TCW Files for New Active Fixed Income ETFs and ETF Conversions

The TCW Group, a leading global asset management firm, filed an initial registration statement in connection with two new active fixed income exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and the conversion of four active fixed income funds to ETFs.

“We are excited to come to market with our first TCW branded fixed income ETFs, which is a natural extension of our distinguished fixed income business and existing ETF platform,” said Jennifer Grancio, Global Head of Distribution at TCW. “We look forward to continuing to provide our clients, including institutions, advisors, personal investors, and more with compelling investment strategies and vehicles to help them achieve their savings and income goals.”

The initial registration statement concerns two new active fixed income ETFs:

  • TCW Multisector Credit Income ETF

The initial registration statement also concerns four new active fixed income ETFs, into which existing mutual funds advised by affiliates of TCW Group will convert:

  • MetWest Flexible Income Fund, converting to TCW Flexible Income ETF
  • MetWest Floating Rate Income Fund, converting to TCW Senior Loan ETF
  • MetWest Investment Grade Credit Fund, converting to TCW Investment Grade ETF
  • TCW High Yield Bond Fund, converting to TCW High Yield Bond ETF

Shareholders of the mutual funds noted above will receive a prospectus/information statement concerning the conversions. Shareholders should read the combined prospectus/information statement, which will contain important information about the proposed conversions, when it becomes available. The conversions do not require shareholder approval.

Following their registration with the Securities and Exchange Commission, the ETFs will join TCW’s existing ETF offerings, which includes the TCW Transform Systems ETF (Ticker: NETZ), the TCW Transform Supply Chain ETF (Ticker: SUPP), and the TCW Transform 500 ETF (Ticker: VOTE).

Investors should consider the investment objectives, risks, fees and expenses of the funds carefully. All investments involve risk, including the possible loss of principal. There is no guarantee that the investment objective of a Fund will be achieved. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Unlike mutual funds, ETFs may trade at a premium or discount to their NAV per share. Because ETF shares are traded in the secondary market, a broker may charge a commission to execute a transaction in the shares, and an investor may incur the cost of the spread between the price at which a dealer will buy shares and the price at which a dealer will sell shares.

Fixed income investments entail interest rate risk, the risk of issuer default, issuer credit risk, and price volatility risk. Funds investing in bonds can lose their value as interest rates rise and an investor can lose principal. The Fund’s investments denominated in foreign currencies will decline in value if the foreign currency declines in value relative to the U.S. dollar. Fund share prices and returns will fluctuate with market conditions, currencies, and the economic and political climates where the investments are made. MBS related to floating rate loans may exhibit greater price volatility than a fixed rate obligation of similar credit quality. The market for floating rate loans may be illiquid, making it difficult for the Fund to determine the true value of a loan, or to sell its interest in a failing loan promptly or at a profitable price. The collateral for secured loans may be insufficient to cover a default, and the Fund may have limited remedies when a borrower defaults. High-yield (unrated or rated below-investment grade) loans and bonds have greater credit risk and more volatility than debt instruments rated investment grade. The risk of loss is even greater for unsecured loans. The Fund’s use of leverage (borrowing) and derivatives may increase the volatility of the Fund’s returns. Although the floating rate loans are intended to provide creditors with protection against rising interest rates, some of the debt securities in which the Fund invests will be subject to interest rate risk and may decline in value when interest rates rise. Equity investments entail equity risk 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. The value of the Fund’s share price will fluctuate up or down based on the value of the portfolio holdings, which can be affected by these risks.

The ETFs are advised by TCW Investment Management Company LLC.
