Investment objective summary

The Fund aims to provide income and long-term capital growth.

The Fund invests primarily in bonds (contracts to repay borrowed money which typically pay interest at fixed times) and in related derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of an underlying asset). These bonds are issued by governments, institutions or companies in emerging markets (countries that are in economic terms less developed than the major Western countries) predominantly in the currency of the issuing country. The Fund also has the flexibility to invest outside of the aforementioned asset classes and markets.

Derivatives may be used for investment purposes (i.e. in order to achieve the Fund’s investment objectives) or for efficient portfolio management purposes e.g. with the aim of either managing the Fund risks or reducing the costs of managing the Fund.

The index used in the performance section is deemed to be a good representation of the Fund’s investable universe and is widely used, independently calculated and readily available. Fund performance can also be compared to the IA sector average. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to facilitate comparison between funds with broadly similar characteristics.
