Analyst Report

This ETF offers a way for investors to access one of the most successful bond fund managers of all time, as BOND (formerly known as TRXT) is essentially an exchange-traded version of PIMCO's Total Return mutual fund. Benchmarked against the Barclays Capital U.S. Aggregate Index, BOND will generally contain a broad-based basket of investment grade U.S. debt securities. As such, BOND will likely have appeal as a core holding in many long-term, buy-and-hold portfolios. There are several ETFs that seek to passively replicate the index against which BOND is benchmarked; funds such as BND, AGG, LAG, and SCHZ might be more appealing options for those who believe that active managers are not able to consistently generate alpha over the long term. It should be noted that BOND charges about 45 basis points more in annual fees than the cheapest of those ETFs, meaning that the PIMCO fund must beat its benchmark by close to 55 basis points annually to justify the higher fees.
