PIMCO’s scores reflect information and data reported by PIMCO to PRI in the 2021 reporting cycle (as of December 31, 2020).

PRI’s 2021 scoring methodology has changed to reflect the new Reporting Framework. Scores for the 2021 reporting cycle are not comparable to previous years. Prior to 2021, PRI assessments were awarded scores based on a scale from A+ to E, with A+ being highest score and E being the lowest. PRI Assessments awarded from 2021 onward are based on a scale of 1-5 Stars. 1 Star being the lowest score, 5 Stars being the highest.
