Introduction

The fund aims to provide income and some capital growth over the longer term by investing predominantly in bonds issued or guaranteed by governments, financial institutions or companies in emerging markets. The majority of the fund will be invested in bonds denominated in US Dollars and who may invest a proportion of the fund’s assets in other bonds, derivatives and/or money market instruments to try to take advantage of opportunities they have identified. Please note the operating currency of the fund is US Dollars, and the base currency is Sterling. The currency risk arising from this difference is not routinely hedged. The fund aims to invest mainly in bonds and assets denominated in US Dollars but may, at the discretion of the Manager, invest in bonds and assets denominated in other currencies (including emerging market currencies). Bonds and assets held in currencies other than the operating currency will be hedged at the discretion of the Manager, meaning some additional active currency risk may be taken against the operating currency. Past performance is not a guide to future returns and future returns are not guaranteed. The price of assets and the income from them may go down as well as up and cannot be guaranteed; an investor may receive back less than their original investment. The fund may use derivatives to reduce risk or cost, or to generate additional capital or income at low risk, or to meet its investment objective. Usage of derivatives is monitored to ensure that the fund is not exposed to excessive or unintended risks. The value of assets held within the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
