PIMCO's Assets Under Management Increase to $1.97 Trillion in Second Quarter

NEWPORT BEACH, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/11/14 -- PIMCO, a leading global investment management firm, announces that its assets under management increased to $1.97 trillion at the end of the second quarter, up from $1.94 trillion at March 31. Assets under management are up $53.2 billion year-to-date through June 30, 2014, up from $1.916 trillion as of December 31, 2013.

PIMCO's second quarter AUM increase was the result of market performance and PIMCO's alpha generation. Of the $1.97 trillion AUM at June 30, third-party client assets accounted for $1.55 trillion, up from $1.54 trillion at March 31.

"PIMCO continues to deliver what our clients have come to expect from us over the last 43 years -- alpha generation and robust risk management, backed by insightful investment commentary," said PIMCO Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Douglas Hodge.

In core bond strategies, PIMCO's Total Return Fund, Institutional Share Class, has outperformed its benchmark and the majority of its competitors over the last 3, 5 and 10 years and continues its long-term track record of outperforming 96% of its peers over the last 15 years, according to Morningstar. For the second quarter of 2014, the Fund delivered 2.37% in returns (net of fees).

Overall, 81% of PIMCO's assets under management have outperformed their benchmark on a trailing 12-month basis; 86% have outperformed their benchmark on a trailing 3-year basis; and 94% have outperformed their benchmark on a trailing 5-year basis (before fees).

"While performance matters, repeating it matters more. We remain intensely focused on our mission of managing risk and delivering returns for our clients," added Mr. Hodge.

Investing in the bond market is subject to risks, including market, interest rate, issuer, credit, inflation risk, and liquidity risk. The value of most bonds and bond strategies are impacted by changes in interest rates. Bonds and bond strategies with longer durations tend to be more sensitive and volatile than those with shorter durations; bond prices generally fall as interest rates rise, and the current low interest rate environment increases this risk. Current reductions in bond counterparty capacity may contribute to decreased market liquidity and increased price volatility. Bond investments may be worth more or less than the original cost when redeemed. Investing in foreign denominated and/or domiciled securities may involve heightened risk due to currency fluctuations, and economic and political risks, which may be enhanced in emerging markets. Mortgage and asset-backed securities may be sensitive to changes in interest rates, subject to early repayment risk, and their value may fluctuate in response to the market's perception of issuer creditworthiness; while generally supported by some form of government or private guarantee there is no assurance that private guarantors will meet their obligations. High-yield, lower-rated securities involve greater risk than higher-rated securities; portfolios that invest in them may be subject to greater levels of credit and liquidity risk than portfolios that do not. Derivatives may involve certain costs and risks such as liquidity, interest rate, market, credit, management and the risk that a position could not be closed when most advantageous. Investing in derivatives could lose more than the amount invested. Diversification does not ensure against loss.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
