The DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® fund has two sources of return: an actively managed fixed income portfolio and a rules-based exposure to the U.S. stock market. DoubleLine's investment team actively invests in a diversified portfolio of bonds and floating rate loans. The fixed income portfolio collateralizes derivatives contracts tracking the Shiller Barclays CAPE US Sector Total Return Index (the Shiller Barclays index).
The Shiller Barclays index first identifies the five deepest-value sectors of the S&P 500 as measured by where each sector's common stock shares are collectively priced relative to their 10-year cyclically adjusted price-earnings (CAPE) ratios. Then the Shiller Barclays index implements a defense filter avoid value traps. A value trap is a security or asset appears cheap based on valuation metrics but is set to fall much lower in price. Of the five value sectors, the Shiller Barclays index removes the sector with the worst total return for the trailing 12 months. The Shiller Barclays index is constituted of equal 25% exposures to the four remaining value sectors. The Shiller Barclays index re-values the S&P 500 sectors and resconstitutes/rebalances at the end of each month.
DoubleLine Capital LP is Adviser to the fund. Jeffrey Gundlach, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of DoubleLine Capital, and Mr. Sherman are portfolio managers of the fund. Robert Shiller, Professor of Economics, Professor of Finance and Fellow at the International Center for Finance at Yale University, is co-creator of the Shiller Barclays CAPE US Sector Total Return Index.

Alpha - A measure of performance on a risk-adjusted basis. Alpha takes the volatility (price risk) of a mutual fund and compares its risk-adjusted performance to a benchmark index.
Beta - The measure of a mutual funds' volatility in relation to the market. By definitions, the market has a beta of 1.0, and individual mutual funds are raked according to how much they deviate from the market. A beta of above 1.0 means the fund swings more than the market. If the fund moves less than the market, the beta is less than 1.0.
Cyclically Adjusted Price-to-Earnings (CAPE) Ratio – A measure of the price of a company's stock relative to average earnings growth over the past 10 years.
Shiller Barclays CAPE US Sector Total Return Index – A stock market index that incorporates the principles of long-term investing distilled by Dr. Robert Shiller and expressed through the CAPE ratio.

Diversification does not assure a profit or protect against loss in a declining market.
The DoubleLine Shiller Enhanced CAPE® may invest in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets. In order to achieve its investment objectives, the Fund may use certain types of exchange traded funds or investment derivatives. Derivatives involve risks different from, and in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. ETF investments involve additional risks such as the market price trading at a discount to its net asset value, an active secondary trading market may not develop or be maintained, or trading may be halted by the exchange in which they trade, which may impact a fund's ability to sell its shares.
Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in Asset-Backed and Mortgage-Backed securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of including credit risk, prepayment risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increase susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. The Fund may also invest in securities related to real estate, which may decline in value as a result of factors affecting the real estate industry.
Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. The fund may make short sales of securities, which involves the risk that losses may exceed the original amount invested.
The Adviser's investment process may take into account a number of factors. These factors may include, among others, standard of living convergence, consumer deleveraging, private sector debt transference and demographic shifts, position in the business cycle, sector returns, relative growth, monetary and fiscal policy, risk integration, market sentiment, behavioral analysis, relative value, market technicals, and government and /or regulatory intervention.
