Performance comment

International equity markets ended the year on a positive note. The main contributor was US data storage group Equinix. The company has recorded impressive sales growth on the back of demand for digital technology with data storage solutions providing scope for efficient management of energy costs. The shares were added to the Nasdaq 100 Index in December. Amongst industrials, US group BorgWarner is a leading provider of components for the autos industry that enhance fuel efficiency and control pollution from cars. The company is expanding in the Asia Pacific region, recently opening a new production facility in China. The main detractor last month was our holding in natural gas producer BG Group, which had cut back production guidance on delays to project start-ups and lost further ground on weaker energy prices. Data centre operator Telecity fell back on profit taking. However, demand for data centres is growing and Telecity has recently added capacity in the key London docklands market. New Oriental Education was subject to profit taking at year-end as the Chinese equity market had rallied strongly. The share price had recovered in recent months as an investigation into its accounting policies showed no evidence of malpractice.

Fund Specific Risks

Emerging Markets

The fund invests in emerging markets. Generally less well regulated than the UK. There is an increased chance of political and economic instability with less reliable custody, dealing and settlement arrangements. The market(s) can be less liquid. If a fund investing in markets is affected by currency exchange rates, the investment could either increase or decrease. These investments therefore carry more risk.

Concentrated Portfolio

The fund may invest in a relatively smaller number of stocks. This stock concentration may carry more risk than funds spread across a larger number of companies.

Smaller Companies

The fund invests in smaller companies. Smaller companies shares can be more volatile and less liquid than larger company shares, so smaller companies funds can carry more risk.

Value of Investments

The value of investments, and any income can fall, as well as rise, so you could get back less than you invested. Neither capital nor income is guaranteed.

Investments Long Term

Investments should be regarded as long term and are not suitable for money which may be needed in the short term, you should always have a sufficient cash reserve.

Exchange Rate

This fund invests in securities outside the UK. The value of investments and any income from them may therefore decrease or increase as a result of changes in exchange rates between currencies.

Umbrella Liabilities

If the liabilities of one fund were to exceed its assets, the other funds within the scheme might have to transfer across money to cover the liabilities.

Ethical Restrictions

The fund is unable to invest in certain sectors and companies due to the ethical criteria used to select investments for the fund.

Returns Are Not Guaranteed

What you receive when you sell your investment is not guaranteed; it depends on how your investments perform.

Inflation

Inflation will reduce the real value of your investments in future.

Taxation and Tax Relief

Levels of taxation and tax relief are subject to change.
