PIMCO Funds: Global Investors Series PLC - Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund E USD


The PIMCO GIS Asia Strategic Interest Bond Fund seeks to generate an attractive and stable income, with a secondary objective of long-term capital appreciation. It invests across investment grade, high-yield bonds, and sovereign debt in Asia-ex Japan. The Fund’s objective was changed in 2020, and it also widened its investment universe to include more Asian and emerging market note issuers.

The Bond Fund can access the considerable investment resources of PIMCO worldwide, including a team of over 60 analysts globally who rate all credits on an ongoing basis. As expected, the Fund has robust risk management procedures and controls. While performance has been consistent, it notably outperformed its peers in terms of the less severe drawdown it faced during the market correction in March 2000.

Our assessment of this particular PIMCO Fund was hindered slightly by the Fund’s recent change of objective and investment focus.

ESG is considered part of the overall analysis with each credit rating including an ESG assessment and flagged if there are significant concerns.

This Fund has been reviewed by three industry veterans of the Benchmark judging committee.
