TCW's Bryan Whalen and Tad Rivelle to Discuss MBS Opportunities on Conference Call

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jul 12, 2011) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, July 13 with Bryan Whalen, portfolio manager of the TCW Total Return Bond Fund (TGLMX/TGMNX). Also joining the call will be Tad Rivelle, TCW's Chief Investment Officer for Fixed Income.

The title of Mr. Whalen's presentation is "Volatility Yields Opportunity: An Update on the TCW Total Return Bond Fund." 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. Rivelle will discuss the outlook for the U.S. economy and other macro-economic issues following the Fed's completion of its second round of quantitative easing.

"We started the second quarter with the Maiden Lane II portfolio sales. Coupled with negative economic numbers, more debate over a Greek debt settlement as well as the end of QE2, the market went into what we call a 'risk off' mode," says Mr. Whalen. "From a value standpoint, we actually think the period of price deterioration in the second quarter represented a great buying opportunity. Fundamentals remain strong and we look forward to a recovery over the long term."

Please dial in 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to register for the call.
