The Fund aims to achieve growth on your investment. The Fund mainly invests in fixed income securities (investments which provide a certain level of income or interest) issued mainly by governments and companies in Asia or whose primary business is in Asia. The Fund will invest in investment grade (seen as being higher quality) fixed income securities. The Fund may also invest in fixed income securities with low or no credit rating. The Fund may invest more than 20 per cent of its assets in companies in emerging markets or whose business is predominantly based in emerging markets. Emerging markets are countries considered to have social or business activity in the process of rapid growth.
