Investment Objective

The Sub-Fund invests in a diversified portfolio consisting primarily of high yield fixed income/debt securities issued by Asian Entities1 or their subsidiaries. This Sub-Fund’s portfolio primarily consists of securities denominated in US dollars as well as the various Asian currencies and aims to maximize total returns through investing primarily (at least 66% of the Sub-Fund’s net asset value) in fixed income/debt securities rated below BBB-2 (i.e. non-investment grade).

Nature and Extent of Risks

Investment involves risks. Please refer to the Hong Kong Summary Prospectus for details including the risk factors.
1. General Investment Risk
-The Sub-Fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value due to any of the key risk factors below and therefore your investment in the Sub-Fund may suffer losses. You may not get back your original investment. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The level of investment return is not fixed and will vary.
2. Risks of Investing in Bonds
-Interest rate risk: Bonds are subject to interest rate fluctuations. In general, the prices of debt securities rise when interest rates fall, whilst their prices fall when interest rates rise.
- Credit risk: Investments in bonds are subject to credit default risk of the issuers of the bonds. Adverse economic conditions, unanticipated rise in interest rate, unavailability of additional funding, may impair the issuer’s ability to meet its debt obligations, which may lead to potential default by the issuer
- Risk associated with below investment grade bonds: Bonds that are below-investment-grade or are unrated are more susceptible to credit risk, and in particular high yield bonds offer higher yields to compensate for the reduced creditworthiness or increased risk of default that these securities carry. Such securities are generally subject to lower liquidity, higher volatility and greater risk of loss of principal and interest than high-rated debt securities.
- Counterparty risk: The Sub-Fund will be exposed to the credit risk on counterparties with which it trades and any default by such a counterparty (for example, due to insolvency) could result in substantial losses to the Sub-Fund.
- Risk of credit rating downgrades: The credit rating of a debt instrument or its issuer may subsequently be downgraded. In the event of such downgrading, the value of the Sub-Fund may be adversely affected. The investment manager may or may not be able to dispose of the debt instruments that are being downgraded.
- Sovereign debt risk: The Sub-Fund’s investment in securities issued or guaranteed by governments may be exposed to political, social, and economic risks. In adverse situations, the sovereign issuers may not be able or willing to repay the principal and/or interest when due or may request the Sub-Fund to participate in restructuring such debts. The Sub-Fund may suffer significant loses when there is a default of sovereign debt issuers.
- Valuation risk: Valuation of the Sub-Fund’s investments may involve uncertainties and judgmental determinations. If such valuation turns out to be incorrect, this may affect the net asset value calculation of the Sub-Fund.
Credit rating risk: Credit ratings assigned by rating agencies are subject to limitations and do not guarantee the creditworthiness of the security and/or issuer at all times.
3. Derivatives Risk
-Derivatives involve risks different from, and, in some cases, greater than, the risks presented by more traditional securities investments. Some of the risks associated with derivatives are market risk, management risk, credit risk, counterparty risk, liquidity risk, volatility risk, operational risk, leverage risk, valuation risk and over-the-counter transaction risk.
-The Sub-Fund may use financial derivative instruments (FDIs) extensively for hedging and efficient portfolio management purposes whilst FDIs will not be extensively used for investment purposes, however, the Sub-Fund’s use of derivatives may become ineffective in such endeavours and the Sub-Fund may suffer significant losses.
4. Concentration Risk
-The Sub-Fund’s investments may be concentrated in any one single country within Asia. The value of the Sub-Fund may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio of investments.
- The value of the Sub-Fund may be more susceptible to adverse economic, political, policy, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal or regulatory event affecting any one country in the Asian market.
5. Emerging Markets Risk
- The Sub-Fund invests in Asian bonds, which may from time to time include bonds in emerging markets. Investing in emerging markets involves increased risks and special considerations not typically associated with investment in more developed markets due to, among other factors, greater political, tax, economic, foreign exchange controls, liquidity, higher degree of volatility, settlement, custody and legal/regulatory risks.
6. Liquidity Risk
- The Sub-Fund may have investments which have high liquidity risks (for example, low trading volumes), and may incur substantial losses if it is unable to sell these investments at opportune times or prices.
7. Currency and Exchange Rates Risk
-The assets that the Sub-Fund invests in may be denominated in currencies different from the Sub-Fund’s base currency and the currency of the Shares held by you. Also, a Share Class may be designated in a currency other than the base currency of the Sub-Fund. The NAV of the Sub-Fund may be affected unfavourably by adverse movements in foreign currency exchange rates between the currencies of the underlying assets and the base currency of the Sub-Fund and the currency of the Shares held by you, as well as by changes in exchange rate controls.
8. Hedged Share Class Risk
- If the Shares of a Share Class can be subscribed and redeemed in a currency other than the base currency of the Sub-Fund, a fluctuation in exchange rates could affect the value of an investment performance and therefore substantially impact the performance of such Share Class.
- The hedging strategy is to reduce but not eliminate currency risk. If these hedging transactions are imperfect or are only placed over a portion of the foreign exchange exposure, such Share Class will bear the resulting benefit or loss.
9. Risks associated with Payment of Dividends out of/Effectively out of Capital
- Investors should note that where distributions are declared and paid out of the Sub-Fund, the board of directors of Eastspring Investments may at its discretion pay dividends out of the capital of the Sub-Fund or pay dividends out of gross income while charging/paying all or part of the Sub-Fund’s fees and expenses to/out of the capital of the Sub-Fund, resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of dividends by the Sub-Fund and therefore, the Sub-Fund may effectively pay dividends out of capital.
- 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 or payment of dividends effectively out of the Sub-Fund’s capital (as the case may be) may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
