Objective

Investment objective summary

  • The Fund aims to provide total returns comprised of income and capital growth (to grow the value of your investment) over at least a full credit cycle (this objective may be measured over at least 5 years).
      • The Fund targets a positive return of 3 month GBP LIBOR +4% before allowing for fees over a full credit cycle (which may be measured over 5-year rolling periods).
      • While the Fund aims to achieve a positive return and its performance target, there is no guarantee that either will be achieved over the full credit cycle or over any period of time and there is risk of loss.
      • A credit cycle means the economic conditions over which the cost of borrowing initially increases, then decreases and then stabilises. Credit cycles can vary in length and typically last between 3 and 7 years.
      • The Fund invests primarily (at least two-thirds) in bonds (or similar debt-based assets) issued by borrowers around the world (including but not limited to emerging markets) and in related derivatives (financial contracts whose value is linked to the price of an underlying asset).
      • These bonds (or similar debt-based assets) may be denominated in any currency, have any credit rating or be unrated, and may be issued by any issuer e.g. governments or companies.
      • The Fund may also invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, cash or near cash, deposits, up to 10% in units or shares in other funds (which may be managed by a Ninety One group company, or a third party). Derivatives may be used for investment purposes and/or managing the Fund in a way that is designed to reduce risk or cost and/or generate income or growth with a low level of risk. For example, the Investment Manager may use derivatives to protect against the impact of changes in the value of currencies in the Fund and Pounds Sterling.
      • The performance target has been chosen as we believe it sets a realistic expectation of the Fund’s long-term outperformance of the return an investor can expect, based on the principal asset types available for investment and the current market environment. Fund performance can also be compared to the IA sector average. Many funds sold in the UK are grouped into sectors by the Investment Association (the trade body that represents UK investment managers), to facilitate comparison between funds with broadly similar characteristics.

      Performance & returns

      29/09/2020
      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. 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.

      Charges

      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.

      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.

      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.

      Liquidity

      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.

      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.
