The primary investment objective of the Fund is to seek high current income, consistent with prudent investment management. Long-term capital appreciation is a secondary objective.



Fund Description

The Income Fund is a portfolio that is actively managed and utilizes a broad range of fixed income securities that seek to produce an attractive level of income while maintaining a relatively low risk profile, with a secondary goal of capital appreciation.

Investor Benefits

This fund seeks to meet the needs of investors who are targeting a competitive and consistent level of income without compromising long term capital appreciation. The fund seeks to generate a competitive monthly dividend while also maintaining a focus on the total return objective. The fund aims to achieve this by employing PIMCO's best income-generating ideas across global fixed income sectors with an explicit mandate on risk-factor diversification. The fund offers daily liquidity.

The Fund Advantage

This fund is designed for investors who seek steady income: it takes a broad-based approach to investing in income-generating bonds. The fund taps into multiple areas of the global bond market, and employs PIMCO's vast analytical capabilities and sector expertise to help temper the risks of high income investing. This approach seeks to provide consistent income over the long term.

This share class aims to pay dividends at the frequency stated above. Dividend payout is not guaranteed.


Focusing on Inflation May Miss the Bigger Risk

The COVID-19 relief bill has spurred talk of inflation, but financial stability may be a more relevant risk.


Surge in Rates May Be Overstating the Case for Inflation

Longer-dated Treasury yields have climbed as markets consider whether economic growth and inflation expectations might accelerate more rapidly. We believe inflation pressures will remain in check and bond yields will be range-bound.

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 monthly distribution, the annualized distribution yields are annualised on a 12 month calendar year [Annualised distribution yield= (Dividend Rate * 12) / 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 and the Income II Shares, the Fund may at its discretion pay dividends out of capital and charge management fees to capital, thereby resulting in an increase in distributable income available for the payment of dividends by the Fund/Income II Shares and therefore, the Fund / Income II shares may effectively pay dividends out of capital. In the case of Income II Shares, the Fund may also charge other fees to capital and also take into account the yield differential arising from share class currency hedging (which constitutes a distribution from capital). This may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per share for the Fund and 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.

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. © 2017 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.

9The 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.
10The information ratio is defined as the portfolio's excess return per unit of risk, or tracking error. For example, an information ratio of 1 means that a portfolio manager generates 100 basis points, or one percent of excess return for every 100 basis points of risk taken.
11Tracking error, a measure of risk, is defined as the standard deviation of the portfolio's excess return vs. the benchmark expressed in percent.
12May include nominal and inflation-protected Treasuries, Treasury futures and options, agencies, FDIC-guaranteed and government-guaranteed corporate securities, and interest rate swaps.
13Short duration emerging markets instruments includes an emerging market security or other instrument economically tied to an emerging market country by country of risk with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or if unrated, determined to be similar quality by PIMCO. Emerging Markets includes the value of short duration emerging markets instruments previously reported in another category.
14May include municipals, convertibles, preferreds, and yankee bonds.
15Net Other Short Duration Instruments includes securities and other instruments (except instruments tied to emerging markets by country of risk) with an effective duration less than one year and rated investment grade or higher or, if unrated, determined by PIMCO to be of comparable quality, commingled liquidity funds, uninvested cash, interest receivables, net unsettled trades, broker money, short duration derivatives (for example Eurodollar futures) and derivatives offsets. With respect to certain categories of short duration securities, the Adviser reserves the discretion to require a minimum credit rating higher than investment grade for inclusion in this category. Derivatives Offsets includes offsets associated with investments in futures, swaps and other derivatives. Such offsets may be taken at the notional value of the derivative position which in certain instances may exceed the actual amount owed on such positions.
Duration Weighted Exposure (DWE%) is the percentage weight of each sector’s contribution to the overall duration of the fund
