Since entering the alternatives space in 2002, PIMCO has provided clients with access to non-traditional investment strategies that seek to deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns across all market cycles. More than 100 investment professionals worldwide oversee hedge fund and opportunistic/distressed strategies, including global macro, credit relative value, volatility arbitrage, and distressed mortgage and corporate credit opportunities.
PIMCO’s approach to alternatives embodies a time-tested macroeconomic investment process and a strong risk management culture with detailed asset-level credit analysis. By using investment vehicles with liquidity and volatility profiles matching those of their underlying investments, we believe these strategies permit investors to access sources of return typically unavailable in traditional strategies.
As of 30 June 2015, PIMCO managed approximately $23.7 billion in alternative strategies, including $15.6 billion in hedge funds and $16.2 billion in cumulative capital commitments to opportunistic funds.
