GIS Balanced Income and Growth Fund

ISIN: IE00B3SWFQ91

Updated 21 May 2024

  • The Fund aims to achieve its investment objective by taking exposure to a wide range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income, commodities and property.
  • The Fund’s asset allocation strategy may not achieve the desired results under all circumstances and market conditions. The investments of the Fund may be periodically rebalanced and therefore the Fund may incur greater transaction costs than a fund with static allocation strategy.
  • Equity securities generally have greater price volatility than fixed income securities.
  • Investments in fixed income instruments are subject to credit, interest rate, liquidity, credit rating 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 global investment, emerging markets, valuation, sovereign debt, currency, RMB currency and conversion and repurchase / reverse repurchase transactions.
  • It may invest more than 10% of its net assets in securities issued or guaranteed by a single sovereign issuer with a credit rating below investment grade (e.g. South Africa and Turkey) 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. counterparty/credit, liquidity, valuation, volatility, over-the-counter transaction 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 documents of the Fund for further details including the risk factors.

1PIMCO calculates a Fund's Estimated Yield to Maturity by averaging the yield to maturity of each security held in the Fund on a market weighted basis. PIMCO pulls each security's yield to maturity from PIMCO's Portfolio Analytics database. When not available in the PIMCO's Portfolio Analytics database, PIMCO pulls the security's yield to maturity from Bloomberg. When not available in either database, PIMCO will assign a yield to maturity for that security from a PIMCO matrix based on prior data. Yields reported gross of fees, the deduction of which will reduce the yield.
2For funds with quarterly distribution, the annualised distribution yields are annualised on a 12 month calendar year [Annualised distribution yield= ( Dividend Rate * 4 ) / NAV on ex-dividend day]. Dividend is not guaranteed. A positive distribution yield does not imply a positive return.
3Current yield is a security’s annual income (interest or dividends) divided by its current price. The estimate of current yield is based on PIMCO's best judgment for the securities in the portfolio on the date shown. PIMCO makes no representation on the accuracy or the methodology used. Yields reported gross of fees, the deduction of which will reduce the yield.
4The dividend amount or dividend distribution rate/yield is based on historical dividend amount or dividend rate/yield. The dividend amount or dividend rate/yields is not guaranteed.
5Dividend is not guaranteed. Past distributions are not necessarily indicative of future trends, which may be lower. A positive distribution yield does not imply a positive return. Distribution payments of the Fund where applicable, may at the sole discretion of the Fund, be made out of either income and/ or capital of the Fund. In the case of the Fund, the Fund may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital which may result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s NAV per share. In the case of Income II Shares, the Fund may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital as well as take into account the yield differential arising from share class currency hedging (which constitutes a distribution from capital). The management and other fees payable by the Income II Shares may also be charged to the capital of the Income II Shares, resulting in an increase in distributable income available for the payment of dividends and therefore, the Income II Shares may effectively pay dividends out of capital. This may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per share for the Income II Shares.
6Data does not include special cash dividends.
7Data is based on distributions since the most recent calendar year end and does not include special cash dividends.

disclosures

Past performance is not indicative of future performance and no guarantee is being made that similar returns will be achieved in the future. All period longer than one year are annualized. Performance shown is on a NAV-to-NAV basis in the denominated currency and are net of fees and other expenses and on the assumption that dividends are reinvested, as applicable. Investment returns not denominated in USD/HKD are exposed to exchange rate fluctuations. Performance data has been calculated in the currency as shown above including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee and redemption fee that an investor might have to pay.
Where no past performance is shown, there was insufficient data in that year to provide performance.
Daily YTD return is from the most recent calendar year end.
Growth of $10,000 is calculated at NAV and assumes that all dividend and capital gain distributions were reinvested. It does not take into account sales charges or the effect of taxes. Results are not indicative of future performance.
Morningstar ratings are shown for funds with 4 or 5 star ratings only. Other share classes ratings are either lower or unavailable. A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold a fund. © 2024 Morningstar, Inc. All Rights Reserved. The information contained herein: (1) is proprietary to Morningstar; (2) may not be copied or distributed; and (3) is not warranted to be accurate, complete or timely. Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this information. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.
The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating", is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its three-, five-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% three-year rating for 36-59 months of total returns, 60% five-year rating/40% three-year rating for 60-119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% five-year rating/20% three-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent three-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.

Morningstar Rating™ is for the above share class only; other classes may have different performance characteristics.
