The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Funds assets. The Fund is actively managed, and the investment adviser (IA) has discretion to select the Fund's investments, provided that the Fund will invest at least 70% of its total assets in fixed income (FI) securities within the J.P. Morgan ESG Emerging Market Bond Index Global Diversified (the "Index" and the securities comprised within it being "Index Securities") which comprises FI securities issued by governments and government agencies of, and companies domiciled in, or the main business of which is in, emerging markets. The Fund will also refer to the Index for risk management purposes to ensure that the active risk (i.e. degree of deviation from the Index) taken by the Fund remains appropriate given the Funds investment objective and policy. The IA is not bound by the weighting of the Index when selecting Index Securities. The geographical scope and the environmental, social and governance (ESG) requirements (described below) of the investment objective and policy may have the effect of limiting the extent to which the portfolio holdings will deviate from the Index. The Index should be used by unitholders to compare the performance of the Fund. When selecting Index Securities, and FI securities forming part of the remaining 30% of the Funds portfolio, the IA will, in addition to other investment criteria, take into account and analyse the ESG characteristics of the relevant issuer using data provided by external ESG score providers, proprietary models and local intelligence. The Fund may obtain indirect exposure (through, including but not limited to, financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) and units in collective investment schemes) to securities which may not satisfy these ESG criteria. The FI securities in which the Fund invests may include bonds and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities) which may be investment grade (i.e. meet a specified level of credit worthiness), non-investment grade or unrated. Investments in high yield FI securities are expected to exceed 50% of the Funds net asset value. The IA may use FDIs to help achieve the Funds investment objective and to reduce risk within the Funds portfolio. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The IA will also use instruments for the management of currency exposure and exposure to interest rates. Such instruments may be denominated in non-emerging market currencies. Recommendation: This Fund may not be appropriate for short-term investment. Your shares will be non-distributing (i.e. dividend income will be included in their value).
