Investment Objective

The Fund’s objective is to seek maximum total return consistent with prudent investment management (i.e. identifying and implementing strategies for consistent, disciplined and cost-effective investment, based on considerable research and measured forethought, and continual monitoring of individual security and total portfolio risk).

Nature and Extent of Risks

Investment involves risks. Please refer to the Prospectus for details including the risk factors.
1. Credit risk
- The Fund may suffer losses if the issuer of a fixed income security in which it invests is unable or unwilling to make timely principal and/or interest payments, or to otherwise honour its obligations.
2. High yield, below investment grade and unrated securities risk
- The Fund may invest in high yield, below investment grade securities and unrated securities of similar credit quality.
- These securities typically entail greater potential price volatility and may be less liquid than higher-rated securities.
- Investments in such securities may also be subject to greater credit risk. If the issuer of a security is in default with respect to interest or principal payments, the Fund may lose its entire investment.
3. Interest rate risk
- The value of fixed income securities tends to decrease when interest rates rise, which may cause a decrease in value of the Fund.
- Fixed income securities with longer durations are more sensitive to changes in interest rates, usually making them more volatile than securities with shorter durations.
4. Downgrade risk
- The Fund may hold securities that may be impacted by a downgraded credit rating. In the event of downgrading of the securities, the Fund’s investment value in such securities may be adversely affected.
- Investment in non-investment grade securities involves higher volatility, credit and liquidity risks.
5. Derivatives risk
- The use of derivatives involves risks different from, and possibly greater than, risks associated with investing directly in securities and other more traditional investments.
- The use of derivatives involves the risk of loss due to default by a counterparty to make required payments or otherwise comply with the terms of the contract.
- Liquidity risk exists when a particular derivative instrument becomes difficult to purchase or sell. In such cases, the Fund may not be able to initiate a transaction or liquidate a position at an advantageous time or price.
- The use of some derivatives may involve volatility risk, which is the risk that movements in the value or level of the underlying asset, rate or index are magnified thus increasing the volatility of the Fund price.
- Derivatives also involve the risk of mispricing or improper valuation and the risk that changes in the value of the derivative may not correlate perfectly with the underlying asset.
- In adverse situations, the use of financial derivative instruments by the Fund for hedging may become ineffective and the Fund may suffer significant losses as a result.
- Although the leverage figure of the Fund calculated using the commitment approach will typically not materially exceed 100% of the NAV of the Fund, in exceptional circumstances the Fund may have a leveraged exposure of over 100% of the NAV of the Fund when using this calculation methodology. Given the leverage effect embedded in derivatives, in the worst case scenario, investing in derivatives may result in total or substantial loss (as much as 100% of the NAV of the Fund) from the use of derivatives.
6. Emerging markets risk
- Investing in emerging markets securities imposes risks different from, or greater than, risks of investing in developed countries due to, among other factors, greater price volatility, market, credit, legal, liquidity, currency, political, economic and regulatory risks.
- The systems and procedures for trading and settlement of securities in emerging markets are less developed and less transparent and transactions may take longer to settle. In addition, foreign exchange controls in emerging market countries may cause difficulties in the repatriation of funds from such countries.
- Because the Fund’s investments may be concentrated in emerging markets, the Fund may be subject to greater volatility than portfolios which comprise broad-based global investments. During times of market uncertainty, such investments may negatively affect the Fund’s performance.
7. Currency risk
- The Fund’s investment in non-USD denominated fixed income securities and currency positions may cause the value of the Fund’s investments to fluctuate with changes in exchange rates. This may lead to a fall in the Fund’s NAV.
- Active currency positions implemented directly or indirectly by the Fund may not be correlated with the underlying securities held by the Fund. As a result, the Fund may suffer significant losses even if there is no loss to the value of the underlying securities held by the Fund.
8. Risks associated with investments in non-investment grade securities of a single sovereign issuer
- The Fund may be subject to increased credit risk and increased risk of default of the relevant issuer as a result of its ability to invest more than 10% in non-investment grade securities of a single sovereign issuer.
- A sovereign issuer’s ability to meet its principal and interest payments may be adversely affected by developments specific to the sovereign issuer. The downgrade of a sovereign credit rating or the default of a sovereign issuer may negatively affect the Fund’s performance.
- Debt securities with a below investment grade rating are also more vulnerable to adverse business, financial and economic conditions compared to securities with a credit rating of investment grade or above.
- To the extent that the Fund concentrates its investments in a particular issuer, security or geographic region, its investments will be more susceptible to fluctuations in value resulting from adverse conditions in the particular issuer, security or geographic region. Such conditions may include, but are not limited to, unfavourable or unanticipated poor performance of a particular issuer and political instability facing a particular geographic region. This may cause the Fund to be more volatile.
- Under adverse conditions, such investments may adversely affect the performance of the Fund.
9. Liquidity risk
- Liquidity risk exists when particular investments are difficult to purchase or sell. Also, illiquid securities may become harder to value especially in changing markets.
- The Fund’s investments in illiquid securities may reduce the returns of the Fund because it may be unable to sell the illiquid securities at an advantageous time or price which could prevent the Fund from taking advantage of other investment opportunities.
10. Investment risk
- The Fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value and therefore your investment in the Fund may suffer losses. There is no guarantee of the repayment of principal.
- Due to the higher than average degree of risk attached to investment in the Fund due to its ability to invest in high yield securities, an investment in the Fund should not constitute a substantial proportion of an investment portfolio and may not be appropriate for all investors.
11. Global Investment risk
- The Fund invests in securities of certain international jurisdictions and may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value.
- Events such as nationalisation, expropriation or confiscatory taxation, currency blockage, economic uncertainty, political changes or diplomatic developments could adversely affect the Fund’s investments.
- To the extent that a Fund invests a significant portion of its assets in a concentrated geographic area like Europe or Asia, the Fund will generally have more exposure to regional economic risks associated with investments.
- In the event that a Fund invests in a regional currency (i) which ceases to exist or (ii) in which a participant in such currency ceases to be a participant in such currency, it is likely that this would have an adverse impact on the Fund’s liquidity.
12. Euro and European Union (“EU”) related risks
- The Fund may have investment exposure to Europe and the Eurozone.
- In light of the sovereign debt crisis in Europe, such investment exposure may subject the Fund to certain risks. For example, it is possible that various Eurozone member countries could abandon the euro and return to a national currency and/or that the euro will cease to exist as a single currency in its current form.
- There is a possibility that the various measures taken by the governments of many European countries, the European Commission, the European Central Bank, the International Monetary Fund and other authorities to address the current fiscal conditions in Europe may not have the desired effect.
- The referendum on the United Kingdom’s continued membership of the EU resulted in a vote for the United Kingdom to leave the EU. There may be detrimental implications for the value of the Fund’s investments, its ability to enter into transactions, to value or realise certain of its investments or otherwise to implement its investment policy. This may be due to, among other things, increased uncertainty and volatility in United Kingdom, EU and other financial markets, fluctuations in asset values, increased illiquidity of investments located, traded or listed within the United Kingdom, the EU or elsewhere, and/or changes in legal and regulatory regimes to which the Company, the Investment Advisor and/or the Fund’s assets are or become subject to.
- Such events may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investment in Europe.
13. Risks relating to the charging of fees / payment of dividends out of capital
- For the Income II Shares (which seeks to provide an enhanced yield to shareholders), the Fund may, at its discretion, charge fees to capital (which constitutes a payment of dividends effectively out of capital) as well as pay dividends out of capital. The Fund may also take into account the yield differential (which can be positive or negative) arising from share class currency hedging (which constitutes a distribution from capital). This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to the original investment.
- Any distributions involving the payment of dividends of out capital, the charging of fees to capital or the payment of yield differential arising from share class currency hedging as dividends may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per share for the Income II Shares and may reduce the capital available for future investment and capital growth.
