Schroder ISF* EURO Corporate BondOur investment objective: to achieve above-average performance in all market conditions.
The Schroder ISF EURO Corporate Bond invests primarily in euro-denominated bonds issued by companies from all over the world. The focus is on investment-grade securities from European issuers with good or very good borrower quality. This fund is suitable as a central core investment for long-term asset accumulation.
The fund takes a flexible approach to achieving risk-adjusted outperformance relative to the benchmark over the entire economic cycle, actively seizing opportunities and limiting risks in a targeted manner. For example, management can add high-yield bonds to boost returns. It may also invest in foreign currency bonds on a limited basis in order to hedge currency risks. Because the fund uses an active approach, management can hold parts of the fund's assets in cash or in high-quality government bonds during challenging periods of high volatility.

Currency risk: The fund may suffer losses in value as a result of changes in exchange rates.
Derivatives risk: Derivatives can be used to efficiently manage the portfolio. The fund may also invest significantly in derivatives, as well as use short selling and leverage techniques to generate a return. A derivative might not perform as expected, resulting in losses greater than the cost of the derivative. This may result in losses for the fund too.
Interest rate risk: The fund may suffer losses in value as a direct result of changes in interest rates.
IBOR: The move by financial markets away from the use of interbank offered rates (IBOR) towards alternative benchmark interest rates may affect the valuation of certain holdings and disrupt the liquidity of certain instruments. This can affect the fund's investment performance.
Performance risk: The investment objectives indicate the intended objective. However, there can be no guarantee that this objective will be achieved. Depending on market conditions and the macroeconomic environment, it may become more difficult to achieve investment objectives.
High-yield bond risk: High-yield bonds (usually with a lower or no credit rating) are generally exposed to greater market, credit and liquidity risks.
ABS and MBS risks: The fund may invest in mortgage and asset-backed securities. The borrowers underlying these securities may not be able to repay the amount they owe in full, resulting in losses for the fund.
CoCo bonds: The fund can invest in CoCo bonds. A reduction in the financial strength of the issuer of such bonds may result in losses for the fund.
Credit risk: A deterioration in an issuer's financial condition can cause its bonds to lose value or become worthless.
Liquidity risk: In difficult market conditions, the fund may not be able to sell a security at its full value or at all. This could have an impact on performance and cause the fund to postpone or suspend redemptions of shares.
Operational risk: Operational processes, including those relating to the custody of the assets, may fail, resulting in losses for the fund.
Sustainability risks: The fund has environmental and/or social characteristics. This means that it may have limited exposure to some companies, industries or sectors and may not take advantage of certain investment opportunities or sell certain positions if they do not meet the sustainability criteria selected by the investment manager. The fund may invest in companies that do not reflect the beliefs and values of a particular investor.
Capital risk/distribution policy: Since the fund intends to pay dividends regardless of its performance, a dividend may be equivalent to a repayment of a portion of your invested amount.
