The Global Investment Grade Credit ESG Fund is an actively managed portfolio that invests primarily in investment grade global corporate instruments, while delivering positive environmental and social benefits. The fund is diversified broadly across industries, issuers, and regions on the basis of PIMCO’s top-down, bottom-up and internal ESG screening process which includes ESG exclusions, evaluation and engagement decisions.
The fund offers the potential for investors to achieve returns consistent with other core bond strategies while also making a positive environmental and social impact.
The fund looks to benefit from the PIMCO investment process, which combines our global top-down views on the macroeconomic environment with independent bottom-up analysis. The PIMCO investment team has the experience and depth to actively manage a broad and diversified opportunity set. The fund will also favor issuers with best-in-class ESG practices and those who are working to enhance them.
