31-Jan-2020 - Michael Conelius, Portfolio Manager ,
Slowing global growth remains a headwind, although accommodative monetary policy globally and the significant stock of negative-yielding debt in developed markets have been supportive for emerging markets debt. Despite exposure to the global risk environment, we remain cautiously optimistic on the asset class as it offers one of the highest-yielding opportunities in the fixed income market and has been increasingly durable through market corrections.

Investment Objective

To maximise the value of its shares through both growth in the value of, and income from, its investments. The fund invests mainly in a diversified portfolio of bonds of all types from emerging market issuers.

Investment Approach

  • Focus primarily on sovereign debt.
  • Integrate proprietary credit research and relative value analysis.
  • Establish independent credit rating at the country and corporate issuer level.
  • Add value through active country allocation and individual security selection decisions.
  • Limit risk through diversification.
  • Employ long-term investment horizon.
  • Environmental, social and governance ("ESG") factors with particular focus on those considered most likely to have a material impact on the performance of the holdings or potential holdings in the funds’ portfolio are assessed. These ESG factors, which are incorporated into the investment process alongside financials, valuation, macro-economics and other factors, are components of the investment decision. Consequently, ESG factors are not the sole driver of an investment decision but are instead one of several important inputs considered during investment analysis.

Portfolio Construction

  • Diversified portfolio structure: typically 200-300 securities
  • Duration bands: managed within +/- 1 year of the benchmark
  • Average credit quality: BB
  • Country exposure will range between 0% and 10%

We are more defensively positioned relative to our history. We have reduced frontier market exposure, although we maintain overweight positions in high-conviction frontier countries such as Oman, Angola, and the Bahamas. We also have underweight positions in more vulnerable markets in the middle of the risk distribution, such as South Africa, Turkey, and Brazil. We maintain our structural underweight exposure to low-beta, investment-grade countries, but are buying into improved valuations in other investment grade markets, such as Chile, Saudi Arabia, and Indonesia.
31-Oct-2015 - Michael Conelius, Portfolio Manager ,
Given our expectations for continued U.S. dollar strength, we maintained a low and defensive level of non-benchmark currency exposure.
