Inflation often appears quickly and unexpectedly, making it important for long-term investors to be prepared in all market environments. While many investors are looking to hedge against this risk, some are contemplating how best to take advantage of an inflationary economic scenario. Inflation-related investments such as inflation-linked bonds, commodities and real estate offer real, or inflation-adjusted, returns as well as potential diversification benefits relative to typical portfolios without strategic allocations to such assets.
PIMCO’s inflation protection solutions are designed to provide a comprehensive portfolio solution for investors seeking diversified exposure to the broad opportunity set of inflation-related investments, including assets that respond to different types of inflation.
By drawing on the expertise of our global real return team, the fund is able to take advantage of our macro inflation outlook and bottom-up research capabilities.
