Asian Bond Fund - ABF
Although the original ABF issue was denominated in U.S. dollars, the second ABF issue was denominated in member currency funds. Overall, the main goal of this bond fund is to further enhance the underdeveloped bond markets of EMEAP member countries by enhancing the efficiency of financial intermediation and promoting financial stability.
Another reason for the establishment of this class of bond funds is to give some Asian countries, who have built up massive foreign reserves, the opportunity to invest in financial assets that would return benefits back to the region.
