3 Investment Theme U.S. Rate Hike in June, Asian Corporate Bonds Stay Relatively Defensive U.S. raised rate by 25 basis points in June, the federal funds target rate increased to 1% 1.25%. We expect the pace of U.S. rate hikes to be moderate. One more rate hike in the second half of the year is possible, and the U.S. Federal Reserve (Fed) may also begin to normalise its balance sheet. The Fed s balance sheet actions will be more of a consideration in the fourth quarter or next year it may create upward pressure on the interest rate in the short term, and we expect corporate bonds with a credit spread cushion will be a good defensive tool. U.S. treasury yields traded lower due to a range of global uncertainties have emerged recently, including concern about Trump s ability to implement reforms, terrorist attacks in England, and geopolitical tensions in Korea. We have a positive outlook on the Asian bond market in the long term, given the signs of economic stabilisation, continuous capital inflows into Asian bond market in search of higher yield. China High Yield Bonds Continue to Attract Interest from Chinese Investors Chinese high yield bond market remains resilient, especially the low beta names, due to healthy demand from Chinese investors during a generally weaker risk appetite. Chinese property issuers have been gaining market share and maintaining profit stability with strong cash flows. Meanwhile, Chinese issuers in retail sector are benefitting from a recovery in same-store sales and increased exposure to the catering business; at the same time, they also have better asset coverage ratios. Asian high yield corporate bonds widened substantially due to the potential restructuring risk of an Asian commodity issuer, creating negative sentiment throughout the market. We are cautious on the commodity sector, as commodity prices are still trending down. Macro economic The overall macro environment remains benign, inflation expectations are likely to come down further, we think the overall macro backdrop remains favourable to financial assets especially equities. From an absolute return standpoint, Asian and emerging credits continue to do well on attractive yields and currency strength. Outlook and Strategy on Income Funds 2

4 BEA Union Investment Asian Bond and Currency Fund ( ABC ) as at 31 May BEA Union Investment Asian Bond and Currency Fund seeks regular interest income, capital gains and currency appreciation from an actively managed portfolio of debt securities denominated in Asian or other currencies and primarily issued by Asian government or corporate entities. The fund invests in emerging markets, which are subject to higher liquidity and volatility risks. The fund may invest in lower-rated fixed income instruments, including below investment grade and non-rated debt securities, which are subject to greater credit and liquidity risks than higher-rated securities. The manager may at its discretion make distributions from income and/or capital in respect of the distributing classes of the Fund. Investors should note that the distributions paid out of capital amount to a return or withdrawal of part of the unitholder s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Such distribution may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit. In terms of currency hedged class units, adverse exchange rate fluctuations between the base currency of the fund and the class currency of the currency hedged class units may result in a decrease in return and/or loss of capital for unitholders. Over-hedged or under-hedged positions may arise and there can be no assurance that these currency hedged class units will be hedged at all times or that the manager will be successful in employing the hedge. Investors may invest in RMB (Hedged) units. It should be noted that the RMB is currently not a freely convertible currency as it is subject to foreign exchange control policies of the Chinese government. There is also no assurance that the RMB will not be subject to devaluation. Any devaluation of the RMB could adversely affect the value of investors investments. There is no guarantee that the hedging strategy will be effective and investors may still be subject to the RMB currency exchange risk. The fund may enter into futures contracts and currency forward contracts for hedging and investment purposes. Given the leverage effect embedded in futures and currency forward contracts, the fund may be exposed to significant losses. Investors should not make an investment decision based solely on this material.

Portfolio Recap & Strategy Market Review The fund scaled down its high yield risk by reducing holdings in names with weaker credit profiles, especially in the commodities sector, after market sentiment fell due to credit events. The fund remained positive on defensive high yield bonds in property and retail sectors. The fund added positions with attractive carry in the CNH bond market and eased its expectation on the scale of the currency s depreciation. The fund also selectively added other Asian currencies in view of decent fund inflows into the Asian region.

Market Commentary Despite a year-to-date rally in the high yield sector, we are still positive on this asset class in the longer term given the continuous capital inflows into the Asian market in search of higher yields, as well as stronger economic growth, manageable inflation rates, and limited new supply in the near future. The strengthening U.S. economy had led Federal Reserve members to adopt a more hawkish stance, and it is increasingly likely that the central bank will substantially reduce its balance sheet this year, which may increase short-term volatility for Asian bonds and currencies. Despite the uncertainties, the Asian bond market will continue to gain from net fund inflows and a relatively stable economic and political environment. 1. Source: Morningstar. All Rights Reserved.

5 BEA Union Investment Asia Pacific Multi Income Fund ( APM ) as at 31 May BEA Union Investment Asia Pacific Multi Income Fund seeks to achieve income and long-term capital growth by investing in an actively managed portfolio of debt securities, listed REITs, and other listed securities in the Asia Pacific region. The fund invests in emerging markets and may be subject to higher liquidity and volatility risks. The fund invests directly in listed REITs, equities and managed funds, and is thus subject to the risks generally associated with such asset classes, including but not limited to liquidity of the asset class, changes in investment sentiment, political environment, economic, business and social conditions in local and global marketplace. The fund may invest in lower-rated fixed income instruments, including below investment grade and non-rated debt securities, which are subject to greater credit and liquidity risks than higher-rated securities. The manager may at its discretion make distributions from income and/or capital in respect of the distributing classes of the fund. Investors should note that the distributions paid out of capital amount to a return or withdrawal of part of the unitholder s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Such distribution may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit. In terms of currency hedged class units, adverse exchange rate fluctuations between the base currency of the fund and the class currency of the currency hedged class units may result in a decrease in return and/or loss of capital for unitholders. Over-hedged or under-hedged positions may arise and there can be no assurance that these currency hedged class units will be hedged at all times or that the manager will be successful in employing the hedge. Investors may invest in RMB (Hedged) units. It should be noted that the RMB is currently not a freely convertible currency as it is subject to foreign exchange control policies of the Chinese government. There is also no assurance that the RMB will not be subject to devaluation. Any devaluation of the RMB could adversely affect the value of investors investments. There is no guarantee that the hedging strategy will be effective and investors may still be subject to the RMB currency exchange risk. The fund may enter into futures contracts for hedging and investment purposes. Given the leverage effect embedded in futures contracts, the fund may be exposed to significant losses.

Portfolio Recap & Strategy The fund scaled down its high yield risk by reducing holdings in names with weaker credit profiles, especially in the commodities sector, after market sentiment fell due to credit events. The fund remained positive on defensive high yield bonds in property and retail sectors. In terms of equity, the fund withdrew its investment in the materials in anticipation of further commodity price weakness. The fund also withdrew its investment in an Australian bank due to a weaker economic outlook and concerns about the local housing market. Using this capital, the fund took advantage of favourable prices to add to certain positions in gambling, telecoms, banking, and industrials.

6 BEA Union Investment Asian Strategic Bond Fund ( ASB ) as at 31 May 2016 BEA Union Investment Asian Strategic Bond Fund seeks medium to long term capital growth and regular income by primarily (i.e. at least 70% of its non-cash assets) investing in debt securities that are (a) denominated in Asian currencies, or (b) issued or guaranteed by Asian governments or entities incorporated in Asia or have significant operations or assets in, or derive significant portion of revenue or profits from Asia, and denominated in USD or other currencies including Asian currencies. The fund invests in emerging markets and may be subject to higher liquidity and volatility risks. The fund may invest in below investment grade or non-rated debt securities, which are subject to greater credit and liquidity risks than higher-rated securities. The manager may at its discretion make distributions from income and/or capital in respect of the distributing classes of the fund. Investors should note that the distributions paid out of capital amount to a return or withdrawal of part of the unitholder s original investment or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Such distribution may result in an immediate reduction of the net asset value per unit. In terms of currency hedged class units, adverse exchange rate fluctuations between the base currency of the fund and the class currency of the currency hedged class units may result in a decrease in return and/or loss of capital for unitholders. Over-hedged or under-hedged positions may arise and there can be no assurance that these currency hedged class units will be hedged at all times or that the manager will be successful in employing the hedge. RMB is currently not freely convertible and is subject to foreign exchange control policies of the Chinese government. Non-RMB based (e.g. Hong Kong) investors are exposed to foreign exchange risk and there is no guarantee that the value of RMB against the investors base currencies (for example HKD) will not depreciate. Any depreciation of RMB would adversely affect the value of investor s investment in the Fund. The fund may use derivative instruments for hedging purposes which may not achieve the intended purpose and may result in significant losses. Investors should not make an investment decision based solely on this material.

The fund remained positive on defensive high yield bonds in property and retail sectors. The fund lengthened its portfolio duration in the second half of the month as headlines about Donald Trump depressed U.S. Treasury yields.

Market Commentary The strengthening U.S. economy had led Federal Reserve members to adopt a more hawkish stance, and it is increasingly likely that the central bank will substantially reduce its balance sheet this year, which may increase short-term volatility for Asian bonds and currencies. Investors may turn cautious as a result of political headlines from the U.S. and E.U. countries as well as unexpected terrorist attacks, all of which will have a generally negative impact on the global bond markets. Despite these uncertainties, the Asian bond market will continue to gain from net fund inflows and a relatively stable economic and political environment. 5 Outlook and Strategy on Income Funds
