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 Emerging Markets Bond ESG Fund is a diversified portfolio that invests primarily in fixed-income securities from issuers in, or economically tied to, emerging or developing countries, while focusing on environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors. The Fund is managed according to PIMCO EM investment process combined with internal ESG screening process, which includes exclusions, evaluation and engagement.

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.

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

This fund offers efficient exposure to emerging markets, potentially attractive risk-adjusted returns, and moderate correlations to other asset classes, while also making a positive social and environmental impact.

The Fund Advantage

The fund benefits from PIMCO’s well establish emerging markets investment process, experienced global portfolio management team with round-the-clock trading capability, and strict risk-management of the portfolio exposures. The investment process combines our global top-down views on macroeconomic environment with fundamental bottom-up analysis of EM countries. In addition the fund is fully integrated into PIMCO’s ESG framework (Exclusion, Evaluation, Engagement), which aims to deliver a positive social and environmental impact by impacting issuers’ behavior.

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.

Yields reported gross of fees, the deduction of which will reduce the yield. Yields are reported in the base currency of the fund and are not specific to the share class.

Socially Responsible Investment (SRI) – also called Responsible Investments (RI) – is a strategy aiming for solid financial returns while at the same time taking into account environment, social and governance factors. PIMCO has partnered with Storebrand, a leading Nordic pensions and insurance company, to provide the SRI screen for investments in the PIMCO Socially Responsible Emerging Markets Strategy. Investing in emerging market securities imposes greater risks including smaller market capitalization of securities markets which can experience illiquidity, price volatility, restrictions, repatriation of investment income and capital, in addition to currency fluctuations, and political or economic uncertainty. This Fund may use derivative instruments for efficient portfolio management purposes. Use of these instruments may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity risk, interest rate risk, market risk, credit risk, management risk and the risk that a fund could not close out a position when it would be most advantageous to do so. Portfolios investing in derivatives could lose more than the principal amount invested. The Fund may invest in non-US securities, which may entail greater risk due to non-US economic and political developments and may be enhanced when investing in emerging markets. The credit quality of the investment in the portfolio does not apply to the stability or safety of the Fund. The Fund offers different share classes, which are subject to different fees and expenses (which may affect performance), have different minimum investment requirements and are entitled to different services. Investment in a Fund that invests in high-yield, lower-rated securities, will generally involve greater volatility and risk to principal than investments in higher-rated securities. The Fund may concentrate its assets in a small number of issuers.

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.
