TCW's Bryan Whalen, Tad Rivelle to Discuss TCW Total Return Bond Fund on Conference Call

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - January 11, 2011) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, January 12 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 "More Tailwind for MBS? 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 housing market and the markets for mortgage-backed securities. Mr. Rivelle will discuss the outlook for the U.S. economy and other macro-economic issues.

"The foreclosure controversy has drawn plenty of attention over the last quarter, yet we think the difficulties related to documentation and robo-signing are already priced into the market," says Mr. Whalen. "While we maintain a positive outlook for both agency and non-agency MBS investments in 2011, achieving outperformance will likely depend on ferreting out the best cash flows from within the agency MBS space and diligently analyzing the existing and newly evolving risks in the non-agency space."

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