Overview  
Category profile
UBS Classic Bond Funds offer investors the opportunity to participate in a broadly diversified portfolio of mainly investment-grade bonds. These investment products aim to generate a regular income flow. There is a choice of funds in all major currencies and maturity structures, as well as global and corporate bond fund. UBS Classic Bond Funds are an ideal building block for fixed income portfolios or for the fixed income component of balanced portfolios.

Fund description
The fund's investments are broadly diversified within AUD bonds that predominantly have investment-grade ratings.
Active duration management takes advantage of fluctuating interest rates.
The average duration stands at around 2.5 years.
The investment objective is to generate an attractive return in line with the market.

Key benefits
Clients benefit from a broadly diversified AUD bond portfolio offering attractive return potential.
The fund combines active duration and yield-curve management with sector and security selection.
The portfolio is subject to strict risk management processes.
The return potential is higher than that of a money market fund, but the risk is lower than for long-term bond funds.

Risks
Changes in interest rates have an effect on the value of the portfolio. Medium-term investments are subject to fluctuations in value that are greater than money market instruments but less than long-term bonds. This requires corresponding risk tolerance and capacity. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. The fund can invest in less liquid assets that may be difficult to sell in the case of distressed markets. Every Fund has specific risks, which can significantly increase under unusual market conditions. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk).
