The investment seeks total return in excess of that of its benchmark, the J.P. Morgan EMBI Global. The fund invests primarily in debt of emerging countries that is issued by a sovereign or its instrumentalities outside the country of the issuer and usually is denominated in the currency of the country in which it is issued (e.g., U.S. dollar, Euro, Japanese yen, Swiss franc and British pound sterling). Under normal circumstances, the fund invests directly and indirectly (e.g., through other GMO Funds or derivatives) at least 80% of its assets in debt investments tied economically to emerging countries. It is non-diversified.
