The Sub-Fund's exposure to MBSs and ABSs is limited to 40% of net assets. This includes indirect exposure gained through to-be-announced securities (TBA), which is limited to 20% of net assets. The Sub-Fund invests at least 80% of assets in investment-grade securities. The Sub-Fund makes use of derivatives to reduce various risks, for efficient portfolio management and as a way to gain exposure (long or short) to various assets, markets or other investment opportunities (including derivatives which focus on credit interest rates and foreign exchange).
