Fund Overview

By focusing on ultra-short, high quality fixed income securities, PIMCO Global Short Maturity Fund (Canada) offers higher income potential than traditional cash investments, with modest additional risk.

Why Invest in This Fund?

High quality portfolio

An actively managed enhanced cash strategy that seeks to dynamically manage risk and liquidity, the fund invests in a wide range of short-dated securities such as U.S. Treasury and agency securities, investment grade credit and high quality structured credit.

Lower potential volatility

The fund’s ultra-short duration is more resistant to interest rate fluctuations than longer-term bonds, resulting in generally lower price volatility. The fund’s investment guidelines prohibit investing in high yield securities and limits exposure to other fixed income sectors, which may increase volatility in periods of financial stress.

Access to an experienced investment manager

PIMCO has been managing short-term strategies since 1986 and the fund is part of a suite of solutions that can meet a broad range of investor needs. We work with a variety of investors – including individuals, corporations, pension plans, foundations and universities – to create portfolios that best align with their investment objectives.

PIMCO investment philosophy and process

Founded on the principle of diversification, PIMCO believes no single strategy or position should dominate returns. The firm’s investment process utilizes both top-down and bottom-up approaches to selecting investments with the goal of combining perspectives from an economic, big-picture standpoint (top-down) and security level (bottom-up) in an effort to consistently add value over time within acceptable levels of portfolio risk. The investment management team evaluates the following:

Top-down strategies focus on duration, yield curve positioning, volatility and sector rotation. These strategies are driven by our secular outlook of the forces likely to influence the economy and financial markets over the next three to five years as well as our cyclical views over a six to nine month time horizon.

Bottom-up strategies drive our security selection process and facilitate the identification and analysis of undervalued securities. Here, we employ advanced proprietary analytics and expertise in all major fixed income sectors.

Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and low interest rate environments increase this risk. Reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Mortgage and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and their value may fluctuate in response to the market’s perception of issuer creditworthiness; while generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee there is no assurance that private guarantors will meet their obligations. Convertible securities may be called before intended, which may have an adverse effect on investment objectives. Entering into short sales includes the potential for loss of more money than the actual cost of the investment, and the risk that the third party to the short sale may fail to honor its contract terms, causing a loss to the portfolio. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and may reduce the returns of a portfolio. 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 most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may concentrate its assets in a smaller number of issuers than a diversified fund.
