Access to the full universe of global high yield bonds
By expanding beyond the boundaries of the U.S. and accessing the full range of credit qualities within the global universe of non-investment-grade bonds, the PIMCO High Yield Spectrum Fund seeks attractive risk-adjusted returns for investors.
Why Invest In This Fund
Broad market representation
The fund represents a broad range of credit qualities, sectors and industries across the globe, supported by PIMCO’s 25 years of high yield experience. Potential benefits of high yield bonds include added portfolio diversification and enhanced returns. Of course, diversification does not ensure against loss.
Our security selection process is focused on identifying companies with credit ratings that may not accurately reflect a company’s improving fundamentals, prospects for ratings upgrades and lower risk of default.
Fundamentals remain strong
Default rates for high yield bonds have fallen sharply since 2009, remaining well below their long-term historical average. This, along with improving balance sheets and higher recovery rates when defaults do occur, should continue to bode well for corporate fundamentals.
PIMCO High Yield Spectrum Fund is managed by Andrew Jessop, a high yield expert with 30 years of investing experience, and Sonali Pier, a seasoned investor with 16 years of experience. The team is supported by PIMCO’s time-tested investment process, global macroeconomic forecasts, proprietary risk-management techniques, and detailed analysis of each security represented in the fund.
