LOS ANGELES, June 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- DoubleLine will hold a webcast 1:15 pm Pacific/4:15 pm Eastern on Tuesday June 25 to discuss the DoubleLine Floating Rate Fund (the "Fund") ahead of the opening of the Fund to the public on Monday July 1.
To register for the "DoubleLine Floating Rate Fund Launch" webcast, go to www.doublelinefunds.com.
The Fund is an open-end mutual fund that seeks to deliver a high level of income by investing in floating rate bank loans and other floating rate instruments. Launched on February 1, 2013 to DoubleLine clients and affiliated persons, the Fund will be opened to the public on July 1. The Fund will be offered in two no-load share classes: I shares DBFRX; N shares DLFRX.
Bank loans are corporate loans that have been structured and administered by a commercial or investment bank. Such loans are sold (or syndicated) to other banks and institutional investors, including open-end and closed-end mutual funds and collateralized loan obligations (CLOs). Bank loans typically pay interest based on a spread over the London Inter Bank Offered Rate (LIBOR). The DoubleLine Floating Rate Fund generally invests in senior secured bank loans.
Jeffrey Gundlach, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Investment Officer of DoubleLine, will discuss the importance of bank loans, also known as leveraged loans, as an asset class.
Portfolio managers Bonnie Baha, who heads Global Developed Credit at DoubleLine, and Robert Cohen will discuss the sector in further detail. Then they will discuss the Fund's investment approach, their process for credit research and selection, and the portfolio composition of the Fund. A question-and-answer session will follow the prepared presentation.

Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in floating rate securities include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, interest rate risk, possible illiquidity and default, as well as increased 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. 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 increased susceptibility to adverse economic developments. Investments in foreign securities may involve political, economic and currency risks, greater volatility 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 more 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 the fund's ability to sell its shares.
While the Fund is no-load, management and other expenses still apply. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.
