How it works

The fund is an actively managed global portfolio of inflation-linked bonds, primarily issued by developed governments such as the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Japan.

It may also have limited tactical holdings, including nominal government, mortgage, corporate or money market securities.

As this fund invests some of its assets outside the Eurozone, a currency risk arises for a euro investor. This fund is managed by PIMCO Global Advisors (Ireland) Limited.
