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) and related derivatives (investments whose value is linked to the price of the underlying asset) issued primarily by governments and companies in emerging markets that are bought in the local currency. Emerging markets are countries considered to have social or business activity in the process of rapid growth. The Fund will invest up to 80 per cent of its assets in fixed income securities issued by or guaranteed by governments, and companies which may conduct much of their business in emerging markets. More than 30 per cent of the Fund may be invested in assets with low credit ratings. Derivatives may be used for investment purposes.
