The currency market is one of the largest and most liquid financial markets in the world. Currencies like the U.S. dollar, the euro and the yen trade in the foreign exchange (FX) market 24 hours a day, fluctuating in value relative to each other almost constantly.

PIMCO’s FX Strategy taps this market, representing the full expression of PIMCO’s best currency investment ideas and leveraging both our deep macroeconomic expertise and our extensive quantitative research capabilities. Our approach seeks to generate returns by exploiting structural inefficiencies and valuation misalignments in global currency markets, while explicitly managing downside tail risk.

PIMCO’s FX Strategy employs a three-pronged approach combining quantitative, qualitative and tail risk hedging techniques to provide investors an efficient and risk-aware opportunity to benefit from secular changes and shifting valuations in global exchange rates. The FX Strategy is a natural extension of PIMCO’s evolution as a complete global investment solutions provider.

Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. All investments contain risk and may lose value. 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. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and may reduce the returns of a portfolio. 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 and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest for a long-term especially during periods of downturn in the market.
