Look beyond traditional fixed income




As growth and inflation expectations have risen, sharp increases in government bond yields have led to losses for some investors, and worries are building that further losses could be around the corner.


Investors may therefore benefit from looking beyond traditional fixed income sectors, choosing a diversified, multi-sector approach that can find opportunities even when interest rates are rising. For example, flexible bond funds can shift their exposure to corporate high yield bonds and emerging market debt as rates increase, taking advantage of the yield cushion they provide and helping investors maintain a positive total return.

Risk of investment

  • The value of your investment may fall as well as rise and you may get back less than you originally invested.
  • Because the Fund is flexible and opportunistic, it may be subject to periods of high volatility.
  • The value of debt securities may change significantly depending on economic and interest rate conditions as well as the credit worthiness of the issuer. These risks are typically increased for emerging market and below investment grade debt securities.
  • In addition, emerging markets may be subject to increased risks, including less developed custody and settlement practices, higher volatility and lower liquidity than non emerging market securities.
  • Contingent Convertible Securities are likely to be adversely impacted should specific trigger events occur (as specified in the contract terms of the issuing company). This may be as a result of the security converting to equities at a discounted share price, the value of the security being written down, temporarily or permanently, and/or coupon payments ceasing or being deferred.
  • Asset-backed and mortgage-backed securities may be highly illiquid, subject to adverse changes to interest rates and to the risk that the payment obligations relating to the underlying asset are not met.
  • The Fund may be concentrated in a limited number of countries, sectors, currencies or issuers and as a result, may be more volatile than more broadly diversified funds.
  • Convertible bonds are subject to the credit, interest rate and market risks stated above associated with both debt and equity securities, and to risks specific to convertible securities. Convertible bonds may also be subject to lower liquidity than the underlying equity securities.
  • The value of equity securities may go down as well as up in response to the performance of individual companies and general market.
  • Fund's use of equity derivatives to manage the portfolio's correlation to equity markets may not always achieve its objective and could adversely affect the return of your investment.
  • The Fund uses financial derivative instruments for investment purposes. The value of financial derivative instruments can be volatile and may result in gains or losses in excess of the amount required initially to establish a position in the derivative. The Management Company is required to disclose in Appendix III of the Prospectus the sum of the gross notional exposure of the financial derivative instruments used (including those used for hedging or efficient portfolio management) as the expected level of leverage. However, this figure does not take into account whether the instrument increases or decreases investment risk and so may not be representative of the overall level of investment risk in the Fund.
  • Short selling may be subject to changes in regulations and losses from short positions may be unlimited.
  • Movements in currency exchange rates can adversely affect the return of your investment. The currency hedging used to minimise the effect of currency fluctuations may not always be successful. Investors may have exposure to currencies other than the currency of their Share Class.
