Fund objective
The actively managed fund gains currency exposure as its major return driver by investing in unhedged bonds in markets from smaller developed higher-quality countries. The fund carefully selects within the investment universe of money market instruments, government and quasi-government bonds, and opportunistically adds high-quality corporate bonds (rating A or higher). The fund portfolio’s average remaining maturity usually lies between 1 and 3 years.
