3 Introduction ChariTrak Common Investment Fund (the Fund ), is constituted with a manager and an independent trustee under a scheme, which was established under section 24 of the Charities Act 1993 (the Scheme ). The Charities Act 1993 was superseded by the Charities Act 2011 on 14 March The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013 On 1 May 2014 BlackRock Fund Managers Limited (the Manager ) was authorised as an alternative investment fund manager by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom ( FCA ) pursuant to the requirements of The Alternative Investment Fund Managers Regulations 2013 (the Regulations ). As such, the Manager is authorised to manage and market the Fund, which is an alternative investment fund, in accordance with the Regulations and the FCA handbook of rules and guidance. The Scheme Particulars and the governing document of the Fund were updated with effect from 1 May 2014 to address various requirements of the Regulations and associated laws. Trustee and Custodian The trustee of the Fund is BNY Mellon Trust & Depositary (UK) Limited (the Trustee ), a subsidiary of The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation. It is responsible for certain aspects of the management and administration of the Fund and its property (as further detailed in the Scheme). To the extent of its duties and powers, the Trustee is a charity trustee of the Fund within the meaning of the Charities Act The Trustee has delegated the function of the custodian of the property of the Fund to The Bank of New York Mellon (International) Limited. Corporate Governance The Manager is responsible for the management and administration of the Fund and its property (as further detailed in the Scheme) except to the extent that such responsibilities are those of the Trustee. The Manager has appointed BlackRock Advisors (UK) Limited, to provide discretionary investment management services to the Fund (the Investment Manager ).

4 Introduction continued Common Investment Funds The Fund is a Common Investment Fund established and registered with the Charity Commission for England and Wales. Pursuant to the Charities Act 2011, charities established and registered in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland may invest in the Fund. Subject to any restrictions in the terms of a Common Investment Fund, or that may apply to an eligible charity, the trustees of any charity, large or small, may contribute the whole or any part of their investment property to it at any time. The Fund should not be regarded as a short term investment. Charity Trustees Investment Responsibilities The Charity Commission requires charities to invest their assets only in investments authorised under the governing document of their charity or the Trustee Act 2000 if applicable. Charities are also required to avoid speculation and to invest prudently in order to achieve both income and/or capital growth. Furthermore, charities are required to seek regular professional advice regarding their investments. 3 ChariTrak Common Investment Fund

5 Investment Objective and Policy The investment objective of the Fund is to provide tax-exempt charity investors in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland with returns (income and capital growth) of the UK equity market in line with a fixed benchmark, namely the FTSE All-Share Index (the Benchmark Index ). The Manager may invest the property of the Fund at its discretion in any kind of investment which it could make if it were absolutely entitled to the property of the Fund. The Fund aims to fully replicate the Benchmark Index, holding stocks in the same proportion as they appear in the Benchmark Index. However, the Fund may employ optimisation techniques in order to assist it in tracking its benchmark. The Fund will follow a risk-sensitive, index equity investment strategy, requiring it to hold a broadly diversified range of stocks, in order to reduce the risk of poor stock selection. The Fund may also invest in collective investment schemes in accordance with the restrictions set out in the Scheme. The Fund may invest in securities that are, or could be, subject to stabilisation. Stabilisation is the process by which the price of a security is temporarily supported during an issue to ensure that the introduction of the new security to the market occurs in an orderly fashion. The Fund may invest in securities in which an issue or offer for sale was underwritten, managed or arranged by an associate of the Manager during the preceding 12 months. The Manager may enter into stocklending transactions on behalf of the Fund. The Manager may enter into contracts in respect of FTSE 100 futures in the following circumstances: `` As a way of managing risk in respect of new money entering the Fund before it is invested in the market. `` As a way of managing risk in respect of money exiting the Fund via redemptions of units if the Manager decides it is in the interests of the Fund to sell in the market ahead of the settlement date for the redemption. `` As a hedge for income monies received by the Fund prior to being distributed to unitholders. `` As a way to efficiently manage constituent changes in the benchmark index, allowing the Manager some flexibility in the way that such constituent changes are effected. `` For efficient portfolio management. In all of the cases above, the total exposure to FTSE futures will be as nearly as possible equal to the cash amount being hedged so as to ensure that the transaction is economically appropriate as defined in paragraph 4.1 of Operational Guidance 86 B1 issued by the Commission and to ensure that derivative transactions entered into by the Fund are always fully covered. 4

6 Investment Objective and Policy continued Subject to the above, except with the prior written approval of the Commission, the Manager shall not: `` engage in the business of underwriting or sub-underwriting any new issue of shares, stock or other securities; or `` enter into any futures contracts to acquire or dispose of property; or `` purchase warrants or options to acquire or dispose of property. The Manager may borrow money temporarily for the use of the Fund (including, without limitation, for settlement purposes) on terms that the borrowing is to be repaid out of the property of the Fund, provided that the Manager shall not borrow for the purpose of making investments. Except with the prior approval of the Commission, any borrowing shall not exceed 10% of the value of the property of the Fund on any Business Day. The property of the Fund may include cash or near cash where this may reasonably be regarded as necessary in order to facilitate the cancellation of units, or to further the efficient management of the Fund, or otherwise to enable the Manager to discharge its functions under the Scheme. 5 ChariTrak Common Investment Fund

10 Investment Report Summary of Performance over the Period Over the period to 12 October 2014 the Fund returned 1.0%*. The FTSE All-Share Index return for the same period was 1.2%. Fund performance is measured on a net basis. Fund performance is net of management fees, ongoing charges, and VAT, resulting in underperformance versus a gross benchmark. The structural nature of this effect results in relative underperformance through time. Fund Manager s Commentary UK equity markets moved lower over the period, with initial market rallies cancelled out by falling markets in the second half. The UK economy provided a notable success story over the second quarter of 2014, with most economic data continuing to improve. Data indicated that the UK was moving to a balanced economy with expansion in industrial production, manufacturing and construction. The services sector, the biggest component of the UK economy, saw a rise in output of 0.9% with most of that growth coming from finance and business services. Industrial production rose by 3.0% year on year, while construction output was up 4.6% from On the high street, retail sales increased by their strongest margin in 10 years, while in the housing market, extremely strong price growth gave rise to concerns about overheating. This widespread increase in activity was reflected in the jobs market and unemployment fell to its lowest level in five years. July was a landmark month in the UK, when the size of its economy returned to pre-crisis levels. With second quarter growth of 0.8%, the country s Gross Domestic Product registered at billion according to the Office for National Statistics. Indeed, the UK economy is now the developed world s fastest-growing economy with the International Monetary Fund estimating that it could expand by 3.2% in In August the Bank of England (BoE) increased its growth estimate for 2014 from 3.4% to 3.5%. At the same time, it halved its forecast for wage growth, predicting that salaries will rise by just 1.25% in Against this mixed backdrop, two members of the Monetary Policy Committee still voted to raise interest rates. Meanwhile, it appeared increasingly possible that Scottish voters would approve a referendum for the region s independence from the UK. This unnerved investors as such an event would present a multitude of implications for the UK economy and the conservative party, and had the potential to impact future BoE policy decisions as well as the country s European Union membership referendum slated for Ultimately, Scotland opted to remain part of the UK and this news, along with a record $21.8 billion initial public offering by Chinese e-commerce firm Alibaba, gave equities a quick boost. However, the markets resumed their slide as sentiment was dampened by looming concerns about stretched valuations and rising volatility amid lingering global threats. The portfolio remains positioned so that the risk characteristics are similar to those of the FTSE All- Share Index. October 2014 * Performance figures quoted are based on closing bid-to-bid prices with gross income reinvested. Performance is calculated net of fees and reported for the Fund s class A Accumulation Units. 9 ChariTrak Common Investment Fund
