Important Risk Disclosure
  • PineBridge India Equity Fund (the “Fund”) invests primarily in equity and equity-related securities of companies listed on stock exchanges in India or closely related to the economic development and growth of India, and may be exposed to additional risks (e.g. equity, emerging markets, market volatility, country concentration and Indian exchange control risks, and risk associated with Indian taxation for investments made through a Mauritian subsidiary, etc.).
  • The Fund may use financial derivative instruments (“FDI”) for hedging purposes only but will not use FDI extensively for any purposes. The use of FDI may expose the Fund to various risks such as counterparty, liquidity, correlation, credit, volatility, valuation and settlement risks.
  • Dividends, if any, may be paid out of capital of the Fund at the discretion of the Manager. This amounts to a return or withdrawal of part of an investor’s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment and may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value of the Fund.
  • Investors may be subject to substantial losses due to investment loss risk and the leveraging effect of using FDI.
  • Investors should not rely solely on this material to make investment decisions.

PineBridge India Equity Fund (the “Fund”) is a sub-fund of PineBridge Global Funds, an Irish domiciled UCITS umbrella fund, authorized and regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland. PineBridge Investments is a group of international companies that provide investment advice and market asset management products and services to clients around the world. PineBridge Investments is a registered trademark proprietary to PineBridge Investments IP Holding Company Limited.

Important Benchmark Information
The Sub-Fund is actively managed, seeking to deliver excess returns over the Sub-Fund’s benchmark. The holdings may or may not be components of the benchmark and the Investment Manager has broad discretion to deviate from the benchmark securities, weightings and risk characteristics. The degree to which the Sub-Fund resembles the composition and risk characteristics of the benchmark is not a specifically targeted outcome and could vary over time, and the Sub-Fund’s performance may be meaningfully different from the Sub-Fund’s benchmark.

Key Risks
Potential Investors should consider the following key risks before investing in the Sub-Fund:

Equity Investing Risk: The value of shares and securities related to shares may fall due to issuer related issues, financial market dynamics and world events including economic and political changes.

Concentration Risk: The Sub-Fund may invest in a limited number of securities compared to more diversified Sub-Funds or it may focus its investments and hold relatively large positions in, among other things, particular industries, countries, sectors, currencies or issuers. This may increase the volatility of the value of the Sub-Fund or for the Sub-Fund to bear losses and may also limit the liquidity of certain securities within the Sub-Fund.

Derivative Risk: A Sub-Fund may use derivative instruments for both efficient portfolio management and for investment purposes. Derivative transactions may be subject to significant volatility which may result in a loss greater than the principal amount invested.

Counterparty Risk: A Sub-Fund may have credit exposure (by virtue of position in swaps, repurchase agreements, FDI etc.) to its trading parties and may bear the risk of default of the counterparties.

Operational Risk: A Sub-Fund may risk loss resulting from process failures, inadequate procedures or controls.
Liquidity Risk: The risk that the Sub-Fund may invest some of their assets in illiquid securities and other illiquid financial instruments, in respect of which they may not always be possible to execute a buy or sell order at the desired price or to liquidate the open position.

Currency Risk - Base Currency: Securities may be denominated in currencies different from the Sub-Fund's Base Currency and there is a risk that changes in exchange rates and exchange control regulations may cause the value of the assets expressed in the Base Currency to rise or fall.
Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging markets are typically smaller, less transparent, and subject to evolving, less stable political and regulatory regimes and securities from these markets may be more expensive to transact in, bear higher risk or have lower liquidity.

Emerging Markets Risk: Emerging markets are typically smaller, less transparent, and subject to evolving, less stable political and regulatory regimes and securities from these markets may be more expensive to transact in, bear higher risk or have lower liquidity.

Counterparty Risk – Depositary and Sub-Custodians: Custody services in many emerging markets remain undeveloped and there is a transaction and custody risk of dealing in emerging market investments.

Liquidity Risk: The risk that the Sub-Fund may invest some of their assets in illiquid securities and other illiquid financial instruments, in respect of which they may not always be possible to execute a buy or sell order at the desired price or to liquidate the open position.

The risk factors described above should not be considered an exhaustive list of risks, which potential investors should consider before investing in the Sub-Fund. For more details on the fund’s potential risks please read the Prospectus and Key Investor Information Document at pinebridge.com/funds
