Fund Overview

Access high-quality fixed income worldwide

PIMCO Global Bond Opportunities Fund (U.S. Hedged) utilizes benchmark agonistic approach that provides greater flexibility to invest across global markets than a traditional, benchmark oriented bond strategy with limited currency risk. By navigating exposures across different rate environments, growth dynamics, credit profiles, and policy objectives, the fund has demonstrated an ability to deliver attractive returns while reducing overall portfolio volatility.

Why Invest In This Fund

Enhanced flexibility to invest across global markets

Guided by PIMCO’s global outlook, the fund’s flexible structure allows it to focus on what we believe are the best ideas in global fixed income while also retaining core bond characteristics.

Increased return diversification relative to domestic bonds

Diversifying instruments internationally can help mitigate volatility, and may also grant rich opportunities for solid diversification and the potential for strong risk-adjusted returns over time.

Time-tested process

Supported by a deep international presence with over 50 global portfolio managers located around the world, the fund capitalizes on PIMCO’s industry leadership and time-tested investment process, which guide portfolio construction via our top-down macroeconomic outlook and rigorous bottom-up credit analysis.
