What is the Unconstrained Bond Strategy?

The PIMCO Unconstrained Bond Strategy is an absolute return-oriented, fixed income strategy that embodies PIMCO’s secular thinking, global themes, and integrated investment process without the constraints of a benchmark or significant sector/instrument limitations.

The strategy is designed to offer the traditional benefits of a core bond approach – capital preservation, liquidity and diversification – but with higher alpha potential and the opportunity to mitigate downside risk to a greater degree than what is reasonably possible from traditional active fixed income management approaches.

The Unconstrained Bond Strategy Provides Investors with the Opportunity For:

  • Attractive risk-adjusted return
  • Capital preservation
  • Material diversification benefits

Disclosures

Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. All investments contain risk and may lose value. Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk. 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. PIMCO strategies utilize derivatives which 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. The credit quality of a particular security or group of securities does not ensure the stability or safety of the overall portfolio. There is no guarantee that these investment strategies will work under all market conditions or are suitable for all investors and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest long-term, especially during periods of downturn in the market. Diversification does not ensure against loss.
