LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - October 20, 2010) - The TCW Group (TCW), an international asset-management firm, invites you to participate in a conference call covering the current foreclosure situation on Thursday, October 21 with Tad Rivelle, TCW's Chief Investment Officer for Fixed Income, and Bryan Whalen, co-head of the firm's Mortgage-Backed Securities division.

The title of Mr. Rivelle's and Mr. Whalen's presentation is "Update on the Foreclosure Controversy -- Separating News from Noise: Guidance to Investors." Mr. Whalen, a managing director at TCW, wrote recently on the firm's website,, that the controversy over "robo-signing" of foreclosure documents will likely have only limited impact on the non-agency mortgage-backed securities market.

"Despite all the noise and confusion surrounding the foreclosure process, we continue to have a positive outlook on residential MBS securities," said. Mr. Whalen. "We would like to distinguish some of the misrepresentations in coverage of the foreclosure mess from the underlying facts regarding housing, the foreclosure process and the MBS market."
