Fund Objectives and Investment Policy

The objective of the Fund is to provide the best possible investment returns over a typical market cycle (rolling 3-y period) by investing in emerging market fixed income securities. 

The fund invests primarily in hard currency bonds issued by sovereigns, quasi-sovereigns and major corporates, mainly in emerging markets.

The investment manager seeks to preserve capital and generate an absolute return with low volatility. The investment strategy entails a bespoke investment methodology to implement the investment strategy by:

  • determining the risk appetite for the portfolio based on the investment manager’s global macro and EM views, and
  • constructing the portfolio by employing fundamental sovereign and corporate credit analysis with the help of a series of proprietary bespoke analytic models.

The methodology aims to identify on a relative basis those credits which in the absolute discretion of the investment manager demonstrate an appropriate ability and willingness to repay, and the risk of repayment is appropriately reflected in the implied yields of bonds or other investment products which provide exposure to these credits.
