PIMCO’s renowned status as a fixed income specialist and its entrenched presence in the region have enabled it to amass over 100 distributors within its Asia ex-Japan global wealth management business spanning banks and family offices. A household name, PIMCO continues to secure a dominant share of third-party private client assets and a renewed recent interest in high-yields may further tilt in its favour. The scale of the firm’s operations allows PIMCO to cater to the needs of specific private banks or portfolios for various risk profiles.
Uncertainty will remain throughout 2016 and, for this reason, disciplined management will be a critical factor in helping portfolios mitigate volatility, all the while maintaining income distribution across the fixed income universe. Being successful in the space is no small feat, and selectors in the Asia region have chosen PIMCO as this year’s Best Fund Provider – Global Bond.
