Primary Portfolio

Global opportunity set of fixed income securities (duration varies from 0 to 3 years)

Overview

Fund Overview

Generating income with low interest rate exposure

Designed for investors who need steady income with low interest rate exposure, the fund takes a broad-based approach to investing in income-generating bonds. It employs PIMCO’s vast analytical capabilities and sector expertise to help temper the risks of income investing.

Why Invest In This Fund

Pursues income across global fixed income sectors

The global economic landscape is constantly changing, causing different bond sectors to go in and out of favor. The fund’s multi-sector approach allows it to seek out the best income-generating ideas in any market climate, targeting multiple sources of income and low interest rate exposure from a global opportunity set.

Total return approach to generating income

While generating attractive current income is a primary goal, the fund also seeks long-term capital appreciation and compelling risk-adjusted returns with a low duration level. The fund also aims to preserve capital, maintain quality and lower interest rate risk.

Ability to be opportunistic

The fund can tactically shift portfolio weights, moving to wherever attractive yields can be generated with low interest rate sensitivity in an increasingly complex and volatile investment environment. This flexibility helps the fund to nimbly capture opportunities as economic and market conditions change.

Our Expertise

The fund is managed by Dan Ivascyn, Managing Director and Group CIO, Alfred Murata, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager, and Josh Anderson, Managing Director and Portfolio Manager. The team draws on PIMCO’s time-tested investment process: our rigorously developed global macro outlook, bottom-up credit analysis and research teams’ deep reservoir of specialized investment expertise.

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. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and may reduce the returns of a portfolio. High yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. 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. Commodities contain heightened risk, including market, political, regulatory and natural conditions, and may not be suitable for all investors. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. Investing in distressed companies (both debt and equity) is speculative and may be subject to greater levels of credit, issuer and liquidity risks, and the repayment of default obligations contains significant uncertainties; such companies may be engaged in restructurings or bankruptcy proceedings. 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. 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.
