Fund objective
The sub-fund aims to provide long term total return by investing in a portfolio of Euro denominated high yielding bonds. The sub-fund invests (normally a minimum of 90% of its net assets) in Non-Investment Grade rated fixed income securities and other higher yielding securities (including unrated bonds) which are either issued by companies or issued or guaranteed by government, government agencies or supranational bodies in both developed markets, such as OECD countries, and Emerging Markets. These securities are denominated in Euro and, on an ancillary basis (normally up to 10% of the sub-fund's net assets), in other developed market currencies. The sub-fund may achieve its investment policy by investing up to 10% of its net assets in units or shares of UCITS and/or other Eligible UCIs (including other sub-funds of HSBC Global Investment Funds). On an ancillary basis, the sub-fund may achieve its investment policy by investing in financial derivative instruments. However, the subfund does not intend to invest in financial derivative instruments extensively for investment purposes and their primary use will be for hedging and efficient portfolio management, including purposes such as cash flow management and tactical asset allocation. Financial derivative instruments that the sub-fund may use include, but are not limited to foreign exchange forwards (including nondeliverable forwards), exchange-traded future options, foreign exchange options and swaptions, exchange traded futures and swaps (interest rate, credit default, inflation, total return and currency). Financial derivative instruments may also be embedded in other instruments used by the sub-fund (for example, participation notes and convertibles). The sub-fund's primary currency exposure is to the Euro. The sub-fund will normally hedge non-Euro currency exposures into Euro.The sub-fund may invest up to 15% of its net assets in contingent convertible securities, however this is not expected to exceed 10%.
