Fund Overview
Single entry to the full EM bond toolkit

The fund is designed to offer investors a comprehensive solution to emerging markets (EM) fixed income exposure, with dynamic asset allocation decisions based on PIMCO’s evolving assessments of the global economy and markets.


Why Invest In This Fund
Dynamic exposure to EM bonds

The fund allows investors to gain strategic exposure to the growing EM fixed income universe. Ongoing tactical asset allocation adjustments are based on PIMCO’s assessments of the global economy and markets, and relative values among EM fixed income classes. Exposures are gained primarily through PIMCO’s EM funds, although the fund may also hold other funds and individual securities.


Attractive return potential

The fund’s ability to invest across diverse EM fixed income classes – including local government bonds and U.S. dollar-denominated sovereign and corporate securities – allows it to capture compelling spread, yield and exchange rate opportunities through shifting market conditions, while also managing the risks associated with EM.


Extensive EM experience

PIMCO’s emerging markets team averages 12 years of experience analyzing sovereign creditworthiness, assessing policy developments, and trading across a wide range of market environments. The fund’s actively managed approach combines PIMCO’s top-down insights with intensive bottom-up country and corporate credit analysis.

A word about risk: The Fund invests in other funds and performance is subject to underlying investment weightings which will vary. The cost of investing in the Fund will generally be higher than the cost of investing in a fund that invests directly in individual stocks and bonds. 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. 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. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. 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. Investing in distressed companies (both debt and equity) is speculative and may be subject to greater levels of credit, issuer and liquidity risks, and the repayment of default obligations contains significant uncertainties; such companies may be engaged in restructurings or bankruptcy proceedings. Entering into short sales includes the potential for loss of more money than the actual cost of the investment, and the risk that the third party to the short sale may fail to honor its contract terms, causing a loss to the portfolio. 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. The Fund is non-diversified, which means that it may invest its assets in a smaller number of issuers than a diversified fund.
