The U.S. Quant Fund to achieve capital appreciation The U.S. Value Fund to achieve capital appreciation. The World Equity Fund to achieve capital appreciation. Investment Policy: The investment policy of each Fund is set out below: The Emerging Markets Extended Opportunities Fund The Fund s portfolio shall be predominantly (at least two-thirds of its total assets) comprised of Equities and Equity-Related Instruments that are issued by or in respect of companies that: (i) have their registered office in an Emerging Market; or (ii) exercise the predominant part of their economic activity in Emerging Markets ( Emerging Market Companies ). The Equities and Equity-Related Instruments issued by Emerging Market Companies in which the Fund invests shall be listed, traded or dealt on Regulated Markets. Any part of the Fund that is not invested in Equities and Equity-Related Instruments issued by Emerging Market Companies may be invested in other Equities and Equity- Related Instruments listed, traded or dealt in on Regulated Markets, Fixed Income Securities and Instruments, collective investment schemes, Short-Term Instruments, unlisted securities, convertible debt securities in accordance with the investment strategies and restrictions set out in the Prospectus. The Fund may employ investment techniques and financial derivative instruments for efficient portfolio management and/or investment purposes within the limits set out in the Prospectus. The Fund will monitor its use of financial derivative instruments. The level of leverage is expected to be 25% of the Fund s Net Asset Value at any point in time. It is possible that there may be higher leverage level of 50% of the Fund s Net Asset Value during abnormal market conditions and, for example, where there is low volatility generally. Both the expected and higher level of leverage figures are calculated as the sum of the absolute value of notionals of the derivatives used as is required by the Regulations. The Fund may invest no more than 10% of its total assets in Fixed Income Securities and Instruments that are below investment grade and no more than 10% of its total assets in units or shares of open-ended collective investment schemes. The Fund may engage in stock lending at the direction of the Manager provided that such stock lending is conducted with the limits specified by the Central Bank as currently set out in Prospectus. The Fund will invest more than 20% of its total assets in Emerging Markets (and up to 20% of its total assets in Regulated Markets in Russia). Accordingly, an investment in the Fund should not constitute a substantial proportion of an investment portfolio and may not be appropriate for all investors. Please refer to the risk factors set out in the section of the Prospectus titled Risk Factors. The Euro Fixed Income Fund The Fund will invest primarily in Euro denominated transferable debt instruments 2

3 which include, but are not limited to, municipal and government bonds, agency debt (being that issued by local authorities or public international bodies of which one or more States is a member), mortgage related debt and corporate debt that are listed, traded or dealt in on a Regulated Market in the OECD and which may have fixed or floating interest rates.

No more than one third of the assets of the Fund will be invested in money market instruments including, but not limited to, T-bills, certificates of deposit, commercial paper, banker s acceptances and letters of credit, whose maturity or interest rate reset period does not exceed 397 days. The Fund will not purchase equity securities but may hold them if they are acquired through a restructuring of a company s debt instruments that are already held by the Fund. Investors should note that the Fund may also invest in transferable debt instruments with non-investment grade ratings or in unrated instruments which are deemed to be of comparable quality. The Fund will not invest more than 30%. of its assets in noninvestment grade instruments.

The U.K. Equity Plus Fund The Fund will invest in a portfolio of predominantly U.K. equities traded on U.K. stock exchanges, including convertibles, warrants, money market instruments, deposits and collective investment schemes.

Money market instruments may include but are not limited to commercial paper issued by corporate entities; certificates of deposit; bankers acceptances; Treasury bills; short corporate bonds (securities with less than one year to maturity); money market funds. The investments will be selected with a view to achieving the Fund s objective of providing total returns and focussed stock selection. In addition to investing in the foregoing instruments, the Fund may also invest up to 30%. of its net assets in non-u.k. equities. The Fund may also invest in new issues for which application for listing on a Regulated Market will be sought. Investment in money market instruments will not exceed 20%. of the net assets of the Fund. Investment in collective investment schemes will not exceed 10%. of the net assets of the Fund.

The Fund may also hold such securities of companies that are not incorporated, listed or traded in the U.S. but which receive the majority of their total revenue from the U.S. At all times, at least two-thirds of the Fund s net assets will be invested in the foregoing instruments (excluding convertibles) of issuers domiciled in the U.S. The Fund will be diversified and will pursue a policy of active stock selection with an emphasis on stocks with above average earnings growth and favourable earnings momentum. The U.S. Quant Fund The Fund will invest primarily in U.S. equity securities, including common stock, American depositary receipts, global depositary receipts, convertibles and warrants listed, traded or dealt in on a Regulated Market in the U.S. The Fund will seek to achieve its investment objective by investing in derivative instruments that have as their underlying exposure the foregoing (e.g. swaps and contracts for differences) and may implement bought (long) and synthetic short (sold) positions through the use of derivatives. The Fund may invest in new issues for which application for listing on a Regulated Market will be sought. The Fund may also hold securities of such companies that are not incorporated, listed or traded in the U.S. but which receive the majority of their total revenue from the U.S. At all times, at least twothirds of the Fund s net assets will be invested in the foregoing instruments (excluding convertibles) of issuers domiciled in the U.S. The Fund will be highly diversified and, therefore, will not be concentrating on any specific industry sectors but will pursue a policy of active stock selection in the markets, with an emphasis on quantitative methods of security selection and/or portfolio construction.

The World Equity Fund The Fund will invest predominantly in equity securities, including common stock, convertibles and warrants, listed, traded or dealt in on any Regulated Market worldwide. The Fund may also invest in new issues for which application for listing on a Regulated Market will be sought in accordance with Section 2.2 of Schedule VI of the Prospectus entitled Investment Restrictions. The Fund may hold not more than 20%. of its net assets in equity securities of companies whose securities are listed, traded or dealt in on any Regulated Market in the Emerging Markets. The World Equity Fund will not be concentrating on any specific markets or industry sectors but will pursue a policy of active stock, sector and country allocation on the Regulated Markets in which it invests. 5

6 General Each Fund may employ investment techniques and financial derivative instruments for efficient portfolio management and/or investment purposes within the limits set forth in Schedule VII of the Prospectus as described in the section of the Prospectus entitled Investment Techniques and Financial Derivative Instruments. Risk Profile: The following risk factors apply to the Funds: The value of an investment in a Fund may fall as well as rise. There can be no assurance that each Fund will achieve its investment objective or that a Shareholder will recover the full amount invested in each Fund. Prices of equities fluctuate daily dependent on market conditions. Markets can be influenced by a series of factors such as political and economic news, corporate earnings reports, demographic trends, catastrophic events and wider market expectations. It is worth noting that the value of equities can fall as well as rise and investors into equities funds may not get back the amount that was originally invested. Potentially a Fund investing in equities could incur significant losses. Below investment grade debt securities are speculative and involve a greater risk of default and price changes due to changes in the issuer s creditworthiness. The market prices of these debt securities fluctuate more than investment grade debt securities and may decline significantly in periods of general economic difficulty. The market for such securities may not be liquid at all times. In a relatively illiquid market a Fund may not be able to acquire or dispose of such securities quickly and as such a Fund may experience adverse price movements upon liquidation of its investments. Settlement of transactions may also be subject to delay and administrative uncertainties. Each Fund will be exposed to a credit risk on parties with whom it trades and will also bear the risk of settlement default. The Company s investments may be acquired in a wide range of currencies and changes in exchange rates between currencies may cause the value of an investment in the Company to fluctuate. There can be no assurance that should an action be brought against the Company in the courts of another jurisdiction, the segregated nature of the Funds would necessarily be upheld. Financial derivative instruments ( FDI ) involve risks different from and in certain cases greater than, the risks presented by more traditional investments. Each Fund may enter transactions in OTC markets that expose it to the credit of its counterparties and their ability to satisfy the terms of such contracts. Since many FDIs have a leverage component, adverse changes in the value or level of the underlying asset, rate or index can result in a loss substantially greater than the amount invested in the derivative itself. Certain FDIs have the potential for unlimited loss regardless of the size of the initial investment. The Funds may from time to time use both exchange-traded and over the counter futures and options as part of its investment policy or for hedging purposes. These instruments are highly volatile, involve certain special risks and expose investors to a high risk of loss. The low initial margin deposits normally required to establish a futures position permit a high degree of leverage. As a result, a relatively small movement in the price of a futures contract may result in a profit or a loss which is 6

7 high in proportion to the amount of funds actually placed as initial margin and may result in un-quantifiable further loss exceeding any margin deposited. As this is a multi-manager scheme, accordingly investment management of each Fund will be carried out by a number of Money Managers each managing separate portfolios of assets within the Fund. It is therefore possible that performance fees in respect of the performance achieved by one or more of those Money Managers may be payable by the Fund to one or more of the Money Managers even though the overall Net Asset Value of the Fund, representing the aggregate performance of all the Money Managers, may not have increased. There is a risk that the accrual of performance fees in the Fund may not be entirely equitable between different Shareholders. A portion of the assets of a Fund, particularly The Emerging Markets Extended Opportunities Fund, The World Equity Fund and The Global Bond (Euro Hedged) Fund, may be invested in emerging markets. Emerging Markets are typically those of less developed countries which exhibit lower levels of economic and/or capital market development, and higher levels of share price and currency volatility. The risks involved in emerging market investment are likely to exceed the risks of investment in more mature markets. Funds that have significant exposures to Emerging Markets may only be suitable for well informed investors. A Fund may lend its portfolio securities to broker-dealers and banks in order to generate additional income for that Fund. In the event of bankruptcy or other default of a borrower of portfolio securities a Fund could experience both delays in liquidating the loan collateral or recovering the loaned securities and losses. A more detailed description of the risk factors that apply to the Funds is set out in the Prospectus. Performance Data: Profile of a Typical Investor: Performance data for each Fund is set out in Appendix 1 to this Simplified Prospectus. The following table sets out the suitability of each Fund for investors, by stating: (i) what type of return the investor should seek to achieve by investing in each Fund; (ii) over what time period the investor should invest in the Fund for; and (iii) the level of volatility an investor should be prepared to accept. Fund: Suitable for investors seeking: Over a time horizon of: Level of volatility: Growth Income The Emerging Markets Extended - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High Opportunities Fund The Euro Fixed Income Fund 5 to 7 years Moderate The Global Bond (Euro Hedged) - 5 to 7 years Moderate Fund The Pan European Equity Fund - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High The U.K. Equity Plus Fund - 5 to 7 years High The U.S. Equity Plus Fund - 5 to 7 years High The U.S. Growth Fund - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High The U.S. Quant Fund - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High 7

8 The U.S. Value Fund - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High The World Equity Fund - 5 to 7 years Moderate - High Distribution Policy: Each of the Funds may issue Income Class Shares, Accumulation Class Shares or Roll-Up Class Shares. All Share Classes are Accumulation Class Shares unless otherwise indicated in the name of the Share Class. Income Class Shares are shares that distribute net income from time to time, subject to Directors discretion on the Distribution Date. The amount of any distribution on different Classes of Income Class Shares in a Fund may vary to reflect any differing charges and expenses suffered by such Share Classes. Any such distribution shall be made from net income. Accumulation Class Shares are shares that declare a distribution but whose net income is then reinvested in the capital of the relevant Fund on the Distribution Date, thereby increasing the Net Asset Value per Share for an Accumulation Class Share relative to an Income Class Share. Roll-Up Class Shares do not declare or distribute net income and the Net Asset Value therefore reflects net income. Fees And Expenses: The following fees and expenses will be borne by the Company (expressed as a maximum annual percentage of average daily Net Asset Value, except as otherwise noted) which fees shall accrue daily and be paid monthly in arrears: Manager fees Please note that the maximum management fee for any Fund is 2.50%. per annum of the Net Asset Value of the relevant Fund excluding any Performance Fee to be paid to the Manager as described below. The Manager shall discharge all fees payable to the Adviser and Distributor out of its management fee. The Adviser and Distributor shall discharge all fees payable to the Money Managers. Performance Fees With the exception of The Euro Fixed Income Fund, a performance fee (the Performance Fee ) may be payable to the Manager in respect of each Fund on an annual basis (the Performance Period ) that is equal to the sum of Performance Fees to be paid to the Fund s Money Managers as described more fully below. Any Performance Fee paid to the Manager shall be paid in its entirety to the Adviser and Distributor, which in turn shall pay the entire Performance Fee to those Money Managers for the Fund that are entitled to a Performance Fee. A Performance Fee is payable to a Money Manager only with respect to the value added for that part of a Fund (the Portfolio ) for which that Money Manager is responsible from the time the Adviser and Distributor appoints that Money Manager to manage the Portfolio until such time, if ever, that the Money Manager ceases to manage the Portfolio (the Term of Appointment ). Administrator, Custodian and Trustee and Paying Agent fees The Company shall pay the fees of the Administrator and the Custodian and Trustee and all of the reasonable out of pocket expenses properly incurred by them. All transactions fees payable to the Custodian and Trustee and the sub-custodians (which shall be charged at normal commercial rates) shall be paid by the Company. The Company shall reimburse the Custodian and Trustee for reasonable fees paid to 8

9 any sub-custodian. In relation to The Emerging Markets Extended Opportunities Fund, fees payable to sub-custodians are not included in the percentage cap set out in the table below under the heading Aggregate Administration, Custodian and Trusteeship Fees as a percentage of NAV per annum. Out of pocket expenses of the Administrator and the Custodian and Trustee may be paid by the Funds. The Company will pay Marcard, Stein & Co AG, Deutsche Bank AG, Amsterdam Branch, BNP Paribas Securities Services, Milan Branch, UniCredit Bank Austria AG, SGSS S.p.A. and Société Générale fees for various services as paying agent, information agent, correspondence agent and representative as detailed in the Prospectus.
