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.

Interest rate

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

Reference Currency Hedging

Reference currency hedging aims to protect investors from a decline in the value of the reference currency only (the currency in which accounts are reported) and will not protect against a decline in the values of the currencies of the underlying investments, where these are different from the reference currency. In addition, where the currencies of the underlying investments are different from the reference currency, investors may suffer a loss when the value of the reference currency increases against the value of the share class currency. There can be no assurance that hedging strategies will be successful and such hedging can positively or negatively impact investors by inaccuracies in the operation of the hedge.

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.
