OLD MUTUAL LOCAL CURRENCY EMERGING MARKET DEBT FUND
The objective of the Old Mutual Local Currency Emerging Market Debt Fund is to seek to achieve asset growth through investment in a welldiversified portfolio of fixed and variable rate debt securities issued in emerging markets
REASONS TO RECOMMEND
STRONG ACTIVE MANAGEMENT
The portfolio uses active management, based on robust quantitative analysis, to take advantage of market inefficiencies in both rates and currencies.
BROAD UNIVERSE WITH DIVERSIFICATION
The fund selects diverse sources of return from the expanding asset class of sovereign debt across Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Latin America. No countries are out of reach.
QUANT AND FUNDAMENTALS
The fund uses quantitative models to forecast market direction and combines this with fundamental analysis to identify the most attractive opportunities.
The fund is able to access markets early, uses a nimble approach, and dynamically adjusts positioning.

WHAT YOUR CLIENTS CAN EXPECT
The aim is to give investors access to a diversified portfolio representing managers’ views that takes advantage of opportunities primarily in local rates and currencies. The fund will also opportunistically invest in US dollar-denominated sovereign and quasi-sovereign bonds in emerging markets when attractive valuations arise. The fund is managed having regard to the JP Morgan GBI-EM Global Diversified Index, but does not track the index.
