Why Invest In This Fund

Adapting quickly to new trends

This helps to increase diversification benefits, because our shorter-term trend windows aim to quickly respond to changes in markets.

Getting the most out of the biggest trends

We scale up positions when trends are strong, and reduce them if trends are weak. This may increase performance when trends are strong, potentially leading to higher returns.

Actively managing collateral

A core PIMCO proficiency, actively managed collateral provides an additional source of potential alpha for investors. There are no hidden fees on collateral management.

Incorporating forward-looking macro insight into research

Insights from our time-tested macroeconomic investment process are incorporated into model design, acknowledging that the future may not look like the past.

All investments, including investments in managed investment schemes such as the Fund, come with a degree of risk.
