Investment objective and policy

The fund invests mainly in fixed income, variable income and convertible bonds denominated in USD, which are issued by first-rate issuers. Its key objective is to achieve a regular income.

Management report - 2nd Quarter 2017

The USD bond market fared rather well in the second quarter, with the 10-year benchmark yield falling from 2.39% to 2.31% from the end of March to end-June, driven mainly by the fact that 12-month inflation fell from 2.4% at end-March to 1.6% at end-June. However, as statistics on economic growth (+2.1% p.a.) and the job market (with an unemployment rate at 4.9%) were very solid, the US Federal Reserve stuck to its monetary policy stance, raising its key rate from 0.25% at mid-June to 1.25%.
