Barron's Fund Family overall ranking for PIMCO: 1Yr. 5 out of 57; 5Yrs. 18 out of 55, and; 10 Yrs. 1 out of 49. Barron’s/Lipper ranking is based on after fees performance weighted by asset size, relative to the fund family’s other assets in its general classification. Performance of a fund family’s largest funds can materially affect a firm’s ranking. To be included in the ranking, a firm must have at least three funds in the general equity category, one world equity, one mixed equity (e.g., balanced or target-date fund), two taxable bonds, and one tax-exempt bond fund. Single-sector, country, and state-specific municipal-bond funds are not factored into the score; nor are Standard & Poor’s 500 index funds. Past rankings are no guarantee of future rankings.
The Lipper Fund Awards, granted annually, highlight funds and fund companies that have excelled in delivering consistently strong risk-adjusted performance relative to their peers.

The Lipper Fund Awards are based on the Lipper Leader for Consistent Return rating, which is a risk-adjusted performance measure calculated over 36, 60 and 120 months. The fund with the highest Lipper Leader for Consistent Return (Effective Return) value in each eligible classification wins the Lipper Fund Award. For more information, see lipperfundawards.com.
