Further, investors should note that for share classes A (mth) – SGD, A (mth) – SGD (Hedged), A (irc) – AUD (Hedged), A (mth) – USD and A (dist) – USD, dividends may in certain circumstances be paid out of the share class capital and reduce the net asset value of that share class.
Returns to investors will vary from year to year, depending on dividend income and capital returns generated by the underlying financial assets. Capital returns may be negative in some years and dividends are not guaranteed. The value of equity securities may go down as well as up in response to the performance of individual companies and general market conditions. The value of debt securities may change significantly depending on economic and interest rate conditions as well as the credit worthiness of the issuer. Emerging markets may be subject to increased political, regulatory and economic instability, less developed custody and settlement practices, poor transparency and greater financial risks. Emerging market currencies may be subject to volatile price movements. Emerging market and below investment grade debt securities may also be subject to higher volatility and lower liquidity than non emerging market and investment grade debt securities respectively. The fund may be concentrated in industry sectors and/or countries and as a result, may be more volatile than more broadly diversified funds.
Issuers of debt securities may fail to meet payment obligations or the credit rating of debt securities may be downgraded. These risks are typically increased for emerging market and below investment grade debt securities.

In addition, the net asset value of the AUD and USD denominated Share Classes are not denominated in SGD.
