Overview

Fund Description

PIMCO RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor U.S. Equity is a smart beta strategy that seeks to track the investment results of the RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor U.S. Index. The fund is designed to provide investors with the benefits of dynamically-weighted exposure to multiple equity factors, including value, quality, low volatility, momentum and size - a diversified approach that seeks to improve return potential.

Investor Benefits

Incorporating the latest smart beta research from Research Affiliates, the fund provides the following potential benefits:

  • Exposure to multiple equity factors that theory and research have linked to higher returns, a combination that may offer a smoother ride than single-factor approaches.
  • A unique RAFI (Research Affiliates Fundamental Index) approach to weighting stocks within each factor portfolio.
  • A dynamic weighting process that overweights factors that may be more attractive on a forward-looking basis, reducing the potential risk associated with buying expensive factors.

The Fund Advantage

PIMCO and Research Affiliates believe that our differentiated approach to multi-factor investing creates the potential for higher returns through both factor portfolio construction and dynamic allocation of the individual factor portfolios.

We believe this value conscious approach to factor investing makes the Fund an attractive option for smart beta investors, and can serve as a complement to or replacement for traditional equity approaches.

RAFI Dynamic Multi‑Factor US Net TR Index

BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor U.S. Index consists of “factor portfolios” of US stocks, which emphasize the following five factors: value, low volatility, quality, momentum and size. The value factor emphasizes companies with a high ratio of company fundamental weight to its market capitalisation weight. The low volatility factor emphasises companies with low risk measures calculated as the variance of a company’s daily excess return over five years explained by global, local country groups and global industry excess returns. The quality factor emphasises companies that are high in profitability and low in investment spending. The momentum factor emphasises stocks with high momentum. The size factor is the equal weight of the small company portions of the other four factors. Returns are calculated net of withholding taxes.

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.
2The 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.

RISK Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and the current low interest rate environment increases this risk. Current reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Commodities contain heightened risk, including market, political, regulatory and natural conditions, and may not be suitable for all investors. Currency rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and may reduce the returns of a portfolio. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks, such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. Investing in foreign-denominated and/or -domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Sovereign securities are generally backed by the issuing government. Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees, but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. government. Portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value. High yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Mortgage- and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and while generally supported by a government, government-agency or private guarantor, there is no assurance that the guarantor will meet its obligations. Income from municipal bonds may be subject to state and local taxes and at times the alternative minimum tax. Swaps are a type of derivative; swaps are increasingly subject to central clearing and exchange-trading. Swaps that are not centrally cleared and exchange-traded may be less liquid than exchange-traded instruments. Inflation-linked bonds (ILBs) issued by a government are fixed income securities whose principal value is periodically adjusted according to the rate of inflation; ILBs decline in value when real interest rates rise. Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS) are ILBs issued by the U.S. government. Certain U.S. government securities are backed by the full faith of the government. Obligations of U.S. government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. government. Portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value.
