The BlueBay Investment Grade Absolute Return Bond Fund is designed to invest in predominantly global investment grade corporate and sovereign issues, derivatives, rates and currencies, combined with environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria.
The BlueBay Investment Grade Absolute Return Bond Fund (the Fund) is actively managed and its objective is to achieve a total return in excess of the ICE BofA Merill Lynch Euro Currency 3-Month Deposit Offered Rate Constant Maturity index. There are no restrictions on the extent to which the Fund's portfolio and performance may deviate from the ones of the benchmark.
The Fund’s benchmark (ICE BoFA Merrill Lynch Euro Currency 3-Month Deposit Offered Rate Constant Maturity index) does not implement any of the ESG specific considerations which apply to the fund and is therefore used for performance comparison only.
