The fund aims to achieve income and capital appreciation by investing primarily in investment grade fixed income securities of issuers that have their principal business activities in the Asian region. This region includes certain countries considered to be emerging markets.
The fund is actively managed. The Investment Manager will, when selecting investments for the fund and for the purposes of monitoring risk, reference ICE BofA Asia Dollar Investment Grade Index (the Index) as the Index constituents best represent the characteristics the fund is seeking to gain exposure to. The funds performance can be assessed against its Index.
The Investment Manager has a wide range of discretion relative to the Index. While the fund will hold assets that are components of the Index, it may also invest in issuers, sectors, countries and security types that are not included in, and that have different weightings from the Index in order to take advantage of investment opportunities. It is expected that over long time periods, the funds performance will differ from the Index. However, over short time periods, the funds performance may be close to the Index, depending on market conditions.
The funds exposure to Distressed Securities is limited to 10% of its assets.
The fund may invest in hybrids and CoCos, as well as in other subordinated financial debt and preference shares.
