In addition, the BlueBay fund holdings may differ significantly from the securities that comprise the indices shown. Investors cannot invest directly in an index.Gross performance figures reflect the reinvestment of all dividends and earnings, but do not reflect the deduction of investment management and performance fees. An investor’s return will be reduced by the deduction of theapplicable fees, which will vary with the rate of return on the fund. For example, the compounding effect of a 0.60% management fee and a 0.20% performance fee would reduce annualised returns from 10% to 9.32% over a 5year period. In addition, the typical fees and expenses charged to a fund will offset the funds trading profits.
