The Fund's investment objective is to achieve a positive return over a market cycle, typically three to five years, by investing at least two thirds of the Fund's assets in Debt and Debt-Related Securities which are issued by governments or government-related bodies domiciled in an Emerging Market country. There can be no assurance that a positive return will be achieved over any time period. The Fund will not be constrained by a traditional benchmark and has the flexibility to seek opportunities across the full range of Debt and Debt-Related Securities. In times of extreme market stress and increased volatility, the Investment Manager may deviate from the above mentioned limits by increasing allocations to developed market securities with a view to reducing portfolio risk and volatility. The Fund may utilise financial derivative instruments for hedging and/or investment purposes, or to manage foreign exchange risks, subject to the conditions and within the limits laid down by applicable laws and regulations. Without limiting the generality of the foregoing, the Investment Manager may alter the currency exposure of the Fund, solely through the use of derivative contracts (without buying or selling underlying Transferable Securities or currencies). Furthermore, the Fund's portfolio may be fully or partially hedged back to the Base Currency if, in the opinion of the Investment Manager, this is believed to be appropriate. The Fund is actively managed. The FTSE World Government Bond US Index (USD) benchmark before charges is used to assess the performance of the Fund but is not used for portfolio construction or for the purpose of setting risk constraints. The Fund's investment exposures and returns may differ significantly from the benchmark. The Investment Manager will seek to reduce the risk of losses and the expected change (as measured by annual volatility) in the value of the Fund is not ordinarily expected to exceed 7.5%. Where Share Classes are denominated in a currency other than the Base Currency of the Fund, a currency specific benchmark will typically be used for performance comparison purposes. This will either be the benchmark of the Fund expressed in another currency or a different currency specific benchmark with similar characteristics. Benchmarks applicable to such Share Classes are disclosed in the relevant KIID.
