The PIMCO Low Duration Exchange-Traded Fund (Ticker: LDUR) is a diversified portfolio of high quality bonds that is actively managed in an effort to limit interest rate exposure while maximizing returns in a risk-controlled framework.

The SEC yield is an annualized yield based on the most recent 30 day period.
In order to provide additional information regarding the intra-day value of shares of the Fund, the NYSE Arca, Inc. or a market data vendor disseminates every 15 seconds through the facilities of the Consolidated Tape Association or other widely disseminated means an updated Indicative NAV (“iNAV”) for the Fund as calculated by an information provider or market data vendor. The Fund is not involved in or responsible for any aspect of the calculation or dissemination of the iNAV and makes no representation or warranty as to the accuracy of the iNAV.
Net Asset Value (NAV) represents an ETFs per-share value. The per-share value of an ETF is calculated by dividing the total value of the securities in its portfolio, less any liabilities, by the number of ETF shares outstanding. ETF shares are valued as of the close of regular trading (normally 4:00 P.M. Eastern Time) (The “NYSE Close”) on each business day.
The Net Asset Value (NAV), Shares Outstanding and Total Net Assets are calculated as of the close of regular trading on each day that the NYSE Arca is open, and do not reflect security transactions or fund shares created or redeemed on the date stated. Such transactions are recorded on the next business day and reported on the website the following business day.
Returns are average annualized total returns, except for those periods of less than one year, which are cumulative. Market returns are based upon the midpoint of the bid/ask spread at 4:00 pm Eastern time (when NAV is normally determined for most Funds), and do not represent the returns you would receive if you traded shares at other times.
A word about risk: Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit and inflation risk; investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. 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. 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. The value of most bond strategies and fixed income securities are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and more volatile than securities with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise.
The BofA Merrill Lynch 1-3 Year U.S. Treasury Index is an unmanaged index comprised of U.S. Treasury securities, other than inflation-protection securities and STRIPS, with at least $1 billion in outstanding face value and a remaining term to final maturity of at least one year and less than three years. It is not possible to invest directly in an unmanaged index.
