LOS ANGELES, April 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- DoubleLine Capital LP announced today that assets under management invested in the separate accounts, mutual funds and other portfolios managed by the firm now exceed $10 billion.
"DoubleLine has reached the $10 billion milestone in less than 18 months of existence," said Jeffrey Gundlach, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of DoubleLine Capital. "Clearly, we could not have come so far so soon without the grassroots support of investors and their advisors. Today, more than 100,000 investors have placed their trust in DoubleLine. To them and their advisors, I pledge that our team will remain singularly focused on risk management and client service."
Founded December 14, 2009, DoubleLine has developed investment strategies and strategy extensions designed to fit different investor profiles along the risk-return curve. The DoubleLine teams manage portfolios invested in mortgage-backed securities, corporate fixed income securities, emerging markets debt, U.S. government and other sovereign issues as well as asset allocation strategies across different bond sectors, equities and commodities. The one-year period ended April 25, 2011, the DoubleLine Total Return Bond Fund (DLTNX/DBLTX), the flagship of DoubleLine's four mutual funds, is the top-ranked fund of the 1,190 Intermediate-Term Bond Funds as categorized by Morningstar.
DoubleLine's mutual fund complex, now with more than $6 billion in AUM, has been the largest destination of investment inflows at the firm. Philip Barach, President and cofounder of DoubleLine Capital, said he expects accelerated demand from institutional clients, resulting in increased growth in the firm's separately managed accounts and other vehicles, later in the year.
"Our investment teams have the capacity and experience to manage substantially larger pools of assets," Barach said. "However, our highest-priority objective is the delivery of superior risk-adjusted returns to our valued clients."

Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities.
