*Gross of fees over rolling 3 years. This is an aim and not a guaranteed.


General Risks:

The Fund’s investment objective will not necessarily be achieved and investors are not certain to make profits; losses may be made. Past performance should not be taken as a guide to the future. Performance would be lower had initial charges been included and will vary between different share classes dependent upon their applicable charges. If any currency differs from the investor's home currency, returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations.


Specific Risks:

Currency exchange: Changes in the relative values of different currencies may adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investments and any related income.

Default: There is a risk that the issuers of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) may not be able to meet interest payments nor repay the money they have borrowed. The worse the credit quality of the issuer, the greater the risk of default and therefore investment loss.

Derivative counterparty: A counterparty to a derivative transaction may fail to meet its obligations to the Fund thereby leading to financial loss.

Derivatives: The use of derivatives may increase the overall risk in the Fund by multiplying the effect of both gains and losses. This may lead to large changes in the value of the Fund and potentially large financial loss.

Developing market: Some of the countries in which the Fund invests may have less developed legal, political, economic and/or other systems. These markets carry a higher risk of financial loss than those in countries generally regarded as being more developed.

Interest rate: The value of fixed income investments (e.g. bonds) tends to decrease when interest rates and/or inflation rises.

Investing in China: Investment in mainland China may involve a higher risk of financial loss when compared with countries generally regarded as being more developed.

Multi-asset investment: The Fund is subject to possible financial losses in multiple markets and may underperform more focused funds

Bond and Multi-asset funds may invest more than 35% of their assets in securities issued or guaranteed by an EEA state.
