The Fund may have a concentration in investments with an ESG focus, and its value may be more volatile than a more diverse portfolio of investments. The Fund’s investments may be subject to ESG risks. The ESG risks may not necessarily have an impact on the Fund’s returns, as it would depend on other factors.

Using FDIs may expose the Fund to market risk, management risk, credit risk, counterparty risk, liquidity risk, volatility risk, operational risk, leverage risk, valuation risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. The use of such instruments may be ineffective and the Fund may incur significant losses.

  • The Fund invests primarily in the Asia and may be more volatile than a diversified fund.

  • The Fund’s investments in bonds in Asian markets may be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity compared to more developed markets.

  • 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.
