Fund Description

PIMCO RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor Global Developed Equity is a smart beta strategy that seeks to track the investment results of the RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor Developed Index. The fund is designed to provide investors with the benefits of dynamically-weighted exposure to multiple equity factors, including value, quality, low volatility, momentum and size - a diversified approach that seeks to improve return potential.

Investor Benefits

Incorporating the latest smart beta research from Research Affiliates, the fund provides the following potential benefits:

  • Exposure to multiple equity factors that theory and research have linked to higher returns, a combination that may offer a smoother ride than single-factor approaches.
  • A unique RAFI (Research Affiliates Fundamental Index) approach to weighting stocks within each factor portfolio.
  • A dynamic weighting process that overweights factors that may be more attractive on a forward-looking basis, reducing the potential risk associated with buying expensive factors.

The Fund Advantage

PIMCO and Research Affiliates believe that our differentiated approach to multi-factor investing creates the potential for higher returns through both factor portfolio construction and dynamic allocation of the individual factor portfolios.

We believe this value conscious approach to factor investing makes the Fund an attractive option for smart beta investors, and can serve as a complement to or replacement for traditional equity approaches.

PRIMARY BENCHMARK

RAFI Dynamic Multi‑Factor Developed Index

PRIMARY BENCHMARK DESCRIPTION

The RAFI Dynamic Multi-Factor Developed Index consists of “factor portfolios” of global developed stocks, which emphasize the following five factors: value, low volatility, quality, momentum and size. The value factor emphasizes companies with a high ratio of company fundamental weight to its market capitalisation weight. The low volatility factor emphasises companies with low risk measures calculated as the variance of a company’s daily excess return over five years explained by global, local country groups and global industry excess returns. The quality factor emphasises companies that are high in profitability and low in investment spending. The momentum factor emphasises stocks with high momentum. The size factor is the equal weight of the small company portions of the other four factors. Returns are calculated net of withholding taxes.
