Fund objective
The sub-fund invests for long term total return in a portfolio of Emerging Markets local currency bonds, foreign exchange forwards and other similar securities. The sub-fund invests (normally a minimum of 90% of its net assets) in Investment Grade and Non-Investment Grade fixed income securities and other similar securities, as well as currency forwards and non-deliverable forwards. The fixed income securities are issued or guaranteed by governments, government agencies or supranational bodies of Emerging Markets or issued by companies which are based in or carry out the larger part of their business activities in Emerging Markets. All the instruments are primarily denominated in or linked to Emerging Markets currencies. For collateral management purposes and to support offsetting exposures in Emerging Markets instruments, the sub-fund may also invest in developed markets cash and cash instruments. The sub-fund may achieve its investment policy and limits by investing up to 10% of its net assets in units or shares of UCITS and/or other open-ended funds (including other sub-funds of HSBC Global Investment Funds). The sub-fund may also invest in additional financial derivative instruments such as futures, swaps, options, credit default swaps, as well as other structured products. The sub-fund intends to use such financial derivative instruments for, inter alia, 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. The sub-fund's currency exposure is to Emerging Markets currencies. On an ancillary basis (normally up to 10% of its net assets), the sub-fund may also invest in securities denominated in US dollar and/or currencies of other developed markets. The average maturity of the sub-fund is normally between 4 and 8 years.
