The investment focus and approach of the Nikko AM Multi Sector Credit Fund is to adopt an active strategic and tactical asset allocation process to credit-related debt securities globally. Through this asset allocation process, the Fund will gain exposure to actively selected debt securities based on both fundamental and quantitative research. The strategic asset-allocation process applies a risk-balanced approach to each of the credit sectors with the tactical overlay allowing the Fund to shift these allocations to exploit investment opportunities of different market environments.
The Fund will invest in credit-related debt securities such as emerging market debt, high-yield debt and investment-grade corporate debt. The Fund may also invest in other assets such as convertible bonds, asset-backed securities, mortgage-backed securities, debt securities of governments and their agencies and cash and cash equivalents. Depending on the market environment, the Fund has the flexibility to allocate tactically to any other credit sector not mentioned above.
