  • Risk Statistics Definitions:
    Risk Adjusted Alpha :
    Measures the difference between a fund’s actual returns and its expected performance, given its level of risk as measured by beta. 
    Beta :Measures the sensitivity of the fund to the movements of its benchmark.
    Standard Deviation :Measures the risk or volatility of an investment’s return over a particular time period; the greater the number, the greater the risk.
    Information ratio :The ratio of annualized expected residual return to residual risk.
    Tracking error :Dispersal of differences between the returns obtained by the Fund and the benchmark variation.
    R-squared :Measures the strength of the linear relationship between the fund and its benchmark. R-Squared at 100 implies perfect linear relationship and zero implies no relationship exists.
    Treynor ratio :Measure of risk adjusted portfolio performance where Beta acts as a proxy for the level of risk associated with a given portfolio.
    Sharpe Ratio :A risk-adjusted measure, calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the fund’s historical risk-adjusted performance.

  • Percentages are based on total portfolio as of date displayed and are subject to change at any time. Holdings and allocations breakdowns are provided for information purposes only and should not be deemed a recommendation to buy or sell the securities mentioned or securities in the industries shown. Due to rounding totaled percentages may not equal 100%.

    A temporary negative position may be due to unsettled trade activity and/or the use of particular investment policies as allowed by the prospectus.

  • Definitions:
    Current yield (%) : 
    Current yield (gross of expenses), is not representative for an individual share class as the yield does not deduct the Total Expense Ratio or any applicable taxes and other locally costs.
    Yield to worst (%) :Yield to worst (YTW) is the lowest potential yield that can be received on a bond without the issuer actually defaulting. 
    Cash flow yield (%) :Cash flow yield takes into account capital expenditures and other ongoing costs a business incurs against its market price per share. It is based on a snapshot of the portfolio on that day and does not include any subscription charges and investors may be subject to tax on distributions.
    Weighted average life : The average number of years for which each component of unpaid principal on a bond, loan or mortgage remains outstanding. The weighted average life calculation provides an aggregate figure that shows how many years it will take to pay off half the outstanding principal on a bond portfolio.
    Effective Duration :Average Duration equals the weighted average maturity of all the cash flows in the portfolio and gives an indication of the sensitivity of a portfolio’s bond prices to a change in interest rates. The higher the duration, the more sensitive the portfolio is to interest rate changes. Effective Duration is a calculation for bonds with embedded options (Not every portfolio will purchase bonds with embedded options). It takes into account the expected change in cash flows caused by the option, as interest rates change. If a portfolio does not hold bonds with embedded options, then the Effective Duration will be equal to the Average Duration.

  • Credit Quality: Nationally Recognised Statistical Rating Organisation’s (NRSRO’s) assess the likelihood of bond issuers defaulting on a bond’s coupon and principal payments. The credit quality allocation by Western Asset Management assigns each security the higher rating from three NRSRO’s (Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s Investor Services and Fitch Ratings, Ltd.). If only one NRSRO assigns a rating, that rating will be used. Securities that are not rated by all three NRSRO’s are reflected as such. The lower the overall credit rating, the riskier the portfolio. The credit rating is expressed as a regular letter rating (from high to low quality): AAA, AA, A, BBB, BB, ...D.

One of the world’s leading global fixed income managers. Founded in 1971, the firm is known for team management and proprietary research, supported by robust risk management and a long-term fundamental value approach.
