Fund Overview
Global income and total return potential

By actively investing in dividend-paying stocks around the world, this fund aims to offer attractive current income and long-term capital appreciation.

Why Invest In This Fund
Global and flexible

Because attractively priced dividend-paying companies are often found outside the U.S., the fund’s investment strategy is both global and unconstrained. The fund has considerable flexibility to invest in what its investment team believes are the best opportunities across geographies and sectors.

Driven by research

Fundamental research is used to uncover attractively priced companies that are able and willing to increase dividend payments over time. Prospective investments are evaluated to determine their potential to contribute to the fund’s total return objective.

Enhanced by PIMCO’s expertise

The fund benefits from PIMCO’s pioneering total return approach and extensive global resources. The investment team actively uses our credit, commodity, foreign exchange, and macroeconomic expertise to enhance individual company analysis and overall portfolio construction.

A word about risk:
Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Investing in securities of smaller companies tends to be more volatile and less liquid than securities of larger companies. 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. 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. Diversification does not ensure against loss.
