The fund's country, interest rate and currency exposures are actively managed under strict risk control with the aim to benefit from market movements.

The fund is broadly diversified across selected issuers from various emerging countries, aiming for an optimal risk-to-return profile.

The fund offers higher return potential than a high-quality money market portfolio and therefore bears a higher risk. In addition, emerging markets are at an early stage of development which can typically involve a high level of price volatility and other specific risks such as lower market transparency, regulatory hurdles, corporate governance and political and social challenges. All investments are subject to market fluctuations. 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).
