Fund Investment Objective & Strategy
The Fund seeks to provide total returns comprised of interest income and capital growth by investing principally in RMB denominated fixed or floating income instruments. It invests primarily (i.e. 70% to 100% of NAV) in RMB denominated instruments including fixed income instruments, asset backed securities (subject to a limit of 30% of NAV), convertible bonds, commercial papers and short term bills and notes (“Income Instruments”). The RMB-denominated Income Instruments may be issued by government, quasi-government organizations, financial institutions, multinational organizations, mainland local government financing vehicles and other corporation.
Key Risks
Investment 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. Risks associated with debt securities: Credit / Counterparty risk: The Sub-Fund is exposed to the credit and default risk of issuers of the debt securities that the Sub-Fund may invest in. Interest rate risk: Investment in the Sub-Fund is subject to interest rate risk. In general, the prices of debt securities rise when interest rates fall, whilst their prices fall when interest rates rise. Volatility and liquidity risk: The debt securities in the market in mainland China may be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity compared to more developed markets. The prices 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: The credit rating of a debt instrument or its issuer may subsequently be downgraded. In the event of such 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 that are being downgraded. Sovereign debt risk: The Sub-Fund’s investment in securities issued or guaranteed by governments 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. Risks associated with collateralised and/or securitised products: The Sub-Fund invests in asset-based securities which may be highly illiquid and prone to substantial price volatility. These instruments may be subject to greater credit, liquidity and interest rate risk compared to other debt securities. They are often exposed to extension and prepayment risks and risks that the payment obligations relating to the underlying assets are not met, which may adversely impact the returns of the securities. 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 NAV calculation of the SubFund. Credit rating risk: Credit ratings assigned by rating agencies are subject to limitations and do not guarantee the creditworthiness of the security and/or issuer at all times. Credit rating agency risk: The credit appraisal system in mainland China and the rating methodologies employed in mainland China may be different from those employed in other markets. Credit ratings given by mainland China rating agencies may therefore not be directly comparable with those given by other international rating agencies. Convertible bonds risk: 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 urban investment bonds: Urban investment bonds are issued by LGFVs, such bonds are typically not guaranteed by local governments or the central government of mainland China. In the event that the LGFVs default on payment of principal or interest of the urban investment bonds, the SubFund could suffer substantial loss and the NAV of the Sub-Fund could be adversely affected. 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 NAV 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 liberalisation of the offshore RMB (CNH) market by the relevant regulator(s). Risks relating to debt instruments that are rated below investment grade or unrated: The Sub-Fund may invest in debt securities rated below investment 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. Risks associated with Bond Connect: Investing in the China interbank bond market via Bond Connect is subject to regulatory risks and various risks such as volatility risk, liquidity risk, settlement and counterparty risk as well as other risk factors typically applicable to debt securities. The relevant rules and regulations on investment in the China interbank bond market via Bond Connect are subject to change which may have potential retrospective effect. In the event that the relevant mainland Chinese authorities suspend account opening or trading on the China interbank bond market, the Sub-Fund’s ability to invest in the China interbank bond market will be adversely affected. In such event, the Sub-Fund’s ability to achieve its investment objective will be negatively affected. Concentration risk: The Sub-Fund’s investments are concentrated in RMB Income Instruments and in China. The value of the Sub-Fund may be more volatile than that of a fund having a more diverse portfolio of investments. The value of the Sub-Fund may be more susceptible to adverse economic, political, policy, foreign exchange, liquidity, tax, legal or regulatory event affecting the Chinese markets. Risk associated with investments in LAPs: Debt instruments with loss-absorption features are subject to greater risks when compared to traditional debt instruments as such instruments are typically subject to the risk of being written down or converted to ordinary shares upon the occurrence of certain pre-defined trigger events (e.g. when the issuer is near or at the point of non-viability or when the issuer’s capital ratio falls to a specified level), which are likely to be outside of the issuer’s control. Such trigger events are complex and difficult to predict and may result in a significant or total reduction in the value of such instruments. In the event of the activation of a trigger, there may be potential price contagion and volatility to the entire asset class. Debt instruments with loss-absorption features may also be exposed to liquidity, valuation and sector concentration risk. The Sub-Fund may invest in contingent convertible debt instruments, which are highly complex and are of high risk. Upon the occurrence of the trigger event, contingent convertible debt instruments may be converted into shares of the issuer (potentially at a discounted price), or may be subject to the permanent write-down to zero. Coupon payments on contingent convertible debt instruments are discretionary and may be cancelled by the issuer at any point, for any reason, and for any length of time. Emerging market risk: The Sub-Fund invests in emerging markets which may involve increased risks and special considerations not typically associated with investment in more developed markets, such as liquidity risks, currency risks or control, political and economic uncertainties, legal and taxation risks, settlement risks, custody risk and the likelihood of a high degree of volatility. Risks associated with investments in FDIs: Risks associated with FDI include counterparty/credit risk, liquidity risk, valuation risk, volatility risk and over-the-counter transaction risk. The leverage element and component of an FDI can result in a loss significantly greater than the amount invested in the FDI by the Sub-Fund. Exposure to FDI may lead to a high risk of significant loss by the Sub-Fund. Risks associated with distribution out of the Sub-Fund’s capital: Payment of dividends out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investments. Any such distributions may result in an immediate reduction of the NAV per Unit. PRC tax risk: There are risks and uncertainties associated with the current PRC tax laws, regulations and practice in respect of capital gains realised by a foreign investor on its investments in the PRC (which may have retrospective effect). Any increased tax liabilities on the Sub-Fund may adversely affect the Sub-Fund’s value. Having considered independent professional tax advice and in accordance with such advice, the Manager decided that no withholding tax provision will be made on the gross unrealised and realised capital gains and interest income derived from investments in the PRC.” Any tax provision made by the Manager in respect of the Sub-Fund may be more than or less than the Sub-Fund’s actual tax liabilities, which may potentially cause substantial loss to the Sub-Fund. Investors may be disadvantaged as a result of any shortfall of tax provision and will not have the right to claim any part of overprovision. RMB currency and conversion risks: RMB is currently not freely convertible and is subject to exchange controls and restrictions. Non-RMB based investors are exposed to foreign exchange risk and there is no guarantee that the value of RMB against the investors’ base currencies (for example HKD) will not depreciate. Any depreciation of RMB could adversely affect the value of investor’s investment in the Sub-Fund. Although offshore RMB (CNH) and onshore RMB (CNY) are the same currency, they trade at different rates. Any divergence between CNH and CNY may adversely impact investors. 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. Currency risks: Underlying investments of the Sub-Fund may be denominated in currencies other than its base currency. Also, a class of shares may be designated in a currency other than the base currency of the Sub-Fund. The NAV of the Sub-Fund may be affected unfavorably by fluctuations in the exchange rates between these currencies and the base currency and by changes in exchange rate controls. Risk associated with limited pool of investments: The quantity of RMB-denominated Income Instruments issued or distributed outside mainland China is currently limited. Should the availability of offshore RMB-denominated Income Instruments become scarce, the Sub-Fund may hold a significant portion of assets in Income Instruments traded on the onshore interbank bond market in mainland China via Bond Connect or in bank deposits.
