Voya Global Diversified Payment Fund

Pursuing Consistent Income

In today’s environment of evolving market cycles, finding sources of consistent income can be daunting. While there are many options, each come with their own advantages and drawbacks. Some can produce predictable monthly payments while others can offer growth potential and daily liquidity should circumstances change. Yet few, if any, can offer all three. Meanwhile, most income investments tend to focus on a narrow range of asset classes and factors, leading to less overall portfolio diversification than many investors may even realize.

Standard Deviation
Standard Deviation:

A measure of the degree to which an individual probability value varies from the distribution mean. The higher the number, the greater the risk.


The sensitivity of a portfolio's returns to changes in the return of the market as measured by the index or benchmark that represents the market. A portfolio with a beta of 1.0 behaves exactly like the index. A beta less than 1.0 suggests lower risk than the index, while a beta greater than 1.0 indicates a risk level higher than the index.


The proportion of the variation in a portfolio's returns that can be explained by the variability of the returns of an index. High R-squared (close to 1.0) is usually consistent with broad diversification.


A measure of risk-adjusted performance; alpha reflects the difference between a portfolio's actual return and the return that could be expected give its risk as measured by beta.

Sharpe Ratio
Sharpe Ratio:

A risk-adjusted measure calculated using standard deviation and excess return to determine reward per unit of risk. The higher the Sharpe ratio, the better the portfolio's historical risk-adjusted performance.

Information Ratio
Information Ratio:

The ratio of portfolio returns in excess of a market index to the variability of those excess returns; in effect, information ratio describes the value added by active management in relation to the risk taken to achieve those returns.

Principal Risks

All investing involves risks of fluctuating prices and the uncertainties of rates of return and yield inherent in investing. Foreign Investing does pose special risks including currency fluctuation, economic and political risks not found in investments that are solely domestic. Emerging Market stocks may be especially volatile. Stock of an issuer in the Fund's portfolio may decline in price if the issuer fails to make anticipated Dividend Payments because, among other reasons, the issuer of the security experiences a decline in its financial condition. Securities of Small- and Mid-Sized Companies may entail greater price volatility and less liquidity than investing in stocks of larger companies. Other risks of the Fund include but are not limited to: Convertible Securities Risks; Market Trends Risks; Other Investment Companies Risks; Price Volatility Risks; Inability to Sell Securities Risks; and Securities Lending Risks. Investors should consult the Fund's Prospectus and Statement of Additional Information for a more detailed discussion of the Fund's risks.

Risks specific to Managed Payment:

The Fund is expected to make monthly payments under its Managed Payment Policy regardless of the Fund's investment performance. Because these payments will be made from Fund assets, the Fund's monthly payments may reduce the amount of assets available for investment by the Fund. It is possible for the Fund to suffer substantial investment losses and simultaneously experience additional asset reductions as a result of its payments to shareholders under the Managed Payment Policy. The Fund may, under its Managed Payment Policy, return capital to shareholders which will decrease their costs basis in the Fund and will affect the amount of any capital gain or loss that shareholders realize when selling or exchanging their Fund shares.
