Investment objective: The investment objective of Natixis International Funds (Dublin) I – Loomis Sayles Global Opportunistic Bond Fund (the “Fund”) is to achieve high returns through capital growth and income. Investment policy: The Fund invests primarily in global securities that are intended to provide fixed periodic interest payments and the eventual return of the principal at a future date (“Fixed Income Securities”), selected on an opportunistic basis. The Fund invests at least two-thirds of its total assets in global investment grade Fixed Income Securities (securities rated at least BBB- by Standard & Poor’s Ratings or an equivalent rating by another agency or, if unrated, determined by the Investment Manager to be comparable) and in global currencies including currency exchange transactions for hedging and efficient portfolio management purposes. The Fund may invest in Fixed Income Securities issued by companies, issued or guaranteed by sovereign governments or public international bodies, zero coupon securities (securities that make no periodic interest payments and are sold at a discount from their face value), Regulation S Securities (securities initially offered only outside the US and to non US persons. The initial offering is exempt from US securities laws), Rule 144A securities (US private offered securities) and securities whose value and income payments are derived from and secured against a specified pool of assets or mortgages through a securitization process. The Fund may invest in fixed income securities that may be denominated in any currency and may be issued by issuers located in countries with emerging securities markets. The Fund may invest in fixed-income securities of any maturity (the date on which return of the principal is due and period interest payments stop). The Fund may invest up to one-third of its total assets in short term highly liquid securities, bank deposits or securities other than those described above such as hybrid bonds (debt securities combining the regular interest payments of bonds with certain equity features), commercial paper (short term unsecured debt instrument), collateralized mortgage obligations (debt instruments using a pool of mortgage loans as collateral), convertible securities in accordance with the UCITS Regulations and other specific U.S. securities. The Fund may invest up to 20% of its total assets in securities of below investment grade quality. The Fund may invest up to 25% of its total assets in convertible bonds and up to 10 % of its total assets in equities, other equity-type securities, warrants and depositary receipts for any of those equity securities. The Fund is actively managed and uses an opportunistic strategy in selecting securities. The Fund may use derivatives for hedging and/or investment purposes. The Base Currency of the Fund is the US Dollar. The Fund is not managed relative to a specific reference index.
