Fund Description

The fund's investment goal is to seek current income with capital appreciation as a secondary goal. Under normal market conditions, the fund invests at least 80% of its net assets in a non-diversified portfolio of bonds issued by governments or government related entities that are located in emerging market countries, as well as bonds issued by emerging market corporate entities.

Strategy Statement

"Emerging market bonds provide exposure to different interest rate and currency dynamics, as well as attractive yields offered by developing countries around the world."
