Overview

Fund Overview

The PIMCO Monthly Income Fund (Canada) may be an attractive option for income-oriented investors who seek a bond investment offering the potential for a relatively high and consistent stream of income with an emphasis on high-quality fixed income securities. The Fund is actively managed in an effort to maximize current income while maintaining a relatively low risk profile, with a secondary goal of capital appreciation.

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. This Fund’s multi-sector approach allows it to seek out the best income-generating ideas in any given market climate, targeting multiple sources of income from a global opportunity set.

An explicit mandate to avoid concentrated risk

Rather than pursue only the highest income streams from potentially risky securities, the Fund seeks high and consistent dividend income from diversified sources. To maintain its higher average credit quality, the Fund limits below-investment-grade holdings to 50%. Of course, its investments in fixed-income securities will fluctuate in value in response to interest rate changes; rising rates will cause fixed-income securities held by the Fund to decrease in value.

Access to proven expertise

PIMCO has been actively managing income-producing securities for more than 30 years and is recognized as one of the world’s premier bond managers. Known for our innovative philosophy, proven expertise, extensive resources and experienced managers, we have dedicated specialists in virtually every sector of global fixed income.

PIMCO Investment Philosophy and Process

Founded on the principle of diversification, PIMCO believes no single strategy 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) to 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 –which 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 – these 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.

A sales communication that includes a rate of return or a mathematical table illustrating the potential effect of a compound rate of return must contain a statement in substantially the following words: “[The rate of return or mathematical table shown] is used only to illustrate the effects of the compound growth rate and is not intended to reflect future values of [the investment fund or asset allocation service] or returns on investment [in the investment fund or from the use of the asset allocation service].”

Investments made by a Fund and the results achieved by a Fund are not expected to be the same as those made by any other PIMCO-advised Fund, including those with a similar name, investment objective or policies.

A Fund may be forced to sell a comparatively large portion of its portfolio to meet significant shareholder redemptions for cash, or hold a comparatively large portion of its portfolio in cash due to significant share purchases for cash, in each case when the Fund otherwise would not seek to do so, which may adversely affect performance.​

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 while generally supported by a government, government-agency or private guarantor, there is no assurance that the guarantor will meet its obligations. 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. 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. 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.
