Objective

Investment objective summary

  • The Fund aims to provide income and long-term capital growth.
      • The Fund invests primarily in bonds (contracts to repay borrowed money which typically pay interest at fixed times) issued by governments, institutions or companies in emerging markets (countries that are in economic terms less developed than the major Western countries). These bonds are issued in hard currencies (globally traded major currencies).
      • The Fund may invest in other assets such as cash, other funds (which may be managed by the Investment Manager, other companies in the same group as the Investment Manager or a third party) and derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of an underlying asset). Derivatives may be used for investment purposes (i.e. in order to achieve the Fund's investment objectives) or for efficient portfolio management purposes e.g. with the aim of either managing the Fund risks or reducing the costs of managing the Fund.

      Charges

      Maximum initial charge %

      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.

      Default

      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.

      Derivatives

      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

      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.

      Government securities exposure

      The Fund may invest more than 35% of its assets in securities issued or guaranteed by a permitted sovereign entity, as defined in the definitions section of the Fund’s prospectus.

      Interest rate

      The value of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) tends to decrease when interest rates rise.

      Performance data source: © Morningstar, NAV based, (net of fees, excluding initial charges), total return, in the share class dealing currency. Performance would be lower had initial charges been included as an initial charge of up to 5% (10% for S shares) may be applied to your investment. This means that for an investment of $1,000, where the initial charge equals 5%, $950 ($900 for S shares) would actually be invested in the Fund. Returns to individual investors will vary in accordance with their personal tax status and tax domicile.

      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.
