What Is PIMCO’s Euro Short Term Strategy?

PIMCO’s Euro Short Term strategy is designed to improve on the returns provided by a typical money market vehicle. The Euro Short Term strategy seeks to maximize current income while preserving capital and providing daily liquidity. The Euro Short Term strategy, which is based on PIMCO’s short-term process, invests in a broad range of money market and short maturity fixed income securities as well as in longer maturities and lower rated credits to attempt to generate excess relative returns. While the majority of portfolio assets will normally be invested in euro-denominated securities, there will also be allocations to global securities, which are normally currency hedged back to euros. We utilize all major sectors of the bond markets to implement a diversified set of strategies including country, currency and sector rotation, yield curve positioning and duration management.

​Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. All investments contain risk and may lose value. Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk. 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. Corporate debt securities are subject to the risk of the issuer’s inability to meet principal and interest payments on the obligation and may also be subject to price volatility due to factors such as interest rate sensitivity, market perception of the creditworthiness of the issuer and general market liquidity. PIMCO strategies utilize derivatives which 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. The credit quality of a particular security or group of securities does not ensure the stability or safety of the overall portfolio. Diversification does not insure against loss.
