The investment objective of the PIMCO Credit Absolute Return Fund is to seek a positive total return across a variety of market environments, consistent with preservation of capital and prudent investment management.


Fund Description

The Credit Absolute Return Fund is a diversified absolute return-oriented global credit strategy that is not tethered to benchmark-specific guidelines. The fund has significant discretion to allocate across a broad range of global credit sectors, and it is designed to offer the flexibility to actively adjust long and short credit exposures to target opportunities in any market environment while providing proactive downside risk mitigation.

Investor Benefits

The fund targets absolute returns and is designed for investors seeking exposure to credit but with greater flexibility than a more traditional approach. Since the fund is focused on positive returns in all market environments, it may appeal to many types of investors over the long term.

The Fund Advantage

This fund combines an unconstrained absolute return objective, proactive risk management and global diversification. The fund is guided by the full depth and breadth of PIMCO’s global credit investment expertise, which comes from the seamless integration of four decades of experience with robust credit research and a time-tested, forward-looking investment process. This helps the fund to target opportunities across global credit markets and may provide the agility to adjust risk exposures in anticipation of shifting market risks and opportunities.


3 Month Euribor

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.
2The 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.

Portfolio Composition Footnotes & Disclosures


3The Sharpe Ratio measures the risk-adjusted performance. The risk-free rate is subtracted from the rate of return for a portfolio and the result is divided by the standard deviation of the portfolio returns.
4The information ratio is defined as the portfolio's excess return per unit of risk, or tracking error. For example, an information ratio of 1 means that a portfolio manager generates 100 basis points, or one percent of excess return for every 100 basis points of risk taken.
5Tracking error, a measure of risk, is defined as the standard deviation of the portfolio's excess return vs. the benchmark expressed in percent.
6May include nominal and inflation-protected Treasuries, Treasury futures and options, agencies, FDIC-guaranteed and government-guaranteed corporate securities, and interest rate swaps.
7Short duration emerging markets instruments includes an emerging market security or other instrument economically tied to an emerging market country by country of risk with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or if unrated, determined to be similar quality by PIMCO. Emerging Markets includes the value of short duration emerging markets instruments previously reported in another category.
8May include municipals, convertibles, preferreds, and yankee bonds.
9Net Other Short Duration Instruments includes securities and other instruments (except instruments tied to emerging markets by country of risk) with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or, if unrated, determined by PIMCO to be of comparable quality, commingled liquidity funds, uninvested cash, interest receivables, net unsettled trades, broker money, short duration derivatives (for example Eurodollar futures) and derivatives offsets. With respect to certain categories of short duration securities, the Adviser reserves the discretion to require a minimum credit rating higher than investment grade for inclusion in this category. Derivatives Offsets includes offsets associated with investments in futures, swaps and other derivatives. Such offsets may be taken at the notional value of the derivative position which in certain instances may exceed the actual amount owed on such positions.
