A core inflation protection, or real return, strategy that invests primarily in high - quality inflation - linked bonds, including Treasury Inflation - Protected Securities (TIPS).
Targets a portfolio that offers liquidity, low credit risk, and a direct link to inflation - which can help investors keep pace with the rate at which costs are rising.
Can contribute to overall portfolio diversification because other financial assets, such as stocks or nominal bonds, may underperform in periods of higher inflation.
Use of a PIMCO managed commingled fund within the portfolio allows for greater diversification potential than smaller separate accounts could otherwise achieve.
Our investment process utilizes both “top - down” and “bottom - up” strategies. Top - down strategies are deployed from a macro view of the portfolio driven by our secular outlook of the forces likely to influence the economy and financial markets over the next three to five years and our cyclical views of two - to four - quarter trends. Implementation in portfolios is effected by selecting securities that achieve the designated objectives. Bottom - up strategies drive our security selection process and facilitate the identification and analysis of undervalued securities. Here, we employ advanced proprietary analytics and expertise across the global fixed income markets. The objective is to combine perspectives from both the portfolio and security levels to consistently add value over time within acceptable levels of portfolio risk.
All of PIMCO’s real return strategies rely on our core competency in fixed income management, with the objective of maximizing real return while seeking preservation of the real capital of a portfolio. We believe that an active approach works in managing inflation - linked bonds, just as active management can add value in other sectors of the bond market. True to PIMCO’s core investment process, we rely on multiple value - adding sources to potentially enhance Real Return portfolio performance, rather than allow any single strategy to dominate returns. PIMCO has been investing in inflation - linked securities since the early 1990s and has taken a leading role in developing products and investment strategies that focus on them. We launched our Real Return strategy in 1997 - the same year that TIPS were introduced.
PIMCO Real Return managed account portfolios are constructed with two components: a core segment of individual bonds that act as a foundation, and a PIMCO - managed sector - oriented commingled vehicle. The core segment represents approximately 55% of the overall portfolio, and focuses on TIPS and other high quality, liquid fixed income securities. The commingled component represents approximately 45% of the portfolio and invests in bonds of varying duration and credit quality – wherever portfolio management finds attractive, risk - adjusted real return potential.
