The termination of the Alliance Trust Asia- Pacific Equity Fund, the Alliance Trust Japan Equity Fund and the Alliance Trust UK Equity Fund was completed during the period. The Alliance Trust European Equity Fund and the Alliance Trust North American Equity Fund commenced termination during Q and it is anticipated that the termination of these sub-funds will be completed during Q The Company is a UCITS scheme which complies with the FCA s Collective Investment Schemes Sourcebook and is structured as an umbrella company so that different sub-funds may be established from time to time by the ACD with the approval of the FCA and the agreement of the Depositary. Changes to the Prospectus during the period During the period to 31 December 2013, changes were made to the Company and therefore the following changes were reflected in the Prospectus and/or Instrument of Incorporation of the Company. Classification of Changes As agreed with the Depositary and, where relevant approved by the FCA, the changes made were not deemed to be significant in the context of the FCA Rules and, as such, are being notified, post event, in this Report & Accounts. Details of the Changes From 1 April 2013 the Company and the ACD are authorised and regulated by the FCA. As the end of the accounting period was after this date all references to the predecessor of the FCA, the FSA have been replaced; Changes have been made to the Prospectus of the Company to reflect the coming into effect of guidelines on ETFs and other UCITS issues published by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) on 17 December 2012 (ref: ESMA/2012/832) which came into effect on 18 February These guidelines introduced increased disclosure requirements for investors in UCITS schemes in relation to exposure obtained through financial derivative instruments and efficient portfolio management techniques and in the case of funds which are deemed for the purposes of the ESMA guidelines to be Index Tracking UCITS, further disclosure regarding the index being tracked by the fund and the fund s strategy along with measurement of tracking the particular index. Following FCA approval, with effect from 20 December 2013, the Company took on Protected Cell status and the Company s Prospectus and Instrument of Incorporation were amended accordingly. From this date the new segregated liability regime took effect and the sub-funds are regarded as a segregated

4 Alliance Trust Investment Funds ICVC 2 portfolio of assets, with the assets of a sub-fund belonging exclusively to that sub-fund. The assets of a sub-fund shall not be used or made available to discharge (directly or indirectly) the liabilities of, or claims against, any other person or body, including the Company and any other sub-fund, and shall not be available for any such purpose. The conversion to Protected Cell status also means that sub-funds within the Company may invest in other sub-funds within the Company, subject to certain qualifications. Changes to the investment objective of the Alliance Trust Dynamic Bond Fund Recent changes to the FCA s Handbook require funds that indicate in their name, investment objectives or fund literature, through use of descriptions such as absolute return, total return or similar, an intention to deliver positive returns in all market conditions (and where there is no actual guarantee of such returns), to make additional statements in the fund s investment objectives specifying: (i) that capital is in fact at risk; (ii) the investment period over which the authorised fund aims to achieve a positive return; and (iii) there is no guarantee that this will be achieved over that specific, or any, time period; Accordingly, in accordance with of rule 4.2.5(3)(ca) of the FCA s Collective Investment Schemes Sourcebook ( COLL ), amendments have been made to the investment objective of the Alliance Trust Dynamic Bond Fund to reflect these changes. The original investment objective was as follows: Original Objective The Fund aims to provide a positive absolute return over 12 month rolling periods whilst seeking to provide an annualised total return (a combination of growth and income) of 6% over three year rolling periods. For the avoidance of doubt, the Fund does not offer any form of guarantee with respect to investment performance and no form of capital protection will apply. The amended investment objective is as follows: Amended Objective The Fund aims to provide a positive absolute return over 12 month rolling periods whilst seeking to provide an annualised total return (a combination of growth and income) of 6% over three year rolling periods. For the avoidance of doubt, the Fund does not offer any form of guarantee with respect to investment performance over any time period. No form of capital protection will apply and capital is therefore at risk. There has been no change to the investment strategy of the sub-fund. The change is considered to be a clarification of the existing strategy. Class P shares Performance Fee At the request of the Depositary, the description of the performance fee calculation in Appendix B of the Prospectus was amended to clarify that, in calculating the performance fee, the distributable income which is to be added back to the NAV includes any tax which may have been withheld on that distributable income. This is a change in wording only and not a change in the method of calculation of the performance fee. Updates to performance, dilution adjustment and SDRT details Performance figures, dilution adjustment and SDRT details have been updated for each of the sub-funds. A copy of the Prospectus is available on request from the ACD. Statement of the Authorised Corporate Director s Responsibilities The Authorised Corporate Director ( ACD ) of Alliance Trust Investment Funds ICVC ( Company ) is responsible for preparing the Annual Report and the financial statements in accordance with the Open-Ended Investment Companies Regulations 2001 ( the OEIC Regulations ), the Financial Conduct Authority s Collective Investment Schemes Sourcebook ( COLL ) and the Company s Instrument of Incorporation. The OEIC Regulations and COLL require the ACD to prepare financial statements for each annual accounting period which: are in accordance with United Kingdom Generally Accepted Accounting Practice ( United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law ) and the Statement of Recommended Practice: Financial Statements of Authorised Funds issued by the Investment Management Association ( IMA SORP ) in October 2010; and give a true and fair view of the financial position of the Company and each of its sub-funds as at the end of that period and the net revenue and the net capital gains on the property of the Company and each of its sub-funds for that period. In preparing the financial statements, the ACD is required to: select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently; make judgments and estimates that are reasonable and prudent; state whether applicable UK Accounting Standards, applicable law and the IMA SORP have been followed, subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements; and prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Company will continue in operation.

5 Report & Accounts December The ACD is responsible for keeping proper accounting records that disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company and enable it to ensure that the financial statements comply with the applicable IMA SORP and United Kingdom Accounting Standards and applicable law. The ACD is also responsible for the system of internal controls, for safeguarding the assets of the Company and for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities. In accordance with COLL 4.5.8BR, the Annual Report and the audited financial statements were approved by the board of directors of the ACD of the Company and authorised for issue on 29 April Report of the ACD to the Shareholders of the Company The ACD, as sole director, presents its report and the audited financial statements of the Company for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31 December The Company is a UCITS scheme which complies with the FCA s Collective Investment Schemes sourcebook. The shareholders are not liable for the debts of the Company. The investment objectives and policies of each sub-fund of the Company are covered in the section for each sub-fund. The names and addresses of the ACD, the Depositary and the Auditor are detailed on page 1. The Protected Cell Regime ( PCR ) for OEICs in the UK is now in place following the approval of the Open-Ended Investment Companies (Amendment) Regulations 2011 by Parliament on 21 December Under the PCR, the assets of a sub-fund of an umbrella OEIC belong exclusively to that sub-fund and are not available to discharge the liabilities of any other sub-fund or any claim against the umbrella OEIC. The company completed its conversion in December In the future there may be other sub-funds of the Company. The ACD is of the opinion that it is appropriate to continue to adopt the going concern basis in the preparation of the financial statements as the assets of the sub-funds consist predominantly of securities that are readily realisable and, accordingly, the sub-funds have adequate financial resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future. Statement of the Depositary s responsibilities and report of the Depositary to the shareholders of Alliance Trust Investment Funds ICVC ( the Company ) for the period ended 31 December The Depositary is responsible for the safekeeping of all of the property of the Company (other than tangible moveable property) which is entrusted to it and for the collection of revenue that arises from that property. It is the duty of the Depositary to take reasonable care to ensure that the Company is managed in accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority s Collective Investment Schemes Sourcebook ( COLL ), as amended, the Open-Ended Investment Companies Regulations 2001 (SI 2001/1228), as amended ( the OEIC Regulations ), the Company s Instrument of Incorporation and Prospectus, in relation to the pricing of, and dealings in, shares in the Company; the application of the revenue of the Company; and the investment and borrowing powers applicable to the Company. Report of the depositary to the shareholders of the company Having carried out such procedures as we considered necessary to discharge our responsibilities as depositary of the company, it is our opinion, based on the information available to us and the explanations provided, that in all material respects the Company, acting through the Authorised Corporate Director: i) has carried out the issue, sale, redemption, cancellation and calculation of the price of the Company s shares and the application of the Company s revenue, in accordance with COLL and, where applicable, the OEIC Regulations, the Instrument of Incorporation and the Prospectus of the Company; and ii) has observed the investment and borrowing powers and restrictions applicable to the Company. For and on behalf of National Westminster Bank plc 29 April Directors Statement In accordance with the Regulations, we hereby certify the report on behalf of the directors of Alliance Trust Investments Limited.

8 Alliance Trust Investment Funds ICVC 6 Notes to the aggregated financial statements for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31 December Accounting policies a) Basis of accounting The Financial Statements have been prepared under the historical cost basis, as modified by the revaluation of investments, and in accordance with the Statement of Recommended Practice of Financial Statements of Authorised Funds ( IMA SORP ) issued by the Investment Management Assocation (IMA) in October As described in the Statement of Authorised Corporate Director s (ACD) Responsibilities on page 2, the ACD continues to adopt the going concern basis in preparation of the Financial statements. The ACD has considered the impact of the closure of the Alliance Trust European Equity and Alliance Trust North American Equity Funds and has determined that these closures do not have an impact on the going concern assessment of the company s financial statements. b) Aggregated accounts The aggregated accounts represent the sum of the individual Funds within the umbrella company. Further analysis of the distributions per share and the net asset positions can be found within the financial statements of the individual Funds. c) Valuation of investments The valuation of the Funds listed investments is based on the bid-market prices, excluding any accrued interest in the case of debt securities, at the close of business on the last day of the accounting period on 31 December 2013, in accordance with the provisions of the Prospectus. Unquoted securities are valued by the Authorised Corporate Director ( ACD ) on a net realisable value basis taking into account, where appropriate, latest dealing prices, valuations from reliable sources, financial performance and other relevant factors. For Collective Investment Schemes managed by other management groups, investments are valued at the bid price for dual priced Funds and at the single price for single priced Funds. Valuations should take into account any agreed rate of redemption charge. d) Revenue Dividends on quoted ordinary shares and preference shares are recognised when the securities are first quoted ex-dividend. Revenue from unquoted equity investments is recognised when the entitlement to the dividend is established. In compliance with FRS 16 Current Tax, dividend revenue is shown net of any tax credits. Any entitlement to a repayment of tax credits is shown as a deduction from the tax charge rather than as dividend revenue. Dividends and witholding tax recoverable from overseas authorities are treated as receivable on the date on which the security is quoted ex-dividend where the amounts can be reasonably determined. Foreign dividends are grossed up at the appropriate rate of tax. Revenue from fixed rate securities and bank deposits is recognised on an effective interest rate basis. Accrued interest purchased and sold on interest bearing securities is excluded from the capital cost of these securities and dealt with as part of the revenue of the Fund. Revenue within the financial statements for the Monthly Income Bond Fund has been calculated on an effective yield basis but distributions are based on a coupon basis. Interest included in the value of purchases and sales of debt securities is treated as revenue and forms part of the distribution. Revenue from stock lending activities is accounted for net of management fees and is recognised on an accruals basis. Underwriting commission is generally treated as income. However, where a Fund is required to take up all or a proportion of the shares underwritten, the commission received is treated as a reduction in the cost of the shares received. Furthermore, where a Fund is required to take a proportion of the shares underwritten, the same proportion of the commission received is treated as a reduction in the cost of shares received and the balance is taken to revenue. Distributions from collective investment schemes are recognised as revenue on the date the securities are quoted ex-dividend. Equalisation on distribution from collective investment scheme is deducted from cost of investment and does not form part of the sub-funds distribution. e) Rebates of ACD fees Rebates of ACD fees are recognised on an accrual basis. These rebates are treated as revenue or capital based on the underlying fund s treatment of the ACD fees. f) Stock dividends The ordinary element of a stock dividend is recognised as revenue to the extent that its market value is equivalent to the market value of the underlying shares on the date the shares are quoted ex-dividend. Where an enhancement is offered, the amount by which the market value of the shares (on the date they are quoted ex-dividend) exceeds the cash value of the dividend will be taken to the capital of a Fund. The ordinary element of the stock dividend is treated as revenue and forms part of the distribution. g) Special dividends and share buy backs Special dividends and share buy backs are treated as repayments of capital except where there is sufficient evidence to indicate that they should be treated, in whole or in

9 Report & Accounts December part, as revenue. Amounts recognised as revenue will form part of the distribution. The tax treatment will follow the accounting treatment of the receipt. h) Expenses Expenses are recognised on an accruals basis and are charged against revenue except for Stamp Duty Reserve Tax ( SDRT ) and costs associated with the purchase and sale of investments, which are allocated to the capital of the Fund. For the purposes of determining the distribution, all or part of the ACD s periodic charge may be borne by the capital account of the Fund. Currently only the Monthly Income Bond Fund charges the ACD s periodic charge against capital. In addition to the Annual Management Charge, for certain share classes, the ACD is entitled to a performance related fee of 20% of outperformance of the relevant index by each share class of each sub-fund and is calculated to the end of the accounting period in December each year. The relevant indices can be found in the performance section of the Investment Review for each sub-fund. The full amount of any performance fee is calculated on an accruals basis and is chargeable against capital in determining distribution. Further details of the calculation can be found in the Prospectus. i) Allocation of revenue and expenses to multiple share classes The allocation of revenue and expenses to each share class is based on the proportion of the Fund s assets attributable to each share class on the day the revenue is earned or the expense is incurred. The ACD s periodic charge and registration fees are allocated on a share class specific basis. j) Taxation Corporation tax is charged at 20% of the income liable to corporation tax, less expenses. Deferred tax is provided for at the rate at which taxation is likely to become payable in respect of all timing differences between the accounting and taxation treatment of items. k) Distributions The net revenue available for distribution at the end of each distribution period will be paid as a dividend or interest distribution. Should the expenses of a Fund (including taxation) exceed the revenue of a Fund, there will be no distribution and the shortfall will be set against the capital of a Fund. Any revenue attributable to accumulation shareholders is retained within a Fund at the end of the distribution period and represents a reinvestment of income on behalf of the accumulation shareholders. For the Monthly Income Bond Fund all the interim distributions are based on a fixed rate for each share class and any income available for distribution at the end of the accounting period will be distributed or accumulated. The financial statements have been prepared on an effective yield basis but the Fund distributes on a coupon basis. Where the coupon basis is higher, the additional amount, above that recorded in revenue, is transferred from capital in order to make the distribution. A reconciliation of the net distribution to the net revenue of the fund as reported in the Statement of Total Return is shown in note 6 on page 48. l) Exchange rates Transactions in foreign currencies are translated into Sterling at the rate of exchange ruling on the date of the transaction. Investments and other assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into Sterling at the exchange rates applicable at the end of the accounting period. m) Financial instruments Where appropriate, certain permitted financial instruments such as derivative contracts or forward exchange contracts are used for the purpose of efficient portfolio management. Where such financial instruments are used to protect or enhance revenue, the revenue and expenses derived therefrom are included in Revenue or Expenses in the Statement of Total Return. Where such financial instruments are used to protect or enhance capital, the returns derived there from are included in Net capital gains/(losses) on investments in the Statement of Total Return. Any positions in respect of such instruments open at the year end are reflected in the portfolio statement at their market value. Where positions generate total returns, such returns are apportioned between capital and revenue to properly reflect the nature of the transaction. The amounts held at futures clearing houses in respect of these financial instruments are included in the cash and bank balances and detailed in the Notes to the Financial Statements. Transaction costs associated with derivatives are charged to revenue when incurred. All forward contracts outstanding at financial reporting dates are marked to market. Some of the subfunds may enter into permitted transactions such a derivative contracts or forward currency transactions as outlined in the relevant Investment Objective and Policy of the Fund. Derivative financial instruments are initially recorded at transaction value on the date on which the derivative contract is entered into. All contracts outstanding at the financial reporting date are carried at a value provided by independent pricing providers.

14 Alliance Trust Investment Funds ICVC 12 Alliance Trust North American Equity Fund Alliance Trust North American Equity Fund Report for the period from 1 January 2013 to 31 December 2013 Investment objective and policy The Fund aims to produce long-term total return from investment in a portfolio of companies in any economic sector in the United States and Canada. Holdings are listed on a regulated stock exchange or market in either the United States or Canada. The Fund aims to meet its objective by investing in a concentrated portfolio of North American companies. The portfolio is diversified and unconstrained by reference to North American indices, or by market cap. The manager employs a fundamental, long-term approach to stock selection with a focus on Value/ Growth at a Reasonable Price. Currently, it is intended that the Fund will enter into derivative and forward transactions only for the purposes of efficient portfolio management (including hedging) ( EPM ). The specific aims of EPM are the reduction of risk, the reduction of cost or the generation of additional capital or income with a risk level which is consistent with the risk profile of the Fund and the risk diversification rules laid down in COLL. Investment review As the Fund was closed in the period the following commentary covers the period 1 January 2013 to 30 June There was insufficient investment activity from July onwards to require an update to this commentary. Market review The fund s benchmark index, the MSCI North American index, rose over 15% to the middle of May before the gains were pared to nearly 11% at the end of June Investors enthusiasm for equities seemed to peter out amid concerns that quantitative easing could be withdrawn by the US Federal Reserve earlier than anticipated. The US dollar strengthened against Sterling further boosting investment returns. Portfolio Outlook Following a full review of our fund range after a decision to restructure the Alliance Trust PLC equity portfolio, the Alliance Trust North American Equity Fund commenced termination on 28 June Material Portfolio Changes The fund commenced termination on the 28th of June 2013 and as such sold all holdings in underlying securities. Risk and Reward Profile The Risk and Reward Indicator table demonstrates where the Fund ranks in terms of its potential risk and reward. The higher the rank the greater the potential reward but the greater the risk of losing money. It is based on past data, may change over time and may not be a reliable indication of the future risk profile of the Fund. The shaded area in the table below shows the Fund s ranking on the Risk and Reward Indicator. Typically lower rewards, lower risk Typically higher rewards, higher risk This Fund is ranked at 6 because funds of this type have experienced high rises and falls in value in the past. Please note that even the lowest risk class can lose you money and that extreme market circumstances can mean you suffer severe losses in all cases. The indicator does not take into account the following risks of investing in this fund: By focusing its investments in North America, the fund will have greater exposure to the market, political and economic risks of that region than if it was more diversified across a number of countries. Investing globally can bring additional returns and diversify risk. However, currency exchange rate fluctuations may have a positive or negative impact on the value of your investment. This fund holds a limited number of investments. If one of these investments falls in value this can have a greater impact on the Fund s value than if it held a larger number of investments.
