Key investment risks:

  • The Fund invests in debt securities/ preference shares (including below investment grade or unrated) and asset/ mortgage-backed securities; and is subject to greater interest rate, credit/ counterparty, volatility, liquidity, downgrading, valuation, credit rating risks. It may be more volatile.
  • Investments in the Fund involve general investment,


  • currency, hedging, economic, political, policy, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal, regulatory, securities financing transactions related and preference shares related risks. In extreme market conditions, you may lose your entire investment.
  • The Fund may invest in financial derivatives instruments for investment and efficient portfolio management purposes. This may involve counterparty, liquidity, leverage, volatility, valuation, over-the-counter transaction, credit, currency, index, settlement default and interest risks; and the Fund may suffer total or substantial losses.
  • The Fund's investments are concentrated in US debt securities/ preference shares rated below investment grade or unrated and may be more volatile.
  • The Fund may at its discretion pay dividends (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.
  • Investors should not only base on this document alone to make investment decisions and should read the offering documents 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 debt securities or preference shares (non-investment grade) issued by US issuers or companies.
