TCW's Sri-Kumar to Discuss Global Portfolio Positioning for 2012

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, February 1 with Komal Sri-Kumar, TCW's Chief Global Strategist and Portfolio Manager of the TCW Global Allocation Funds.

The title of Dr. Sri-Kumar's presentation is "How To Position Your Global Portfolio."

"Despite recent positive developments, I believe that the combination of a European recession, and deterioration in the Europe debt situation will continue to push the euro and yields in the haven countries of Germany, the U.S. and the U.K. lower," said Dr. Sri-Kumar. "As recession concerns mount and have their impact on developed country equities, emerging market equities may provide better value than their developed market counterparts."

Dr. Sri-Kumar is chairman of the TCW Comprehensive Asset Allocation Committee and is Portfolio Manager of TCW's three risk-targeted global asset allocation mutual funds: the TCW Global Conservative Allocation Fund (TGPCX/TGPNX), the TCW Global Moderate Allocation Fund (TGPMX/TGPOX), and the TCW Global Flexible Allocation Fund (TGPBX/TGPLX). Please dial in 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to register for the call.

Time: 1:15 p.m. Pacific Time / 4:15 p.m. Eastern Time

The investment performance of an allocation fund is affected by the investment performance of the underlying funds in which the allocation fund invests. The ability of the allocation fund to achieve its investment objective depends on the ability of the underlying funds to meet their investment objectives and on the investment adviser's decisions regarding the allocation of the allocation fund's assets among the underlying funds. There can be no assurance that the investment objective of the allocation fund or any underlying fund will be achieved. Through its investments in the underlying funds, the allocation fund is subject to the risks of the underlying funds investments.

Equity investments entail equity risk and price volatility risk. The value of stocks and other equity securities will change based on changes in a company's financial condition and in overall market and economic conditions.
