why invest in this fund

Attractive Risk/Return Characteristics

Short-term high yield investors have historically benefited from a lower volatility profile than the broader high yield market, as well as the attractive returns of the asset class.

Fund Specific Risks

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.

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.

Liquidity Risk

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).

Index Tracking Risk

Fund performance can potentially deviate from the reference index due to market conditions, transaction costs and different replication techniques such as optimization & sampling

Fees and Expenses

Name Value
Management Fee 0.55%

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.

Benchmark

Unless referenced in the prospectus and relevant key investor information document, a benchmark or index in this material is not used in the active management of the Fund, in particular for performance comparison purposes.

Where referenced in the prospectus and relevant key investor information document a benchmark may be used as part of the active management of the Fund including, but not limited to, for duration measurement, as a benchmark which the Fund seeks to outperform, performance comparison purposes and/or relative VaR measurement. Any reference to an index or benchmark in this material, and which is not referenced in the prospectus and relevant key investor information document, is purely for illustrative or informational purposes (such as to provide general financial information or market context) and is not for performance comparison purposes. Please contact your PIMCO representative for further details.

 

Correlation

As outlined under “Benchmark”, where referenced in the prospectus and relevant key investor information document, a benchmark may be used as part of the active management of the Fund. In such instances, certain of the Fund’s securities may be components of and may have similar weightings to the benchmark and the Fund may from time to time show a high degree of correlation with the performance of any such benchmark. However the benchmark is not used to define the portfolio composition of the Fund and the Fund may be wholly invested in securities which are not constituents of the benchmark.

 

Investors should note that a Fund may from time to time show a high degree of correlation with the performance of one or more financial indices not referenced in the prospectus and relevant key investor information document. Such correlation may be coincidental or may arise because any such financial index may be representative of the asset class, market sector or geographic location in which the Fund is invested or uses a similar investment methodology to that used in managing the Fund.
