PIMCO Long-Term Credit Bond Instl (PTCIX) is down -30.16% YTD 

Have you suffered investment losses in PIMCO Long-Term Credit Bond Instl (PTCIX) at the advice of your financial advisor? If so, the securities attorneys at the White Law Group may be able to help you. 

According to the Wall Street Journal, this is the worst bond market since 1842. Why? Because when interest rates go up, bond prices go down.  To make matters worse, rates started at such low levels and the increase has been dramatic. The federal reserve increased the interest rate again in September to 3% and 3.25%. (In May it was 0.75% to 1.00%). Rates were raised by 0.5% on May 4, 2022 and more increases are anticipated in the months ahead. 

More problematic are long term duration bond funds because the longer the maturity of the bond the greater the decrease. Many bond investors are unaware of this risk and assume that their bond investments are their “safe” investments. 

PIMCO Long-Term Credit Bond Instl (PTCIX), an open-end fund managed by Pacific Investment Management Company, has the objective of growth and income. Unfortunately, since the fund invests in long-duration bonds, it is exposed to credit risk associated with an increase in interest rates. According to Morningstar, PIMCO Long-Term Credit Bond Instl (PTCIX) is currently down –30.16% YTD.
