Fund Overview

A longer duration, core bond investment

PIMCO Long Duration Fund is a core bond fund that provides broad market exposure to high-quality, longer duration fixed income securities. Following PIMCO’s signature total return philosophy and process, it employs a variety of strategies to enhance return potential and manage overall portfolio risk.

Why Invest In This Fund

Greater exposure to interest rate trends

The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of longer duration bonds, with an average duration that normally varies within two years (plus or minus) of the Barclays Capital Long-Term Government/Credit Index. Duration is a measure of a security’s price sensitivity to interest rate changes, measured in years; a longer duration implies greater interest rate sensitivity and return potential than intermediate-duration bonds, but also higher volatility. The Fund can be used as a core holding for investors with a higher risk tolerance, or as an allocation to position a portfolio for expected interest rate trends.

Value-added active management

We seek to add value through active management of the Fund. The portfolio is well-diversified, with flexibility to invest across sectors and issuers. Although the Fund is subject to greater interest rate risk than shorter-duration funds, it strives to limit this risk by maintaining the portfolio’s duration within a moderate range around the benchmark’s duration. The Fund employs PIMCO’s total return philosophy, seeking to balance capital appreciation potential and income.

Duration management expertise

PIMCO, a leading fixed income asset manager, combines various measures to assess the interest rate risk to which a longer duration portfolio may be subjected. Our extensive internal modeling addresses duration in its many forms: bull and bear durations (rate shifts of given amounts); total curve durations (changing yield curve shapes); credit spread durations; and mortgage spread and prepayment durations. Our firm-wide macroeconomic outlook, which forecasts the forces likely to impact fixed income markets over the short and long term, likewise helps drive our duration strategies.


Barclays Long-Term Government/Credit Index
