3 Introducing the Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio One of the world s more vibrant and fast-growing economies, India offers a wealth of investment opportunities. To provide access to this exciting market, we present the Standard Life Investments Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio. Through this, we draw on the investment expertise of our Indian joint venture HDFC AMC, the country s leading fund management company. It advises us in our selection of those small- and mid-cap stocks that we believe have the potential to deliver excellent risk-adjusted long-term returns. An invaluable relationship Indian mid-cap stocks require detailed, resource-intensive, bottom-up analysis. On-theground expertise, scale and local investment insights are also key. As such, portfolio advice will come from Chirag Setalvad, the Mumbai-based portfolio manager of the Indian HDFC Mid-cap Opportunities Fund.* This award-winning Fund has delivered excellent returns since inception, outperforming its benchmark by 7% per annum.** (For more detailed and up-to-date information on Chirag s performance track record with HDFC funds, please visit www DOWNLOADS/monthly-fact-sheet). Why Indian equities? India s position as one of the world s most rapidly growing economies looks set to continue, thanks to a young and burgeoning population (over half of its citizens are under 25), rising consumer class and stable political backdrop compared with other emerging markets. Its economy is diverse, with high-quality companies operating in industries from IT and agriculture, to pharmaceuticals and services. The country is also undertaking a series of reforms designed to attract investment and create a truly dynamic economy. Meanwhile, its financial system is long established, healthy and well regulated. As a result of these factors, India has replaced China as the world s fastest-growing large economy. The country s GDP is also expected to be bigger than Germany and Japan combined by the end of the decade on a purchasing power parity basis.*** Chart 1: HDFC Mid-cap Opportunities Fund has delivered excellent performance** Indian HDFC Mid-cap Opportunities Fund Nifty 500 NIFTY Mid Cap 100 Source: Thomson Reuters Datastream, 31 December, 2015 * The HDFC Mid-cap Opportunities Fund is a local Indian portfolio on the HDFC AMC platform.

4 Why invest in small- and mid-cap stocks? They are relatively less well known, meaning stocks have a chance to climb rapidly once investors become aware of their potential. They have historically outperformed largecaps and offer excellent diversification. Many firms operate in new and expanding market segments. Many companies are in charge of their own destinies and therefore more insulated against macro headwinds. What we can offer The Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio is managed by Dr Mark Vincent. He is a portfolio manager within our 12-strong global emerging markets equities team. Mark will be advised by Chirag Setalvad, who will provide invaluable local expertise and investment insight to help Mark select those Indian equities in which he sees the best outperformance prospects.

It is an exciting opportunity to create a truly diversified Indian mid-cap portfolio with the potential to deliver strong risk-adjusted returns for long-term investors. 4 Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio

5 What is our investment approach? To uncover the best available opportunities, HDFC AMC utilises a bottomup, fundamental stock-specific research process. Its research efforts concentrate on understanding a company s operations and forming a view on the key drivers and risks. Based on this extensive research and analysis, Standard Life Investments constructs the Portfolio utilising a disciplined framework that prioritises company-specific insights, while balancing risks. Fundamental analysis and research The investment universe for Indian equities is large, deep and liquid, with over 3,000 stocks available for purchase in the public markets. It is also rapidly expanding. From this universe, HDFC AMC conducts extensive bottom-up research to create a Core List of stocks, consisting of sustainable, quality companies that demonstrate credibility and competence of management. The Core List effectively covers close to 90% of India s listed market capitalisation and forms the focus of the fundamental research and analysis. HDFC AMC s analysts closely monitor these stocks and are in continuous contact with companies senior management teams in order to revise and/or build upon existing data. HDFC AMC also conducts fundamental analysis on all Core List companies, applying both qualitative and quantitative metrics. Core List scoring Each stock on the Core List is attributed a score from one to four based on fundamental analysis and research. In addition to scoring, HDFC AMC analysts periodically submit reports on these companies, including (but not limited to) detailed financials, valuation comparisons, complete rating history and target price history. Portfolio construction & implementation At Standard Life Investments, we then use this analysis and resulting stock insights to construct the Portfolio. High-conviction stocks are strongly represented. Stock selection and position weighting are not driven by benchmark considerations. However, volatility and liquidity are considered when determining the position size of any particular stock. Standard Life Investments investment risk management team calculates key risk information daily. The team, in turn, notifies the manager of any significant changes with the Portfolio s risk profile. Overall, we seek to produce a well-diversified portfolio. We also use non-proprietary and proprietary quantitative tools to help identify and control risk factor exposures, including sector and geographic weights, as well as thematic risks, to ensure that no unintended risk dominates and that the Portfolio is suitably diversified. Chirag Setalvad, Portfolio Advisor Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio India is an exciting and diverse market, providing unique opportunities for bottom-up stock pickers. The mid-cap segment is a particularly fertile ground for long-term alpha opportunities. I am delighted to be able to make our expertise in this area available outside of India, in partnership with Standard Life Investments. Indian Equity Mid-cap Opportunities Portfolio 5

6 What is our investment expertise? Our global emerging markets equities team comprises 12 high-calibre investment specialists with an average of 16 years industry experience.
