Fund Description

The PIMCO Commodity RealReturn Strategy Fund Institutional Class (PCRIX) is a low-cost, actively managed fund that is designed to seek real return (meaning after inflation). The fund does this by betting on commodities futures via the Bloomberg Commodity Index Total Return, an index of futures contracts on 20 physical commodities. PCRIX collateralizes its futures positions with Treasury Inflation-Protected Securities (TIPS), which have inflation-linked coupons. The fund aims to provide a return that beats inflation over time.

Given the fund’s focus on real return after inflation, PCRIX makes for an ideal core position in a portfolio as the commodity anchor. The fund is managed by Pacific Investment Management Company.
