A Word About Risk

Fund share prices and returns will fluctuate with market conditions, currencies, and the economic and political climates where the investments are made. Emerging Market securities carry special risks, such as less developed or less efficient trading markets, a lack of company information, and differing auditing and legal standards. The securities markets of emerging markets countries can be extremely volatile. The TCW International Small Cap Fund carries the potential for foreign currency risk - the risk that the value of the Fund’s investments denominated in foreign currencies will decline in value because the foreign currency has declined in value relative to the US dollar. Equity investments entail equity and price volatility risk. The value of stocks and other equity securities will change based on changes in a company's financial condition and in overall market and economic conditions. Funds investing in mid and small cap companies involve special risks including higher volatility and lower liquidity.
