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 diversified bond portfolio provides access to the local currency Asian bond market.
The fund invests principally in local currency securities issued by Asian (ex-Japan) economies / borrowers, with a sovereign tilt.
Currency exposure, country allocation, interest rate risk, sector rotation and security selection are actively managed. This actively managed fund aims to derive alpha from duration and yield curve positioning, currency and sector management.
This diversified bond portfolio can be used to participate in the opportunities on the Asian market for fixed-income securities, as well as the opportunity for appreciation of the local Asian currencies.
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).
