Important Information

  • Eastspring Investments - US Corporate Bond Fund is referred to the ‘Fund’
  • The Fund invests in bonds and is subject to interest rate fluctuation and exposed to credit default, valuation and credit rating risks as well as credit risk of the counterparties with which it trades. Pertaining to investments in high yield/unrated/non-investment grade bonds, these securities may be subject to higher credit risks and liquidity risks, compared with investment grade bonds, with an increased risk of loss of investments. Investment grade bonds are subject to the risks of credit rating downgrades.
  • The Fund invests in a single country, and may be subject to greater volatility compared to more diversified funds.
  • The Fund may incur substantial losses if it is unable to sell those investments with high liquidity risks at opportune times or prices.
  • The Fund may invest in mortgage backed and asset backed securities, both of which have limited recourse to the issuers. These securities are also generally illiquid and subject to market, credit and interest rate risks.
  • The Fund may offer currency hedged share classes which involve currency hedging transactions that may, in extreme cases, adversely affect the Fund's net asset value.
  • The Fund may use financial derivatives instruments only for efficient portfolio management and/or hedging purposes, which may expose the Fund to market risk, management risk, credit risk, liquidity risk, operational risk, leverage risk, valuation risk and OTC transaction risk. In adverse market situations, the use of such instruments may be ineffective and the Fund may incur significant losses.
  • The Fund's Board of Directors may, at its discretion, pay dividends out of capital or gross income while charging all or part of the fees and expenses to the Fund’s capital, resulting in higher distributable income. Thus, the Fund may effectively pay dividends out of capital. Payment of dividends out of capital (effectively or not) amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment, which may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per share.
  • Investment involves risk. Investors should not rely solely on this document in making investment decision. Past performance information presented is not indicative of future performance.
