The fund invests mainly in investment grade mortgage-backed securities or unrated mortgage-backed securities which the adviser determines to be of comparable quality.
  • J.P. Morgan – JEMB – EM Blended Indices – Blend different kinds of debt in the EM market while hedging the local-currency debt. JEMB combines government and corporate bonds with dollar-and euro-denominated debt and bonds issued in local currencies.

  • J.P. Morgan – JACI – Asia Credit Indices – Tracks total return performance of the Asia fixed-rate dollar bond market; this is a market cap-weighted index comprising sovereign, quasi-sovereign and corporate bonds, partitioned by country, sector and credit rating.

Morgan – MAGGIE – Morgan Aggregate Euro Indices – This index is a euro aggregate index that tracks the euro-denominated government bond, corporate and Pfandbriefe markets.  Eligible bonds are included in the Maggie on the basis of their traded liquidity to ensure that the index properly and fairly reflects the environment in which market professionals operate.
