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.
The fund invests primarily in securities denominated in USD and local currencies issued by Asian economies/borrowers (ex Japan).
Country selection, credit ratings and interest rate and currency risks are actively managed in order to benefit from market volatility.
When markets are rising, the fund aims to achieve relatively high returns, whereas it proactively reduces and/or hedges high-risk assets to protect against price losses in anticipation of a downswing.
This diversified bond portfolio can be used to participate in the opportunities on the Asian market for fixed-income securities.
The fund is actively managed in accordance with market conditions. This allows the portfolio to be dynamically adjusted throughout market cycles.
The fund offers higher return potential than a high-quality bond 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. Corresponding risk tolerance and capacity are required. 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).
