Enhanced Yield Potential
Short-dated corporate bonds offer a yield that is higher than short-dated government bonds but with similar drawdown risk.
Credit and Default Risk
A decline in the financial health of an issuer of a fixed income security can lead to an inability or unwillingness to repay a loan or meet a contractual obligation. This could cause the value of its bonds to fall or become worthless. Funds with high exposures to non-investment grade securities have a higher exposure to this risk.
Changes in exchange rates may cause the value of investments to decrease or increase.
Derivatives and Counterparty Risk
The use of certain derivatives could result in the fund having a greater or more volatile exposure to the underlying assets and an increased exposure to counterparty risk. This may expose the fund to larger gains or losses associated with market movements or in relation to a trade counterparty being unable to meet its obligations.
Emerging Markets Risk
Emerging markets, and especially frontier markets, generally carry greater political, legal, counterparty and operational risk. Investments in these markets may expose the fund to larger gains or losses.
Difficult market conditions could result in certain securities becoming hard to sell at a desired time and price.
Interest Rate Risk
Changes in interest rates will usually result in the values of bond and other debt instruments moving in the opposite direction (e.g. a rise in interest rates likely leads to fall in bond prices).
Mortgage Related and Other Asset Backed Securities Risks
Mortgage or asset backed securities are subject to similar risks as other fixed income securities, and may also be subject to prepayment risk and higher levels of credit and liquidity risk.

|Data point name||Data point value|
The fund is considered to be actively managed in reference to the ICE BofAML US Corporate Bond 1–5 Year Index (the "Index") by virtue of the fact that the Index is used for calculating the global exposure of the fund using the relative VaR methodology and for performance comparison purposes. Certain of the fund’s securities may be components of and may have similar weightings to the Index. However, the Index is not used to define the portfolio composition of the fund or as a performance target and the fund may be wholly invested in securities which are not constituents of the Index. The fund is actively managed in reference to the above Benchmark as further outlined in the prospectus and key investor information document.

Indicative Net Asset Value (iNAV) is a measure of the net asset value intraday, and is reported every 15 seconds during trading hours. PIMCO has partnered with external vendor Intercontinental Exchange Ltd. (ICE) to calculate iNAV for the European ETF Fund Ranges. ICE calculates iNAV using the mid prices of the respective ETF basket of securities to derive the market value and divides the total market value by creation unit size. The iNAV is calculated daily.
Fees & Expenses
Because the fund is an ETF, investors will typically only be able to buy or sell shares in the secondary market, on exchange. Authorized Participants who help in the creation or redemption of shares in the primary market, may face “create” or “redeem” fees (aka “entry” or “exit” fees) on the cash portion of the transaction (up to a maximum of 3.00%). These create and redeem fees are not applicable to secondary market investors. However, secondary market investors may incur brokerage and/or transaction fees in connection with their dealings. Secondary market investors may also bear the costs of bid-ask spreads; meaning the difference between the prices at which shares can be bought and sold.
