized by the Project on Government Oversight as one of ten Books That Matter.
Larry embarked on his Wall Street career in 1983 as a mortgage-backed securities trader for The First Boston Corporation. While there he was involved in the growth and development of the secondary mortgage market from its near infancy.
After close to 7 years at First Boston, Larry joined Bear Stearns in early 1990 as a mortgage trader. In 1993, Larry was named a Senior Managing Director at the firm. He left Bear to join Union Bank of Switzerland in late 1996 as Head of Mortgage Trading. In 1998, after 15 years of trading and precipitated by Swiss Bank’s takeover of UBS, Larry moved from trading to sales as a senior salesperson at Bank of America. His move into sales led him to the role as National Sales Manager for Securitized Products at JP Morgan Chase in 2000. He was integrally involved in developing the department, directly hiring 40 salespeople, implementing a variety of sales programs, and growing revenues exponentially. He left JP Morgan in 2006.
Throughout his career, Larry eagerly engaged clients and colleagues. He has mentored dozens of junior colleagues, recruited at a number of colleges and universities, and interviewed hundreds. He has also had extensive public speaking experience. Additionally, Larry served as Chair of the Mortgage Trading Committee for the Public Securities Association (PSA) in the mid-90s.
While engaged in private enterprise, some not-for-profit work, and prior to becoming President of Greenwich Investment Management (2010-2011), in fall 2008 Larry was invited by the folks at NoQuarter to write on the economy, markets and global finance.
As a contributing writer at NoQuarter, Larry realized the scale provided by the internet allowed him to leverage his experience and insights from Wall Street to a much broader audience. In so doing, Larry was able to meld his professional experience with his personal interests to provide a service and product which he believes is in short supply and great demand.To that end, welcome to Sense on Cents.

“The country needs Wall Street. It needs a flow of capital and credit, but when politicians get paid off, you end up with a regulatory system that protects the industry rather than investors.”
“I’m just trying to help people understand what’s going on here,” he said. “If that’s critical of the industry, well, let’s put it this way, there’s been a lot to write about.”
