Fund objective
The aim of the Fund is to provide income with the potential to grow the amount you invested. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its assets in bonds (which are similar to a loan and pay a fixed or variable interest rate) that are priced in US Dollars or Asian currencies other than Japanese Yen and issued by governments and companies in Asia (with the exclusion of Japan), or companies that have significant operations in such countries. When appropriate, the Fund may also invest in currencies, including non-Asian currencies. The Fund invests directly in these assets or by using derivatives. Derivatives are sophisticated investment instruments linked to the rise and fall of the price of other assets. Derivatives will be used to obtain, increase or reduce exposure to underlying assets and may create gearing. Where gearing is created, the net asset value of the Fund may experience more fluctuation than if there were no gearing. The Fund may also invest in asset classes and instruments different from those stated above.
