Investment objective

This fund seeks to deliver an attractive income whilst maintaining an average duration of investments that does not exceed three years. The fund primarily invests in a portfolio of global fixed income securities, including, but not limited to, investment grade corporate bonds and government bonds of varying maturities, and high yield bonds and emerging market debt denominated in various currencies. Emerging market debt may include investments within, although not limited to, Latin America, South East Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe (including Russia) and the Middle East. The fund may invest into Money Market Instruments and/or other short term debt instruments including certificates of deposit, commercial paper and floating rate notes, as well as in cash and cash equivalents. The fund may invest its net assets directly in onshore China fixed income securities listed or traded on any Eligible Market in China. The portfolio seeks to maintain an overall average credit rating of investment grade1 but the fund may invest up to 50% of its assets in high yield bonds. Portfolio information: The average credit rating is the weighted average of all fixed income securities’ credit ratings in the fund (including investments through derivatives) and excluding cash. At least 50% of the portfolio will be invested in investment grade1 fixed income securities, with the balance invested in, but not limited to, high yielding debt securities, which normally carry sub-investment grade ratings and emerging market debt. Such balance will not be required to meet minimum credit rating standards. Not all securities will be rated for creditworthiness by an internationally recognized rating agency. The manager is not restricted in his choice of companies either by region or country, and will choose bonds largely determined by the availability of attractive investment opportunities. Onshore China fixed income securities are listed or traded on any Eligible Market in China, and are issued by a variety of issuers such as government, quasigovernment, banks, financial institutions or other corporate entities established or incorporated in China or corporate entities with commercial activities in China.

All fund prices quoted are calculated as at the latest valuation date. The performance information (%) in the chart and table may have slight variances due to factors such as rounding, or charting methodology used.

Past performance information is not indicative of future performance. Investors may not get back the full amount invested. Calculation of performance is based on the NAV-to-NAV for the stated period, with dividend reinvested, in denominated currency. These figures show by how much the share class increased or decreased in value during the stated period. Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that period to calculate performance.

Performance has been calculated in the “Denominated currency” set out in the “About this fund” section in the “Fund details” tab, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee and redemption fee you may have to pay.

Payments of dividends out of capital will only be made to seek to maintain a stable payment per share but the payment per share is not fixed. Dividend yield of the fund does not represent the return of the fund, and past dividend yield does not represent future dividend yield. The dividends are not guaranteed.
