Named after its first client and founded in 1934, Henderson is a client-focused global business with over 900 employees worldwide and assets under management of 82.1bn (30 June 2015). Its core areas of investment expertise are European equities, global equities, global fixed income, multi-asset and alternatives. Whilst the global headquarters are based in London, Henderson offers clients access to all major markets around the globe. Henderson has offices located in Chicago, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, Edinburgh, Paris, Madrid, Zurich, Luxembourg, Amsterdam, Frankfurt, Milan, Singapore, Beijing, Hong Kong, Tokyo and Sydney. The main Asia/Pacific operations are conducted out of Singapore and the US operations out of Chicago and Milwaukee.

Clients are at the heart of everything Henderson does named after the company s first client, it reminds each employee every day to put the client first. With investment expertise across a broad range of asset classes, Henderson s investment managers have unique perspectives and operate unconstrained by a house view. Underpinning the fund management process is a comprehensive risk-control framework ensuring that investment views are translated into portfolios managed in line with investors risk and return requirements. Corporate strategy Henderson s strategy focuses on growth and globalisation. The company aims to deliver a sustained period of organic growth, attracting net new client money ahead of industry growth, and supplementing this organic growth with value accretive acquisitions. By 2018, Henderson will have established a truly global footprint, infrastructure and mind-set. Acquisitions Henderson has a strong history of acquiring businesses which add value to the company over time. Henderson has seen financial benefits from New Star and Gartmore (acquired in 2009 and 2011 respectively) in cost synergies and improved profitability. During 2014, client confidence in the newly integrated businesses manifested itself in increased flows, with over half of flows in the period coming from products or managers who joined Henderson as a result of these acquisitions. In 2014, Henderson acquired Geneva Capital Management, the US growth equity manager. This marked an important strategic milestone in the development of the North American business, adding mid- and small-cap US high quality growth equities to Henderson s international capabilities and extending the US institutional client base to an existing strong US retail presence. In April 2015, Henderson decided to sell its 40% holding in TIAA Henderson Real Estate ( TH Real Estate ) a joint venture formed in 2014 with the merger of Henderson and Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association College Retirement Equities Fund s ( TIAA-CREF ) European and Asian real estate businesses. The decision to sell the stake gives TH Real Estate the best opportunity to grow their business and rewarded Henderson and its shareholders for the significant contribution made before and after the creation of TH Real Estate. In June 2015, Henderson announced the acquisition of two Australian-based fund management boutiques, Perennial Fixed Interest and Perennial Growth Management. In a separate transaction, Henderson increased its ownership of 90 West Asset Management to 100%. The acquisitions accelerate Henderson s strategy to grow and globalise its business, extending Henderson s offering to Australian clients, adding domestic investment management capabilities to Henderson s globally focused offerings, and providing a broader platform for better growth in the Australian market.

6 Authorised Fund Manager s report Fund Managers Henderson Multi Strategy Equities Team Investment objective and policy The fund aims to provide consistent capital growth relative to the FTSE All Share Index. The fund will invest primarily in UK companies and it will not be restricted to the size of companies in which it can invest. The fund may invest in other transferable securities, money market instruments, derivatives and forward transactions, deposits and units in collective investment schemes. The fund aims to provide an annual return above that of the FTSE All Share Index, whilst minimising risk. The fund may invest primarily in UK companies included within the FTSE All Share Index, or additionally, the Scheme may seek to provide this return by investing in companies listed on other exchanges but which are associated with FTSE All Share Index listed shares. The fund s objective is not to attempt to replicate the share composition of the FTSE All Share Index. The fund manager will actively review the shares within the portfolio and effect any necessary adjustments.

7 Authorised Fund Manager s report (continued) Investment review During the period under review, the UK market was weak, generating negative returns and lagging most other equity and fixed income markets; only the Asia Pacific region performed more poorly. This result came despite positive domestic economic data, with stronger UK GDP growth and companies reporting a generally positive results year. Indeed the largely domestic mid cap 250 index provided healthy positive returns outperforming its larger FTSE 100 peers by 15%. Politics also provided a welcome tailwind, with the more pro-business Conservative Party achieving an unexpected majority in May s general election; this nicely complemented the earlier relief felt after a no vote was returned in the Scottish referendum. However, external challenges gradually caused the market to fall away. The January election of the radical left Syriza Party in Greece reignited fears over the sustainability of the eurozone and the consequential financial chaos if it were to collapse. This unfortunately went some way to offset the market-friendly announcement, in the same month, that the European Central Bank (ECB) would be embarking on a programme of quantitative easing (central bank liquidity measures) come March. However, it was ultimately the turmoil in the emerging markets, especially the slowdown in China that took the UK equity market into the red. The Asian country, arguably the main driver of world growth for the last decade, suffered a stock market crash in the summer. Increasing signs of the global economy slowing led to steep falls in many commodity prices, including oil, which dropped to approximately $40 a barrel, exacerbated by OPEC s decision not to curtail supply. Although lower input costs can be beneficial to the economy from the consumer s perspective, it did return the spectre of deflation to the financial community and thereby heavily impacted the earnings of many mega-cap companies, including the oil majors, which have a large weighting in the FTSE 100. This took the FTSE All Share index into negative territory over the review year. Fund performance During the 12 months to the end of August 2015, the fund outperformed the FTSE All Share index, returning -2.1% versus -2.3% for the benchmark (Y share class). By investment strategy, Fundamentals were good, Events positive, Liquidity mildly positive, and Relative Value was a negative contributor to fund performance. Fund activity The Fundamentals strategy had a good year. Exposure to domestic housing-related stocks, especially following an encouraging general election result, was particularly positive for the fund s holdings in Crest Nicholson Houses, Countrywide Estate Agents and Howden Joinery. Other mid-cap stocks performed well, especially the media-related Informa and United Business Media. The fund also benefited from its holding in Friends Life, which was bid for at a 15% premium by fellow Insurer Aviva. Our positions in Brit Insurance and HellermannTyton Cables also benefited from takeovers. Despite being exposed to commodities, timely purchases in out of favour mining stocks benefited the fund, as good results and dividend declarations from miners such as Rio Tinto and BHP Billiton were well received. The bid for BG Group from Royal Dutch Shell proved positive, though the latter fell on the bid premium it was offering amid the weak commodity background. On the negative side, our positions in companies with emerging markets exposure hurt overall returns. We suffered profit warnings from chemical company Elementis, Far East-focused asset manager Ashmore and Oxford Instruments, which has a sizeable exposure to Russia. Even Prudential, despite excellent numbers, fell back due to its life insurance business in the Far East. The fund also suffered further profit warnings from Rolls-Royce and Tate & Lyle. The Liquidity strategy had a mildly positive year with a steady flow of placings during the year. Primary placings to fund acquisitions were generally well received, especially the CRH placing to fund purchases emanating from disposals following the merger between rivals Holcim and Lafarge. Another positive was distribution company DCC, whose funding for its acquisition provided a 10% relative return. Also beneficial were those from UBM, Pennon Water and Unite Properties. However, the exception was poor performance from BT s placing to fund its EE acquisition, which was unfortunately hit by news of increased competition from Virgin and Liberty just the day after the placing. Secondary placings were generally disappointing as the market weakened. There was lacklustre performance in the second round of private equity placings from recent IPOs eg Just Eat and Foxtons Estate Agents and Lloyds Bank s sell-down of TSB. The retail sector was also poor, particularly the placings in Sports Direct and Poundland. Also of note was the first sale of a small part of the government s stake in Royal Bank of Scotland, which generated a small profit. Our Relative Value strategy had a negative year, with the main detractor coming from the capital structure sub strategy. The position in Vedanta continued to be volatile as the GDR (global depository receipt) leg started to catch up the more general sell-off in the mining sector, which caused the spread to widen out again. Given the depressed level of the ordinary shares, we decided to close out the underweight position and transfer the GDR position to the Event Driven strategy, as this is now more akin to a Special Situation requiring corporate action. Within the convertible bond sub-strategy, the UK primary market was very quiet. We participated in only one new issue when British Land brought 350 million in new bonds to market. We received a good allocation and took profits as the bond quickly became expensive in the days after it was issued. This performance mitigated the loss incurred on a long held, fully credit hedged position in Vedanta bonds, where 2015 saw a divergence in valuation between the bond and the credit protection, which will converge as the bond approaches maturity in July The overweight position in Reed Elsevier (listed in the Netherlands) and underweight position in Reed Elsevier (listed in the UK) benefited, as the company simplified the corporate structure, which caused the spread to narrow from relatively stressed levels. Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust 3

8 Authorised Fund Manager s report (continued) On the other hand, the Event Driven strategy had a positive year. Within the special situations sub-strategy, a position in insurance companies Aviva and Friends Life benefited, as the market started to price in synergistic benefits of their proposed merger. CSR, who had been in talks with Microchip Technology, benefited as Qualcomm stepped in to acquire the connectivity chip maker for 9 per share, a 55% premium on the share price prior to the deal. The transaction received clearance from MOFCOM, the Chinese anti-trust commission, which allowed the deal to complete in August. In the merger arbitrage sub-strategy, we saw a large 40 billion transaction as Royal Dutch Shell looked to acquire BG Group in a cash and stock deal. Given the volatile oil price and lengthy but surmountable regulatory process the discount to the offer terms has been as wide as 16.5% and we have been building a position into this. Less positively, our position in pharmaceutical company Shire suffered as the recommended takeover by US suitor AbbVie collapsed. AbbVie s board surprisingly changed their recommendation on the transaction, citing the unfavourable changes to tax legislation around tax inversion deals. Despite the bid failure, we retained our position in Shire, given the initial heavy fall in the share price, the large break fee Shire received and its strong balance sheet; these factors enabled Shire to turn predator and purchase earnings-accretive NPS Pharmaceuticals. We eventually closed the position following a strong rally for an overall small loss. Outlook External pressures are likely to remain given the slowdown in China, the eurozone, and geopolitical concerns, and could worsen with US rates likely to rise in due course. Sentiment is perhaps overly depressed, and following this summer s market fall, valuations are now more attractive. The negative sentiment in a number of sectors presents an opportunity to judge whether share prices are correctly reflecting increased risks or whether they have been over-exaggerated. Most companies, even in challenged areas, have been able to maintain healthy cashflows and balance sheets, unlike in With increasing volatility, we will use our value range process to alight on opportunities as they arise and utilise our four uncorrelated strategies to decide when risk versus reward is in the fund s favour. 4 Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust

11 Ongoing charge figure The annualised ongoing charge figure (OCF) of the fund is calculated as the ratio of the total ongoing charges to the average net asset value for twelve months.

Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust 7

12 Risk and reward profile The fund currently has 3 types of unit class in issue; I accumulation, Y accumulation and Z accumulation. The risk and reward profile is as follows: Typically Lower potential risk/reward Typically Higher potential risk/reward Lower Risk Higher Risk The Synthetic Risk and Reward Indicator (SRRI) is calculated based on historical volatility over a rolling 5 year period, it is reviewed monthly and updated if volatility has changed materially to cause a movement in the SRRI level. The SRRI is an indicator and may not accurately reflect future volatility and market conditions. The value of an investment in the fund can go up or down. When you sell your units they may be worth less than you paid for them. The risk/reward rating above is based on medium-term volatility. In the future, the fund s actual volatility could be higher or lower and its rated risk/reward level could change. The lowest category does not mean risk free. The fund s risk level reflects the following: As a category shares are, in general, more volatile than either bonds or money market instruments. The fund focuses on a single country. Fluctuations in exchange rates may cause the value of your investment to rise or fall. The rating does not reflect the possible effects of unusual market conditions or large unpredictable events which could amplify everyday risk and trigger other risks. There have been no changes to the risk rating in the year. The SRRI conforms to the ESMA guidelines for the calculation of the SRRI. 8 Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust

25 Statement of Authorised Fund Manager s responsibilities of Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust (the fund ) for the year ended 31 August 2015 The Financial Conduct Authority s Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook requires the Authorised Fund Manager to prepare financial statements for each annual accounting period which give a true and fair view, in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice, of the financial affairs of the fund and of its revenue for the year. In preparing the financial statements the Authorised Fund Manager is required to: select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently; comply with the requirements of the Statement of Recommended Practice for Authorised Funds issued by the Investment Management Association (IMA) in October 2010; follow generally accepted accounting principles and applicable accounting standards; keep proper accounting records which enable it to demonstrate that the financial statements, as prepared, comply with the above requirements; make judgements and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; and prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the fund will continue in operation for the foreseeable future. The Authorised Fund Manager is responsible for the management of the fund in accordance with its Trust Deed, Prospectus and the Regulations. The Authorised Fund Manager is also responsible for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities. Statement of Trustee s responsibilities and report of the Trustee to the unitholders of the Henderson UK Enhanced Equity Trust (the Scheme ) for the year ended 31 August 2015 The Trustee is responsible for the safekeeping of all the property of the Scheme (other than tangible moveable property) which is entrusted to it and for all the collection of income that arises from that property. It is the duty of the Trustee to take reasonable care to ensure that the Scheme is managed in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority s Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook ( the Regulations ), the Scheme s Trust Deed and Prospectus, in relation to the pricing of, and dealings in, units in the Scheme; the application of income of the Scheme; and the investment and borrowing powers applicable to the Scheme. Having carried out such procedures as we considered necessary to discharge our responsibilities as Trustee of the Scheme, it is our opinion, based on the information available to us and the explanations provided, that, in all material aspects, the Scheme, acting through the Manager: (i) has carried out the issue, sale, redemption and cancellation, and calculation of the price of the Scheme s units and the application of the Scheme s income in accordance with the COLL, the Trust Deed and Prospectus, and (ii) has observed the investment and borrowing powers and restrictions applicable to the Scheme.

26 Independent Auditors report to the unitholders of Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust (the fund ) for the year ended 31 August 2015 Our opinion In our opinion the financial statements, defined below: give a true and fair view of the financial position of the fund as at 31 August 2015 and of the net revenue and the net capital losses of the scheme property of the fund for the year then ended; and have been properly prepared in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice, the Statement of Recommended Practice for Authorised Funds, the Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook and the Trust Deed. This opinion is to be read in the context of what we say in the remainder of this report. What we have audited The financial statements of Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust (the fund ), which are prepared by Henderson Investment Funds Limited (the Authorised Fund Manager ), comprise: the balance sheet of the fund as at 31 August 2015; the statement of total return of the fund for the year then ended; the statement of change in net assets attributable to unitholders of the fund for the year then ended; the notes to the fund s financial statements, which include a summary of significant accounting policies and other explanatory information; and the distribution tables. The financial reporting framework that has been applied in their preparation is applicable law and United Kingdom Accounting Standards (United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice), the Statement of Recommended Practice Financial Statements of Authorised Funds issued by the Investment Management Association (the Statement of Recommended Practice for Authorised Funds ), the Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook and the Trust Deed. In applying the financial reporting framework, the Authorised Fund Manager has made a number of subjective judgements, for example in respect of significant accounting estimates. In making such estimates, they have made assumptions and considered future events. What an audit of financial statements involves We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) ( ISAs (UK & Ireland) ). An audit involves obtaining evidence about the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements sufficient to give reasonable assurance that the financial statements are free from material misstatement, whether caused by fraud or error. This includes an assessment of: whether the accounting policies are appropriate to the fund s circumstances and have been consistently applied and adequately disclosed; the reasonableness of significant accounting estimates made by the Authorised Fund Manager; and the overall presentation of the financial statements. In addition, we read all the financial and non-financial information in the Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust Annual Report & Accounts (the Annual Report ) to identify material inconsistencies with the audited financial statements and to identify any information that is apparently materially incorrect based on, or materially inconsistent with, the knowledge acquired by us in the course of performing the audit. If we become aware of any apparent material misstatements or inconsistencies we consider the implications for our report. Opinions on matters prescribed by the Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook In our opinion: we have obtained all the information and explanations we consider necessary for the purposes of the audit; and the information given in the Authorised Fund Manager s report for the financial year for which the financial statements are prepared is consistent with the financial statements. 22 Henderson Institutional UK Enhanced Equity Trust
