Objective

The investment objective of the Global Bond Ex-US Fund is to seek to maximise total return, consistent with preservation of capital and prudent investment management.

Overview

Fund Description

The Global Bond Ex-US Fund is a diverse actively managed portfolio of global fixed-income securities. The fund invests primarily in investment grade bonds denominated in major world currencies. The average duration of the fund will normally vary within +/- 3 years of the benchmark. The non-US dollar exposure is limited to 20% of total assets.

Investor Benefits

This fund offers efficient exposure to a sector that can be difficult to access directly and potential for enhanced returns through diversification.

The Fund Advantage

The fund captures the returns of global bonds but limits volatility by limiting currency exposure as it seeks to outperform its benchmark.
