3 pg 2 36456 Invited speakers provided fresh perspectives

4 pg 3 36456 PIMCO’s 2014 secular outlook Slow and stable global growth Global economy will deliver slower but increasingly stable growth and experience low inflation. Multi-speed country growth Countries will continue to grow at varying speeds but rates will converge. For example, U.S. growth will accelerate while growth in China and the rest of EM will slow. Persistently low policy rates Record high global debt and slower growth will constrain central bankers, keeping policy rates below historical averages (2% nominal will be the New Neutral rate in the U.S.). Shifting risk/return profile Major market returns will be lower (5% for stocks, 3% for bonds with the 10-year Treasury between 2.5% and 4%) but so will downside risk and the potential for market bubbles. Refer to the Appendix for additional forecast, outlook and risk information.

8 pg 7 36456 PIMCO’s 2014 secular outlook: investment implications Maintain diversification In a low rate environment, bonds will continue to be a natural diversifier for equity risk. Be selective Favor active managers who employ bottom-up research to identify countries, sectors and companies growing faster than the economy. Think outside the box Go beyond traditional asset classes to boost return potential, including unconstrained and alternative asset strategies. Take calculated risk Downside risk is lower than many investors expect, suggesting that yields, credit spreads and P/E ratios may not be overvalued. Look to mispriced markets Pursue opportunities in mispriced sovereign bond markets (where the market has overestimated rate hikes). Refer to the Appendix for additional forecast, outlook and risk information.

10 pg 9 36456 Appendix Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. FORECAST Forecasts, estimates and certain information contained herein are based upon proprietary research and should not be considered as investment advice or a recommendation of any particular security, strategy or investment product. OUTLOOK Statements concerning financial market trends or portfolio strategies are based on current market conditions, which will fluctuate. There is no guarantee that these investment strategies will work under all market conditions or are suitable for all investors and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest for the long term, especially during periods of downturn in the market. Outlook and strategies are subject to change without notice. RISK All investments contain risk and may lose value. Absolute return portfolios may not fully participate in strong positive market rallies. 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. Equities may decline in value due to both real and perceived general market, economic and industry conditions. 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.
