The Fund invests in a diversified portfolio of securities of issuers located in or with a significant exposure to the emerging markets of Europe.

The Fund is subject to risks, such as investment, equities and equity-related securities, liquidity, counterparty, currency risks, and the risks of investing in small and mid-capitalisation companies and convertible bonds.

The Fund’s investment may be concentrated in emerging Europe (including Russia) and the Fund may be subject to higher volatility risk and the risks of Eurozone sovereign debt crisis. Investing in emerging and frontier markets may involve increased risks, including liquidity, currency/currency control, political and economic uncertainties, legal and taxation, settlement, custody and volatility risks. Investing in Russia may be subject to special risks, including economic and political unrest, lack of transparent and reliable legal system and lower standard of corporate governance.

The Fund may invest in derivatives for investment or efficient portfolio management purposes which may involve counterparty/credit, liquidity, valuation, volatility and over-the-counter transaction risks. Exposure to derivatives may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Fund.

Dividends may be paid out of unrealised capital gains at the discretion of the Manager which would effectively represent paying dividend out of capital. This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Payment of dividends may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value of the Fund per unit.

Investors may suffer substantial loss of their investments in the Fund.

Notification of Fund Suspension

The calculation of Net Asset Value and dealings in the Barings Eastern Europe Fund are currently suspended.
As of 1 March 2022, Baring International Fund Managers (Ireland) Limited made the decision to temporarily suspend the calculation of net asset value and dealings in the Barings Eastern Europe Fund “the Fund” until further notice. This decision has been made with the agreement of the Fund’s Depositary, to protect the interest of Unitholders.

 For further information, please refer to the documents below:  

In light of the exceptional and adverse market conditions relating to the current situation in Russia and Ukraine, we are seeking a side pocket solution to segregate illiquid assets, in line with the Central Bank of Ireland’s guidelines (which is also subject to investor vote). Based on this approach, the remaining liquid assets, will be transferred from the suspended fund to a new fund whilst the original fund will continue to hold illiquid assets. Our intention is to liquidate the original fund and distribute proceeds upon the re-establishment of a market mechanism. The new fund will be actively managed and priced daily.

We believe the above arrangements are in the best interests of all unitholders, giving unitholders access to the liquid assets which are currently suspended from trading. 

In the meantime, Barings continues to monitor the situation in Russia and will update its FAQs on this topic as appropriate.


The Barings Eastern Europe Fund (“the Fund”) is an actively managed equity strategy. The investment objective of the Fund is to achieve long-term capital growth primarily through investment in a diversified portfolio of Emerging European equity securities.
