Risk warning

Past performance is not a guide to future performance. • Do remember that the value of an investment and the income from it can fall as well as rise and you may not get back the amount originally invested. • The Fund has holdings which are denominated in currencies other than Sterling and may be affected by movements in exchange rates. Consequently the value of an investment may rise or fall in line with the exchange rates. • Investments in emerging markets may involve a higher element of risk due to less well regulated markets and political and economic instability. • Fluctuations in interest rates are likely to affect the value of the bonds and other fixed-interest securities held by the Fund. If long-term interest rates rise, the value of your shares is likely to fall. • The fund can invest in derivatives. Derivatives are used to protect against currencies, credit and interests rates move or for investment purposes. There is a risk that losses could be made on derivative positions or that the counterparties could fail to complete on transactions. If you need to access your money quickly it is possible that, in difficult market conditions, it could be hard to sell holdings in corporate bond funds. This is because there is low trading activity in the markets for many of the bonds held by these funds. The Distribution Yield is also the Underlying Yield for this fund.

• The information and opinions provided should not be construed as advice for investment in any product or security mentioned.  • Always research your own investments and consult with a regulated investment adviser before investing.
