Attractive Risk/Return Characteristics
Short-term high yield investors have historically benefited from a lower volatility profile than the broader high yield market, as well as the attractive returns of the asset class.
Credit and Default Risk
A decline in the financial health of an issuer of a fixed income security can lead to an inability or unwillingness to repay a loan or meet a contractual obligation. This could cause the value of its bonds to fall or become worthless. Funds with high exposures to non-investment grade securities have a higher exposure to this risk.
Derivatives and Counterparty Risk
The use of certain derivatives could result in the fund having a greater or more volatile exposure to the underlying assets and an increased exposure to counterparty risk. This may expose the fund to larger gains or losses associated with market movements or in relation to a trade counterparty being unable to meet its obligations.
Difficult market conditions could result in certain securities becoming hard to sell at a desired time and price.
Interest Rate Risk
Changes in interest rates will usually result in the values of bond and other debt instruments moving in the opposite direction (e.g. a rise in interest rates likely leads to fall in bond prices).
Index Tracking Risk
Fund performance can potentially deviate from the reference index due to market conditions, transaction costs and different replication techniques such as optimization & sampling

Indicative Net Asset Value (iNAV) is a measure of the net asset value intraday, and is reported every 15 seconds during trading hours. PIMCO has partnered with external vendor Intercontinental Exchange Ltd. (ICE) to calculate iNAV for the European ETF Fund Ranges. ICE calculates iNAV using the mid prices of the respective ETF basket of securities to derive the market value and divides the total market value by creation unit size. The iNAV is calculated daily.
Fees & Expenses
Because the fund is an ETF, investors will typically only be able to buy or sell shares in the secondary market, on exchange. Authorized Participants who help in the creation or redemption of shares in the primary market, may face “create” or “redeem” fees (aka “entry” or “exit” fees) on the cash portion of the transaction (up to a maximum of 3.00%). These create and redeem fees are not applicable to secondary market investors. However, secondary market investors may incur brokerage and/or transaction fees in connection with their dealings. Secondary market investors may also bear the costs of bid-ask spreads; meaning the difference between the prices at which shares can be bought and sold.
