Our broadest emerging market fixed income fund, run on a total return approach, utilising local and hard currency and corporate bonds.
Emerging markets are traditionally nations with social or business activities that are undergoing a process of rapid growth and industrialisation. The fund seeks to increase the value of its assets over the medium term by investing in bonds and other debt instruments issued by emerging countries or companies from emerging countries, or operating in these countries, with a solid financial structure and/or potential for earnings growth.
This fund is managed by BNP Paribas Asset Management.
Our Emerging Markets Fixed Income team is based in London and includes seven portfolio managers (each a dedicated alpha source specialist) plus a risk management team.

Past performance or achievements are not indicative of current or future returns. The investments are subject to market fluctuations and the risks inherent in investments in securities. The value of investments and the income they generate may go down as well as up and it is possible that investors will not recover their initial outlay. These internal guidelines are mentioned for your information only and are subject to change. Prospectus and KIID guidelines are leading. Investing in emerging markets, or specialised or restricted sectors is likely to be subject to a higher than average volatility due to a high degree of concentration, greater uncertainty because less information is available, there is less liquidity, or due to greater sensitivity to changes in market conditions (social, political and economic conditions). Some emerging markets offer less security than the majority of international developed markets. For this reason, services for portfolio transactions, liquidation and conservation on behalf of funds invested in emerging markets may carry greater risk.
