Fund Overview
Income and diversification potential

Bank loans, which offer a floating rate of income, may provide a hedge against rising rates. This actively managed portfolio of senior secured floating rate loans is designed to provide attractive risk-adjusted return potential, with a higher quality orientation.

Why Invest In This Fund
An attractive risk/return profile

Floating rate bank loans, made to below- investment-grade companies, offer higher-return potential credit than investment grade bonds, and tend to have lower volatility than high yield bonds. The fund emphasizes higher-quality loans, which typically have a higher recovery rate and lower risk of default than lower-quality, unsecured debt.

Minimal interest rate exposure

Because rates on bank loans typically float, or shift to prevailing interest rates, they may provide a hedge in a rising rate environment, as well as an opportunity to enhance returns with increased credit exposure.

Time-tested management expertise

PIMCO has managed floating rate bank loans portfolios since 1997. Our process, which combines bottom-up security selection, robust credit research and our long-term global outlook, provides an informed framework for positioning the portfolio across the credit cycle.

A word about risk:
Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk; investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Bank loans are often less liquid than other types of debt instruments. There is no assurance that the liquidation of any collateral from a secured bank loan would satisfy the borrower’s obligation, or that such collateral could be liquidated. 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. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested.
