PIMCO Source ETFs
PIMCO and Source have partnered in December 2010 to provide fixed income exposure to European investors. Together, PIMCO and Source are committed to delivering intelligent, well-engineered fixed income exposure to the European ETF market. PIMCO Source ETFs combine the transparency and operational simplicity that investors expect from Source ETFs with the fixed income expertise and thought leadership of PIMCO.

PIMCO Source are designing ETFs to meet investor demand for more than the traditional benchmark exposure. Fixed income is a broad and complex asset class where passive, traditional indexation may not always be the best solution.

PIMCO Source offer UCITS compliant ETFs, ranging from short maturity strategies to those investing in longer term securities. The ETFs invest physically in the underlying securities which are selected by the portfolio manager and purchased by PIMCO on behalf of the Fund. All PIMCO Source ETFs will benefit directly from PIMCO’s fixed income expertise, and rigorous investment management process in conjunction with Source’s proven distribution model and ability to enhance trading liquidity.
