The Fund aims to provide income with the opportunity for capital growth (i.e. to grow the value of your investment) over the long-term. The Fund is actively managed and invests primarily (i.e. at least two-thirds of the net asset value of the Fund) in a diversified portfolio of debt securities (e.g. bonds) issued by Emerging Markets Borrowers and derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of a debt security) which offer exposure to such debt securities.
The performance of years prior to 2013 was achieved under circumstances that may no longer apply as the investment policy was changed in 2012. On 30 May 2012, the investment policy has changed to allow the use of derivatives for investment purpose.
The computation basis of the performance is based on the calendar year end, NAV-To-NAV, with dividend reinvested.
These figures show by how much the share class increased or decreased in value during the calendar year/performance periods being shown. Performance data has been calculated in share class currency, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee (initial charge) and redemption fee (if any) you might have to pay. If the currency shown differs from your home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs.
Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that year to provide performance.
No representation is being made that any investment will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those achieved in the past, or that significant losses will be avoided.
