This share class (mdist) may make monthly, gross-of-fee distributions. The distributions are not directly linked to any capital gain or income generated by the fund. This share class may distribute capital as well as income. There are potential negative tax consequences for some investors in some jurisdictions. This share class must not be seen as an alternative to a savings account or interest paying investments.
Clients profit from the return potential of corporate bonds, which is higher than that of government bonds.
Active portfolio management ensures that particular attention is paid to the prevailing economic situation, sector selection and issuers' credit ratings.
Risk is kept in check via meticulous company analysis and broad diversification of the portfolio.
The fund is particularly appropriate for clients with a medium-term investment horizon who are willing to take on more risk than for investments in government bonds in order to benefit from potentially attractive returns.
Even though the credit quality of the portfolio is investment grade, the default risk is higher with corporate bonds than with government paper. Changes in interest rates have an effect on the value of the portfolio. 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 may increase considerably in unusual market conditions. The fund can use derivatives, which may result in additional risks (particularly counterparty risk). This share class (mdist) may make monthly, gross-of-fee distributions. As a consequence, in addition to income, this share class may also distribute capital. This can have negative tax consequences for investors in some jurisdictions. Investors should seek their own tax advice.
