Fund objective
The sub-fund invests for total return primarily in a diversified portfolio of Investment and Non-Investment Grade rated fixed income (e.g. bonds) securities including cash and convertible bonds. The sub-fund will seek to invest primarily in securities issued in the Asian markets and denominated in Asian currencies. At least 70% of the sub-fund's assets will be invested in securities denominated in Asian currencies. The sub-fund may also consider investments in securities denominated in OECD countries and other Emerging Markets currencies. The sub-fund may also invest in financial derivative instruments such as futures, forwards (including non-deliverable forwards) swaps (including, but not limited to, credit default swaps and Total Return Swaps), options as well as other structured products. The sub-fund intends to use such financial derivative instruments, inter alia, for return enhancement, hedging, tax-advantage access to instruments and whenever the Investment Adviser believes the investment in financial derivative instruments will assist the sub-fund in achieving its investment objectives.
