The Subfunds invest predominantly in bonds, notes or other similar fixed- or floating-rate interest-bearing securities. The Portfolio Manager organises the individual Subfunds on the basis of the attractiveness of the specific bond markets during the launch period.
The Subfund may also invest indirectly via structured products (e.g. certificates, ABS, MBS). Such investments may not exceed 20% of the Subfund’s net assets. The Sub¬fund will not purchase any structured products issued by issuers domiciled in the US.
Apart from the money market instruments, all the instruments used shall take account of the end of the Subfunds’ term in respect of their maturity and have no maturities occurring later than the end of the Subfunds’ term. As a consequence, the Subfunds may hold up to 100% of the Fund’s assets in liquid funds and money market instruments around six months prior to the end of the term
