TCW's Rohit Sah to Discuss Opportunities in International Small Cap Stocks on Conference Call

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) -   The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, March 23 with Rohit Sah, portfolio manager of the newly launched TCW International Small Cap Fund (NASDAQ: TGICX) (NASDAQ: TGNIX).

Mr. Sah joined TCW in February from OppenheimerFunds, where he managed the Oppenheimer International Small Company Fund from 2004 to 2011. He was nominated for Morningstar's International Stock Manager of the Year Award* in 2010 and has also been named to Barron's annual rankings of "Top 100 Managers" four times. 

"To be a successful investor in international small companies requires solid fundamental research," says Mr. Sah. "I'm excited to be a part of TCW, which devotes significant resources to such research."

The TCW International Small Cap Fund, which opened February 28, invests in small-cap companies located outside of the United States. It generally targets companies with market capitalizations of $6 billion or less at the time of purchase across both developed and emerging markets.

"International small caps are one of the most exciting equity asset classes," says Mr. Sah. "But they are not a well covered part of the equity market and this presents opportunities for investors who can get to know these companies."

A Word About Risk
Stock Funds have the same equity and price volatility risks associated with the underlying stocks in the portfolio, all of which could reduce the Funds' value. Funds investing in mid and small cap companies involve special risks including higher volatility and lower liquidity. As stock prices fluctuate, the value of the Funds can decline and an investor can lose principal. Share prices and returns in Funds that invest a substantial portfolio of their assets in non-US securities will fluctuate with market conditions, currencies, and the economic and political climates where the investments are made. Emerging markets securities carry special risks, such as less developed or less efficient trading markets, a lack of company information, and differing auditing and legal standards. The securities markets of emerging markets countries can be extremely volatile.
