Investment objective
To provide, over the long term, a high level of total return, of which a large component is current income. The Fund invests primarily in Emerging Market Bonds and corporate High Yield Bonds from around the world, denominated in USD and various national currencies (including Emerging Markets currencies). These are usually listed or traded on other Regulated Markets. Unlisted securities may also be purchased. In addition to the integration of Sustainability Risks as part of the Investment Adviser's investment decision-making process, the Investment Adviser aims to manage a carbon footprint lower than the Fund's selected index level as specified in the prospectus. The Investment Adviser also evaluates and applies ESG and norms-based screening to implement a negative screening policy relating to the Fund's investments in corporate issuers and sovereign issuers.

Risk profile

Synthetic Risk Indicator (SRI)

Lower riskHigher risk
The risk indicator assumes you keep the product for 5 years. The summary risk indicator is a guide to the level of risk of this product compared to other products. It shows how likely it is that the product will lose money because of movements in the markets or because we are not able to pay you. We have classified this product as 3 out of 7, which is a medium-low risk class. This figure rates the likelihood of losing money in the future, based on the Net Asset Value of this Share Class over the last ten years as a medium-low risk. Be aware of currency risk. If you select a foreign currency share class, you will be exposed to currency risk, receive payments in a different currency to your local currency and your final return will depend on the exchange rate between these two currencies. This risk is not considered in the indicator shown above.
