Why Invest In This Fund
Adapting quickly to new trends
This helps to increase diversification benefits, because our shorter-term trend windows are quick to respond to changes in markets.
Getting the most out of the biggest trends
We scale up positions when trends are strong, and reduce them if trends are weak. This may increase performance when trends are strong, potentially leading to higher returns.
Actively managing collateral
A core PIMCO proficiency, actively managed collateral provides an additional source of potential alpha for investors. There are no hidden fees on collateral management.
Incorporating forward-looking macro insight into research
Insights from our time-tested macroeconomic investment process are incorporated into model design, acknowledging that the future may not look like the past.
