Potential significant risks
Bonds that produce a higher level of income usually also carry greater risk as such bond issuers may have difficulty in paying their debts. Emerging markets or less developed countries may face more political, economic or structural challenges than developed countries.
The fund aims to provide a combination of income and growth through investing principally in a broad range of debt securities with fixed or variable rates of income. A discretionary (unconstrained) approach combining a thematic top-down macro view with fundamental bottom-up selections. The portfolio will use both cash bonds and fixed income-related derivatives to dynamically adjust strategic positions of shorter-term market movements.
