Fund Objective

The Fund aims to maximise the return on your investment through a combination of capital growth and income on the Fund's assets. The Fund invests at least 70% of its total assets in fixed income securities, which have a relatively low credit rating or are unrated, issued by governments and agencies of, or companies domiciled in, or exercising the predominant part of their economic activity in the Asia Pacific region. The Fund may invest in the full range of fixed income securities which may include investments with a relatively low credit rating or which are unrated. These include bonds and money market instruments (i.e. debt securities with short term maturities). The Asia Pacific region refers to the countries in the Asian continent and the surrounding Pacific islands including Australia and New Zealand but excluding Japan. Many of these countries are developing countries. The investment adviser (IA) may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) (i.e. investments the prices of which are based on one or more underlying assets) for investment purposes in order to achieve the investment objective of the Fund, and/or to reduce risk within the Fund’s portfolio, reduce investment costs and generate additional income. The Fund may, via FDIs, generate varying amounts of market leverage (i.e. where the Fund gains market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). The Fund is actively managed, and the IA has discretion to select the Fund's investments. In doing so, the IA will refer to the ICE BofAML Blended Index: ACCY, 20% LvI4 Cap 3% Constrained Index (the “Index”) when constructing the Fund’s portfolio, and also 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 Fund’s investment objective and policy. The IA is not bound by the components or weighting of the Index when selecting investments. The IA may also use its discretion to invest in securities not included in the Index in order to take advantage of specific investment opportunities. However, the geographical scope and credit rating requirements 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 investors to compare the performance of the Fund. 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).
