The Barings Emerging Markets Debt Blended Total Return Fund is an actively managed strategy investing in a diversified portfolio of hard and local currency investment grade and high yield bonds, as well as global currencies. 


The Fund incorporates our portfolio managers’ best investment ideas and is designed to leverage the sub-asset class research and tools implemented across all of our EM strategies: EM corporates, EM sovereign hard currency, EM sovereign local currency debt and global currencies.

Who Should Invest

The Fund is designed for investors seeking a strategy that targets maximum total return alongside capital preservation and prudent investment management, with a focus on investing in a diversified portfolio of EM corporate bonds, sovereign hard currency debt, sovereign local currency debt and FX.


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.
