What does this indicator mean and what are its
This rating system is based on the average fluctuations
of the prices of funds (and in the case of a new fund, its
benchmark) over the past 5 years - that is, by how much
the value of their assets taken together have moved up
and down. Historical data may not be a reliable
indication for the future.
The Fund may behave differently to the benchmark, and
the benchmark may also behave differently in the future.
This means the Fund is not guaranteed to always stay in
the same risk reward category and may shift over time.
Why is the Fund in this specific category?

Fund invests mainly in subordinated debt securities,
which, historically, tended to be volatile and had a high

may occur if an issuer fails to make principal or
interest payments when due. This risk is higher
if the Fund holds low-rated, non-investmentgrade securities.
Emerging markets risks: the risk related to
investing in countries that have less developed
political, economic, legal and regulatory
systems, and that may be impacted by
political/economic instability, lack of liquidity or
transparency, or safekeeping issues.
Liquidity risk: the risk that arises when adverse
market conditions affect the ability to sell assets
when necessary. Reduced liquidity may have a
negative impact on the price of the assets.
Risks associated with investment in contingent
convertible securities; the risk related to the trigger of
a loss absorption mechanism (i.e. principal write down
equity conversion) which may result in the
deterioration in the value of the securities held.
