What are the Key Risks?

The value of shares in the Fund and income received from it can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the full amount invested. Performance may also be affected by currency fluctuations. Currency fluctuations may affect the value of overseas investments.

  • The Fund invests mainly in debt securities of any quality from issuers of both developed and emerging countries. Such securities have historically been subject to price movements, generally due to interest rates, foreign exchange rates or movements in the bond market. As a result, the performance of the Fund can fluctuate moderately over time.
  • The Fund may distribute income gross of expenses. Whilst this might allow more income to be distributed, it may also have the effect of reducing capital.
  • Other significant risks include: credit risk, derivatives risk, emerging markets risk, liquidity risk.
