Overview

Fund Overview

Time-tested systematic approach to emerging markets equity investing

The fund invests in a diversified portfolio of emerging markets stocks using the Research Affiliates Equity (RAE) strategy, an innovative value approach designed to outperform the MSCI Emerging Markets Value Index.

Why Invest In This Fund

Capitalizes on market inefficiencies

RAE selects and weights stocks based on fundamental measures of company size including sales, cash flow, dividends, and book value. By removing price from the portfolio construction process, this value fund aims to buy low and sell high, and to outperform its benchmark over time.

Enhanced by active insights

Starting with fundamental weighting, the strategy then refines these weights by incorporating active insights into quality, momentum, style and size with the goal of further enhancing returns. These insights continually evolve based on the ongoing research of the portfolio managers.

Offers the benefits of investing systematic equity strategy

The fund’s unique rules-based approach seeks a consistent investment process and a contrarian portfolio designed to deliver market outperformance.

Our Expertise

PIMCO has partnered with Research Affiliates to deliver equity strategies since 2005.

1The 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.
2Beta measures the market related volatility of a portfolio. The beta of the market is 1 by definition. A beta greater than 1 indicates that a portfolios market risk is greater than the overall markets, while a beta less than 1 indicates a lower market risk. It is important to note that having a low market risk does not necessarily imply low volatility. A portfolio may have a low beta while experiencing volatility due to factors independent of the market.
3R-squared measures the percentage of a portfolio's movements that are explained by movements in the overall market. Standard deviation is an absolute measure of volatility measuring dispersion about an average which, for a mutual fund, depicts how widely the returns varied over a certain period of time.

A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold a fund. Past performance is not an indicator of future results.

In an environment where interest rates may trend upward, rising rates will negatively impact most bond funds, and fixed income securities held by a fund are likely to decrease in value. Bond funds and individual bonds with a longer duration (a measure of the expected life of a security) tend to be more sensitive to changes in interest rates, usually making them more volatile than securities with shorter durations.
The Fund may invest in high-yield, lower-rated securities, which generally involve greater risk to principal than investment in higher-rated securities. The 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-U.S. securities, which include potentially higher risks due to non-U.S. currency fluctuations and political or economic uncertainty 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.

Unless otherwise stated in the prospectus or in the relevant key investor information document, the Fund referenced in this material is not managed against a particular benchmark or index, and any reference to a particular benchmark or index in this material is made solely for risk or performance comparison purposes. This material may contain additional information, not explicit in the prospectus, on how the Fund or strategy is currently managed.

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.
