Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund

PIMCO GIS Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund

A flexible strategy for stable income


Key Benefits of the PIMCO GIS Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund

Steady and reliable income stream

With exposure to a range of issuers across sectors and geographies, no single issuer has an outsized effect on the fund.

Attractive total return potential with lower volatility

Asia fixed income may provide attractive income and potential for capital gains with historically lower volatility compared with other high-yielding sectors. The larger outstanding amounts with higher liquidity, broader sectoral composition, and stronger investor base would warrant a dedicated allocation versus the broader emerging markets asset class.

Active, flexible investment approach

The fund is benchmark-agnostic and actively managed to extract value from what we believe are the best opportunities in the Asian bond market.

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 risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and low interest rate environments increase this risk. Reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Mortgage- and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and while generally supported by a government, government-agency or private guarantor, there is no assurance that the guarantor will meet its obligations. 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. 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. Diversification does not ensure against loss.

Statements concerning financial market trends or portfolio strategies are based on current market conditions, which will fluctuate. There is no guarantee that these investment strategies will work under all market conditions or are appropriate for all investors and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest for the long term, especially during periods of downturn in the market. Outlook and strategies are subject to change without notice.
