Investment Objectives

This fund’s objective is to earn income as well as provide the potential for capital appreciation by investing primarily in fixed income securities issued in or by, or have economic exposure to, emerging market countries, and that are denominated in U.S. dollars, other leading trading currencies or local currencies.

Investment Strategy

These are the strategies the portfolio manager uses to try to achieve the fund’s objective: invests in a diversified pool of fixed income securities, such as bonds and debentures issued by governments and corporations or obtains exposure to such securities; employs a research-driven, relative value process focused on regional selection, sector selections, security selection and yield curve positioning while also considering the fund’s overall duration positioning.
