Investment Objectives

The investment objective of the Fund is to provide a high level of current income with the potential for capital gains. The Fund will invest its assets primarily in global fixed income instruments from both developed and emerging markets. The Fund can invest across all sectors and credit qualities but will be primarily invested in investment grade securities rated BBB- and above by Standard & Poor’s (or its equivalent by qualified rating agencies).

Investment Strategy

The Portfolio Sub-Advisor and Commodity Futures Portfolio Manager apply an investment process based on a rigorous global top-down approach consisting of allocating the active risk of the portfolio taking into consideration duration management, country and yield curve decisions, sovereign bonds, credit allocations and currency management. During normal periods, these factors are expected to have low correlation and improve the portfolio diversification.
