Risk Considerations

Past performance is not indicative of future results. For details of the investment risks, see the current prospectus.

Please note that any dividends which the Fund may receive may be subject to withholding tax. The benchmark does not take into account the effects of tax and the deduction is therefore not reflected in the benchmark return illustrated herein.

The investment objective and performance benchmark is a target only and not a guarantee of the Fund performance. The index is unmanaged and cannot be invested in directly. Index returns assume reinvestment of dividends and capital gains and unlike fund returns do not reflect fees or expenses. Adverse movements in currency exchange rates can result in a decrease in return and a loss of capital. Investments of each portfolio may be fully hedged into its base currency potentially reducing currency risks but may expose the portfolio to other risks such as a default of counterparty.

Debt securities of Emerging Market Countries may be subject to greater risk of loss of principal and interest than debt securities issued by obligors in developed countries and may be considered to be predominantly speculative with respect to the issuer's capacity to pay interest and repay principal. They may also be generally subject to greater risk than securities issued by obligors in developed countries in the event of deteriorating general economic conditions.

The market for debt securities of Emerging Market Countries may be thinner and less active than that for debt securities issued by obligors in developed countries, which can adversely affect the prices at which debt securities of Emerging Market Countries are sold. E

conomies in Emerging Markets are generally less well regulated and may be adversely affected by trade barriers, exchange controls, protectionist measures and political / social instability. There is a risk of volatility due to lower liquidity and the availability of reliable information.

Monthly and weekly Distributing Classes will distribute out of income and may also pay out of capital which will be eroded; investors in these classes should be aware that the payment out of capital may have different tax implications from distributions of income and should seek tax advice. In respect of the C, C1, C2 and B share classes a contingent deferred sales charge may be payable to the Investment Manager in line with the provisions of the Fund’s prospectus.
