Looking for a more balanced approach to Asia Credit?
Meet the PIMCO GIS Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund, an actively managed Asia fixed income fund incorporating PIMCO’s best ideas.
It seeks to generate attractive and stable levels of income, as well as long-term capital appreciation.
The Fund targets to achieve these objectives with an average investment grade rating and a focus on managing downside risk.
The Fund has a flexible investment approach, harvesting PIMCO’s best ideas in both higher quality and higher income assets.
This includes US-dollar denominated investment grade and high yield bonds, across Asia sovereign, quasi-sovereign and corporate issuers, as well as tactical exposures.
The Fund’s flexible approach means its core holdings are complemented by many diversifying trades, including bonds from outside Asia, and onshore China opportunities.
Active duration management also enables the Fund to both take advantage of, and defend against rising or falling interest rates.
The Fund focuses on countries, sectors and bonds with stronger long-term growth prospects and attractive relative value, instead of just stretching for the highest yield.
Rigorous bottom-up credit selection is key, as government policy and idiosyncratic risks drive divergence in performance across the region.
This approach allows the Fund to act as a core allocation in investors’ Asia portfolios, which can be complemented by single sector or single country exposures.
PIMCO’s approach to Asia credit leverages the rigorous macroeconomic expertise, bottom-up research, and analytics that have made PIMCO a global fixed income leader since 1971.
It’s the time-tested investment process that investors know and trust PIMCO for.
