Objective

Seeks to maximize total return.

Philosophy

DoubleLine’s portfolio management team believes the most reliable way to enhance returns is to exploit inefficiencies within the subsectors of the mortgage market while maintaining active risk-management constraints.

Approach & Process

The Fund invests mainly in mortgage-backed securities actively allocating between Agency and non-Agency securities in an attempt to provide high income while maintaining a neutral duration scenario to diversify risks within the portfolio.

Robust investment approach employing a qualitative and quantitative approach:

Qualitative

Thorough analysis of market trends and in-depth research contribute to affirming subsector opportunities and assessing risk exposure.

Quantitative

Bottom-up security selection based on experience with proprietary prepayment methodology and “stress testing” scenarios across a range of interest rate movements.

Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible.

Sector allocations and fund holdings are subject to change at any time and should not be considered a recommendation to buy or sell any security. Portfolio holdings generally are made available 30 days after month-end by visiting www.doubleline.com.

Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities.

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

Investments in ABS and MBS include additional risks that investors should be aware of such as credit risk, prepayment 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.
