    Performance for the I EUR (Hedged) Acc unit class in EUR, launched on 02 October 2017. Source: Lipper. Performance is calculated on a Net Asset Value (NAV) to NAV basis and assumes all fund charges have been taken and that all income generated by the investments, after deduction of tax, remains in the fund. This fund has adopted a single swinging price, this means that on any given day the single dealing price will be set at either bid, offer or somewhere in between, based on whether there was a net inflow or outflow into or out of the Fund. The past performance depicted in this factsheet is based on that dealing price and therefore may appear more volatile than it would otherwise be if we were to show the notional bid or offer performance, this is as a result of the daily swing.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    This fund holds bonds that are traded through agents, brokers or investment banks matching buyers and sellers. This makes the bonds less easy to buy and sell than investments traded on an exchange. In exceptional circumstances the fund may not be able to sell bonds and may defer withdrawals, or suspend dealing. The Directors can only delay paying out if it is in the interests of all investors and with the permission of the fund depositary.

    The fund invests directly or indirectly in bonds which are issued by companies or governments. If these companies or governments experience financial difficulty, they may be unable to pay back some or all of the interest, original investment or other payments that they owe. If this happens, the value of the fund may fall.

    Prices of the ABS/MBS may be volatile, and will generally fluctuate due to a variety of factors that are inherently difficult to predict. In addition, the terms of the ABS/MBS may restrict its sale in particular circumstances.

    This fund invests in countries where investment markets are considered to be less developed. This means that investments are generally riskier than those in developed markets because they: may not be as well regulated; may be more difficult to buy and sell; may have less reliable arrangements for the safekeeping of investments; or may be more exposed to political and taxation uncertainties. The value of the fund can go up or down more often and by larger amounts than funds that invest in developed countries, especially in the short term.

    The fund could lose money if any institution providing services such as acting as counterparty to derivatives or other instruments, becomes unwilling or unable to meet its obligations to the fund.

    Derivatives are highly sensitive to changes in the value of the asset on which they are based and can increase the size of losses and gains. The impact to the fund can be greater where derivatives are used in an extensive or complex way.

    The fund may have underlying investments that are valued in currencies that are different from sterling (British pounds). Exchange rate fluctuations will impact the value of your investment. Currency hedging techniques may be applied to reduce this impact but may not entirely eliminate it.

    We may take some or all of the ongoing charges from the fund's capital rather than the fund's income. This increases the amount of income, but it reduces the growth potential and may lead to a fall in the value of the fund.

    Investment returns on bonds are sensitive to trends in interest rate movements. Such changes will affect the value of your investment.
