Fund Description

The Intermediate Municipal Bond Active Exchange-Traded Fund is an actively managed exchange-traded fund (ETF). Designed to be appropriate for investors seeking tax-exempt income, the fund consists of a diversified portfolio of primarily intermediate duration, high credit quality bonds, which carry interest income that is exempt from federal tax and in some cases state tax. With this fund, investors will see the names of the bonds owned daily. In the municipal bond market, issuer-specific credit analysis is critical. Unlike index funds that typically rely solely on a rating agency for credit analysis, PIMCO applies extensive research on each municipal bond we own in the fund. We believe it is imperative to analyze each issuer, both at purchase and on an ongoing basis, to avoid what we feel are municipalities of deteriorating credit quality in our efforts to protect investors’ capital. Active management not only enables the fund to invest in only the issuers and securities we endorse, but also allows us to change the portfolio structure should credit conditions change. In addition, active management allows for management of capital gains and losses, working to minimize the tax effect of gains, while harvesting losses when available.
