Income Fund


Updated 15 March 2018


To seek high current income, consistent with prudent investment management. Long-term capital appreciation is a secondary objective.

Investments Held

Primarily invests in higher income-providing fixed income assets from across the globe, which in PIMCO’s view also demonstrate capital preservation attributes.


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.

A word about risk:

Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including the risk that fixed income securities will decline in value because of changes in interest rates; the risk that fund shares could trade at prices other than the net asset value; and the risk that the manager's investment decisions might not produce the desired results. Investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. 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. 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. 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. Diversification does not ensure against loss.
