Nomura Global Dynamic Bond Fund

The  Nomura Global Dynamic Bond Fund is a flexible, “go-anywhere” approach to fixed income investing. The Fund is unconstrained by benchmark allocations, enabling the ability to seek attractive total returns by investing across the full market spectrum.  The Fund has a target yield of 3-5% p.a., alongside the potential for capital growth.*

The tools available to the Fund include:

  • Government bonds
  • Corporate bonds
  • Mortgage backed securities
  • Inflation-linked bonds
  • Convertible bonds
  • Emerging market debt
  • Floating rate notes
  • Cash
  • Derivatives

Risk control is pivotal

Interest rate and credit risk are managed dynamically and the strategy is limited to a monthly value at risk of 5.75%**. The strategy is offered via a Dublin-based UCITS vehicle, launched in early 2015.

** Ex-ante monthly VaR, 99% confidence interval. This means that in 99% of outcomes, the Fund will experience a loss of no greater than 5.75% in a given month.

The Nomura Funds Ireland – Global Dynamic Bond Fund is a sub-fund of Nomura Funds Ireland plc. which is authorised and supervised by the Central Bank of Ireland as an open-ended umbrella investment company with variable capital.

The Fund may invest in Emerging Market or High Yield debt securities. Emerging markets debt securities tend to be more volatile than those of more developed capital markets and can carry a higher risk of default.  Therefore, any investment is at greater risk. High Yield securities also tend to experience higher levels of volatility and default than investment grade securities; again, therefore, any investment is at greater risk. The strategy may invest in derivatives including (but not limited to futures, forwards, options, swaps and swaptions). Some of these securities are exchange traded, others are not. Derivatives traded on an exchange are guaranteed by the exchange. Derivatives that are not exchange traded carry risk of default by the counterparty. In almost all cases (other than long positions in options), the derivatives used may result in losses greater than the amount of the original investment. Investors in the Nomura Global Dynamic Bond Fund cannot experience losses greater than the amount invested.
