2 Aim of the Fund This Fund aims to achieve capital growth through investment in leading North American companies. The Fund invests mainly in the larger companies of the United States of America considered to have good prospects for increasing profits and selling on attractive price/earnings ratios. The Fund s portfolio is based on the sector weightings of the US stock market and emphasis is placed on sectors expected to outperform relative to the market. Details of the specific and general risks associated with our funds are contained within the Key Investor Information Documents (KIID). For a copy of the KIID and the prospectus visit or telephone Fund manager commentary During the month of August, the Allianz US Equity Fund returned -.40% in USD terms (gross of fees), outperforming the benchmark S&P 500 Index. (Actual share class NAV performance records will be different). For this short evaluation period, outperformance was driven by both stock selection and sector allocation. On a sector allocation basis, the Fund s overweight in technology and underweight in utilities contributed to relative performance. Our overweights in the telecommunications and health care sectors were modest detractors from relative returns. During the month of August, we reduced stocks that no longer met our investment criteria and redirected the proceeds to more attractive opportunities. In particular, we trimmed our positions in medical equipment manufacturer Varian Medical Systems and General Electric to take profits. In the coming months, we will continue to adhere to our investment process and remain focused on identifying undervalued companies undergoing positive change.

Data gross of fees; calculation at the net asset value (BVI method) based on the assumption that distributions are reinvested and excludes initial charges. Individual costs such as fees, commissions and other charges have not been taken into consideration and would have a negative impact on the performance if they were included. If the currency in which the past performance is displayed differs from the currency of the country in which the investor resides, then the investor should be aware that due to the exchange rate fluctuations the performance shown may be higher or lower if converted into the investor s local currency.
