• The Fund invests primarily in higher interest bearing fixed interest securities that may be subject to credit/counterparty risk, interest rate risk, downgrading risk, sovereign default risk, valuation risk, credit rating risk, liquidity risk, risk associated with investment in Europe, currency risk and higher default risk in high yield / non-Investment Grade / unrated debt securities as well as other risks.
  • The Fund may use derivatives for hedging, efficient portfolio management and/or investment purposes, and may be subject to risks associated with derivatives such as liquidity, valuation, volatility, over-the-counter transaction, counterparty risks and high leverage risk. This may result in significant risk of loss when the use becomes ineffective.
  • The Inc-2 Share Classes may at the Board of Directors' discretion pay dividends gross of expense and therefore may effectively pay dividend 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. This may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per Share.
  • Reference Currency Hedged Share Class may be subject to risks arising from uncertainty in interest rate and foreign exchange.
  • In adverse situations, the Fund may suffer significant losses. It is possible that the original amount you invested could be lost.

Objective

Investment objective summary

The Fund aims to provide an income and capital return in excess of that which is generated by prevailing European high yield bond indices over the long term. The Fund seeks to achieve its objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of Euro and British Pound Sterling denominated higher interest rate bearing debt securities (which may be Investment Grade and Non-Investment Grade) issued in the Eurobond, Sterling domestic or Euro domestic markets by issuers around the world and derivatives which offer exposure to such securities. The currency mix of denominations may be varied, reflecting the Investment Manager’s assessment of likely exchange rate movements at any time.

The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results.

Investment objectives and performance targets may not necessarily be achieved, losses may be made. We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs.

Investment involves risks. Past performance figures shown are not indicative of future performance.  Investors should read the offering documents of the fund for details, including the risk factors. This document and the company’s website have not been reviewed by the SFC. Issuer: Ninety One Hong Kong Limited.

Dividend is not guaranteed. The fund aims to make dividend payment to investors on a/an monthly/quarterly/semi-annually/annually basis. The Inc-2 and Inc-3 share classes may distribute dividends out of / effectively out of its capital. With regards to Inc-2 and Inc-3 share classes, the Board of Directors may at its discretion pay dividend out of gross income while charging all or part of the share class’s fees and expenses to the capital of the share class, resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of dividends by the share class and therefore, the share class may effectively pay dividend out of capital. Payment of dividends out of capital or effectively 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 effectively out of the Sub-Fund’s capital may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per Share

Performances based on NAV to NAV, with dividend reinvested in share class currency. The investment returns are denominated in share class currency, which may be a foreign currency. If investment returns are not denominated in HKD/USD, US/HK dollar-based investors are exposed to exchange rate fluctuations.

10 year calendar performance: 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 each share class increased or decreased in value during the calendar year being shown. Performance data has been calculated in share class currency, including ongoing charges and excluding subscription fee and redemption fee you might have to pay. Where no past performance is shown there was insufficient data available in that year to provide performance.

Other non-specified information referred to above, source: Ninety One.

The share class aims to make distribution as per the distribution frequency stated.
Annualised Yield = Distribution per share / Record date NAV x Distribution frequency x 100%.

Neither Morningstar nor its content providers are responsible for any damages or losses arising from any use of this Rating, Rating Report or Information contained therein.

The overall rating for a fund, often called the ‘star rating’, is a third party rating derived from a quantitative methodology that rates funds based on an enhanced Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return measure. ‘Star ratings’ run from 1 star (lowest) to 5 stars (highest) and are reviewed at the end of every calendar month. The various funds are ranked by their Morningstar™ Risk-Adjusted Return scores and relevant stars are assigned. It is important to note that individual share classes of each fund are evaluated separately and their ratings may differ depending on the launch date, fees and expenses relevant to the shareclass. In order to achieve a rating the share class of a fund must have a minimum three-year performance track record.

For a full description of the ratings, please see our ratings guide. A rating is not a recommendation to buy, sell or hold a fund.

The portfolio may change significantly over a short period of time. This is not a buy or sell recommendation for any particular security. Figures may not always sum to 100 due to rounding.
