A high quality bond fund for long-term investors
With a focus on long-term U.S. government securities, the fund may be used as a core holding for risk-tolerant investors or to help position a portfolio for expected interest rate trends.
Why Invest In This Fund
A high credit quality investment
U.S. government securities offer income and capital appreciation potential with low credit risk. Note that while the fund invests at least 80% of its assets in U.S. government securities, its shares are not government-guaranteed and they will fluctuate in value.
Total return approach
By focusing on current income alone many U.S. government funds may be sacrificing opportunities to protect and grow capital. This fund pursues maximum total return - both income and capital appreciation - using the PIMCO’s time-tested investment process.
The fund benefits from PIMCO’s time-tested investment process: our rigorously
developed macro outlook, our bottom-up credit analysis and our research teams’ deep reservoir of
specialized investment expertise.
Drawing on PIMCO’s rigorously developed global macro outlook and extensive bottom-up credit research capabilities, the fund’s expert portfolio management team employs numerous strategies to increase total return potential and manage risk. These include duration and yield curve management -especially important to long-duration portfolios.
