Fund Overview

Global income and total return potential

By actively investing in dividend-paying stocks around the world, this fund aims to offer attractive current income and long-term capital appreciation.

Why Invest In This Fund

Global and flexible

Because attractively priced dividend-paying companies are often found outside the U.S., the fund’s investment strategy is both global and unconstrained. The fund has considerable flexibility to invest in what its investment team believes are the best opportunities across geographies and sectors.

Driven by research

Fundamental research is used to uncover attractively priced companies that are able and willing to increase dividend payments over time. Prospective investments are evaluated to determine their potential to contribute to the fund’s total return objective.

Enhanced by PIMCO’s expertise

The fund benefits from PIMCO’s pioneering total return approach and extensive global resources. The investment team actively uses our credit, commodity, foreign exchange, and macroeconomic expertise to enhance individual company analysis and overall portfolio construction.

Our Expertise

The fund is managed by seasoned dividend investor Brad Kinkelaar. PIMCO’s active equity team consists of more than 30 portfolio managers, analysts and other professionals, with expertise across strategies and regions.

Prices & Performance Footnotes & Disclosures


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.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. 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.

7The Sharpe Ratio measures the risk-adjusted performance. The risk-free rate is subtracted from the rate of return for a portfolio and the result is divided by the standard deviation of the portfolio returns.
8Beta measures the market related volatility of a portfolio. The beta of the market is 1 by definition. A beta greater than 1 indicates that a portfolios market risk is greater than the overall markets, while a beta less than 1 indicates a lower market risk. It is important to note that having a low market risk does not necessarily imply low volatility. A portfolio may have a low beta while experiencing volatility due to factors independent of the market.
9R-squared measures the percentage of a portfolio's movements that are explained by movements in the overall market. Standard deviation is an absolute measure of volatility measuring dispersion about an average which, for a mutual fund, depicts how widely the returns varied over a certain period of time.
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.

A word about risk:

Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic, and industry conditions. Investing in securities of smaller 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 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. 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.
