Fund Description

The PIMCO Active Bond Exchange-Traded Fund (Ticker: BOND) is a diversified portfolio of high quality bonds that is actively managed, seeking current income and long-term capital appreciation, consistent with prudent investment management. BOND invests primarily in investment grade debt securities, and discloses all portfolio holdings on a daily basis. The Fund will seek to maintain a fairly consistent level of dividend income, and generally seeks to manage capital gain distributions. However, there can be no assurance that a change in market conditions or other factors will not result in a significant change in the Fund’s distribution rate or that the rate will be sustainable in the future. With a primary benchmark of the Barclays U.S. Aggregate Index, the fund offers a core bond strategy that is designed to capitalize on opportunities across multiple sectors of the fixed income market.
