A question came up about the availability of this fund and I've been chatting with the TCW folks. The fund launched Tuesday, Dec. 1 but is available for purchase only by residents of New York and California. It is not yet known when, or if, it will become available to residents of other states. TCW's reason for the limited release is to help the fund develop a track record before making it more widely available. And no, I don't know of other funds that have chosen that option.
