How do we manage investments at PIMCO?

We bring together a multitude of minds, because only with diverse perspectives can we think broadly and dynamically about opportunity and risk.

Our process has been refined over decades.

Photographs of PIMCO employees speaking at a PIMCO secular forum.

It starts with our annual Secular forum, where PIMCO investment professionals from around the world gather for 2 1/2 days to discuss and debate the state of the global economy and markets. The result is our 3 to 5 year macroeconomic outlook.

Photographs from a secular forum and PIMCO Global Advisory Board members.

Joining the debate are some of the world’s most distinguished thinkers. Guest speakers include Nobel laureate economists, policymakers, scientists and historians - as well as the members of our Global Advisory Board, chaired by Former Federal Reserve chairman, Ben Bernanke.

We strive to identify risks now before they happen, because we know our clients are invested now… for the future.

But the investment landscape is constantly changing, so we refine our views 3 time a year at our cyclical forums, which examine a business cycle time frame of 6 to 12 months.

All this insight guides the work of our Investment Committee, a group of senior portfolio managers led by our CIOs – who meet 4 times a week, for 2 to 3 hours a day.

They set specific investment parameters for PIMCO portfolios around the world.

The big picture perspective is vital, but it’s not enough.

We strive to get a real feel, on the ground, for every risk we take. That’s why portfolio managers build portfolios from the bottom up, drawing on our in-depth credit research.

We have more than 60 analysts around the world, who provide independent credit ratings on more than 13,000 securities.

At PIMCO our investment process is designed to not just find opportunities for investors, but to create them.

We work dynamically, not just analytically. Our process is far more than any one person.

It distills our best ideas from around the world, all for a single purpose – helping our clients succeed in every environment.
