Asia High Yield Bond Fund

PIMCO GIS Asia High Yield Bond Fund

High Yield Doesn’t Have To Mean Higher Risk

  • The Fund may primarily invest in Asian higher yielding fixed income instruments (i.e. fixed income instruments that are below investment grade and unrated securities of similar credit rating).
  • Investments in fixed income securities are subject to interest rate, credit, credit rating, valuation and downgrade risks. The Fund is also subject to risks of investing in high yield, below investment grade and unrated securities.
  • It is subject to risks associated with emerging markets, concentration, sovereign debt, mortgage-related and other asset-backed securities, currency, liquidity and repurchase / reverse repurchase transactions.
  • It is also subject to risks relating to Mainland debt securities and direct access to the China Inter-Bank Bond Market and PRC tax risk.
  • It may invest more than 10% in non-investment grade securities issued or guaranteed by a single sovereign issuer (e.g. Maldives, Mongolia, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam) which may be subject to increased credit risk and risk of default.
  • It may invest in financial derivative instruments which may involve additional risks (e.g. market, counterparty, liquidity, volatility and leverage risks).
  • It may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital directly or effectively, which amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to the original investment. Any distributions involving the payment of dividends out of the Fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s net asset value per share.
  • Investments involve risks and your investment may suffer significant losses.
  • Investors should not rely solely on this material and should read the offering document of the Fund for further details including the risk factors.
