PIMCO introduced investors to a total return approach to fixed income investing in 1971. In the 45+ years since, they have continued to bring innovation and expertise to their partnership with clients seeking the best investment solutions. Today PIMCO has offices across the globe and 2,300 professionals united by a single purpose: creating opportunities for investors in every environment.
PIMCO partners with a wide range of institutions, including corporations, central banks, universities, endowments and foundations, and public and private pension and retirement plans. In addition they work with advisors and millions of individual investors pursuing personal financial goals, from preparing for retirement to funding higher education. Investing their clients’ assets is a tremendous responsibility, and for that reason there can be no shortcuts. They work relentlessly to help these investors reach their goals.
Prepared. PIMCO believes that performance starts with preparation. They conduct exhaustive research and analysis to continuously evaluate the world’s changing risks and opportunities, from broad economic trends to individual securities. Their aim is to deliver forward-looking solutions that maximize the possibilities for their clients.
Tested. There is no substitute for experience. PIMCO’s distinctive top-down, bottom-up investment process has been tested in every market environment. That process is more than any one person – it is fundamental to their firm and will guide their efforts on behalf of their clients.
Invested. PIMCO believes there is nothing more important than the partnership with their clients. Markets don’t stand still and neither do they, innovating to build solutions to meet investors’ evolving needs. They are invested in helping their clients achieve what they set out to accomplish.
PIMCO’s investment process has evolved over decades and been tested in virtually every market environment. It integrates insights from their Cyclical Forums, which anticipate market and economic trends over the coming six to 12 months, and the annual Secular Forum, which projects trends over the coming three to five years. These top-down views are complemented by bottom-up perspectives from specialists and quantitative analysis of individual securities and portfolio construction. The Investment Committee, which is composed of senior investment professionals, drives decision-making on a daily basis.
