Seeks a high level of current income.
Credit selection is based on fundamental research focused on identifying what we believe are stable-to-improving credits and avoiding deteriorating credits.
DoubleLine believes preservation of capital is the key prerequisite to potential maximization of total return. Satisfaction of credit and valuation criteria comes before incremental yield of a prospective security.
In our opinion, total return is guided by the following principals:
Performance data quoted represents past performance; past performance does not guarantee future results. The investment return and principal value of an investment will fluctuate so that an investor's shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than the original cost. Current performance of the fund may be lower or higher than the performance quoted. Performance current to the most recent month-end may be obtained by calling (213) 633-8200 or by visiting www.doubleline.com.
The Floating Rate Fund imposes a 1.00% Redemption Fee on all share classes if shares are sold within 90 days of purchase. Performance data does not reflect the redemption fee. If it had, returns would be reduced.
The performance information shown assumes the reinvestment of all dividends and distributions. Returns of less than one year are not annualized. While the fund is no-load, management fees and other expenses still apply. Index returns reflect no deduction for fees, expenses or taxes. Please refer to the prospectus for further details.

Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities present a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated 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.
The fund may use leverage which may cause the effect of an increase or decrease in the value of the portfolio securities to be magnified and the Fund to be more volatile than if leverage was not used.
Derivatives involve special risks including correlation, counterparty, liquidity, operational, accounting and tax risks. These risks, in certain cases, may be greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments.
Investing in ETFs involves additional risks such as the market price of the shares may trade at a discount to its net asset value ("NAV"), 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.
