Fund AIM

The Fund seeks to maximise total return through a high level of income and capital appreciation, by taking a flexible investment approach in global bond markets across the credit spectrum, including emerging market countries that the manager finds most attractive, through both long exposure and short exposure (via derivatives). This may result in the fund being highly concentrated in one, or a small number of, countries, sectors or asset classes. Such asset classes may include, but are not limited to, mortgage-backed securities.

  • Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. Source for performance figures - Legg Mason. NAV to NAV, with gross income reinvested without initial charges but reflecting annual management fees. Sales charges, taxes and other locally applied costs have not been deducted, had they been deducted performance results would be lower. Investment return and principal value of an investment in the Fund will fluctuate, and shares may be worth more or less than their original cost when redeemed. Comparisons to relevant indexes and peer groups are included as a standard against which the performance of a fund can be measured. Index and peer group returns do not reflect any fees, expenses or sales charges. An investor cannot invest directly in an index or peer group.

  • Portfolio holdings are subject to change at any time without notice. This information is provided for information purposes only and should not be construed as a recommendation to purchase or sell any security. The summation of the "Total Net assets %" may not equal 100%. Any difference is due to the portfolio's allocation to cash and cash equivalents.

    Derivatives, if any, such as options and futures, which can be illiquid, may disproportionately increase losses and have a potentially large impact on Fund performance.
