Key investment risks:
• The Fund may invest in any one or a combination of the following instruments:
– futures, options and swaps and other financial derivative instruments (“FDI”) for investment purposes, up to 10% of the net asset value ("NAV") of the Fund. Given the leverage effect of FDI, such investments may result in substantial loss


(as much as 100% of the NAV of the relevant Fund);
– debt securities rated below investment grade; and
– mortgage and asset-backed securities and/or in index/structured securities. These financial instruments may be rated below investment grade.
• Investing in any one of the above instruments may involve substantial credit/counterparty, market, liquidity, currency, leverage, interest, index and swap risks. If the issuers default, or such securities or their underlying assets, cannot be realised or perform badly, investors’ entire investments may be lost.
• Series 3, 4 and 5 share classes of the Fund may at its discretion (i) pay dividends out of the capital of the Fund, and/ or (ii) pay dividends out of gross income while charging all or part of the fees and expenses to the capital of the Fund, resulting in an increase in distributable income available for the payment of dividends by the Fund and therefore, the Fund may effectively pay dividends out of capital. This may result in an immediate reduction of the Fund’s net asset value per share, and it amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment.
•The Fund's investments involve developing markets. Owing to its potentially higher volatility and risk levels, as well as lower political and economic stability than developed markets, asset values could be affected in various levels.
• The Fund’s investments may be more concentrated than others that diversify across investments and may therefore be subject to higher risk than funds with more diversified investments.
• The investment decision is yours. If you are in any doubt about the contents of this document, you should seek independent professional financial advice.
• Investors should not only base on this document alone to make investment decisions and should read the Prospectus including the risk factors for further details.




The Fund aims to provide a high income with the potential for some capital growth over the long term.


The Fund invests at least 80% of its assets in US high yield (non-investment grade), Debt Securities or preference shares issued by companies or any other type of issuer.
