Fund Profile

Category: Open Ended Investment Company

The Fund aims to maximise the returns on your investment through a combination of income and capital growth, through investment in the global fixed income market. Policy The Fund invests at least 50% of its assets in high yield bonds (i.e. bonds classified as below investment grade) issued by companies worldwide which are denominated in US Dollar or non-US Dollar bonds that are hedged back into US Dollar. Although the focus is on high yield corporate bonds, the Fund may also invest in investment grade corporate bonds, government bonds, cash or assets that can be turned into cash quickly. The Fund invests in developed and emerging markets, with a maximum of 20% of its net assets invested in emerging markets. Where the Fund invests in non-US Dollar assets, the currency exposure of these investments will generally be hedged back to US Dollar. Up to 5% of the Fund's currency exposure may not be hedged (i.e. the Fund may be exposed to the risks of investing in another currency for up to 5% of its assets). The Fund may invest both directly, and through the use of derivatives. The use of derivatives may generate market leverage (i.e. where the Fund takes market exposure in excess of the value of its assets). Recommendation This Fund may not be appropriate for investors who plan to withdraw their money within 5 years. How to buy You may buy or sell shares on a daily basis (but not weekends or Bank Holidays). Orders must be received by 11.59a.m. (Irish time) for execution at midday valuation point. Investment process The fund manager decides which investments to hold in the Fund based on an assessment of a combination of macroeconomic, asset, sector and individual investment level factors. Before being selected, an assessment is made of the creditworthiness of each potential investment (i.e. the likelihood of the companies issuing the bonds being able to meet the coupon payments or pay back the capital of the bond on maturity). A number of other factors are also considered, such as expected total return relative to the assessed risk, duration and liquidity.

Historical returns are no guarantee for future performances. Investing in Financial markets and securities involves risk. Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Investment losses may occur and investors could lose some or all of their investment in the Fund.
Entry fees, purchase charges, custody fees, exit fees, sale charges and taxes are not included in the calculation of past performance. Ongoing charges (including management fees, administrative fees and other costs) have been taken in to account, as they are already included in the price/NAV of the fund.
The performance in euro can be lower or higher than the performance in the currency of denomination of the fund due to fluctuations in exchange rates.
