TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 10/02/13 -- PIMCO Canada Corp., the manager of the PIMCO Canada Funds, has decided to terminate the PIMCO Canadian Long Term Bond Fund, effective December 6, 2013. PIMCO Canada will send a notice to each investor in the Fund regarding the termination. Investors may redeem or switch their units of the Fund for settlement on or prior to the termination date.
The decision to terminate the Fund was driven by a combination of the small number of unitholders and small asset size.
From October 7, 2013, PIMCO Canada will waive any redemption fees, sales charges or short-term trading fees for redemptions of units of the Fund. The Fund is closed to new purchases.
