PIMCO could be facing a federal lawsuit over how the company valued positions held by one of its bond funds. PIMCO received a Wells notice from the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) about some of its securities that contained bundled mortgages. A Wells notice is a letter that the SEC sends to firms when it is planning to bring an enforcement action against them. The SEC alleges that between February 29th and June 30th 2012, PIMCO misrepresented the value of certain securities purchased by its Total Return Active Exchange-Traded Fund (BOND). The ETF has more than $2.5 billion net assets and invests in low-risk debt securities. Exchange-Traded Funds are marketable securities that track an index, a commodity, bonds or a basket of assets. They commonly trade on a stock exchange and experience price changes throughout the day as they are bought and sold. They are alternative investments that may not be suitable for most investors, based on their portfolio, net worth, age and investment sophistication.
