(Bloomberg) -- Pacific Investment Management Co., the firm that has been pushing into equities since 2009, is expanding its stock offerings by adding seven new strategies with Robert Arnott’s Research Affiliates.

The new mutual funds will cover big and small stocks from the U.S. and worldwide, including emerging markets, according to a statement today from Newport Beach, California-based Pimco and Research Affiliates. Arnott’s firm has developed an enhanced indexing methodology that picks and weights securities based on fundamental factors rather than market value.
