1 multi-asset risk-targeted solutions Fund update - fourth quarter 2014 For professional adviser use only and not for distribution to retail investors

3 multi-asset risk-targeted solutions Need to know To help advisers assess suitability for clients, our risk-targeted Funds are managed to be aligned with Distribution Technology (DT) risk profiles 4 to 8, based on asset allocations and volatility boundaries that are updated quarterly. The Funds benefit from the best ideas of the multi-asset team through their fund and investment selection strategies, using a blend of long-term core positions and short-term opportunities that incorporate different assets and spread risk for effective risk management. The performance information for the multi-asset risk-targeted solutions in this document are based on the C share class, which has the lowest charging structure of the share classes available. To help with comparisons between the thousands of funds, UK authorised funds are categorised into different groups (known as sectors) by the UK investment management trade association, known as the Investment Association (IA). The IA sector will include funds with different share classes and different charges and is provided for illustrative purposes only. Performance returns will vary between share classes due to the different charges. Contents 4. Volatility summary 5. Performance summary 6. Global sector performance 7.

4 Volatility summary Since start of risk-targeting to (The Multi-Asset team started risk-targeting the Funds on 01 December 2012) The funds are designed to achieve attractive total returns, but crucially they are tasked with doing so while staying in pre-defined volatility bands. That way, advisers and their investors can have a reasonable idea of what level of risk is being taken in order to achieve those returns. Annulaised volatility (%) No. IV No. V No. VI No. VII No. VIII As the managers of these funds, we are well aware of the importance of keeping the funds within the set volatility bands. We are therefore pleased to report we have been successful in that task, as the chart opposite illustrates. No. IV has incurred the lowest volatility over its life, while No. VIII has incurred the most. This is down to the asset allocations that are set by Distribution Technology, so, for example, No. IV has no direct exposure to emerging market equities, while in No. VIII they make up 28% of the portfolio.

5 Performance summary Quarter ending Since start of risk-targeting to (The Multi-Asset team started risk-targeting the Funds on 01 December 2012) Total return (%) Total return (%) No. IV No. V No. VI No. VII No. VIII 20 No. IV No. V No. VI No. VII No. VIII While the volatility profiles are as we d expect them to be, the total return profiles are not quite as neat and tidy. This is partly because the funds have only been running for a short time, perhaps not allowing the usual long-term relationships between risk and return to assert themselves. There is also a sense that current market conditions are unusual in so far as lower risk assets have been leading markets higher, whereas the opposite is usually true. The last quarter has thrown up a good example of this, as did 2014 as a whole. Among the best assets to have held were UK Gilts, which are considered to be the safest assets you can buy, while UK equities made paltry returns in comparison. The same is true in the world of equities, where US equities, which are considered to be at the safer end of the spectrum, made exceptional returns, while areas such as emerging markets or Europe struggled to progress. 5 Source: FE Analytics, total return, annualised ratios, UK sterling basis, based on C Accumulation shares. funds 5 year performance: No. IV 41.5%, No. V 49.0%, No. VI 54.2%, No. VII 41.3%, No. VIII 41.4%.

This had knock-on effects on several other markets and assets, most notably the currencies of oil producers such as Russia. It was a volatile quarter for equity markets, containing two sharp selloffs that were followed by equally dramatic rebounds. Global equities ended the quarter with positive returns though, driven largely by runaway performance from the US. UK equities produced a flat return, mimicking their performance over the year as a whole, while European equities lost ground. Emerging markets were a mixed bag, with energy exposure hurting markets like Latin America and Eastern Europe, but bolstering some in Asia. Confusion over the potential impacts of the lower cost of oil is causing concern over deflation, particularly in the Eurozone. This concern drove developed-market sovereign bond prices higher, as they are seen as one of the few assets that can perform well against a deflationary backdrop.
