Fund Description

Principal Investment Strategies
Under normal circumstances, the Fund invests at least 80% of its net assets (plus the amount of any borrowings for investment purposes) in income-producing floating rate debt securities, consisting of floating rate loans, bonds, and notes, issued primarily by North American and Western European companies. For this purpose, debt instruments issued by issuers based in the Channel Islands, Cayman Islands, and Bermuda are considered North American and Western European companies. Such instruments are primarily, at the time of purchase, rated below investment grade (“junk” or “high yield”) by at least one credit rating agency (below Baa3 by Moody’s Investors Service, Inc. or below BBB- by either S&P Global Ratings, a subsidiary of S&P Global, or Fitch Ratings, Inc.) or, if unrated, determined to be of comparable quality by the Fund’s subadviser, Barings LLC (“Barings”), or sub-subadviser, Baring International Investment Limited (“BIIL”).
The Fund may invest in a wide range of incomeproducing floating rate loans, bonds, and notes of issuers based in U.S. and non-U.S. markets, but primarily invests in senior secured loans of North American and Western European corporate issuers that are of below investment grade quality. Under normal market conditions, the Fund allocates its assets among various regions and countries (but in no less than three different countries) and invests at least 40% of its net assets in securities of non-U.S. issuers (or, if less, at least the percentage of net assets that is 5 percentage points less than the percentage of the market-capitalization weighted average of the Credit Suisse Leveraged Loan Index and the Credit Suisse Western European Leveraged Loan Index, represented by non-U.S. issuers). A significant portion of the Fund’s investments in floating rate debt securities is denominated in a currency other than the U.S. dollar. Although the Fund’s investments in non-U.S. dollar denominated assets may be on a currency hedged or unhedged basis, under normal market conditions, the Fund seeks to hedge substantially all of its exposure to non-U.S. currencies. The Fund may at times have significant exposure to one or more industries or sectors.
The Fund seeks to take advantage of inefficiencies between geographies, primarily the North American and Western European loan and other debt markets. For example, the Fund seeks to take advantage of differences in pricing between senior secured loans of an issuer denominated in U.S. dollars and substantially similar senior secured loans of the same issuer denominated in Euros, potentially allowing the Fund to achieve a higher relative return for the same credit risk exposure.
The Fund invests primarily in senior secured loans (consisting of assignments and participations). By purchasing a participation, the Fund acquires some or all of the interest of a bank or other lending institution in a loan to a borrower. Participations typically will result in the Fund having a contractual relationship only with the lender and not the borrower. When the Fund purchases assignments from lenders, the Fund will acquire direct rights against the borrower on the loan. The Fund may invest in both floating rate debt instruments and debt instruments that pay a fixed rate of interest; listed and unlisted corporate debt obligations; convertible securities; structured products (consisting of collateralized bond and loan obligations); bank obligations; U.S. government securities; preferred securities and trust preferred securities; unsecured loans; delayed funding loans and revolving credit facilities; when-issued securities, delayed delivery purchases, and forward commitments; zero-coupon bonds, step-up bonds, and payment-in-kind securities; commercial paper; repurchase agreements; and other investment companies. The instruments in which the Fund invests are primarily below investment grade quality, and may include investments in the lowest rating category of the applicable rating agency. The Fund may invest in distressed loans and bonds that are in default at the time of purchase in an effort to protect the Fund’s existing investments in securities of the same issuers. The Fund also may invest in equity securities (consisting of common and preferred stocks, warrants and rights, and limited partnership interests), but invests in such equity investments only for the preservation of capital. The Fund may also use over-the-counter and exchange-traded derivatives for hedging purposes or speculative purposes—as substitutes for investments in securities in which the Fund can invest—provided that, at the time the Fund enters into a derivative transaction, the Fund segregates assets determined to be liquid by Barings or BIIL in accordance with procedures established by the Fund’s Board
of Trustees, in an amount at least equal to any payment or delivery obligation of the Fund in connection with such derivative transaction. The Fund’s use of derivatives may consist primarily of total return swaps, options, index swaps or swaps on components of an index, interest rate swaps, credit default swaps, and foreign currency forward contracts and futures. The Fund may hold a portion of its assets in cash or cash equivalents.
The Fund may invest in investments of any duration or maturity.
The Fund may borrow up to one-third of its assets (including the amount borrowed) to fund redemptions, post collateral for hedges, or to purchase loans, bonds, or structured products prior to settlement of pending sale transactions.
Securities may be sold when Barings or BIIL believes they no longer represent relatively attractive investment opportunities.
