Introduction

The fund aims to generate income and growth over the long term by investing in bonds. It will seek to achieve this objective primarily through investment in US Dollar denominated interest bearing securities including sovereign and supranational issued bonds as well as sub-investment grade bonds, all issued by Asian, Eastern European, Middle Eastern, African or Latin American countries. All Sovereign and Supranational bonds will meet our internal sustainable and responsible criteria with a screening process which has been designed to incorporate Environment, Social, Governance and Political factors. In addition, the fund may hold sovereign bonds and other bonds issued in non-emerging market countries around the world that meet this criteria, as well as derivative instruments. The fund may also invest in funds (including those managed by Aberdeen Standard Investments) and money-market instruments including cash on an ancillary basis.The fund is actively managed by the investment team who seek to take advantage of opportunities they have identified through direct investment or derivatives. The fund's holdings will typically consist of individual bonds but derivatives (including bond futures, interest rate, inflation and credit default swaps as well as currency forwards) may be used to gain or reduce (hedge) exposure and seek investment gains. 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 overseas assets held in the fund may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate fluctuations.
