Fund Investment Objective & Strategy
The Baring Asia Balanced Fund is aimed specifically, but not exclusively, at meeting the investment requirements of Hong Kong-based retirement schemes and its investment objective and policies have been tailored accordingly, namely, to achieve a long-term annualised rate of return of 2% per annum in excess of Hong Kong wage inflation when measured in Hong Kong dollar terms. In order to deliver against the desired objective, the Fund will hold a diversified portfolio of Asia, international equity markets and fixed income securities. Investment may also be made in cash and money market instruments where considered appropriate in light of market conditions.
Key Risks
Emerging market and liquidity risks:The Fund may invest in Asian equities and debt securities including companies in emerging markets.Investing in these markets may involve additional risks than investing in more developed markets These include liquidity risk (as described below), the possibility of a lower standard of corporate.governance, increased political risk and the likelihood of a high degree of volatility Market liquidity in the emerging markets may be lower than the more developed markets. Accumulation and disposal of securities or financial derivative instruments may be time consuming and may need to be conducted at unfavourable prices. The Fund may also encounter difficulties in disposing of .securities or financial derivative instruments at their fair market price. Risks of investment in equities: The equity markets may fluctuate significantly with prices rising or falling sharply, and this will have a direct impact on the Fund’s net asset value.

Risk of investment in fixed income securities Investment in fixed income securities is subject to interest rate and credit risks. Lower-rated securities will usually offer higher yields than higher-rated securities to compensate for the reduced.creditworthiness and increased risk of default that these securities carry The volume of transactions effected in certain international bond markets may be appreciably below that of the world’s largest markets, such as the United States. Accordingly, the Fund’s investment in such markets may be less liquid and their prices may be more volatile than comparable investments in securities trading in markets with larger trading volumes. Moreover, the settlement periods in.certain markets may be longer than in others which may affect portfolio liquidity. Interest rate risk: The fixed income securities in which the Fund invested are interest rate sensitive, which means that their value will fluctuate as interest rate fluctuate. An increase in interest rates will generally.reduce the value of the fixed income securities.

Counterparty risk: The Fund may have credit exposure to counterparties by virtue of positions in derivative instruments as well as certain other securities that may be held by the Fund. To the extent that a counterparty defaults on its obligation and the Fund is delayed or prevented from exercising its rights with ,respect to the investments in its portfolio, it may experience a decline in the value of its position.lose income and incur costs associated with asserting its rights The Fund may also be exposed to a credit risk on parties with whom it trades securities and.derivative instruments, and may also bear the risk of settlement default.
