Investment Objectives

The Fund's objective is to maximize total returns by investing primarily in fixed income securities of emerging market issuers.

Investment Strategy

The portfolio manager employs a top-down fundamental approach that is based on currency, country and category allocation, and duration management, and is complemented with a bottom-up approach to security selection. The portfolio manager takes a diversified approach to maximize the total return of the Fund by expanding beyond emerging market sovereign debt and investing in the entire emerging market fixed-income opportunity set.
