TAMPA, Fla., June 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- DoubleLine Funds (Luxembourg) UCITS has launched the DoubleLine Global Diversified Credit Sub-fund ("Global Diversified Credit"), the fourth Sub-fund distributed on the international platform of funds .

The objective of Global Diversified Credit is to maximize income and total return. The Sub-Fund actively invests in global fixed income sectors. Top-down and bottom-up investment approaches are integrated into the portfolio construction process and ongoing portfolio management.

Changes in the portfolio are made gradually over time with a long-term approach. Sector weights are based on economic outlook, credit fundamentals and relative value.
