Fund overview
Focusing on the fundamentals
The EUR Investment Grade Credit Fund seeks to generate total returns through fundamental credit research combined with active top-down allocation decisions within a controlled risk framework.

The fund seeks total return, maximising investment income whilst preserving capital, by investing at least two-thirds of its assets in investment-grade euro-denominated credit debt securities.

Key differentiators

  • Focuses on stable-to-improving European credits and structures with attractive yield profiles
  • Implements a flexible benchmark-aware rather than benchmark-centric approach to focus on less efficient sectors of the market
  • Leverages a seasoned and stable team that has experienced multiple credit cycles and regime shifts
  • Uses a proprietary ESGiQ (ESG Information Quotient) rating system to capture key issues that may be mispriced

The team’s global bond strategies target outperformance through interest rate and currency positioning. The credit-focused strategies target outperformance via security selection.

Key risks

Contingent convertible bonds risk: These instruments can be converted from debt into equity because of the occurrence of certain predetermined trigger events including when the issuer is in crisis resulting in possible price fluctuations and potential liquidity concerns.

Currency risk: Currency exchange rates may fluctuate significantly over short periods of time and can be affected unpredictably by intervention (or the failure to intervene) by relevant governments or central banks, or by currency controls or political developments.

Debt securities risk: Debt securities are subject to credit risk and interest rate risk and are affected by an issuer’s ability to make interest payments or repay principal when due.

Asset-backed securities risk: Asset-backed securities may be more sensitive to changes in interest rates and may exhibit added volatility, known as extension risk, and are subject to prepayment risk.

High yield securities risk: High yield securities are rated below investment grade, are predominantly speculative, have a much greater risk of default and may be more volatile than higher-rated securities of similar maturity.

ESG risk: Applying an ESG screen for security selection may result in lost opportunity in a security or industry resulting in possible underperformance relative to peers. ESG screens are dependent on third-party data and errors in the data may result in the incorrect inclusion or exclusion of a security.

Geographic concentration risk: Investments concentrated in specific geographic regions and markets may be subject to greater volatility due to economic downturns and other factors affecting the specific geographic regions.

Global investment risk: Securities of certain jurisdictions may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value and may be affected by uncertainties such as international political developments, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of countries in which an investment may be made.

Leverage risk: The use of certain types of financial derivative instruments may create leverage which may increase share price volatility.

Investors should note that, relative to the expectations of the Autorité des Marchés Financiers, this fund presents disproportionate communication on the consideration of non-financial criteria in its investment policy.
 

The ongoing charges/total expense ratio (TER) reflects annual total operating expenses for the class, excludes transaction costs and is expressed as a percentage of net asset value. The figure shown is from current KID. The investment manager has committed to reimburse the Sub-Fund when the ongoing charges exceed the agreed upon TER. Ongoing charges may vary over time.
 

Any benchmark referenced is for comparative purposes only, unless specifically referenced otherwise in this material and/or in the prospectus, under the Sub-Funds’ Investment Objective and Policy.
 

†Promotes environmental and social characteristics but does not have a sustainable investment objective
 

†While the Sub-Funds listed above have access to both internal and external ESG research and integrate financially material sustainability risks into their investment decision-making processes, ESG-related factors are considered but not determinative, permitting the relevant Sub-Investment Managers to invest in issuers that do not embrace ESG; as such, sustainability risks may have a more material impact on the value of the Sub-Fund’s investments in the medium to long term. The investments underlying these Sub-Funds do not take into account the EU criteria for environmentally sustainable economic activities.
 

The Morningstar Rating™ for funds, or star rating, is calculated for managed products (including mutual funds, variable annuity and variable life subaccounts, exchange-traded funds, closed-end funds, and separate accounts) with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The Morningstar Rating does not include any adjustment for sales loads. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating for a managed product is derived from a weighted average of the performance figures associated with its 3-, 5-, and 10-year (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. The weights are: 100% 3-year rating for 36–59 months of total returns, 60% 5-year rating/40% 3-year rating for 60–119 months of total returns, and 50% 10-year rating/30% 5-year rating/20% 3-year rating for 120 or more months of total returns. While the 10-year overall star rating formula seems to give the most weight to the 10-year period, the most recent 3-year period actually has the greatest impact because it is included in all three rating periods.
