DoubleLine Strategic Commodity Fund Opens Today

Portfolio Manager Jeffrey Sherman to Hold September 29th Webcast on the Fund

Strategy Blends Long-Only and Long-Short Sources of Return

Aug 31, 2015, 09:00 ET from DoubleLine

LOS ANGELES, Aug. 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The DoubleLine Strategic Commodity Fund (the "Fund") opens today to investors in the open-end mutual fund's I shares (DBCMX) and N shares (DLCMX). The Fund will be managed by DoubleLine Commodity LP ("DoubleLine").

The Fund's objective is to seek long-term total return. The Fund seeks to generate returns through long exposures to one or more indices of commodities, and through long and short positions on individual commodities. The Fund expects to gain these exposures primarily through derivatives contracts, securities or other instruments that provide a return tied to a commodities index, a basket of commodities, individual commodities or a combination thereof.

The Fund implements DoubleLine's Strategic Commodity strategy, which provides two distinct return sources: a long-only strategic allocation to commodities and a long-short tactical allocation to individual commodities.

Mr. Sherman is a portfolio manager for derivative-based and multi-asset strategies at DoubleLine Capital LP ("DL Capital"). In managing the DoubleLine Strategic Commodity Fund on behalf of DoubleLine, he is supported by the analysts and traders in DoubleLine's Cross Asset team.

"The rationale for investing in commodities has several components," Mr. Sherman said. "A broad mix of commodities historically has shown low correlations to stocks, bonds and cash. So commodities can diversify a portfolio invested in traditional asset classes. In addition, commodities can serve as a hedge against unexpected inflation. Finally, incremental returns potentially can be obtained by exploiting the term structure of prices of individual commodities."
