          1. The Fund invests in inflation linked bonds whose coupon payments will increase and decrease with changes in official inflation rates. Investors should be aware that inflation
             linked bonds may offer a slightly lower coupon payment compared to other types of fixed interest securities as they are not exposed to inflation rate risk. The Fund may invest in
             structured credit products such as asset backed securities (‘ABS’). These securities have similar characteristics to corporate bonds but carry greater risk. These securities can
             be more sensitive to economic events, may be subject to severe price movements and can be more difficult and/or more expensive to sell in difficult markets. The Fund invests
             a large portion of assets which are denominated in other currencies; hence changes in the relevant exchange rate will affect the value of the investment.
          2. The value of a Fund can be volatile and could go down substantially within a short period of time. It is possible that the certain amount of your investment could be lost.
          3. Investors should not only base on this marketing material alone to make investment decisions.
