These documents contain important information including risk factors and details of charges.
The value of your investment and the income from it can go down as well as up, it may be affected by exchange rate variations, and you may not get back the amount invested. Past performance is no indication of current or future performance. Investment involves risks.
No information in this document should be interpreted as investment advice. You are advised to exercise caution. If you are in any doubt about any of the contents of this document, you should obtain independent professional advice. This webpage is for information only and is not an offer to sell or an invitation to buy.

Any holdings and stock examples are used for illustrative purposes only and should not be viewed as investment advice.

• Investment risk – while the Fund aims to deliver above zero performance irrespective of market conditions, there can be no guarantee this aim will be achieved.
Furthermore, the actual volatility of the Fund may be above or below the expected range, and may also exceed its maximum expected volatility. A capital loss of some or all of the amount invested may occur.
• Emerging markets risk – less developed countries may face more political, economic or structural challenges than developed countries.
• Credit risk – the issuer of a bond or a similar investment within the Fund may not pay income or repay capital to the Fund when due. Bonds which are rated below investment grade are considered to have a higher risk exposure with respect to meeting their payment obligations.
• CoCos and other investments with loss absorbing features – the Fund may hold investments with loss-absorbing features, including up to 20% in contingent convertible bonds (CoCos). These investments may be subject to regulatory intervention and/or specific trigger events relating to regulatory capital levels falling to a pre-specified point. This is a different risk to traditional bonds and may result in their conversion to company shares, or a partial or total loss of value.
• Bond Connect Risk – The rules of the Bond Connect scheme may not always permit the Fund to sell its assets, and may cause the Fund to suffer losses on an investment.
• Interest rate risk – investments in bonds are affected by interest rates and inflation trends which may affect the value of the Fund.
• Liquidity risk – some investments may become hard to value or sell at a desired time and price. In extreme circumstances this may affect the Fund’s ability to meet redemption requests upon demand.
• Derivative risk – the Fund uses derivatives to generate returns and/or to reduce costs and the overall risk of the Fund. Using derivatives can involve a higher level of risk. A small movement in the price of an underlying investment may result in a disproportionately large movement in the price of the derivative investment. Derivatives also involve counterparty risk where the institutions acting as counterparty to derivatives may not meet their contractual obligations.
• Currency risk – the Fund can be exposed to different currencies. The value of your shares may rise and fall as a result of exchange rate movements.
• The Fund may be more than 35% invested in Government and public securities. These can be issued by other countries and Governments. Your attention is drawn to the stated investment policy which is set out in the Fund’s prospectus.
