Fund objective
The investment objective of the sub-fund is to generate long-term capital growth and high returns. The sub-fund invests primarily in bonds (including zero-coupon bonds), short-term debt securities and similar debt instruments, using a balanced investment strategy designed to maintain a rating of at least BB for the sub-fund as a whole. These financial instruments are issued or guaranteed by sovereign borrowers in emerging economies: particularly central banks, government authorities and regional banks, as well as corporate borrowers domiciled in emerging markets. Our investment managers employ a high-conviction, active investment strategy supported by a reliable risk management framework.
