The Fund is suitable for you, if you:
seek income through investment in a portfolio of global fixed income instruments;
have a medium to long-term investment horizon; and
have a moderate risk tolerance.
The Fund will be investing a minimum of 80% of the Fund’s NAV into the Target Fund and a maximum of 20% of the Fund’s NAV into money market instruments, fixed deposit with Financial Institution and/or liquid assets.
The Manager may take temporary defensive positions that may be inconsistent with the Fund’s principal strategy by reducing its investment into the Target Fund and raise liquidity levels of the Fund during adverse market conditions to protect the Unit Holders’ interest. In raising the Fund’s liquidity levels, we may also invest into collective investment schemes that are able to meet this objective.
The Manager may substitute the Target Fund with another fund that has a similar objective with the Fund, if, in our opinion, the Target Fund no longer meets the Fund’s investment objective. However, this is subject to the Unit Holder’s approval before any such changes are made.
The Manager may use derivatives, such as foreign exchange forward contracts and cross currency swaps, mainly for hedging purposes. Cross currency swaps and/or foreign exchange forward contracts may be used to hedge the principal and/or the returns of the foreign currency exposure of any of the Class(es) against the Base Currency of the Fund. The employment of derivatives under these circumstances is expected to reduce the impact of foreign currency movements on the Fund’s NAV, irrespective of the currency classes.
While the hedging strategy will assist with mitigating the potential foreign exchange losses by the Fund, any potential gains from the hedging strategy will be capped as well. The Fund may also employ derivatives for investment purposes to enhance the returns of the Fund by taking a view on the underlying asset or currency, and establish a long position to gain a specific underlying exposure. The Fund may also employ derivatives for investment purposes to enhance the returns of the Fund by taking a view on the underlying asset or currency and establish a long position to gain a specific underlying exposure. The types of derivatives envisaged for investment purposes include forwards and swaps which are over-the-counter or traded on centralized exchanges.
Subject to the availability of income, the Fund endeavours to distribute income on a quarterly basis, after the end of its first financial year.
