Who We Are

PIMCO is one of the world’s premier fixed income investment managers.

With our launch in 1971 in Newport Beach, California, PIMCO introduced investors to a total return approach to fixed income investing. In the 45+ years since, we have continued to bring innovation and expertise to our partnership with clients seeking the best investment solutions. Today we have offices across the globe and 2,800 professionals united by a single purpose: creating opportunities for investors in every environment.

What We Believe In

PIMCO partners with a wide range of institutions, including corporations, central banks, universities, endowments and foundations, and public and private pension and retirement plans. In addition we work with financial advisors and millions of individual investors pursuing personal financial goals, from preparing for retirement to funding higher education. Investing our clients’ assets is a tremendous responsibility, and for that reason there can be no shortcuts. We work relentlessly to help these investors reach their goals.

Prepared. PIMCO believes that performance starts with preparation. We conduct exhaustive research and analysis to continuously evaluate the world’s changing risks and opportunities, from broad economic trends to individual securities. Our aim is to deliver forward-looking solutions that maximize the possibilities for our clients.

Tested. There is no substitute for experience. Our distinctive top-down, bottom-up investment process has been tested in every market environment. That process is more than any one person – it is fundamental to our firm and will guide our efforts on behalf of our clients.

Invested. PIMCO believes there is nothing more important than the partnership with our clients. Markets don’t stand still and neither do we, innovating to build solutions to meet investors’ evolving needs. We are invested in helping our clients achieve what they set out to accomplish.
