Objective

The investment objective is to seek a total return which exceeds that of its benchmark index namely, the S&P 500 Index.

Overview

Fund Description

The PIMCO GIS RAE Fundamental PLUS US Fund is a fundamentally-weighted, smart beta-based equity strategy that aims to outperform the S&P 500 Index. Unlike traditional market cap-weighted approaches, the fund selects and weights stocks based on non-price measures of company size. By removing price from the portfolio construction process, the fund seeks to capitalize on market inefficiencies, systematically capturing returns when prices deviate from fundamentals. Additionally, PIMCO’s innovative PLUS™ implementation provides a second source of excess return and diversification potential. This approach simply uses equity-linked instruments to provide investors with full equity exposure, which leaves the bulk of their capital free to be allocated to a complementary bond alpha strategy.

Investor Benefits

This fund offers investors persistent, meaningful potential excess returns over U.S. equity markets without a corresponding increase in volatility.

Potential benefits of this fund include:

  • A broad, diversified exposure to U.S. equity markets
  • Ability to capitalize on market inefficiencies, contra-trading against the market to systematically buy low and sell high
  • Time-tested, rules-based approach provides opportunity for long-term outperformance

The Fund Advantage

In addition to a broad, diversified equity market exposure, the fund provides the potential for meaningful outperformance relative to both the market and passively implemented smart beta index approaches.
