PIMCO LLC - Details

Company profile:

PIMCO LLC was founded in Newport Beach, California in 1971 and is a global investment solutions provider. PIMCO started as a subsidiary of Pacific Life Insurance Company managing institutional separately managed fixed income accounts. In 2000, PIMCO was acquired by Allianz SE, a large global financial services company based in Germany with the agreement that it would be able to operate as a separate and autonomous subsidiary. As of March 31, 2022, PIMCO managed $2.05 trillion in assets under management with more than 3,145 dedicated professionals in 14 countries. While primarily known as one of the world’s largest fixed income managers, PIMCO also manages a broad range of strategies across different asset classes including alternatives, equities, and real assets.

PIMCO’s insurance-linked securities platform was launched in June 2019 with ILS assets growing to $775 million across ILS-dedicated strategies and multi-asset accounts (as of June 30 2022).


PIMCO’s platform seeks to capitalize on both the established global (re)insurance franchise of Allianz and the independent portfolio management capabilities of PIMCO’s experienced ILS investment team. PIMCO’s strategies focus predominantly on natural catastrophe perils across the full spectrum of insurance linked instruments, emphasizing diversification across underlying peril, geography, issuer, and attachment point.

PIMCO currently manages dedicated ILS funds with varying risk and return objectives. PIMCO’s ILS investment team also serves as a specialist desk for other PIMCO funds allocating to insurance-linked investments.
