What does this Fund Invest In?

The Fund invests primarily in investment grade government and government related fixed income securities denominated in local and foreign currencies around the world.

Investor Suitability

The Fund is suitable for investors seeking income and global currency, country and yield diversification at a medium risk. 

Investment Strategy

The Fund is broadly diversified across many currencies, countries and yield curves. The research process is focused on identifying and managing risk. Similar to a Central Bank, an emphasis is placed on reserve currencies and countries because they tend to hold their store of value in periods of uncertainty. Within the desired currency and country, securities are selected and actively traded with a focus on positive real returns. The Fund’s currency positions are unhedged which can increase the resilience of a balanced portfolio through additional diversification.

* Funds with less than three years of performance history are not rated. The Mawer Global Bond Fund was launched May 28, 2015.

 Mawer Fund returns are calculated after management fees and operating expenses have been deducted. In comparison, index returns do not incur management fees or operating expenses.

 The Fund’s MER is made up of the management fee and operating expenses. The Fund’s annual management fee is 0.60% of the Fund’s value. Because this fund is new, its operating expenses are relatively large in comparison to the fund’s assets. The management of Mawer has committed to subsidize the operating expenses of the Fund from its inception so that the MER is no more than 0.75%. Management plans to review the subsidy periodically with the intent to remove the subsidy once the MER of the Fund has stabilized from asset growth at approximately 0.75%. After the subsidized period ends the actual MER for the Fund may be higher than 0.75%.
