The Emerging Market Bond Index Global Diversified currently includes USD denominated Brady bonds, Eurobonds and traded loans issued by sovereign and quasi-sovereign entities. It is a market-capitalization-weighted index and provides a more evenly distributed weighting among the countries. It defines emerging markets countries with a combination of World-Bank-defined per capita income brackets and each country’s debt-restructuring history. This allows the index to include a number of higher-rated countries that international investors have nevertheless considered part of the emerging markets universe. The JP Morgan Government Bond Index-Emerging Market (GBI-EM) Index is a comprehensive emerging market debt index that tracks local currency bonds issued by emerging market governments; all eligible countries containing eligible instruments will be included regardless of capital controls, taxes, or access issues. The maximum weight to a country is capped at 10%. The JP Morgan Corporate Emerging Markets Bond Index (CEMBI) Diversified is a market capitalization weighted, liquid global benchmark for US-dollar corporate emerging market bonds representing Asia, Latin America, Europe and the Middle East/Africa. The index defines emerging market countries with a combination of World-Bank-defined per capita income brackets and relevant OECD status. These two criteria allow it to include a broader list of countries that international investors may consider as part of the emerging markets universe. The CEMBI Diversified is geared toward managers who face limitations on the amount of portfolio exposure they can take to individual issuers/countries. The CEMBI Diversified results in well-distributed, more balanced weightings for countries included in the index.The UBS Global Convertible Focus Index is a free, independent, market capitalization weighted, total return index managed by a third party, Mace Advisers. It measures the performance of the liquid global convertible market. The Merrill Lynch Global High Yield Constrained Index tracks the performance of below investment grade bonds of corporate issuers domiciled in countries with an investment grade foreign currency long-term debt rating (based on a composite of Moody’s and S&P). The index is weighted by outstanding issuance, but constrained such that the percentage of any one issuer may not represent more than 2% of the Index. It is not possible to invest directly in an index.
Mutual fund investing involves risk. Principal loss is possible. Investments in debt securities typically decrease in value when interest rates rise. This risk is usually greater for longer-term debt securities. Investments in lower-rated and non-rated securities presents a greater risk of loss to principal and interest than higher-rated securities. Investments in foreign securities involve greater volatility and political, economic and currency risks and differences in accounting methods. These risks are greater for emerging markets. Derivatives such as futures, forwards, and swaps involve risks different from, and in certain cases, greater than the risks presented by more traditional investments. Non-diversified funds may be more volatile than diversified funds that hold a greater number of securities. Absolute return funds may not achieve their goals and are not intended to outperform stocks and bonds during strong market rallies and may underperform during periods of strong positive market performance.
