- Post Global Limited Term High Yield Fund (the "Fund") invests primarily (i.e. at least 70% of its net asset value (“NAV”)) in a portfolio of global short-term, high yield corporate debt securities with an average duration of approximately 12-24 months. These securities will generally be rated below investment grade as rated by internationally recognised credit rating agencies e.g. Standard & Poor’s, Moody’s, and Fitch or are unrated.
- Investment involves risk. There is no assurance on investment returns and you may not get back the amount originally invested.
- The investment decision is yours but you should not invest in this Fund unless the intermediary who sells it to you has advised you that it is suitable for you and explained how it is consistent with your investment objectives.
- You should not invest solely in reliance on this website alone. You should read the Summary Prospectus and the Product Key Facts Statement of the Fund (particularly the risk factors) carefully before investing.
- In relation to D2 Class Income Plus Units of the Fund, the dividends which may be distributed by such class of units may be paid effectively out of the capital of the Fund (i.e. making the distribution from gross income while charging all or part of the Fund's fees and expenses to capital), resulting in an increase in distributable income for the payment of dividends by the Fund and an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit of the Fund. Payment of dividends effectively out of capital amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor's original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Dividend is not guaranteed.
Offer The Potential For Attractive Risk-Adjusted Returns
Compared with high yield and investment grade bonds, US limited term high yield bonds provide investors with the highest yield-to-duration ratio. Yield-to-duration ratio measures how much yield investors are receiving for every unit of duration risk they are accepting.
Deliver Consistent Positive Return Over The Full Cycle Especially When Risks Increase
Short duration bonds and loans provide positive returns in different economic cycles. US Limited Term High Yield bonds have smaller drawdowns relative to long duration high yield.
Outperform When Spreads Widen
The oil-price shock caused by the clash between Saudi Arabia and Russia has driven credit spreads significantly wider. US limited term high yield bonds are likely to outperform when volatility increases and credit spreads widen.
Enhance Risk / Return Profile
Adding limited term high yield bonds to a bond portfolio could help increase returns and reduce risks.
Limited term high yield bonds historically have had a low correlation to other fixed-income and equity products in various market conditions.
Advantage of a Smaller Maximum Drawdown
Shorter duration high yield is less sensitive to interest rate risk relative to longer duration high yield. It delivers returns with lower volatility and helps investors reach their long term goals while experiencing a smoother pattern of returns.
