4 Manager s Investment Report Investment Objective and Policy The objective of this Trust is to track the capital performance of the UK equity market, as represented by the FTSE All-Share Index, by investment in a representative sample of stocks selected from all economic sectors. Securities in the FTSE All-Share Index will be held with weightings generally proportionate to their company s market capitalisation. From time to time non-index constituents may be held as a result of corporate actions and these holdings will be sold or transferred as soon as reasonably practical. Manager s Investment Report During the period under review, the bid price of the Trust s R-Class distribution units rose by 4.94%. FTSE, the Index compiler, calculates the benchmark Index at the end of the business day using closing prices, whereas the Trust is valued using prevailing prices at 12 noon. Therefore, for tracking purposes the Trust has been revalued using closing prices. On this basis, over the review period from the close of business on 6 October 2014 to the close of business on 2 April 2015 (the first and last working days of the accounting period), the Trust rose by 5.51% on a capital only basis compared with the FTSE All-Share Index increase of 5.49% on a capital only basis (Source: Bloomberg), producing a tracking difference of +0.02%. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and any income from them may go down as well as up. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of any overseas investments to rise or fall. The FTSE All-Share Index is calculated by FTSE International Limited ( FTSE ).

The US economy rebounded strongly and grew at its fastest pace in 11 years during the third quarter, although growth slowed over the closing months of The UK economy saw a marked turnaround, led by a revival in the dominant services sector. In both economies, the central banks signalled a shift towards a gradual tightening of monetary policy provided the recovery is maintained. Wall Street indices recorded an all-time high in the first quarter of 2015, as the Dollar reached a four-year peak against a basket of currencies, enhancing returns for UK-based investors. Pressure to raise interest rates eased in recent 2

5 Manager s Investment Report continued months as the oil price fell dramatically, declining to a six-year low in January. In contrast, the UK equity market struggled to make headway as the mining and oil & gas sectors, which comprise a substantial proportion of the FTSE 100 Index, were weighed down by the weakness of commodity markets. The FTSE All-Share Index comprises the FTSE 250 Index (+13.0%), which was the best performing element over the review period, the FTSE SmallCap Index (+5.9%) and the FTSE 100 Index (+4.1%) (Source: Bloomberg). Over the review period, major sectors such as Industrial Metals & Mining (+47.5%), Food & Drug Retailers (+32.2%), and Forestry & Paper (+29.8%) showed the largest positive returns; the most underperforming sectors were Oil Equipment, Services & Distribution (-15.7%), Mining (-14.0%) and Oil & Gas Producers (-11.4%). Trust Review Companies held within the Trust are held with weightings generally proportionate to those of the benchmark Index. Therefore, investment activity, other than to raise or invest cash, is only necessary when there are changes to the benchmark Index, or as a result of corporate action. During the period under review there were two quarterly Index reviews. At the quarterly Index review in December 2014, there were two additions: the footwear manufacturer Jimmy Choo and the solar investment company NextEnergy Solar Fund. There were four deletions: BlueCrest AllBlue Fund, mining company Petropavlovsk, oil and gas exploration company JKX Oil & Gas and the Indonesia-based thermal coal producer Asia Resource Minerals. The largest increases to changes in free share capital were for online takeaway ordering services provider Just Eat, London Stock Exchange Group and media firm Informa. The largest decreases to free share capital were for BP, BHP Billiton and the catering company Compass Group. At the quarterly Index review in March 2015, there were four additions: automobile insurance and breakdown coverage provider AA, retail banking company Virgin Money Holdings, biopharmaceutical company Oxford BioMedica and mining company Petropavlovsk. Hardy Oil & Gas was the sole deletion. The largest increases to changes in free share capital were for BT Group, entertainment facilities company Merlin Entertainments and leisure & travel services company TUI AG. The largest decreases to free share capital were for International Consolidated Airlines Group, Royal Dutch Shell and the advertising firm WPP. Merger and acquisition activities outside the FTSE quarterly reviews included the household products company Reckitt Benckiser demerging its addiction unit Indivior; TUI Travel merging with German TUI AG to form TUI Group; engineer Amec acquiring Foster Wheeler AG (USA) to become AMEC Foster Wheeler; the oil & gas explorer Ophir Energy acquiring Salamander Energy to increase their global presence in Africa and South East Asia; the acquisition of construction design and 3

6 Manager s Investment Report continued engineering company Hyder Consulting by the Netherlands-based Arcadis NV to increase synergies; and the acquisition and privatisation of the internet media company Perform Group by the private company AI PG LLC. Other corporate activities included the purchase of a 9.99% stake in International Consolidated Airlines Group by Qatar Airways, resulting in a free float decrease. Spire Healthcare Group, Merlin Entertainments, telecommunication services provider Inmarsat, plastic piping supplier Polypipe and caterer SSP all saw their free float increase after strategic holders reduced their stakes. Capital raising activities to fund expansion included rights issues by the business information services provider UBM, the medical devices provider Consort Medical, the containers and packaging company RPC, the insurance management company Charles Taylor and distributions company Connect Group. There were also primary placings to fund growth opportunities by BT Group, the building materials company CRH and the retailer Poundland Group. In addition, TSB Banking Group increased its free float to 50% subsequent to a secondary share placing by Lloyds Banking Group. At the end of the period the Trust had holdings in all of the 642 companies in the Index. The three largest stocks in the Index at the end of the period were Royal Dutch Shell (6.0%), HSBC (5.1%) and BP (3.7%). Outlook UK economic momentum looks set to continue through 2015 and, with inflation tumbling, the Bank of England seems likely to wait until next year before raising interest rates. A steady improvement in global growth is expected throughout In the UK, stronger growth is feeding back into an improvement in the public finances, but this needs to develop into a multi-year expansion to reduce the deficit to sustainable levels. Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has brushed aside the drop in unemployment numbers to below 7%, the threshold previously mentioned as the potential trigger for a rate hike. Instead, rate increases will now be contingent on a more enigmatic combination of sustained growth in jobs, incomes and spending hinting that easy monetary conditions are set to continue for the foreseeable future. For now there is sufficient slack to allow the Bank of England to keep rates on hold through to next year, but if productivity stagnates and unemployment falls more rapidly, pressure to begin normalising interest rates will eventually increase. The election added some uncertainty, but policy is unlikely to derail the recovery. The Trust is well positioned to capture performance from this sustained recovery.

The OCF is intended to provide a reliable figure which gives the most accurate measure of what it costs to invest in a trust and is calculated based on the last period s figures. 26

29 Risk and Reward Profile Lower risk Higher risk Potentially lower rewards Potentially higher rewards This risk and reward profile is based on historical data which may not be a reliable indication of the Trust s risk and reward category in the future. The category is based on the rate at which the value of the Trust has moved up and down in the past. This Trust is in category five because it invests in company shares which generally provide higher rewards and higher risks than other investments such as bonds, cash or commercial property The Trust s category is not guaranteed to remain the same and may change over time. Even a trust in the lowest category is not a risk free investment. 27
