Fund Provider Fidelity (FIL Inv Mgmt (Lux) S.A.)
Fund Summary The fund aims to achieve income and capital growth by primarily investing in a broad range of fixed income instruments of issuers globally, including those located, listed or exposed to emerging markets, either denominated in Sterling or other currencies. Emerging market debt may include investments within, although not limited to, Latin America, Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe (including Russia) and the Middle East. Exposure to non-Sterling denominated debt securities will be largely hedged back to Sterling. The fund may make use of financial derivative instruments for investment purposes or use complex financial derivative instruments or strategies to meet the investment objectives of the fund with a level of risk which is consistent with the risk profile of the fund. Financial derivative instruments may be used to create economic exposure to the underlying asset, this may include futures, forwards, options, and swaps. The fund will use (i) index, basket or single credit default and total return swaps to gain exposure or reduce credit risk of issuers, (ii) interest rate futures, swaps or options to actively manage the level of interest rate risk and (iii) currency derivatives to hedge or gain exposure to currencies. The long and short active currency positions implemented by the fund may not be correlated with the underlying securities positions held by the fund.
