Overview

This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the Prospectus of the PIMCO Funds: Global Investors Series Plc and to the KIID before making any final investment decisions.

Fund Description

PIMCO GIS Climate Bond Fund offers a global, flexible, multi-sector credit portfolio that aims to help foster the transition to a net zero carbon economy while seeking risk-adjusted returns comparable to an investment grade portfolio. To do so, the fund invests in a diversified portfolio of multi-sector global bonds from issuers of labeled and unlabeled green bonds, as well as companies demonstrating climate change leadership across the value chain.

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.

Currency 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.

Fixed Income Risk

There is a risk that the institution which issued the securities will fail, which would result in a loss of income to the fund. Fixed income values are likely to fall if interest rates rise.

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).

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.

Investor Benefits

Addressing climate change has become a first-order issue for many business leaders and policy makers globally as risks and realities mount, and public engagement grows. The fund is designed to address this challenge by investing in efforts to mitigate climate risks today while raising up the providers of long-term climate solutions of tomorrow. Potential benefits of this include:

  • Seeks to deliver positive investment performance while supporting positive climate change solutions
  • Access to a diversified portfolio of multi-sector global bonds – beyond green bonds – from issuers that provide climate solutions across the value chain.
  • Seeks to directly mitigate first-order climate risks while raising up long-term climate solution leaders.

The Fund Advantage

PIMCO’s skilled, flexible multi-sector, global expertise helps the fund access opportunities across the full value chain of the climate mitigation effort while also allowing it to adapt quickly to changing market conditions and new opportunities. Further, PIMCO is well-positioned to influence and support positive climate change solutions. The firm’s expansive reach in fixed income markets due to its size, scope of expertise and ability to engage issuers has made it an impactful participant, which has helped guide companies and move the market toward meaningful climate change solutions. Finally, PIMCO sees investments as relationships. We have conversations with the issuers of the bonds we invest in, in part designed to encourage issuers to improve their approach to sustainability.

RISK Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and the current low interest rate environment increases this risk. Current reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Commodities contain heightened risk, including market, political, regulatory and natural conditions, and may not be suitable for all investors. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and may reduce the returns of a portfolio. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks, such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. Investing in foreign-denominated and/or -domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government. Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees, but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. government. Portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value. High yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Mortgage- and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and while generally supported by a government, government-agency or private guarantor, there is no assurance that the guarantor will meet its obligations. Income from municipal bonds may be subject to state and local taxes and at times the alternative minimum tax. Swaps are a type of derivative; swaps are increasingly subject to central clearing and exchange-trading. Swaps that are not centrally cleared and exchange-traded may be less liquid than exchange-traded instruments. Inflation-linked bonds (ILBs) issued by a government are fixed income securities whose principal value is periodically adjusted according to the rate of inflation; ILBs decline in value when real interest rates rise. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are ILBs issued by the U.S. government. Certain U.S. government securities are backed by the full faith of the government. Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. government. Portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value.

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.

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.
