For more than a decade, PIMCO has managed alternative strategies, including a range of hedge funds, distressed credit funds and opportunistic strategies. We strive to incorporate our time-tested investment process with alternatives-specific talent and resources. Our current offerings include global macro, relative value credit, volatility, relative value commodities, distressed corporate debt and real estate strategies.
PIMCO manages over $24 billion in alternative strategies – approximately $16 billion in hedge funds and $8 billion in committed capital for longer-lock opportunistic strategies as of 30 September 2015. Our strategies benefit from PIMCO’s extensive resources, thought-leadership and trading relationships around the world.
PIMCO is known as a leader in derivatives investing with expertise in both derivatives trading and tail-risk hedging. The Multi-Asset Volatility strategy seeks to capitalize on these resources and constructs a relative-value portfolio across volatility instruments in rates, equities and currencies. The strategy targets low correlation to major asset classes without a directional bias to volatility.
PIMCO is a global investment management firm founded in Newport Beach, California, in 1971. The firm serves a wide range of clients around the world, including public and private pension and retirement plans, central banks, educational institutions, financial advisors and foundations and endowments.
PIMCO provides services only to qualified institutions and investors. The strategies involve a high degree of risk and prospective investors are advised that these strategies are suitable only for persons of adequate financial means who have no need for liquidity with respect to their investment and who can bear the economic risk, including the possible complete loss, of their investment. All investments contain risk and may lose value.
