Pimco All Asset’s subadvisor Research Affiliates employs an unconstrained, systematic, valuation-based process to asset allocation and employs a similar approach for many of its underlying equity and alternative strategies. By tilting toward niche areas and deep-value assets, the fund can exhibit prolonged periods of risk-adjusted underperformance, making it difficult to hold for the long term. We are downgrading its Process rating to Average. With this change, its Morningstar Analyst Rating falls to Neutral across the fund’s share classes.
