TCW's Bryan Whalen and Laird Landmann to Discuss MBS Opportunities on Conference Call

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 17, 2012) - The TCW Group, Inc. (TCW), a global asset manager, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, July 18 with Bryan Whalen, portfolio manager of the TCW Total Return Bond Fund (TGLMX/TGMNX), and Laird Landmann, generalist portfolio manager for TCW fixed income strategies.

Mr. Whalen, a managing director at TCW and co-head of the firm's Mortgage-Backed Securities division, will discuss recent trends in the markets for agency and non-agency mortgage backed securities. Mr. Landmann will discuss the outlook for the U.S. economy and other macro-economic issues affecting the U.S. housing market and mortgage bonds.

"Once the situation in Europe stabilizes, we believe the market will start to recognize the improving fundamentals of non-agency MBS," says Mr. Whalen. "Looking at delinquencies, severities, and recovery values from liquidations, all these factors are moving in the right direction."
