I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of the Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange proposes to reflect a change in the size of a Creation Unit applicable to shares of the PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund from 50,000 Shares to at least 20,000 Shares. The Fund is currently listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600. The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange’s Web site at www.nyse.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at the Commission’s Public Reference Room. II. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most significant parts of such statements. A. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Purpose of, and the Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change 1. Purpose The Commission has approved a proposed rule change relating to listing and trading on the Exchange of shares (‘‘Shares’’) of the PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund (‘‘Fund’’) under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600,4 which governs the listing and trading of Managed Fund Shares.5 The Shares are July 21, 2017. Pursuant to Section 19(b)(1) 1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the ‘‘Act’’) 2 and Rule 19b–4 thereunder,3 notice is hereby given that, on July 14, 2017, NYSE Arca, Inc. (the ‘‘Exchange’’ or ‘‘NYSE Arca’’) filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the ‘‘Commission’’) the proposed rule change as described in Items I and II below, which Items have been prepared by the self-regulatory organization.

The Fund’s Shares are currently listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600.7 According to the Registration Statement and the Prior Releases, Shares of the Fund that trade in the secondary market are created at net asset value (‘‘NAV’’) by Authorized Participants only in block-size Creation Units of 50,000 Shares or multiples thereof. The Exchange proposes to reflect a change in the size of a Creation Unit from 50,000 Shares to at least 20,000 Shares.8 The size of a Creation Unit will be subject to change. The Exchange believes that the change to the size of a Creation Unit will not adversely impact investors or Exchange trading. A reduction in the size of a Creation Unit may provide potential benefits to investors by facilitating additional creation and redemption activity in the Shares, thereby potentially resulting in increased secondary market trading activity, tighter bid/ask spreads and that invests in a portfolio of securities selected by its investment adviser consistent with its investment objectives and policies. In contrast, an open-end investment company that issues Investment Company Units, listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 5.2(j)(3), seeks to provide investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance of a specific foreign or domestic stock index, fixed income securities index or combination thereof. 6 The Trust is registered under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (‘‘1940 Act’’). On October 28, 2016, the Trust filed with the Commission the most recent post-effective amendment to its registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 77a) (‘‘1933 Act’’) and under the 1940 Act relating to the Fund (File Nos. 333–155395 and 811–22250) (the ‘‘Registration Statement’’). The description of the operation of the Trust and the Fund herein is based, in part, on the Registration Statement. A change to the name of the Fund from PIMCO Low Duration Exchange-Traded Fund to PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund was reflected in such amendment to the Registration Statement. In addition, the Commission has issued an order granting certain exemptive relief to the Trust under the 1940 Act. See Investment Company Act Release No. 28993 (November 10, 2009) (File No. 812–13571) (‘‘Exemptive Order’’). 7 The Trust implemented a change in the name of the Fund from PIMCO Low Duration ExchangeTraded Fund to PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund on October 31, 2014. 8 The change to size of a Creation Unit will be effective upon filing with the Commission of an amendment to the Trust’s Registration Statement on Form N–1A, and shareholders will be notified of such change by means of such amendment.

Except for the change noted above, all other representations made in the Prior Releases remain unchanged.10 The Fund will continue to comply with all initial and continued listing requirements under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600. The Adviser represents that the investment objective of the Fund is not changing. secondary market trading activity that may result from a decrease in the Creation Unit size for Shares of the Fund, will enhance competition among issues of exchange-traded funds that invest in fixed income securities. 2. Statutory Basis The basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is the requirement under Section 6(b)(5) 11 that an exchange have rules that are designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to, and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The proposed rule change is designed to perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Exchange believes that the change to the size of a Creation Unit to at least 20,000 Shares will not adversely impact investors or Exchange trading. In addition, a reduction in the size of a Creation Unit may provide potential benefits to investors by facilitating additional creation and redemption activity in the Shares, thereby potentially resulting in increased secondary market trading activity, tighter bid/ask spreads and narrower premiums or discounts to NAV. Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act 12 and Rule 19b– 4(f)(6) thereunder.13 At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or disapproved. B.

The Exchange believes the proposed rule change, because of the potential increase in 9 The Exchange notes that the Commission has approved the listing and trading of other issues of Managed Fund Shares that have applied a minimum Creation Unit size of 25,000 shares or greater.

I. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Terms of the 
Substance of the Proposed Rule Change

    The Exchange proposes to reflect a change in the size of a Creation 
Unit applicable to shares of the PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-
Traded Fund from 50,000 Shares to at least 20,000 Shares. The Fund is 
currently listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities 
Rule 8.600. The proposed rule change is available on the Exchange's Web 
site at www.nyse.com, at the principal office of the Exchange, and at 
the Commission's Public Reference Room.

II. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

    In its filing with the Commission, the self-regulatory organization 
included statements concerning the purpose of, and basis for, the 
proposed rule change and discussed any comments it received on the 
proposed rule change. The text of those statements may be examined at 
the places specified in Item IV below. The Exchange has prepared 
summaries, set forth in sections A, B, and C below, of the most 
significant parts of such statements.

A. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement of the Purpose of, and the 
Statutory Basis for, the Proposed Rule Change

1. Purpose
    The Commission has approved a proposed rule change relating to 
listing and trading on the Exchange of shares (``Shares'') of the PIMCO 
Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund (``Fund'') under NYSE Arca 
Equities Rule 8.600,\4\ which governs the listing and trading of 
Managed Fund Shares.\5\ The Shares are

[[Page 35020]]

offered by PIMCO ETF Trust (the ``Trust''), a statutory trust organized 
under the laws of the State of Delaware and registered with the 
Commission as an open-end management investment company.\6\ The 
investment manager to the Fund is Pacific Investment Management Company 
LLC (``PIMCO'' or the ``Adviser''). The Fund's Shares are currently 
listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
8.600.\7\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \4\ See Securities Exchange Act Release No. 70774 (October 30, 
2013), 78 FR 66396 (November 5, 2013) (SR-NYSEArca-2013-106) (notice 
of filing of proposed rule change relating to listing and trading of 
Shares of the Fund on the Exchange) (``Prior Notice''); 71125 
(December 18, 2013), 78 FR 77743 (December 24, 2013) (SR-NYSEArca-
2013-106) (order approving listing and trading of Shares of the Fund 
on the Exchange) (``Prior Order''). See also Securities Exchange Act 
Release No. 73331 (October 9, 2014), 79 FR 62213 (October 16, 2014) 
(SR-NYSEArca-2014-104) (order approving proposed rule change 
relating to use of derivatives by the Fund) (together with the Prior 
Order, ``Prior Releases'').
    \5\ A Managed Fund Share is a security that represents an 
interest in an investment company registered under the Investment 
Company Act of 1940 (15 U.S.C. 80a-1) (``1940 Act'') organized as an 
open-end investment company or similar entity that invests in a 
portfolio of securities selected by its investment adviser 
consistent with its investment objectives and policies. In contrast, 
an open-end investment company that issues Investment Company Units, 
listed and traded on the Exchange under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 
5.2(j)(3), seeks to provide investment results that correspond 
generally to the price and yield performance of a specific foreign 
or domestic stock index, fixed income securities index or 
combination thereof.
    \6\ The Trust is registered under the Investment Company Act of 
1940 (``1940 Act''). On October 28, 2016, the Trust filed with the 
Commission the most recent post-effective amendment to its 
registration statement under the Securities Act of 1933 (15 U.S.C. 
77a) (``1933 Act'') and under the 1940 Act relating to the Fund 
(File Nos. 333-155395 and 811-22250) (the ``Registration 
Statement''). The description of the operation of the Trust and the 
Fund herein is based, in part, on the Registration Statement. A 
change to the name of the Fund from PIMCO Low Duration Exchange-
Traded Fund to PIMCO Low Duration Active Exchange-Traded Fund was 
reflected in such amendment to the Registration Statement. In 
addition, the Commission has issued an order granting certain 
exemptive relief to the Trust under the 1940 Act. See Investment 
Company Act Release No. 28993 (November 10, 2009) (File No. 812-
13571) (``Exemptive Order'').
    \7\ The Trust implemented a change in the name of the Fund from 
PIMCO Low Duration Exchange-Traded Fund to PIMCO Low Duration Active 
Exchange-Traded Fund on October 31, 2014.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    According to the Registration Statement and the Prior Releases, 
Shares of the Fund that trade in the secondary market are created at 
net asset value (``NAV'') by Authorized Participants only in block-size 
Creation Units of 50,000 Shares or multiples thereof.
    The Exchange proposes to reflect a change in the size of a Creation 
Unit from 50,000 Shares to at least 20,000 Shares.\8\ The size of a 
Creation Unit will be subject to change. The Exchange believes that the 
change to the size of a Creation Unit will not adversely impact 
investors or Exchange trading. A reduction in the size of a Creation 
Unit may provide potential benefits to investors by facilitating 
additional creation and redemption activity in the Shares, thereby 
potentially resulting in increased secondary market trading activity, 
tighter bid/ask spreads and narrower premiums or discounts to NAV.\9\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \8\ The change to size of a Creation Unit will be effective upon 
filing with the Commission of an amendment to the Trust's 
Registration Statement on Form N-1A, and shareholders will be 
notified of such change by means of such amendment.
    \9\ The Exchange notes that the Commission has approved the 
listing and trading of other issues of Managed Fund Shares that have 
applied a minimum Creation Unit size of 25,000 shares or greater. 
See, e.g., Securities Exchange Act Release No. 74595 (March 27, 
2015), 80 FR 17795 (April 2, 2015) (SR-NYSEArca-2015-04) order 
approving listing and trading of shares of the Innovator IBD 50 Fund 
under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600).
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Adviser represents that the proposed change to reduce the size 
of a Creation Unit, as described above, is consistent with the Fund's 
investment objective, and will further assist the Adviser to achieve 
such investment objective. Except for the change noted above, all other 
representations made in the Prior Releases remain unchanged.\10\ The 
Fund will continue to comply with all initial and continued listing 
requirements under NYSE Arca Equities Rule 8.600.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \10\ See note 4, supra. All terms referenced but not defined 
herein are defined in the Prior Releases.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Adviser represents that the investment objective of the Fund is 
not changing.
2. Statutory Basis
    The basis under the Act for this proposed rule change is the 
requirement under Section 6(b)(5) \11\ that an exchange have rules that 
are designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices, 
to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove 
impediments to, and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market 
and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest.

    The proposed rule change is designed to perfect the mechanism of a 
free and open market and, in general, to protect investors and the 
public interest. The Exchange believes that the change to the size of a 
Creation Unit to at least 20,000 Shares will not adversely impact 
investors or Exchange trading. In addition, a reduction in the size of 
a Creation Unit may provide potential benefits to investors by 
facilitating additional creation and redemption activity in the Shares, 
thereby potentially resulting in increased secondary market trading 
activity, tighter bid/ask spreads and narrower premiums or discounts to 
NAV.

B. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Burden on Competition

    The Exchange does not believe that the proposed rule change will 
impose any burden on competition that is not necessary or appropriate 
in furtherance of the purpose of the Act. The Exchange believes the 
proposed rule change, because of the potential increase in secondary 
market trading activity that may result from a decrease in the Creation 
Unit size for Shares of the Fund, will enhance competition among issues 
of exchange-traded funds that invest in fixed income securities.

C. Self-Regulatory Organization's Statement on Comments on the Proposed 
Rule Change Received From Members, Participants, or Others

    No written comments were solicited or received with respect to the 
proposed rule change.

III. Date of Effectiveness of the Proposed Rule Change and Timing for 
Commission Action

    Because the foregoing proposed rule change does not: (i) 
Significantly affect the protection of investors or the public 
interest; (ii) impose any significant burden on competition; and (iii) 
become operative for 30 days from the date on which it was filed, or 
such shorter time as the Commission may designate, it has become 
effective pursuant to Section 19(b)(3)(A) of the Act \12\ and Rule 19b-
4(f)(6) thereunder.\13\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \12\ 15 U.S.C. 78s(b)(3)(A).
    \13\ 17 CFR 240.19b-4(f)(6). As required under Rule 19b-
4(f)(6)(iii), the Exchange provided the Commission with written 
notice of its intent to file the proposed rule change, along with a 
brief description and the text of the proposed rule change, at least 
five business days prior to the date of filing of the proposed rule 
change, or such shorter time as designated by the Commission.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    At any time within 60 days of the filing of the proposed rule 
change, the Commission summarily may temporarily suspend such rule 
change if it appears to the Commission that such action is necessary or 
appropriate in the public interest, for the protection of investors, or 
otherwise in furtherance of the purposes of the Act. If the Commission 
takes such action, the Commission shall institute proceedings to 
determine whether the proposed rule change should be approved or 
disapproved.
