The managed account strategies described in this material are offered by Pacific Investment Management Company LLC and is available exclusively through financial professionals. Managed accounts have a minimum asset level and may not be appropriate for all investors. Financial professionals seeking more information should contact their managed accounts department or call their PIMCO representative.

Select Managed Accounts strategies consist of individual securities and a select combination of proprietary, commingled vehicles. These vehicles are available only through managed accounts utilizing the Managed Accounts strategy and are available by prospectus only.

Individual account holdings will vary depending on the size of an account, cash flows and account restrictions. Portfolio holdings are subject to change daily without notice. At any time an individual account managed in this strategy may or may not include securities held by another portfolio. Consequently, any particular account may have portfolio characteristics and performance that differ from another individual account in this strategy.

A word about risk:
All investments contain risk and may lose value. Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and low interest rate environments increase this risk. Reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Inflation-linked bonds (ILBs) issued by a government are fixed-income securities whose principal value is periodically adjusted according to the rate of inflation; ILBs decline in value when real interest rates rise. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are ILBs issued by the U.S. Government. Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government, obligations of U.S. Government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. Government; portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value. Investors will, at times, incur a tax liability. Income from municipal bonds is exempt from federal income tax and may be subject to state and local taxes and at times the alternative minimum tax; a strategy concentrating in a single or limited number of states is subject to greater risk of adverse economic conditions and regulatory changes. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.

There is no guarantee that these investment strategies will work under all market conditions or are appropriate for all investors and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest long-term, especially during periods of downturn in the market.
