Fund Objective

The Fund's investment objective is to achieve income by investing at least two-thirds of the Fund's assets in Debt and Debt-Related Securities which are (i) issued by governments or government related bodies domiciled in a Frontier Debt Market and/or issued by corporations (including holding companies of such corporations) with their registered office, principal place of business or preponderance of their business activities in a Frontier Debt Market; and/or (ii) denominated in the currency of a Frontier Debt Market as at the date of investment. At least a majority of the Fund will at all times be invested in Sub-Investment Grade Debt and Debt-Related Securities. 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 Fund does not aim to outperform any benchmark and there is no benchmark used as a reference for portfolio construction. The NEXGEM Index (USD) is used as a basis for setting risk constraints. The Investment Manager seeks to reduce the risk of significant changes in the value of the Fund compared to the Index. The potential change in value of the Fund (as measured by expected volatility) is not ordinarily expected to exceed 150% of the potential change in value of the Index over the longer term. The NEXGEM Index (USD) consists of USD sovereign and quasi sovereign bonds, and is a market-capitalization weighted index that has historically been skewed to handful of large issuers. Index inclusion criteria is based on countries that have less than a 2% weight in the Emerging Market Bond Index Global Diversified Index. There are also a number of countries that demonstrate equivalent economic characteristics of countries in the J.P. Morgan Next Generation Markets Index such as countries that the IMF identifies as low income countries (LICs), that are not included in the NEXGEM that we view as candidates for the Frontier Market Bond Fund.
