The Fund invests primarily in global investment grade debt securities. The Fund will have limited RMB denominated underlying investments. 2. The Fund is exposed to interest rate risks which may affect the price of bonds, credit, currency, investment grade bond, liquidity and Eurozone sovereign debt crisis risks, and, for currency hedged classes, risks associated with the currency hedged classes and class currency. For RMB hedged class, risks associated with the RMB currency and currency hedged classes risks. RMB is currently not freely convertible and RMB convertibility from offshore RMB (CNH) to onshore RMB (CNY) is a managed currency process subject to foreign exchange control policies of and restrictions imposed by the Chinese government. There can be no assurance that RMB will not be subject to devaluation at some point. The Manager may, under extreme market conditions when there is not sufficient RMB for currency conversion and with the approval of the Trustee, pay redemption monies and/or distributions in USD. 3. Where the income generated by the Fund is insufficient to pay a distribution as the Fund declares, the Manager may at its discretion determine such distributions may be paid from capital including realised and unrealised capital gains. Investors should note that the payment of distributions out of capital represents a return or withdrawal of part of the amount they originally invested or from any capital gains attributable to that original investment. Any payments of distributions by the Fund may result in an immediate decrease in the net asset value per unit. 4. Investors may be subject to substantial losses. 5. Investors should not solely rely on this document to make any investment decision. Global investing - A less volatile choice Monthly distribution classes available (Aim at monthly distribution.

2 Why we believe the JPMorgan Global Bond Fund is suitable for retail investors in the current market environment? What is the likely market environment in the next 6-12 months? Gradual U.S. Fed tightening and rising Treasury yields to be countered by the European Central Bank (ECB) and Bank of Japan s monetary easing policies Improving U.S. economy, ECB bond buying and demand for yield to benefit global credit sectors Greater macro uncertainty and swings in capital flows present challenges Divergent growth rates and monetary policies to lead to higher currency volatility vs What does the new JPMorgan Global Bond Fund offer? Being globally diversified with active duration management becomes critical as central bank policies diverge The Fund offers a wide universe for dynamic sector and industry selection Turn challenges into opportunities by seeking to maximise total return potential from a range of alpha sources: Country, Sector, Issuer, Duration and Currency Structural appreciation of the USD supports the case for USD hedging Investors should seek professional advice regarding the suitability of any investment products.

3 Why invest in the JPMorgan Global Bond Fund? LOWER VOLATILITY A Lower-volatility Solution for Choppy Market Conditions GLOBALLY DIVERSIFIED INCOME OPPORTUNITIES The JPMorgan Global Bond Fund invests primarily in global debt securities markets. Historically, global bond investing is a diversified fixed income strategy which exhibits lower volatility. The Fund s benchmark Barclays Global Aggregate ex Securitised Index (USD hedged) representing a broad global bond universe covering U.S., Canadian, pan-european and Asia Pacific bonds has demonstrated resilience over various market cycles in the longer term. 10-year volatility of benchmark 2.78% LONGER-TERM RESILIENCE OF GLOBAL BONDS ACROSS MARKET AND INTEREST RATE CYCLES Rising Interest Rates Global financial crisis Eurozone crisis and U.S. downgrade U.S. tapering talk Oil price collapse Apr-05 Jul-05 Oct-05 Jan-06 Apr-06 Jul-06 Oct-06 Jan-07 Apr-07 Jul-07 Oct-07 Jan-08 Apr-08 Jul-08 Oct-08 Jan-09 Apr-09 Jul-09 Oct-09 Jan-10 Apr-10 Jul-10 Oct-10 Jan-11 Apr-11 Jul-11 Oct-11 Jan-12 Apr-12 Jul-12 Oct-12 Jan-13 Apr-13 Jul-13 Oct-13 Jan-14 Apr-14 Jul-14 Oct-14 Jan-15 Apr-15 Jul-15 Oct-15 6% Barclays Global Aggregate ex Securitised Index (USD hedged) 10yr U.S. Treasury Yield (RHS) Source: J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Bloomberg, Barclays, as of Index numbers are rebased to 100 in April In the face of rising rates in the U.S. and loosening from central banks in the Eurozone and Japan, the Fund s globally diversified holdings that also take into consideration duration will likely help drive alpha for investors. The Fund is dynamically managed to invest in various rates markets with relatively low correlations. This active approach not only helps to identify the best opportunities but also to reduce volatility.

4 Globally Diversified, Best Ideas Portfolio LOWER VOLATILITY In today s complex and challenging fixed income markets, traditional bond investing may no longer provide such an attractive long-term risk/reward profile. Our solution to this investment challenge is to adopt a more flexible approach; to take advantage of different alpha sources including country, sector, issuer, duration and currency when investing in bonds. GLOBALLY DIVERSIFIED INCOME OPPORTUNITIES By providing access to the best ideas of J.P. Morgan s globally integrated and highly experienced team of fixed income investment specialists, the JPMorgan Global Bond Fund enhances investors bond positioning to help capitalise on our highest conviction fixed income ideas, wherever they exist.

Morgan Asset Management, as of The Fund offers investors access to a wide range of global debt securities issued by international governments, quasi-government organisations, agencies, financial institutions and corporations, with the aim of achieving a return in excess of global bond markets.

Furthermore, to capture other attractive opportunities in the fixed income space, the Fund will also have some exposure to high yield bonds. Investment Grade Source: J.P.

5 USD-hedged Portfolio Maximising Potential Gains on USD Strength While the Fund is globally diversified, in an environment of expected dollar strength, the portfolio is hedged back to the USD with a view to maximising its USD exposure, minimising the potential weakness of other currencies, and potentially lowering overall volatility.

Morgan Asset Management Guide to the Markets Asia 4Q Data reflect most recently available as of The Real Trade Weighted Exchange Rate Index is the weighted average of a country s currency relative to a basket of other major currencies adjusted for the effects of inflation. The weights are determined by comparing the relative trade balances, in terms of one country s currency, with other countries within the basket. The Dollar Index is a trade-weighted index calculated using six major world currencies. RMB Investor Friendly LOWER VOLATILITY As China has been gradually liberalising its financial markets and currency, the RMB has been gaining popularity among local investors. The pool of RMB deposits in Hong Kong has grown to a staggering RMB854 billion as of October 2015^. GLOBALLY DIVERSIFIED INCOME OPPORTUNITIES The Fund is the first SFC-authorised global bond fund to offer RMB-hedged share classes* with distributive and accumulative choices giving RMB investors another avenue for investment. In an environment of low or even negative interest rates, the hunt for yield is likely to continue. Investors searching for yield in a global bond fund might consider investing in the Fund. In addition to RMB, the Fund also offers USD, HKD, AUD Hedged, CAD Hedged, NZD Hedged Classes. ^ Source: J.P.
