Fund Objective

The Fund aims to provide income and grow your investment. The Fund invests in fixed income securities (investments which provide a certain level of income or interest) issued primarily by governments and companies in Emerging Markets. Emerging markets are countries considered to have social or business activity in the process of rapid growth. The majority of investments in the Fund will be in US Dollars. The Fund aims to reduce the effect of currency changes by hedging the US Dollar investments. More than 30 per cent of the Fund may be invested in assets with low credit ratings. Derivatives may be used for efficient portfolio management.
