Objective

The Barings Emerging Markets Debt Short Duration Fund is an actively managed strategy seeking to provide return in the form of income and capital appreciation. The fund manager seeks to achieve 3-month LIBOR +200 basis points (bps)*.

* There is no guarantee that the Fund will achieve the targeted return rate.

Strategy

The fund seeks to achieve its investment objective by investing primarily in a diversified portfolio of short duration hard currency and local currency investment grade and high yield bonds from EM based issuers, with a focus on investment grade securities.

Who Should Invest

The fund is designed for investors seeking a strategy that targets maximum total return coupled with protection from rising interest rates, with a focus on investing in a diversified portfolio of primarily investment grade-rated EM corporate, sovereign and local debt.

Risks

The value of investments and the income they provide can fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. The fund invests in markets where economic and regulatory risk can be significant. The fund may hold assets that are not always readily saleable. The fund may have to lower the selling price, sell other investments or forego another more appealing investment opportunity as a result. The fund may use derivatives for investment purposes. These are complex instruments that carry the risk of causing increased volatility in the value of the fund.
