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.

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.

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.

Disclosures

All investments contain risk and may lose value. 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 the current low interest rate environment increases this risk. Current 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. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. 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. For a complete description of the risks associated with a particular Fund, please refer to the Fund’s prospectus. Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government, obligations of U.S. Government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. Government; portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value. 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.  Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government, obligations of the U.S. Government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. Government; portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value.  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.
