Overview

Fund Description

The Global Investment Grade Credit Fund is an actively managed portfolio that invests primarily in investment grade global corporate instruments. The fund is diversified broadly across industries, issuers, and regions on the basis of PIMCO’s top-down and bottom-up processes.

Investor Benefits

The fund offers diversification benefits and greater income potential relative to government bonds or domestic corporate strategies while seeking to retain many of the defensive features of government bonds.

The Fund Advantage

The fund looks to benefit from PIMCO’s investment process, which combines our global top-down views on the macroeconomic environment with independent bottom-up security analysis. PIMCO’s investment team has the experience and depth to actively manage a broad and diversified opportunity set.

Yields & Distributions

Historical Prices & Distributions

Estimated Gross Yield to Maturity1 as of 31/10/2020 2.88%
Current Yield4 as of 31/10/2020 3.06%
Underlying Portfolio Yield5 as of 31/10/2020 2.07%

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.

8Standard deviation is applied to the annual rate of return of an investment to measure the investment's volatility (risk). For share classes that have incepted for at least 3 years; the standard deviations are calculated using the monthly after fee returns of the share classes over the 3 year period (Trailing 3 years) and annualizing it. For share classes that have incepted for at least 1 year but less than 3 years; the standard deviation is calculated using the daily after fee returns of the share classes of the 1 year period (Trailing 1 years) and annualizing it.
9The Sharpe Ratio measures the risk-adjusted performance. The risk-free rate is subtracted from the rate of return for a portfolio and the result is divided by the standard deviation of the portfolio returns.
10The information ratio is defined as the portfolio's excess return per unit of risk, or tracking error. For example, an information ratio of 1 means that a portfolio manager generates 100 basis points, or one percent of excess return for every 100 basis points of risk taken.
11Tracking error, a measure of risk, is defined as the standard deviation of the portfolio's excess return vs. the benchmark expressed in percent.
12May include nominal and inflation-protected Treasuries, Treasury futures and options, agencies, FDIC-guaranteed and government-guaranteed corporate securities, and interest rate swaps.
13Short duration emerging markets instruments includes an emerging market security or other instrument economically tied to an emerging market country by country of risk with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or if unrated, determined to be similar quality by PIMCO. Emerging Markets includes the value of short duration emerging markets instruments previously reported in another category.
14May include municipals, convertibles, preferreds, and yankee bonds.
15Net Other Short Duration Instruments includes securities and other instruments (except instruments tied to emerging markets by country of risk) with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or, if unrated, determined by PIMCO to be of comparable quality, commingled liquidity funds, uninvested cash, interest receivables, net unsettled trades, broker money, short duration derivatives (for example Eurodollar futures) and derivatives offsets. With respect to certain categories of short duration securities, the Adviser reserves the discretion to require a minimum credit rating higher than investment grade for inclusion in this category. Derivatives Offsets includes offsets associated with investments in futures, swaps and other derivatives. Such offsets may be taken at the notional value of the derivative position which in certain instances may exceed the actual amount owed on such positions.
Duration Weighted Exposure (DWE%) is the percentage weight of each sector’s contribution to the overallduration of the fund
