               The	 Fund	 invests	 in	 Asian	 (excluding	 Japan)	 fixed-income	 securities	 denominated	 in	 US	 dollars	 and/or	
               major	currencies	and	local	Asia/Pacific	currencies	with	medium-	and	long-term	maturity.	Rather	than	a	
               generalised	top-down	asset-allocation	process,	we	use	a	differentiated	strategy	overlay	approach,	in	which	
               specific	 directional	 and	 micro	 strategies	 are	 implemented	 relative	 to	 the	 benchmark.	 These	 include	
               duration,	foreign	exchange,	country,	yield	curve	and	credit	spreads.	The	Fund	aims	to	achieve	the	highest	
               possible	return	in	US	dollars	measured	against	its	benchmark#.
