Overview

Fund Description

PIMCO GIS Climate Bond Fund offers a global, flexible, multi-sector credit portfolio that aims to help foster the transition to a net zero carbon economy while seeking risk-adjusted returns comparable to an investment grade portfolio. To do so, the fund invests in a diversified portfolio of multi-sector global bonds from issuers of labeled and unlabeled green bonds, as well as companies demonstrating climate change leadership across the value chain.

Investor Benefits

Addressing climate change has become a first-order issue for many business leaders and policy makers globally as risks and realities mount, and public engagement grows. The fund is designed to address this challenge by investing in efforts to mitigate climate risks today while raising up the providers of long-term climate solutions of tomorrow. Potential benefits of this include:

  • Seeks to deliver positive investment performance while supporting positive climate change solutions
  • Access to a diversified portfolio of multi-sector global bonds – beyond green bonds – from issuers that provide climate solutions across the value chain.
  • Seeks to directly mitigate first-order climate risks while raising up long-term climate solution leaders.

The Fund Advantage

PIMCO’s skilled, flexible multi-sector, global expertise helps the fund access opportunities across the full value chain of the climate mitigation effort while also allowing it to adapt quickly to changing market conditions and new opportunities. Further, PIMCO is well-positioned to influence and support positive climate change solutions. The firm’s expansive reach in fixed income markets due to its size, scope of expertise and ability to engage issuers has made it an impactful participant, which has helped guide companies and move the market toward meaningful climate change solutions. Finally, PIMCO sees investments as relationships. We have conversations with the issuers of the bonds we invest in, in part designed to encourage issuers to improve their approach to sustainability.

Yields & Distributions

Historical Prices & Distributions

Estimated Gross Yield to Maturity1 as of 30/09/2021 1.92%
Current Yield4 as of 30/09/2021 1.91%
Underlying Portfolio Yield5 as of 30/09/2021 1.39%

disclosures

1PIMCO calculates a Fund's Estimated Yield to Maturity by averaging the yield to maturity of each security held in the Fund on a market weighted basis. PIMCO pulls each security's yield to maturity from PIMCO's Portfolio Analytics database. When not available in the PIMCO's Portfolio Analytics database, PIMCO pulls the security's yield to maturity from Bloomberg. When not available in either database, PIMCO will assign a yield to maturity for that security from a PIMCO matrix based on prior data. Yields reported gross of fees, the deduction of which will reduce the yield.
2Dividend is not guaranteed. Past distributions are not necessarily indicative of future trends, which may be lower. A positive distribution yield does not imply a positive return. Distribution payments of the Fund where applicable, may at the sole discretion of the Fund, be made out of either income and/ or capital of the Fund. In the case of the Fund, the Fund may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital which may result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s NAV per share. In the case of Income II Shares, the Fund may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital as well as take into account the yield differential arising from share class currency hedging (which constitutes a distribution from capital). The management and other fees payable by the Income II Shares may also be charged to the capital of the Income II Shares, resulting in an increase in distributable income available for the payment of dividends and therefore, the Income II Shares may effectively pay dividends out of capital. This may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per share for the Income II Shares.
3For share classes that have been incepted for less than one year, the average payout yield is calculated as the cumulation of payout yields since inception [sum of non-annualised distribution yield since inception; non –annualized yield for each period = Dividend Rate / NAV on ex-dividend day]. For dividend-paying share classes that have been incepted for more than one year, the average payout yield is calculated as average annualized dividend yield since inception [sum of annualized dividend yield since inception/ No. of periods since inception].
4Current yield is a security’s annual income (interest or dividends) divided by its current price. The estimate of current yield is based on PIMCO's best judgment for the securities in the portfolio on the date shown. PIMCO makes no representation on the accuracy or the methodology used. Yields reported gross of fees, the deduction of which will reduce the yield.
5The underlying portfolio yield is calculated as estimated current yield net of unified fees for the share class [Current Yield – Unified Fees]. Current yield is a security’s annual income (interest or dividends) divided by its current price. The underlying portfolio yield is based on PIMCO's best judgment for the securities in the portfolio on the date shown. PIMCO makes no representation on the accuracy or the methodology used. Yields reported net of fees.
6For share classes that have been incepted for less than 1 year, the average distribution since inception is calculated on a cumulative basis for the year[sum of dividend amount since inception]. For share classes that have been incepted more than 1 year but less than 10 years, the average distribution since inception is calculated as the average distribution amount since inception [sum of dividend amount since inception/ No. of periods since inception].For share classes that have incepted for more than 10 years, the average distribution is disclosed for the past 10 years. [sum of dividend amount for the past 10 years/ No. of periods for the past 10 years].

disclosures

Past performance is not indicative of future performance and no guarantee is being made that similar returns will be achieved in the future. All periods longer than one year are annualised. Performance shown is on a NAV-to-NAV basis in the denominated currency and are net of fees and other expenses and on the assumption that dividends are reinvested, as applicable. Where stated, performance of the Fund is also shown taking into account the maximum preliminary charge of 5%. A preliminary charge of up to 5% may or may not be deducted from the subscription amount depending on the distributor from whom you had purchased shares, as such this may not represent actual performance returns. Investment returns denominated in non-local currency may be exposed to exchange rate fluctuations.
Where no past performance is shown, there was insufficient data in that year to provide performance.
Daily YTD return is from the most recent calendar year end.
Growth of $10,000 is calculated at NAV and assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions were reinvested. It also assumes that $10,000 is invested into the fund, after deducting preliminary charges (if any). It does not take into account the effect of taxes. Results are not indicative of future performance.
