Morningstar ratings as of 2/29/2020. Performance data as of 12/31/2019. Source: PIMCO, Bloomberg. Mutual Fund performance is for the Institutional Class Shares. Performance displayed is net of fees. 1 The Net Expense Ratio reflects a contractual fee waiver related to the Fund's subsidiary that will not terminate so long as PIMCO's advisory contract with the Fund's subsidiary is in place. The Adjusted Expense Ratio is the same as the Net Expense Ratio, but also excludes certain investment expenses such as interest expense from borrowings and repurchase agreements and dividend expense from investments on short sales, incurred directly by the Fund or indirectly through the Fund's investments in underlying PIMCO Funds (if applicable), none of which are paid to PIMCO.

Performance quoted represents past performance. Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. Investment return and the principal value of an investment will fluctuate. Shares may be worth more or less than original cost when redeemed. Current performance may be lower or higher than performance shown. For performance current to the most recent month-end, visit or call (888) 87-PIMCO.
