First State Global Bond III

The Fund aims to provide a total return greater than the return of the Citigroup World Government Bond Index (“WGBI”).
The Fund invests primarily in debt securities of issuers from countries organised, headquartered or having their primary business operations in the WGBI Index, although in the event of unusual market conditions, investments in countries not included in the WGBI Index may be included and may constitute up to 50 per cent of the net assets of the Fund. The Fund will normally invest at least 70 per cent of its net assets in investment grade debt securities (rated as Baa3 or above by Moody’s Investor Services, Inc or BBB– or above by Standard & Poor’s Corporation, or other recognised rating agencies), or, if unrated, of comparable quality as determined by the Investment Manager. The Fund is not constrained as to the maximum maturity of its portfolio securities.
