Investment Objective

Preservation of capital is the cornerstone of the Ultra Short investment philosophy. Satisfaction of credit fundamentals, through extensive bottom-up credit analysis, occurs prior to considering incremental yield. DoubleLine’s distinct macroeconomic view in combination with bottom-up fundamental credit analysis is instrumental in the portfolio construction process.

Mutual fund investing involves risk; Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt 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 increase 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. Investments in real estate securities may involve greater risk and volatility including greater exposure to economic downturns and changes in real estate values, rents, property taxes, interest rates, tax and other laws. A REIT’s share price may decline because of adverse developments affecting the real estate industry.
