TCW's Sri-Kumar to Discuss What's Ahead for Global Economy

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Dec 13, 2011) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday, December 14 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 "Global Economy: Growing Risk or Increasing Opportunities?"

"I have been saying for some time that the banking system is the weak link in Europe that will eventually have a contagion effect on the U.S. economy," said Dr. Sri-Kumar. "I think Europe is already in a recession and there will be a sequence of countries being affected by developments there."

The adverse impact on the U.S. economy will be apparent from early 2012 onward, he believes. He also sees emerging markets being affected due to European banks cutting loans to those countries, thus causing growth there to slow as well.

"The key to a global turnaround is a fiscally healthy and growing Eurozone," said Dr. Sri-Kumar. "The adoption by EU leaders of a program involving debt reduction and faster money creation should be the green light for investors to look for before returning to European equity markets."

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).
