Investment objective summary
The Fund aims to provide income with the opportunity for capital growth (i.e. to grow value of your investment) over the long-term.
The Fund is actively managed and invests primarily in a diversified portfolio of debt securities (e.g. bonds) issued by Emerging Markets Corporate Borrowers and derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of a debt security) which offer exposure to such debt securities. These securities may be Investment Grade and Non-Investment Grade, and of any duration.
The Fund promotes environmental and social characteristics in line with Article 8 of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). The Fund will not invest in certain borrowers. Over time, the Investment Manager may, in accordance with the Fund’s investment policy, apply additional exclusions to be disclosed on the website, as they are implemented.
Performance & returns
Rolling 12 month Performance
Growth of Investment
Calendar Year Returns
The value of investments, and any income generated from them, can fall as well as rise. If the currency shown differs from your home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. 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. Where a shareclass has been in existence for less than 12 months, performance is not disclosed. 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. The Trailing Returns chart may use different Sector performance start dates compared to other performance charts or other marketing literature which may result in minor differences. Where a benchmark index is calculated on a monthly basis, the returns will be out of line with the fund and/or sector which are calculated daily.
The Fund may incur further expenses (not included in the above Ongoing charge) as permitted by the Prospectus.
Specific fund risks
Charges from capital
For Inc-2 and Inc-3 shares classes, expenses are charged to the capital account rather than to income, so capital will be reduced. This could constrain future capital and income growth. Income may be taxable.
Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of investments and any related income.
There is a risk that the issuers of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) may not be able to meet interest payments nor repay the money they have borrowed. The worse the credit quality of the issuer, the greater the risk of default and therefore investment loss.
The use of derivatives may increase overall risk by magnifying the effect of both gains and losses leading to large changes in value and potentially large financial loss. A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations which may also lead to a financial loss.
Emerging market (inc. China)
These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than more developed markets as they may have less developed legal, political, economic or other systems.
The value of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) tends to decrease when interest rates rise.
There may be insufficient buyers or sellers of particular investments giving rise to delays in trading and being able to make settlements, and/or large fluctuations in value. This may lead to larger financial losses than might be anticipated.
We recommend that you seek independent financial advice to ensure this Fund is suitable for your investment needs.

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 shareclasses 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.
