Important Notice

Investment in funds/sub-funds may involve risks and may not be suitable for all investors. Past performance is not indicative of future results. Investors should read carefully the relevant fund documents for details including but not limited to the risk factors before making any investment decisions. Printed copies of the fund documents or other information of the funds/sub-funds are available from the distributors of the respective funds/sub-funds and BOCHK Asset Management Limited. The above information does not constitute any offer or recommendation to implement or liquidate an investment or to carry out any other transaction. It should not be used as a basis for any investment decision or other decision. Any investment decision should be based on appropriate professional advice specific to the investors’ needs.

Market risk

  • The Sub-Fund’s investment portfolio may fall in value due to any of the key risk factors below and therefore your investment in the Sub-Fund may suffer losses. There is no guarantee of the repayment of principal or dividend or distribution payments.

ESG investment policy risk

  • The Sub-Fund may invest based on the ESG Criteria as set out in the investment policy. The use of ESG Criteria may affect the Sub-Fund’s investment performance and, as such, the Sub-Fund may perform differently compared to similar funds that do not use such criteria. For instance, ESG Criteria used in the Sub-Fund’s investment policy may result in the Sub-Fund forgoing opportunities to buy certain securities when it might otherwise be advantageous to do so, and/or selling securities due to ESG Criteria when it might be disadvantageous to do so. As such, the application of ESG Criteria may restrict the ability of the Sub-Fund to acquire or dispose of its investments at a price and time that it wishes to do so, and may therefore result in a loss to the Sub-Fund.
  • The use of ESG Criteria may also result in the Sub-Fund being concentrated in companies with a focus on ESG Criteria and its value may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio of investments.
  • The selection of securities may involve the Manager’s subjective judgement. There is also a lack of standardised taxonomy of ESG Criteria evaluation methodology and the way in which different funds apply such ESG Criteria may vary.
  • The Manager and the Investment Advisor’s ESG process takes into account ESG data and research from external data providers, which may be incomplete, inaccurate or unavailable. As a result, there is a risk associated with the assessment of a security or issuer based on such information or data.

Risks associated with debt securities rated below investment/recognized grade or unrated

  • The Sub-Fund may invest up to 50% of its latest available Net Asset Value in debt securities rated below investment/recognized grade or unrated. Such securities are generally subject to lower liquidity, higher volatility and greater risk of loss of principal and interest than high-rated debt securities.
  • Investments in such securities may also be subject to greater credit risk. If the issuer of a security is in default with respect to interest or principal payments, the Sub-Fund may lose its entire investment.
  • Adverse events or market conditions may have a larger negative impact on the prices of non-investment/non-recognized grade or unrated debt securities than on higher-rated debt securities. Such debt securities in emerging markets may also be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity compared to debt securities in more developed markets.

General risks relating to debt securities

  • Credit risk: Investment in debt securities is subject to the credit/default risk of the issuers and guarantors (if applicable) of the debt securities that the Sub-Fund may invest in.
  • Interest rate risk: Debt securities are subject to interest rate risk. Generally, the prices of debt securities rise when interest rates fall, vice versa.
  • Volatility and liquidity risk: The debt securities in certain region may be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity compared to more developed markets. The price of securities traded in such markets may be subject to fluctuations. The bid and offer spreads of the price of such securities may be large and the Sub-Fund may incur significant trading costs.
  • Downgrading risk: Investment/recognized grade securities or their issuers and guarantors (if applicable) may be subject to the risk of being downgraded. In the event of downgrading, the value of the Sub-Fund may be adversely affected. The Manager may or may not be able to dispose of the debt instruments which (or the issuers or the guarantors of which) are being downgraded.
  • Sovereign debt risk: The Sub-Fund’s investment in securities issued or guaranteed by government may be exposed to political, social and economic risks. In adverse situations the sovereign issuers may not be able or willing to repay the principal and/or interest when due or may request the Sub-Fund to participate in restructuring such debts. The Sub-Fund may suffer significant losses when there is a default of sovereign debt issuers.
  • Valuation risk: Valuation of the Sub-Fund’s investments may involve uncertainties and judgmental determinations. If such valuation turns out to be incorrect, this may affect the Net Asset Value calculation of the Sub-Fund.
  • Risk related to credit ratings: Credit ratings assigned by rating agencies are subject to limitations and do not guarantee the creditworthiness of the security, issuer and/or guarantor (if applicable) at all times.
  • “Dim Sum” bond market risks: The “Dim Sum” bond market is still a relatively small market which is more susceptible to volatility and illiquidity. The operation of the “Dim Sum” bond market as well as new issuances could be disrupted causing a fall in the Net Asset Value of the Sub-Fund should there be any promulgation of new rules which limit or restrict the ability of issuers to raise RMB by way of bond issuances and/or reversal or suspension of the liberalization of the offshore RMB (CNH) market by the relevant regulator(s).

Equity investment/volatility risk

  • Equity investment is subject to general market risks that the market value of the stocks may go down as well as up. Prices of equity securities may be volatile, due to various factors such as changes in investment sentiment, political and economic conditions, and issuer-specific factors. If the market value of equity securities in which the Sub-Fund invests in goes down, investors may suffer substantial losses.

Currency risk

  • The Sub-Fund may invest in securities quoted in currencies other than the Sub-Fund’s base currency (US Dollar). Also a class of units may be designated in a currency other than the base currency of the Sub-Fund. The Sub-Fund’s value may fluctuate in response to fluctuations in exchanges rates between such currencies and the US Dollar and by changes in exchange rate controls.

Risks of investing in convertible bonds

  • Convertible bonds are a hybrid between debt and equity, permitting holders to convert into shares in the company issuing the bond at a specified future date. As such, convertibles will be exposed to equity movement and greater volatility than straight bond investments. Investments in convertible bonds are subject to the same interest rate risk, credit risk, liquidity risk and prepayment risk associated with comparable straight bond investments.

Risks relating to dynamic asset allocation strategy

  • The dynamic asset allocation of the Sub-Fund may not achieve the desired results under all circumstances and market conditions.
  • The investments of the Sub-Fund may be periodically rebalanced and therefore the Sub-Fund may incur greater transaction costs than a Sub-Fund with static allocation strategy.

Risks associated with distribution out of capital

  • Payment of dividends out of capital or effectively out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of the amount the investors originally invested or from any capital gains attributable to the original investment. Any such distributions will result in an immediate reduction in the Net Asset Value of the relevant Class of Units.
  • The distribution amount and Net Asset Value of the hedged classes may be adversely affected by differences in the interest rates of the reference currency of the hedged classes and the Sub-Fund’s base currency, resulting in an increase in the amount of distribution that is paid out of capital and hence a greater erosion of capital than other non-hedged classes.

Risks relating to hedging and the hedged classes

  • There can be no assurance that any currency hedging strategy will fully and effectively eliminate the currency exposure of the Sub-Fund. Hedging strategies may preclude investors from benefiting from an increase in the value of the Sub-Fund’s base currency.

RMB currency risk/Risks relating to RMB denominated securities

  • Non-RMB based investors investing in the RMB Units will incur currency conversion costs and may suffer losses depending on the exchange rate movements of RMB relative to the investors’ base currencies (e.g. Hong Kong dollars) and by changes in exchange rate controls. There is no guarantee that RMB will not depreciate.
  • While the offshore RMB (known as “CNH”) and the onshore RMB (known as “CNY”) represent the same currency, they trade at different rates. Any divergence between CNH and CNY may adversely impact investors.
  • RMB is currently not a freely convertible currency and is subject to foreign exchange controls and repatriation restrictions. Under exceptional circumstances, payment of redemptions and/or dividend payment in RMB may be delayed due to the exchange controls and restrictions applicable to RMB.
