The Short Term 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 short 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 municipalities of deteriorating credit quality as we look 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.

The SEC yield is an annualized yield based on the most recent 30 day period.
PIMCO 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. In general, the calculation will incorporate the yield based on the notional value of all derivative instruments held by a Fund.
