Seeks a high level of total return, with an emphasis on current income.
The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing in a portfolio of investments selected for its potential to provide a high level of total return, with an emphasis on current income. The Fund may invest in debt securities and other income-producing investments of issuers anywhere in the world, including in emerging markets, and may invest in investments of any credit quality
The Fund will actively allocate exposure across the global fixed income universe.
The portfolio construction begins with a top-down macro-economic assessment of global markets. Fundamental valuations and technical research are presented and discussed monthly at the Fixed Income Asset Allocation (FIAA) Committee meeting, where experienced portfolio managers discuss their respective sectors of expertise. The decision to overweight or underweight a sector is determined based on fundamentals and relative valuation. The sector managers are responsible for individual security selection to best reflect the Committee’s views.

Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. Shares of closed-end investment companies frequently trade at a discount to their net asset value, which may increase investors’ risk of loss. This risk may be greater for investors expecting to sell their shares in a relatively short period after the completion of the public offering. There are risks associated with an investment in the fund.
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. The source for the information in this report is DoubleLine Capital, which maintains its data on a trade date basis.
An investment in the fund involves certain risks arising from, among other things, the fund’s ability to invest without limit in debt securities that are at the time of investment rated below investment grade or unrated securities judged by DoubleLine to be of comparable quality (a category of investment that includes securities commonly referred to as “high yield” securities or “junk bonds”). High yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not.
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.
The fund invests in foreign securities which involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for investments in emerging markets.
