Fund Description

The MFS Emerging Markets Debt Fund Class I (MEDIX) is an actively managed fund that seeks to provide a high level of current income as well as the potential for capital appreciation. It does this by investing in a variety of emerging-debt securities. The fund primarily invests in sovereign and sovereign government-sponsored agency debt that is U.S dollar-denominated. MEDIX uses fundamental analysis to limit risk while providing high income.

Given its low costs and focus on emerging-market debt, MEDIX makes for a great subcore position in a broader fixed-income portfolio. The fund is managed by MFS Investment Management.
