Investment Scope

The fund invests in debt instruments (i.e. notes, bonds, certificates, etc) issued and/or denominated in the currencies of low or middle-income developing countries ("emerging markets") in Latin America, Asia, Central Europe, Eastern Europe and Africa. In most cases, the remaining life of these instruments is less than one year. Furthermore, the fund enters in emerging market currency forward contracts (a currency market transaction in which a seller agrees to deliver a specific currency to a buyer at some point in the future).

The fund may also invest in Chinese onshore debt securities through Bond Connect, a market facilitating investment to the Chinese bond market. Measured over a period of several years we aim to beat the performance of the benchmark JP Morgan ELMI Plus. We actively manage the fund via currency allocation, curve positioning and instrument selection. The portfolio is diversified across countries and instruments. The portfolio composition can significantly deviate from the benchmark. You can sell your participation in this fund on each (working) day on which the value of the units is calculated, which for this fund occurs daily. The fund does not aim to provide you with a dividend. It will reinvest all earnings.
