TCW's Tom McKissick to Discuss Portfolio Balance in Turbulent Times

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - February 24, 2009) - The TCW Group, Inc. invites you to participate in a conference call on Wednesday with Tom McKissick, Co-Portfolio Manager of the TCW Focused Equities Fund (NASDAQ: TGFFX).

Mr. McKissick will discuss his views on navigating the stock market through rapidly changing economic conditions. "One of the defining market events of 2008 was the sudden change from an inflationary environment to a deflationary environment," Mr. McKissick said.

"As Washington embarks on massive borrowing and deficit spending, it is possible the pendulum will swing back in the other direction, to inflation," he added. "We seek to build a portfolio that is balanced so that it can transition from inflation to deflation and participate in both market environments."

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

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