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

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 17, 2012) - The TCW Group, Inc. (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, January 18 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.

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 affecting the U.S. housing market and mortgage bonds.

"The non-agency market experienced growing pains in the last few months of 2011 as the fear and risk-off mentality stemming from the Euro zone crisis punished a credit market still in its infancy," says Mr. Whalen. "We believe patience will be rewarded as unwarranted fear leaves this market coiled for a recovery."

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