Fund Overview

Targets high, consistent income

Designed for investors who need steady income, the Fund takes a broad-based approach to investing in income-generating bonds. It employs our 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 favour. 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 from a global opportunity set.

Total return approach to maximising income potential

While maximising current income is its primary goal, the Fund also seeks long-term capital appreciation and attractive risk-adjusted returns. This means that while the Fund is going to seek out the highest possible income for investors, it aims to not sacrifice quality or principal.

Ability to be opportunistic

The Fund can tactically shift portfolio weightings, moving to wherever we believe attractive yields can be generated in this increasingly complex and volatile investment environment. This flexibility helps the Fund to nimbly capture opportunities as economic and market conditions change.

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.

Our Expertise

Harnessing the best bottom-up and top-down insights

The Fund’s portfolio management team ensures that both bottom-up insights from each of PIMCO’s specialty desks and top-down insights from PIMCO’s macroeconomic process drive portfolio positioning for the Fund.
