Investment Objective

It is actively managed and as such may invest in securities that are not included in the index which is JPM EMBI Global diversified (RI) (50%) +JPMGBI-EM Global Diversified (RI) (50%)

Nature and Extent of Risks

Investment involves risks. Please refer to the offering document for details including the risk factors.
1. Derivative Risk
1.1The sub-fund may enter into financial derivative instruments (“FDIs”) extensively for investment and hedging purposes. The use of FDIs may involve risks including:
- the counterparty to the derivative transaction is unable to meet or defaults on its obligations;
- high volatility of derivatives;
- the incorrect valuation or pricing of derivatives;
- the degree of leverage inherent in trading of derivatives. Accordingly, a relatively small price movement in derivatives may result in an immediate and substantial loss to the sub-fund;
- the possible absence of a liquid market for any particular instrument at any particular time; and
- the success of the sub-fund’s a liquid strategy will depend, in part, upon the investment manager’s ability to assess correctly the degree of correlation between the performance of the instruments used in the hedging strategy and the performance of the portfolio investments being hedged.
1.2 Should the use of FDIs for investment and hedging be ineffective or unsuccessful, the sub-fund may
suffer a substantial loss, having an adverse effect on its net asset value.
2. Emerging Market Risk
- The sub-fund may invest in emerging markets (examples of emerging markets include China, India, Indonesia, Korea etc.). Investing in emerging markets is likely to be subject to a higher than average volatility, less liquidity and greater sensitivity than investing in more developed markets due to, among other factors, greater uncertainty, greater political, tax, economic, social, foreign exchange, liquidity and regulatory risks. The price fluctuations of the investments are often amplified in the short term and the value of investments of the sub-fund may go down.
3. Interest Rate Risk
- The value of an investment may be affected by interest rate fluctuations. Interest rates may be influenced by several elements or events, such as monetary policy, the discount rate, inflation, etc. An increase in interest rates may result in a decrease in the value of investments in bonds and debt instruments and the value of investments of the sub-fund may go down.
4.Credit Risk
- The ability of bond issuer to honour its commitments depends on the financial condition of the issuer. An adverse change in the financial condition of the issuer could lower the quality of the bonds, leading to greater price volatility of the bonds. The sub-fund may subject to the risk that the bond issuer not making payment on interest and principal of the bonds, causing the value of the investment to go down.
- In the event of the default of bond issuer, the sub-fund may experience both delays in liquidating the bonds and losses including a decline in value of the bonds during the period when the sub-fund seeks to enforce its rights.
- Downgrades of a rating of bond issue or issuer may lead to a drop in the value of bonds in which the subfund has invested. Such bonds may have less liquidity, making it more difficult to sell and their values may be more volatile.
5. Counterparty Risk
- This risk is associated with the ability of a counterparty in a financial transaction to fulfil its commitments like payment, delivery and reimbursement. The sub-fund may be exposed to significant losses in the event of a counterparty default.
6. Risk in connection with Investments in Non-Investment Grade and/or Unrated Debt Securities
- The sub-fund may invest in non-investment grade and/or unrated debt securities. Investing in noninvestment grade and/or unrated debt securities may subject the sub-fund to higher credit risk/risk of default than investment grade debt securities. The sub-fund may be exposed to significant losses if the issuers of securities of the sub-fund default payments. The market of non-investment grade and/or unrated debt securities may be less active, making it more difficult to sell the securities. Valuation of such securities is more difficult and thus the sub-fund’s price may be more volatile.
7. Risk in connection with Investments in Sovereign Debt
- The sub-fund may invest in sovereign debt. Investment in sovereign debt issued or guaranteed by governments or governmental entities largely in-debt involves a higher degree of risk. The governmental entity that controls the repayment of sovereign debt may not be able or willing to repay the principal and/or interest when due in accordance with the terms of such debt. The value of investments of the subfund may be adversely affected.
- The sub-fund may be subject to the risk of high concentration in debt securities issued by and/or guaranteed by a single sovereign issuer which is below investment grade and/or unrated (for example Indonesia and Philippines) which is also subject to higher credit/default risk. In the event of a default of the sovereign issuer, the sub-fund may suffer significant loss.
8. Portfolio Concentration Risk
- The sub-fund will, whilst respecting diversification principle, invest in a limited number of debt securities which may result in a greater volatility than funds investing in a larger number of debt securities.
9. Risk related to Investments in Some Countries
- Investments in some countries (China, India, Indonesia, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Thailand) involve risks linked to the restrictions imposed on foreign investors and counterparties, higher market volatility and the risk of lack of liquidity.
10. Risk relating to repurchase agreements
- In the event of the failure of the counterparty with which collateral has been placed, the sub-fund may suffer loss as there may be delays in recovering collateral placed out or the cash originally received may be less than the collateral placed with the counterparty due to inaccurate pricing of the collateral or market
movements.
11. Risk relating to reverse repurchase agreements
In the event of the failure of the counterparty with which collateral has been placed, the sub-fund may suffer loss as there may be delays in recovering cash placed out or difficulty in realising the collateral or proceeds from the sale of the collateral may be less than the cash placed with the counterparty due to inaccurate pricing of the collateral or market movements.
12. Liquidity Risk
- Investments made by the sub-fund may become illiquid. It may not be possible to sell or buy these investments quickly enough to prevent or minimize a loss in the sub-fund.
13. Currency Exchange Risk
- The sub-fund may hold assets denominated in currencies that differ from the base currency, and may be affected by exchange rate fluctuations between the base currency and the other currencies and by changes in exchange rate controls. A depreciation of the denomination currency will lead to a depreciation in the exchange value of the security. When the manager is willing to hedge the currency exchange risk of a transaction, there is no guarantee that such operation will be completely effective and the sub-fund’s value may be adversely affected.
14. Operational & Custody Risk
- Some markets are less regulated than most of the international markets; hence, the services related to custody and liquidation for the sub-fund on such markets could be more risky. In the event of a custodian default, the sub-fund may suffer a delay in recovering its assets, pending the resolution of the relevant default or bankruptcy proceedings.
15. Risk in connection with Dividend Payment
- The Management Company may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the sub-fund. Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any distributions involving payment of dividends out of the sub-fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share. The Management Company may amend the dividend policy subject to the SFC’s prior approval and by giving not less than one month’s notice to investors.
16. Investment Risk
- When investing in a fund, there is a risk that the final outcome may deviate from the initial expectations.
The sub-fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value and therefore may suffer losses. In addition, there is no guarantee of principal repayment.
