“This fund's flexibility allows me to take advantage of the prevailing economic conditions and global trends to try to generate the best possible returns for investors.”
The M&G (Lux) Global Macro Bond Fund is a ﬂexible bond fund whose long-term performance is driven by the active management of its duration, credit risk and currency positioning. Fund Manager Jim Leaviss has the freedom to invest in any region in the world and across the full range of global ﬁxed income securities, including government bonds, investment grade corporate bonds, and high yield and emerging market issues.
The fund’s top-down investment approach is based on the fund manager’s macroeconomic views on growth, inﬂation and interest rates, which is then followed by asset allocation based on a bottom-up approach with assistance from M&G’s extensive team of credit analysts.
Jim Leaviss and his team always look to construct a diversiﬁed portfolio with at least four to six uncorrelated themes across bond and currency markets. Recent examples of such themes include:

This is a marketing communication. Please refer to the prospectus and to the KIID before making any final investment decision.
The value and income from the fund's assets will go down as well as up. This will cause the value of your investment to fall as well as rise. There is no guarantee that the fund will achieve its objective and you may get back less than you originally invested.
Investments in bonds are aﬀected by interest rates, inﬂation and credit ratings. It is possible that bond issuers will not pay interest or return the capital. All of these events can reduce the value of bonds held by the fund. High yield bonds usually carry greater risk that the bond issuers may not be able to pay interest or return the capital.
The fund can be exposed to diﬀerent currencies. Movements in currency exchange rates may adversely aﬀect the value of your investment.
Investing in emerging markets involves a greater risk of loss due to greater political, tax, economic, foreign exchange, liquidity and regulatory risks, among other factors. There may be diﬃculties in buying, selling, safekeeping or valuing investments in such countries.
Further details of the risks that apply to the fund can be found in the fund's Prospectus.
The fund allows for the extensive use of derivatives.
The fund may invest more than 35% in securities issued by any one or more of the governments listed in the fund prospectus. Such exposure may be combined with the use of derivatives in pursuit of the fund objective. It is currently envisaged that the fund’s exposure to such securities may exceed 35% in the governments of Germany, Japan, UK, USA although these may vary subject only to those listed in the prospectus.
Investing in this fund means acquiring units or shares in a fund, and not in a given underlying asset such as a building or shares of a company, as these are only the underlying assets owned by the fund.
