A balanced approach to income investing

PIMCO Balanced Income Fund aims to provide attractive current income as well as capital appreciation over the long term by combining the higher capital appreciation and dividend-paying potential of equities with the lower volatility and attractive income potential of fixed income.

Why Invest In This Fund

Benefits of a balanced approach

PIMCO’s balanced equity and fixed income strategy strives to provide the attractive return potential of equities with the income and capital preservation potential of fixed income, making it beneficial for investors as a part of a diversified portfolio.

Global and flexible

In an effort to capitalize on changing market conditions, the fund’s investment strategy is global which provides the portfolio management team with considerable flexibility to invest in the best income-generating opportunities across the capital structure, diversified by geography and sector.

Driven by research

PIMCO’s rigorously developed macro outlook combined with robust bottom-up analysis, is used to uncover attractively valued opportunities. For equities, the managers seek companies that currently pay dividends and have the potential for earnings and dividend growth over time. For fixed income, the managers take a broad-based approach, targeting multiple sources of potential income from an expansive opportunity set.

Industry-leading portfolio management

The fund is managed by seasoned dividend investor Brad Kinkelaar and backed by PIMCO’s extensive global resources. The fixed income component is managed by Dan Ivascyn and Alfred Murata.

Performance figures presented reflect the total return performance after fees and reflect changes in share price and reinvestment of dividend and capital gain distributions on the payable date. All periods longer than one year are annualized.
Daily YTD return is from the most recent calendar year end.
Growth of $10,000 is calculated at NAV and assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions were reinvested. It does not take into account sales charges or the effect of taxes. Results are not indicative of future performance.
Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. For funds with at least a 3-yr history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) with an emphasis on downward variations and consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is a weighted average of the performance figures for its 3-, 5- and 10-yr (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar, Inc.® 2015. All rights reserved.

Hollow stars represent a class of shares with inception dates that is different than the inception date of the fund. For the period prior to the inception date of these shares, performance information is based on the performance of the fund’s Institutional Class shares, adjusted to reflect the actual distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and other expenses paid by the newer share class.
The Lipper Category returns and rankings are calculated by Lipper Inc., a Reuters Company, which is a nationally recognized organization that compares the performance of mutual funds with similar investment objectives. The Category returns represent the average performance of included funds, while rankings compare an individual fund's returns to those of the other funds in its category. Both are based on total return performance, with capital gains and dividends reinvested, with annual operating expenses deducted, but without including front- or back-end sales charges. Rankings begin with the actual share class inception. Rankings are relative to a peer group and do not necessarily mean that the fund had high total returns.

Portfolio information in the charts is based on the fund's net assets. These percentages may differ from those used for the fund's compliance calculations, including the fund's prospectus, regulatory, and other investment limitations and policies, which may be based on total assets of the fund or other measurements, may include or exclude various categories of investments from those covered in the portfolio allocation categories shown in this report, and may be based on different classifications and measurements of the fund’s investments and other criteria.
References to specific sectors, securities or issuers are for illustrative purposes only. All holdings are subject to change daily. All share classes have the same portfolio but different expenses.
Holdings are subject to change. The Fund's Top Ten Holdings solely reflect long positions. Securities sold short, derivatives, cash and cash equivalents are not taken into consideration. Long positions for debt (excluding cash equivalents, which generally mean investment grade debt instruments with durations of one year or less) and equity are calculated separately, and in each case, total equity holdings or total debt holdings of an issuer may be aggregated into separate line items. Other than the Fund's initial Top Ten Holdings report, newly initiated holdings will be withheld for the first 60 days unless the issuer has been previously disclosed in an annual-, semi-annual report or reported to the SEC on Form N-Q. Top Ten Holdings generally are shown as of the last day of each month (with a 10 business day delay) but may be delayed provided it is in the best interest of the Fund.
In the statistics section, P/E Ratio, and Median Market Cap. are the averages of the P/E and market capitalization of the issues held by the fund. P/E is a ratio of security price to earnings per share. Typically, an undervalued security is characterized by a low P/E ratio, while an overvalued security is characterized by a high P/E ratio.
Forward P/E is based on estimated future earnings as assembled and calculated by FactSet.
Market capitalization is the value of a corporation as determined by the market price of its issued and outstanding common stock. It is calculated by multiplying the number of outstanding shares by the current share price. Active share measures the proportion of stock holdings in a portfolio’s composition to the composition of its benchmark.
Duration is a measure of a portfolio’s price sensitivity expressed in years. Effective duration is the duration for a bond with an embedded option when the value is calculated to include the expected change in cash flow caused by the option as interest rates change.

A word about risk:

Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. 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 the current low interest rate environment increases this risk. Current 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. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, 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. Investing in securities of smaller companies tends to be more volatile and less liquid than securities of larger companies. 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.
