The Global High Income Bond Fund pursues high yield opportunities around the world for greater income potential. Our emerging markets and fixed income teams capitalize on proprietary fundamental credit research by going beyond surface level analysis to uncover opportunities that others might miss.
Invest in the Global High Income Bond Fund for:
- A truly global approach to high yield bonds.
As the high yield market continues to become more global, investment opportunities know no borders. While this fund invests in the bonds of below-investment-grade corporations with operations in the U.S., Europe, and emerging markets, the fund is typically made up of a larger portion of non-U.S. holdings than similar funds.
- Potential for attractive total returns and reduced foreign exchange risk.
The fund’s broad scope provides diversification and the potential to outperform traditional U.S.-focused high yield funds. An emphasis on credit selection, regional exposure, and hedge on foreign currency securities creates value and helps reduce foreign exchange risk.
- Low costs.
Our low expenses relative to peers create value for your investments.**
- Our strategic investing approach.
Co-portfolio managers Mark J. Vaselkiv and Michael Della Vedova work in concert with our fixed income and equity investment professionals around the globe to gain the firsthand insights. Our rigorous proprietary research helps us carefully manage risk and seek to maximize value for investors.

Past performance cannot guarantee future results.
All investments are subject to risk, including the possible loss of principal. Fixed-income securities are subject to credit risk (high yield bonds carry a greater default risk than higher-rated bonds), liquidity risk, call risk, and interest rate risk. As interest rates rise, bond prices generally fall. The investments in high yield bonds, bank loans, and foreign securities, including those of emerging markets, involve additional risks.
*Morningstar rated the Global High Income Bond Fund 5-, 5-stars, N/A, and N/A among 604, 604, N/A and N/A High Yield Bond funds for the overall rating and the 3-, 5-, and 10-year periods (as applicable) ending 12/31/18, respectively.
The Morningstar RatingTM for funds, or "star rating," is calculated for funds with at least a three-year history. Exchange-traded funds and open-ended mutual funds are considered a single population for comparative purposes. It is calculated based on a Morningstar Risk-Adjusted Return measure that accounts for variation in a managed product's monthly excess performance, placing more emphasis on downward variations and rewarding consistent performance. The top 10% of products in each product category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars, and the bottom 10% receive 1 star.
