Long Duration

1988 PIMCO becomes one of the first firms to help investors manage their longer-term liabilities through a long duration approach to fixed income.

TIPS

1997 PIMCO was an early leader in analyzing global inflation-linked bond (ILB) issues, and worked with the U.S. Treasury Department prior to the introduction of the TIPS program in early 1997.

2 As of 30 September 2019. SOURCE: PIMCO Based on PIMCO managed portfolios with at least a 3-years history. The after-fees performance of each portfolio was compared to the portfolio’s primary benchmark. If the after-fees portfolio performance was greater than the benchmark performance for a given period, the assets in that portfolio were included in the outperforming data. Benchmark outperformance indicates the performance of a portfolio as compared to its benchmark. As such, it does not indicate that a portfolio’s performance was positive during any given period. For example, if a portfolio declined 3% during a given period, and its benchmark declined 4%, the portfolio would have outperformed its benchmark, even though it lost value during the period. Certain absolute return oriented portfolios contained within the data may inflate the data either positively or negatively due to the low return/volatility characteristics of the primary benchmark. For example a portfolio measured against 3-month USD Libor would be more likely to out- or underperform its benchmark. No measure of past performance should be understood to ensure that future performance will be positive, whether on a relative or absolute basis.
