Objective

The investment objective of the Fund is to preserve the real value of capital through prudent investment management. The Fund will be managed actively and will predominantly invest in a diversified portfolio of inflation-related assets.

Overview

Fund Description

The Inflation Strategy Fund is a comprehensive real return asset allocation solution designed to hedge global inflation risks while targeting enhanced after inflation return. It invests actively in global inflation-linked bonds, commodities, emerging market (EM) currencies, real estate and gold. In addition, tail risk hedging strategies are used to limit the impact of periodic market stresses that may affect inflation-related assets.

Investor Benefits

The potential benefits of the Inflation Strategy Fund include:

  • Strategic allocation to a comprehensive set of real assets, enhanced by active management of these assets.
  • Portfolio diversification relative to a traditional portfolio comprising stocks and bonds
  • Robust risk diversification and management, including strategies to explicitly hedge against systemic market risks

The Fund Advantage

The fund combines top-down macroeconomic views from PIMCO’s Global Investment Committee and Asset Allocation Committee with bottom-up relative value ideas from the specialist Real Return team.
