INFORMATION FOR HONG KONG INVESTORS

Pictet Strategic Income (“The Fund”)

IMPORTANT NOTE

Pictet Strategic Income (the “Fund”) seeks to provide income and achieve long-term capital growth over the medium to longer term while also managing downside risk by investing primarily in a global diversified portfolio of equities and fixed income securities. 

The Fund’s investment in equity securities is subject to general market risks, whose value may fluctuate due to various factors, such as changes in investment sentiment, political and economic conditions and issuer-specific factors. 

Investors should note that investment in debt instruments are exposed to interest rate risk, liquidity risk, downgrading risk and credit risk of the issuer. In addition, the Fund may invest in below investment grade debt securities and unrated securities which may have higher volatility and risks of default and may be subject to greater risk of loss of principal and interest. 

The Fund may have significant exposure to emerging markets which are generally considered to present higher currency risks, political and economic risks, legal and taxation risks, settlement risks, custody risk. The Fund's investments may be more volatile and/or less liquid. 

The downside risk management process aims at managing losses of the Fund through the active allocation between higher risk assets and lower risk assets or through the use of FDIs to hedge market and/or currency risks, but it may not achieve the desired results under all circumstances and market conditions. It may also preclude the Fund from capturing significantly the upside in rising markets.

The Fund may use financial derivative instruments for hedging and investment purposes. Such investments may involve higher degree of counterparty/credit and liquidity risks and may result in higher degree of volatility and substantial loss.

The Fund may invest in China A shares which may subject the Fund to higher political, tax, foreign exchange, regulatory, valuation and liquidity risks. The Fund may suffer substantial losses if there is insufficient QFII/RQFII quota allocated for the Fund to make such investments.

The units of the Fund aim to pay dividend on monthly basis. Dividend is not guaranteed. Dividends payable (if any) from the units may be paid out of the capital. Investors should note that the payment of dividends out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of the amount they originally invested and/or any capital gains attributable to the original investment. Besides, investors should be aware that distributions, including distributions involving the payment of dividends out of the Fund’s capital, may result in an immediate reduction in the NAV per distribution share. The composition of dividends for the last 12 months will be provided on the website www.assetmangement.pictet (the website has not been reviewed by the SFC) or can be obtained from the Hong Kong Representative on request.

Investors should not only base on this marketing material alone to make investment decisions.

IMPORTANT NOTE 

 

Pictet (the “Fund”) as an umbrella under the UCITS regulations consists of different compartments investing in equities or debt securities, each with different risk profile. 

Some compartments may use financial derivative instruments extensively for investment purposes. Such investments may involve higher degree of credit/counterparty, market and liquidity risks and may result in higher degree of volatility and substantial loss. 

Compartments which invest in a single market, a single sector or a limited number of issuers and/or geographic zones should be regarded as having higher concentration risk than compartments following a more diversified policy.

Compartments which have investments concentrated in Europe may be more susceptible to fluctuations in value resulting from adverse conditions in the European region. 

Compartments which invest in emerging countries present greater political and economic risks, legal and regulatory risks, fiscal and tax risks and capital repatriation restrictions risk.
 
Compartments which hold a significant portion of illiquid assets may be exposed to risk arising from the difficulty of selling an asset at a favourable price.

Some Compartments may have high leveraged exposure and thus, may result in significant loss or total loss

Some Compartments may invest in RMB denominated bonds which may subject the Compartment to various risks of investing in Chinese market e.g. political, tax, foreign exchange, credit rating agency, regulatory, CIBM related, QFII and RQFII related and liquidity risks.

Compartments which mainly invest in bonds and other debt instruments are exposed to liquidity risk, interest rate risk, and credit risk of the issuer. They may also be impacted by a downgraded credit rating which may decrease the value and liquidity of the security and adversely affect the compartment's NAV.

Compartments which invest in below investment grade debt securities (including distress and defaulted securities) and unrated securities of similar credit quality may be subject to higher risks of default and greater levels of interest rate risk, credit risk, price volatility and liquidity risk.

Distribution shares aim to pay dividend on regular basis. Dividend is not guaranteed. Dividends payable (if any) from dy and/or dm distribution shares may be paid out of the capital. Investors should note that the payment of dividends out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of the amount they originally invested and/or any capital gains attributable to the original investment. Besides, investors should be aware that distributions, including distributions involving the payment of dividends out of the compartment’s capital, may result in an immediate reduction in the NAV per distribution share. The composition of dividends for the last 12 months will be provided on the website www.assetmangement.pictet (the website has not been reviewed by the SFC) or can be obtained from the Hong Kong Representative on request.
