UBS Emerging Market Funds Investors are benefiting from above-average return opportunities over time, reducing risk exposure through diversification and investing with experienced professionals.
The fund invests mainly in government and selected corporate bonds of issuers with varying ratings from Central and Eastern European countries.
The bonds in the portfolio are denominated mainly in euro and European national currencies.
The investment objective is to make pro-active use of earnings potential in the bond markets of Central and Eastern European countries and in changes in their exchange rates.
This share class distributes a constant percentage share of the NAV, not a constant amount.
This share class is designed for investors who want to profit from performance opportunities on the financial markets and at the same time wish more stable distributions at a specific percentage level to cover recurring liquidity needs.
As the distributions are substantial, this share class is not designed for investors who want to build wealth. The latter may prefer the accumulating share class.
This share class must not be seen as an alternative to a savings account or fixed-interest paying investments.
The percentage distribution rate of this share class is unrelated to the interest or other income generated in the fund. The distribution is a percentage payment of the current amount of investment.
It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital.
This share class may distribute capital as well as income. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. See risk section below .
The fund offers an opportunity to profit from the performance of emerging economies in Europe.
Given its low correlation to the established bond markets, the fund is appropriate as a means of diversifying traditional portfolios.
Interest rate and currency risks are actively managed in order to benefit from fluctuations in the market.
The fund is designed for risk-aware investors with a long-term outlook who want to enhance the earnings potential of their bond portfolios.
As with offerings from borrowers in emerging markets, bonds of convergence countries offer higher return potential but are also exposed to higher risk than established investment regions. These risks include lower market transparency, regulatory hurdles, corporate governance, potential for high market volatility and political and social challenges. This fund is appropriate for risk-conscious, long-term investors. The quarterly %cqdist% distributing share classes may distribute capital as well as income. It is possible that the distributions result in an erosion of assets and a reduction of invested capital. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. Investors in some jurisdictions may incur a higher rate of tax on distributed capital than on any capital gains which are realised on disposal of fund shares. Some investors may therefore choose to invest in the accumulating (-acc) instead of the distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors may be taxed at a later point in time on income and capital arising on accumulating (-acc) share classes compared to distributing (-dist) share classes. Investors should seek their own tax advice.
