What is the PIMCO Long Duration Strategy?
PIMCO’s long duration portfolios are core fixed income portfolios with durations longer than six years that seek to maximize total return, consistent with the preservation of capital and prudent investment management. With our long duration assignments, we utilize all major sectors of the bond market within the scope of the client’s tailored guidelines. The PIMCO long duration philosophy is guided by three major principles:
- Pursue active management that makes strategic investment decisions based on a combination of a secular macroeconomic focus and changing cyclical market trends
- Diversify risk while maintaining a high average credit quality
- Enhance asset-liability matching through advanced proprietary modeling
