Investment Objective

To achieve a high level of income by investing at least 80% of the Fund’s assets in US dollar denominated bonds and mortgage-backed securities (“MBS”) issued or guaranteed by the US Government, its agencies or instrumentalities.

Nature and Extent of Risks

Investment involves risks. Please refer to the offering document for details including the risk factors.
1. Investment Risks
The Fund is an investment fund. The Fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value due to any of the risk factors below and therefore your investment in the Fund may suffer losses.
2. Risks Associated with Investments in ABS and MBS
The obligations associated with these securities may be subject to greater credit, liquidity and interest rate risk compared to other fixed income securities such as government issued bonds.
ABS and MBS are often exposed to extension risk (where obligations in the underlying assets are not paid on time) and prepayment risks (where obligations on the underlying assets are paid earlier than expected). These risks may have a substantial impact on the timing and size of the cashflows paid by the securities and may negatively impact the returns of the securities.
3. Credit Risks
The Fund may be exposed to the credit/default risk of bonds that it invests in. In the event of bankruptcy or default of an issuer, the Fund may experience losses and incur costs.
The actual or perceived downgrading of a rated debt security or its issuers could decrease its value and liquidity, and may have an adverse impact on the Fund, however, the Fund may continue to hold it to avoid a distressed sale.
4. Interest Rate Risks
An increase in interest rates may adversely affect the value of the bonds held by the Fund.
5. Sovereign Debt Risks
Investment in bonds issued or guaranteed by governments or authorities may involve political, economic, default, or other risks, which may in turn have an adverse impact on the Fund. Due to these factors, the sovereign issuers may not be able or willing to repay the principal and/or interest when due.
Holders of defaulting sovereign debt may be requested to participate in the restructuring of such debt. In addition, there may be limited legal recourses available against the sovereign issuer in case of or delay in repayment.
6. Capital Growth Risks
Risks Associated with Income-generating Investment Strategy
The Fund pursues an investment strategy in order to generate income which may reduce the potential for capital growth and future income of the Fund.
7. Currency Risks
The Fund may invest in assets denominated in a currency other than the base currency of the Fund. Changes in exchange rates between such currency and the base currency and changes in exchange rate controls may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s assets.
8. Delayed Delivery Transactions Risks
TBAs may involve counterparty default risk and a risk that the agreed (fixed) price is higher than the prevailing market price at the settlement date. These may have an adverse impact on the value of the Fund.
9. Derivatives Risks
Risks associated with derivatives include counterparty/credit risk, liquidity risk, valuation risk, volatility risk and market risk. The leverage effect of derivatives can result in a loss significantly greater than the amount invested and extensive exposure to derivatives may lead to a significant loss by the Fund.
The Fund may have commitment leverage of more than 100% of its net asset value. This may magnify the potential impact of any negative change in the value of underlying assets on the Fund and may also increase the volatility of the Fund’s price and may lead to significant losses.
Certain derivatives such as derivatives on currencies, inflation and indices may be uncorrelated with the underlying securities held by the Fund. In this regard the Fund may suffer significant losses notwithstanding that there may be no loss in respect of the underlying securities positions (predominantly fixed income securities) held by the Fund.
10. Geographical Concentration Risks
The Fund’s investments are concentrated in the US. This may result in greater volatility than more broad-based investments. The value of the Fund may be more susceptible to adverse economic, political, policy, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal or regulatory event affecting the US.
11. Securities Lending Risks
When engaging in securities lending, the Fund will have a credit risk exposure to the counterparties to any securities lending contract. Fund investments can be lent to counterparties over a period of time. A default by the counterparty combined with a fall in the value of the collateral below that of the value of the securities lent may result in a reduction in the value of the Fund.
