BENCHMARK

25% MSCI ACWI High Dividend Yield Index / 75% Bloomberg Barclays US Aggregate Index

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The MSCI ACWI High Dividend Yield Index is based on MSCI ACWI, its parent index, and includes large and mid cap stocks across 23 Developed Markets (DM) and 24 Emerging Markets (EM) countries. The index is designed to reflect the performance
of equities in the parent index (excluding REITs) with higher dividend income and quality characteristics than average dividend yields that are both sustainable and persistent. The index also applies quality screens and reviews 12-month past performance to omit stocks with potentially deteriorating fundamentals that could force them to cut or reduce dividends. Bloomberg U.S. Aggregate Index represents securities that are SEC-registered, taxable, and dollar denominated. The index covers the U.S. investment grade fixed rate bond market, with index components for government and corporate securities, mortgage pass-through securities, and asset-backed securities. These major sectors are subdivided into more specific indices that are calculated and reported on a regular basis. It is not possible to invest directly in an unmanaged index.

Yields & Distributions

Historical Prices & Distributions

Estimated Gross Yield to Maturity1 as of 31/10/2022 6.54%
Current Yield5 as of 31/10/2022 3.84%
Underlying Portfolio Yield2,6 as of 31/10/2022 2.15%

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.
2The dividend amount or dividend distribution rate/yield is based on historical dividend amount or dividend rate/yield. The dividend amount or dividend rate/yields is not guaranteed.
3Dividend 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.
4For 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].
5Current 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.
6The 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.
7For 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].

In the statistics section, P/E Ratio, and Median Market Cap. are the averages of the P/E and market capitalization of the issues held by the fund. P/E is a ratio of security price to earnings per share. Typically, an undervalued security is characterized by a low P/E ratio, while an overvalued security is characterized by a high P/E ratio.
Market capitalization is the value of a corporation as determined by the market price of its issued and outstanding common stock. It is calculated by multiplying the number of outstanding shares by the current share price. Active share measures the proportion of stock holdings in a portfolio’s composition to the composition of its benchmark.
