The PIMCO Broad U.S. Treasury Index Exchange-Traded Fund is an exchange-traded fund (ETF) that aims to capture the returns of The BofA Merrill Lynch Liquid US Treasury IndexSM. The fund aims to achieve the yield, duration and capital preservation inherent in this index, while providing access to the broad Treasury yield curve with one fund rather than multiple Treasury ETFs or individual securities. The fund intends to invest in a liquid basket that includes the three most recently issued 2-year, 3-year, 5-year, 7-year, 10-year, and 30-year U.S. Treasury notes and bonds (including the on-the-run issues, which are the most recent issues in these maturities). These typically offer better liquidity than more seasoned issues, potentially reducing investor transaction costs.
