Strategy Overview

International income and total return potential

The strategy offers investors the potential for current income and capital appreciation by investing in what PIMCO believes are the most attractive dividend-paying opportunities outside of the U.S. In addition to providing current income, the strategy may serve as a solution for international equity exposure with potentially lower volatility.


A Word About Risk:
Equitiesmay decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Investing in securities ofsmaller companies tends to be more volatile and less liquid than securities of larger companies. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and politicalrisks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. High-yield, lower-rated, securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities;portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Derivatives mayinvolve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when mostadvantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.
