Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investing involves risk, including possible loss of principal. Asset allocation and diversification do not ensure a profit or protect against a loss. There is no guarantee that investment objectives will be achieved or that any investment will be successful.
Fixed-income investment options are subject to interest rate risk, and their value will decline as interest rates rise. Investing in emerging markets has associated risks including currency risk, confiscatory taxation, nationalization of assets, possibility of expropriation, volatility, liquidity and external factors e.g. war, natural disasters. Derivatives are volatile and carry a high degree of risk, including liquidity risk. Leverage can magnify losses as well as gains. Investment in foreign currency can result in losses and values may fluctuate based on foreign exchange rates, exchange restrictions, or other actions of governments or central banks. International and global investing involves greater risks such as currency fluctuations, political/social instability, and differing accounting standards. Risk is magnified in emerging markets, which may lack established legal, political, business, or social structures to support securities markets. Emerging market debt may be subject to heightened default and liquidity risk.
Finisterre Unconstrained Emerging Market Fixed Income Strategy earned Debt Strategy of the Year ending June 30, 2020.

The first stage is purely the quantitative elements to derive leader boards from the entries. Leader boards informed and populated the shortlists for each category, who went through to the second stage of judging where a panel of independent and impartial judges from Institutional Investors and Consultants ensure firstly that the data is correct and use their knowledge and the qualitative elements of the entry process to decide on the winners by category. All data requested is through June 2020. Quantitative elements include: Each fund's performance is measured next to the most appropriate benchmark for the 1-, 3-, and 5-year periods ending June 30, 2020 and account for 20%, 10% and 10% of the overall score, respectively. Each fund's net AUM growth in real terms and % terms as well as the number of mandates won in over the 12-month period ending June 30, 2020 account for 10%, 10% and 10% of the overall score, respectively.
