Higher income and growth potential from multiple global bond sectors
Investing across credit and emerging market bond sectors, PIMCO Diversified Income Fund can serve as a risk-managed, income-oriented complement to traditional core bond holdings.
Why Invest In This Fund
Enhanced income potential
The fund can take advantage of a global opportunity set, focusing on bond sectors that may provide an incremental yield advantage over developed market government bonds. These sectors include primarily investment grade corporate, high yield and emerging market bonds, as well as other credit sectors appearing to offer relative value.
A dynamic, flexible approach
The fund’s management team has the flexibility to adjust the fund’s sector weightings in response to changing market and economic conditions. This dynamic approach can allow the fund to both be defensive and take advantage of compelling income opportunities across regions and credit qualities.
Strong risk-adjusted returns
Sector allocations are guided by PIMCO’s forward-looking global outlook, favoring what we believe are the most attractive return opportunities while limiting exposure to sectors offering less compelling relative value or more downside risk. Over time, our diversified approach has resulted in attractive risk-adjusted returns.
PIMCO has managed credit portfolios for more than 40 years, supported by 50-plus credit analysts based in nine different global offices. This broad investment platform enables us to uncover the best relative value opportunities globally.
