(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, index, interest 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.
• 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.
