Performance comment

The Fund is managed against a composite benchmark, with approximately 30% of the portfolio invested in bonds. The bulk of the Fund’s assets are invested in equities on a longer-term view of growth prospects, while within the bond portfolio we have limited exposure to gilts as yields are at unattractively low levels and we anticipate a period of market weakness in early 2013. Amongst the key contributors last month was bus and rail franchise operator National Express. Despite the difficult economic background, the company remains on course to meet its full year earnings target with the c2c franchise driving revenues in its rail division. In Europe, we have identified several companies whose specialty healthcare solutions significantly enhance quality of patient life. Swedish group Elekta is a good example. The company is a provider of radiation surgery equipment for cancer treatment, gained on optimism that it will continue to gain market share from rivals such as Varian Medical Systems and Siemens. We continue to favour data centre providers such as US group Equinix, which has recorded strong sales growth on the back of demand for digital technology with data storage solutions providing scope for efficient management of energy costs.

Fund Specific Risks

Charges to Capital

Part, or all of the periodic annual management fee(s) and expenses may be charged to capital which could increase the potential for the capital value of your investment to be eroded. Your capital could also decrease if income withdrawals exceed the growth rate of the fund(s).

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.

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.

Derivative Exposure

The fund invests in derivatives as part of its investment strategy, over and above their use for Efficient Portfolio Management (EPM). Investors should be aware that the use of these instruments can, under certain circumstances, increase the volatility and risk profile of the Fund beyond that expected of a fund that only invests in equities. The fund may also be exposed to the risk that the company issuing the derivative may not honour their obligations which in turn could lead to losses arising.

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.

Solvency of Bond Issuers

If the fund you choose invests in bonds there is a risk that the issuer may default, resulting in a loss to the portfolio.

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.
