Fund Objective

The objective of this fund is to provide income by investing between 70% and 100% in emerging market government bonds (a type of loan which pays interest) included in the JPMorgan Emerging Markets Bond Index Plus. The fund’s investments will consist of a wide range of those that make up the Index. The Index consists of bonds which are issued in US Dollars by governments of developing countries. The bonds that the fund invests in will be a mixture of both sub-investment grade and investment grade bonds. The mix will closely match that of the Index. Investment and sub-investment grade bonds are bonds that have been given a credit rating by a rating agency. Credit ratings give an indication of how likely it is that the issuer of a bond will be able to pay back interest and the loan on time. Sub-investment grade bonds are rated as higher risk and investment grade bonds are rated as lower risk. The fund may use derivatives (contracts which have a value linked to the price of another asset) to: • reduce risk or cost; or • generate additional capital or income with no, or an acceptably low, level of risk. The fund may also invest in other bonds, deposits, money market instruments and cash. Money market instruments are a type of security where cash can be deposited for short periods of time. If you hold accumulation units, income from investments held by the fund (interest) will be reinvested into the value of your units. If you hold distribution units, income from investments held by the fund will be paid out to you every six months (as interest). You can buy or sell units in this fund on any working day. You need to contact us with your instruction before 12 noon. This is the time we calculate unit prices for this fund. If you contact us after 12 noon, the units will be bought or sold at the next working day's price. This fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within five years. This fund may be appropriate if youwould like to build on an existing portfolio and are looking for a fundthat provides exposure to markets which may experience higherreturns as well as higher levels of volatility than more developedmarkets.
