As an index tracking fund, its objective is to produce returns in line with the FTSE All- Share Index. Charges There is no preliminary charge payable on the purchase of units.

Manager s Statement This report covers the annual period from 1 July 2014 to 30 June 2015 for the Chariguard UK Equity Fund, which provides participating charities with investment exposure to the UK equity market. On 30 June 2015 the quoted offer price of the income units and the accumulation units was and respectively. On a mid-price basis, the total return on the Fund over the period, before management charges and other expenses, was 2.57% compared with 2.52% for the FTSE All-Share Index. This is consistent with the Fund s indextracking objectives. These financial statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Charities Act 2011, the Charities (Accounts and Reports) Regulations 2008 and the Scheme Particulars establishing the Fund. Allianz Global Investors GmbH, UK Branch 17 August 2015 Accounting policies The Financial Statements have been prepared in accordance with the requirements of the Statement of Recommended Practice ( SORP ) for Authorised Funds issued by The Investment Association in October 2010 and the Scheme Particulars establishing the Fund. 4

7 Chariguard UK Equity Fund Report of the Manager Through close replication of the Fund s benchmark index, the FTSE All-Share Index, the assets of the Chariguard UK Equity Fund continue to be invested in accordance with its index-tracking objectives. As of the 30 June 2015, the size of the Fund was 96.5million, whilst the principal transactions during the period took place only as a result of the purchase and sale of units and changes to the benchmark index. review and outlook The FTSE All-Share Index produced a total return of 2.5% during the twelve months to 30 June The UK maintained a robust trajectory of real Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth at 2.9%, whilst Consumer Price Index declined sharply to 0%, due to the sharp fall in global oil prices. UK International Labour Organisation unemployment continued its descent towards 5.6%, as the labour market appeared to absorb joblessness alongside subdued growth in wages. In 2015, macroeconomic consensus anticipates a more subdued 2.4~2.5% GDP growth trajectory sustained over the next 3 years. Weak demand from the Eurozone continues to drag upon the UK as a whole, together with an ongoing need to reduce indebtedness throughout the economy through fiscal austerity. Continued progress has been made in restoring government finances, with the deficit forecast at around 4.3 GDP, though still deviating from the ~2-3% long-term average experienced by the UK in the years preceding the financial crisis in Having feared the consequences of a hung parliament, markets broadly welcomed the surprise Conservative majority election victory in May, though constitutional uncertainty may re-emerge over the coming years given the SNP s landslide victory in Scotland and Prime Minister David Cameron s commitment to hold a referendum on the European Union within two years. There has also been a question of succession and the impact upon the timing of the political cycle on the economy, given that Mr Cameron has indicated he will stand aside as leader before 2020 and not serve a full second term. The Conservative budget has promised to adhere to 30 billion of savings in the next Parliament, with austerity set to end one year earlier than forecast in 2019~2020. Investors have also continued to evaluate the policy reaction function of the Bank of England (BoE) in response to the record low rate of inflation at 0%. The assessment of Governor Mark Carney is that this is a temporary phenomenon, with around three-quarters of the decline attributable to a combination of the collapse in oil prices, food prices and also the appreciation of sterling reducing the price of imports. The expectation of the BoE is that labour supply growth within the economy, driven primarily by expansion and re-entry into labour participation amongst older workers, is containing wage growth and has consequently contributed to moderating inflation. The outlook is for inflation pressure to return as the labour market normalises. Risk review Chariguard UK Equity Fund is managed in accordance with the objective set out on page 4. In achieving this objective, the Manager accepts certain risks inherent in investing in financial markets, principally market price risk. These risks are discussed in more detail below. Subject to the constraints set out in the Scheme Particulars, the Manager may use stock index futures. price risk: price risk arises mainly from the uncertainty about future prices of financial instruments held. It represents the potential loss the Fund might suffer through holding market positions in the face of price movements. A dedicated fund manager has the responsibility for monitoring the existing portfolio selection in accordance with the Fund s investment objectives and seeks to ensure that individual stocks meet an acceptable risk reward profile. Interest rate risk: Interest rate risk is the risk of movements in the value of financial instruments as a result of fluctuations in interest rates. The Fund invests predominantly in equities, the values of which are not directly affected by changes in prevailing market interest rates. The Fund therefore has minimal exposure to interest rate risk. Liquidity risk: Liquidity risk relates to the capacity to meet liabilities. The principal liquidity risk is the ability to repay funds to unitholders following redemption of units, and is dependent on the liquidity of the underlying assets. Redemptions are notified to the Manager in advance, and appropriate cash management procedures are in place to ensure prompt settlement of these liabilities. As the Fund s assets mainly comprise of realisable securities, liquidity risk is not considered to be significant. Foreign currency risk: Foreign currency risk is the risk of movements in the values of overseas financial instruments as a result of fluctuations in exchange rates. It 5

8 Chariguard UK Equity Fund Report to the Manager continued is not the Manager s policy to hedge such foreign exposure. The Fund predominantly holds Sterling investments and therefore the value of the investments and the revenue from them have minimal exposure to foreign currency risk. Credit risk: Credit risk is the risk of default by a counterparty in discharging its obligations under transactions that could result in the Fund suffering a loss. Outstanding settlements are subject to credit risk. Credit risk is mitigated by the Fund through its decision to transact with counterparties of high credit quality. The Fund only buys and sells investments through brokers which are approved counterparties, thus minimising the risk of default during settlement. The Fund holds mainly equities and so has minimal exposure to credit risk. Risk associated with the use of leverage: Leverage may be created either through the use of derivatives or through the purchase of assets acquired on the basis of borrowing. As the Fund uses neither of these there is no leverage risk. Risk Management Monitoring The Independent Enterprise Risk Management function is responsible for portfolio risk oversight. The function defines which risk models and analytics are used to ensure Allianz Global Investors complies with all regulatory requirements and ensures that further independent risk analysis and supervision beyond regulation is conducted where appropriate. To ensure full oversight, the Independent Enterprise Risk Management function prepares a quarterly holistic risk report covering all risk types across Allianz Global Investors. The report lists all relevant risks that were identified, including an assessment of whether Allianz Global Investors risk appetite has been exceeded, together with an assessment whether sufficient mitigation actions have been taken. The risk report is discussed and reviewed in the quarterly global and regional Risk Committee meetings before being presented to the Global Executive Committee. Based on the risk report, the Risk Committee, as mandated by the Global Executive Committee, fulfils its oversight and escalation responsibilities which encompass all risks including business, portfolio, operational and reputational risks.

32 Chariguard UK Equity Fund Notes to the Final Financial Statements for the year ended 30 June Accounting policies These financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified by the revaluation of investments, and on a going concern basis in accordance with the Charities Act 2011, the Charities (Accounts and Reports) Regulations 2008 and the Scheme Particulars establishing the Fund. Included within the Regulations is a requirement to prepare financial statements in accordance with the Statement of Recommended Practice (SORP) for Authorised Funds issued by The Investment Association in October These financial statements are prepared in compliance with the SORP. The principal accounting policies are described below: a. Revenue: Dividends are treated as receivable on the date on which the security is quoted ex-dividend where the amounts are reasonably determined. Foreign dividends are grossed up at the appropriate rate of tax. Bank interest is accounted for on an accruals basis. b. Stock dividends: Ordinary stock dividends are recognised wholly as revenue and are based on the market value of the share on the date they are quoted ex-dividend. Where an enhancement is offered, the amount by which the market value of the shares (on the day they are quoted ex-dividend) exceeds the cash dividend is taken to capital. The ordinary element of the stock dividend is treated as revenue and does not form part of the distribution. 2. Net capital (losses) gains c. Special dividends: The underlying circumstances behind special dividends are reviewed in determining whether the receipt is revenue or capital in nature. Special dividends recognised as revenue will form part of the distribution. Any tax treatment will follow the accounting treatment of the principal amount. d. Valuation: The investments of the Fund have been valued as at close of business on 30 June 2015, being the last valuation date of the year, at the bid market price net of any accrued interest. Unlisted, suspended and unapproved investments are valued on the basis of the best information available to the Manager. e. Foreign currencies: Assets and liabilities have been translated into Sterling at the rates of exchange at the balance sheet date. Transactions denominated in foreign currencies are translated into Sterling at the exchange rates ruling at the date of the transactions. The resulting exchange differences are included in the Statement of Total Return. f. Expenses: Expenses are recognised on an accruals basis and charged against revenue, except handling charges which are treated as capital (see Note 2). g. Distribution policy: Net revenue is accumulated in the Fund throughout the year and distributed in full each quarter end (Losses) Gains on non-derivatives 1 (1,203) 10,932 Losses on currencies 1 (5) (12) Handling charges (30) (28) Net capital (losses) gains (1,238) 10,892 1 Net losses listed above of 1,208,000 excluding handling charges, comprise net realised gains of 4,171,000 and net unrealised losses of 5,379,000 ( net gains of 10,920,000 comprising net realised gains of 4,275,000 and net unrealised gains of 6,645,000). 30
