4 MANAGER S INVESTMENT REPORT Investment objective The investment objective of Liontrust FTSE 100 Tracker Fund is to match the capital performance of the FTSE 100 Index, which comprises the UK s one hundred largest companies. It will be achieved principally by replicating the constituents of the FTSE 100 Index. However, in managing the short-term liquidity of the Fund and its income, the Manager may, from time to time, invest in FTSE 100 Index futures in accordance with the rules of the COLL Sourcebook regarding hedging. Liontrust Asset Management PLC Liontrust, which was launched in 1995, is an independent fund management group whose shares are quoted on the London Stock Exchange. Liontrust manages 3.8 billion (as of 30 September 2014) in UK, European, Asian and Global equities, Global Credit and Multi-Manager Multi-Asset. We take pride in having a distinct culture and approach to asset management. This comes through the following factors: Liontrust is an independent business with no corporate parent. Liontrust specialises in those asset classes where it believes it has particular expertise and fund managers have strong long-term track records rather than try to be all things to all people. Liontrust uses rigorous investment processes that are robust and scaleable to ensure they are capable of delivering superior long-term performance. Using these investment processes ensures the way we manage money is predictable and repeatable. We aim to provide a culture that gives all fund managers the freedom to manage their portfolios according to their own investment processes and market views. We have created an environment in which fund managers can focus on running money and not get distracted by other day-to-day aspects of running a fund management business, particularly administration. We aim to treat clients, investors, members, employees and suppliers fairly and with respect. Therefore, we are committed to the principles of Treating Customers Fairly (TCF) and they are central to how we conduct business across all our functions. Liontrust Asset Management PLC is the parent company of Liontrust Fund Partners LLP and Liontrust Investment Partners LLP, which are authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority. All members of the Liontrust Group sell only Liontrust Group products. Performance of the Fund In the period to 30 November 2014 an investment in the Fund returned -1.1% compared with a return of -0.1% in the FTSE 100 Index. From the Fund s launch on 14 July 1995 to 30 November 2014, an investment in the Fund rose by 237.9%, compared to a rise of 278.0% in the FTSE 100 Index. Source: Financial Express, bid to bid basis, total return. A dividend distribution of 6.11 pence per unit was paid on 31 July The Fund aims to achieve its objective by investing in an optimised portfolio of constituents of the FTSE 100 Index to provide broad exposure to the benchmark whilst minimising costs. The tracking difference (the difference between the performance of the Fund and the performance of the index tracked) for the period to 30 November 2014 is -1.0%. The tracking difference is based on actual portfolio returns calculated at the valuation point (12pm) and the actual benchmark returns calculated at close of business (4.30pm) and also incorporates the effects of Fund expenses, trading activity, using futures for efficient portfolio management and holding cash in the fund over the course of the year. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The value of investments and the income from them can fall as well as rise. 3

5 MANAGER S INVESTMENT REPORT Risk and Reward Profile The Risk disclosures are in accordance with CESR guidelines and are consistent with the rating disclosed in the KIID. Lower Risk Typically lower rewards Higher Risk Typically higher rewards The indicator is based upon historical data and may not be relied upon to gauge the future risk profile of the Fund. The risk and reward indicator shown is not guaranteed and may shift over time. The lowest category (1) does not mean risk free. The Fund s risk and reward category has been calculated using the methodology set by the European Commission. It is based upon the rate by which the Fund s value has moved up and down in the past. The Fund is categorised 6 primarily for its exposure to securities (equity) of UK companies which comprise the FTSE 100 index. The risk and reward indicator does not take into account the following Fund risks: That a company may fail thus reducing its value within the Fund. Any company which has high overseas earnings may carry a higher currency risk as for valuation purposes, local receipts may require conversion into the currency of the Fund, which is pounds sterling. As exchange rates fluctuate the valuation of overseas earnings may have positive and negative effects on the value of the Fund. The Fund may, from time to time, invest in FTSE 100 index futures in order to manage investment flows efficiently. Performance of the FTSE 100 Index In the six months to 30 November 2014 the FTSE 100 index delivered a total return, including dividends, of - 0.1%. In capital terms, the index lost 1.8%, falling 122 points from its starting level of 6,845 points to finish at 6,723. The total return from the FTSE 100 Tracker Fund over the period was -1.1%. Much of the differential between the return from the index and the tracker is explained by their different pricing points: end of day for the index and midday for the tracker. On the final trading day of the period the 28 th November the FTSE 100 rose by about 40 points in the afternoon. This intraday rally is captured in the index return but not the tracker fund, which was valued at midday prior to the rise. The UK equity market struggled for direction over the period as investors dealt with persistent geopolitical risks in Ukraine and the Middle East, the impending end to the US Federal Reserve s ( The Fed ) Quantitative Easing (QE) programme, and an outlook for slowing global growth. The main casualty of the last of these factors was the oil & gas industry. The oil price fell 36% over the six months to $66.2/barrel and FTSE 100 constituents including BP (-13.9%), BG Group (-25.7%), Royal Dutch Shell (-6.4%) and Tullow Oil (-49.2%) fell significantly. Between them, these four companies had a negative effect on the index of about 170 points. Fears over growth were offset by the prospect of more accommodative monetary policy outside of the US. The European Central Bank (ECB) gave a number of indications of its intention to deploy QE measures and the Bank of Japan (BoJ) announced its own surprise increase in its QE programme in October. 4

6 MANAGER S INVESTMENT REPORT The biggest FTSE 100 riser in both percentage and market capitalisation weighted terms was pharmaceutical company Shire (+33.5%). Following a number of indicative offers, it accepted a takeover approach from US peer AbbVie and shares in Shire rose substantially over the six months despite the deal eventually falling through. Friends Life (+20.6%) was another to benefit from merger and acquisition (M&A) activity as it received and recommended a takeover approach from life insurance peer Aviva. Outside of the oil & gas companies, another area of index weakness was the supermarkets sector. Price competition in the sector was fierce as the incumbents including Tesco (-38.1%), J Sainsbury (-31.1%) and WM Morrison (-9.0%) struggled to cope with competition from Aldi and Lidl. Tesco was particularly badly affected, issuing a number of profit warnings, replacing its CEO and announcing some accounting irregularities. The highlights of each month follow: June: The FTSE 100 lost 100 points, or 1.5%, to finish June at 6,744. While the ECB loosened monetary policy, cutting its refinancing rate and deposit rates to 0.15% and -0.10% respectively and offering eurozone banks up to 400bn in cheap loans, Bank of England Governor Mark Carney stated that UK rises could happen sooner than markets currently expect. The UK market reacted negatively to the comments. Banks were among the worst performing stocks. Barclays (-13.8%) was the biggest index faller, closely followed by Standard Chartered (-11.1%), which issued a profit warning in the month. Tensions in Iraq fed through to a firm oil price as Islamist insurgents attacked infrastructure in the north of the country. The oil price rise of 2.5% benefited the oil & gas majors BG (+1.5%), BP (+2.4%) and Royal Dutch Shell (+4.4%). The FTSE 100 s biggest riser in percentage terms was pharmaceutical company Shire (+33.9%). It was revealed that the company had received a number of indicative takeover offers from US peer AbbVie. Shire rejected all the offers. The quarterly review of index constituents resulted in Melrose, a manufacturer of products for utilities, and bookmaker William Hill being replaced by private equity group 3i and Intu Properties, a Real Estate Investment Trust which owns a number of shopping centres. July: Geopolitical risks contributed to another month of negative returns for the index, which fell 14 points to 6,730. A Malaysian airliner was shot down in eastern Ukraine, with pro-russian rebels believed to be culpable. This led to some flight to safety trends as safe haven assets such as government bonds and gold rose, while equities came under pressure amid rising volatility. Russian assets already under pressure due to economic sanctions from the US and Europe suffered large falls. Fears over the health of eurozone periphery nations were also reignited by the emergence of accounting irregularities at Portugal s Banco Espirito Santo which caused its shares to tumble. The Fed continued to taper it QE programme by announcing a further cut in monthly asset purchases to $25bn. It stated that there was still significant underutilisation of labour resources suggesting that interest rate rises were not imminent. Mining companies led the risers in July with Rio Tinto (+9.1%), Glencore (+10.6%), BHP Billiton (+7.4%) and Anglo American (+11.8%) all featuring among the biggest gainers. Economic data from China during the month was strong; for example, the flash estimate of the Purchasing Manager s Index for July was 52, the highest level so far in the year, and ahead of the level (50) that indicates economic expansion. Shares in Shire (+7.0%) rose again after the company received two raised bids from AbbVie and recommended the latter to its shareholders. Tesco shares performed poorly, falling 9.2% as the supermarket sector continued to suffer from intense price competition in an attempt to fend off Aldi and Lidl. Tesco responded by removing its CEO Philip Clarke and announcing the appointment of Unilever executive Dave Lewis. Royal Mail (-13.8%) was also among those to fall after a trading update referred to weak trends in its parcels division due to intensifying competition. 5

7 MANAGER S INVESTMENT REPORT August: Global equity markets made strong gains in August despite the tensions in Ukraine persisting and the progress made by the Islamic State group in the Middle East. Much of the positive mood in markets can be attributed to comments from ECB President Mario Draghi at an economic policy conference in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. He said that all available instruments would be used to offset falling inflation expectations, raising the prospect of QE in continental Europe. The Bank of England (BoE) halved its forecast for 2014 wage growth within its quarterly inflation report to 1.25% but said that growth in the economy is on track. Interest rates were maintained at 0.5% due to insufficient evidence of inflationary pressures but two of the monetary policy committee s nine members voted for a rate rise, a larger minority than had been expected. The FTSE 100 gained 90 points, or 1.3%, to 6,820 as 72 of its constituents experienced gains. The supermarket sector, however, remained weak. Tesco (-10.9%) was the biggest faller in percentage terms and J Sainsbury (- 7.2%) was also among the 10 worst performing stocks. The ONS released data showing July food store spending fell 1.3% year-on-year, the first fall since it began compiling retail sales data in September: Resource-related companies dragged the FTSE % lower in September. The index finished the month down 197 points at 6,623. A lack of confidence in the the outlook for global growth appeared to grow as investors looked beyond the US QE programme, which continued to taper towards its expected termination. BP (-5.9%), BHP Billiton (-8.1%), Royal Dutch Shell (-4.3%) and Rio Tinto (-5.7%) were among those to suffer share price falls. Volatility was accentuated on the UK market by the Scottish independence referendum. The impending vote led to fluctuations in the sterling exchange rate and in the shares of companies with Scottish exposure particularly among the financial sector. Although some polls early in the month had put the yes vote ahead for the first time, the referendum ultimately returned a vote in favour of the better together campaign. The biggest index faller in percentage terms was Tesco (-19.0%). The company announced that it had overstated its interim profit by 250m as it failed to account for supplier rebates correctly. Following the quarterly index review, housebuilder Barratt Developments and drinks can maker Rexam were demoted to the FTSE 250, and replaced by Direct Line Insurance and electricals retailer Dixons Carphone. October: Shares in oil & gas companies came under significant pressure as global growth fears mounted and the oil price slide accelerated. The head of the International Monetary Fund (IMF), Christine Lagarde, warned that the world economy may be facing a new mediocre level of low growth ahead of announcing cuts to the organisation s economic growth forecasts. The International Energy Agency cut its forecast for oil demand growth, citing reduced expectations of economic growth. The oil price fell 12% to $80.5 per barrel over the month. As expected, the Fed announced the completion of QE tapering after its October policy meeting. The FTSE 100 fell 159 points to 6,622. Tullow Oil was the biggest faller in percentage terms, 24.6% lower after announcing a dry well offshore Gabon. BG Group (-8.8%) was also among those negatively affected by the oil price decline. The index fall would have been worse but for a strong rally in the second half of the month. The recovery in sentiment was driven by increased hopes of large-scale ECB stimulus and the surprise announcement from the BoJ of an increase in its own QE programme. US pharmaceuticals company AbbVie announced the withdrawal of its bid for Shire after a clampdown by US authorities on tax-motivated merger deals. Shares in Shire fell 22.0%, representing the biggest drag on the index in market capitalisation weighted terms. November: The FTSE 100 managed to post a gain, adding 176 points (+2.7%) to 6,722, despite a large headwind from its oil & gas companies. The oil price fell a further 18% to $66.2 a barrel in November. The Organisation of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) refused to cut its output targets in response to the price fall. The five biggest index fallers for 6

8 MANAGER S INVESTMENT REPORT the months were oil & gas producers, or providers of engineering and support services to the industry: Petrofac (-22.2%), Weir Group (-17.8%), Intertek (-14.2%), BG Group (-13.4%) and Tullow Oil (-12.3%). The BoE s quarterly report forecast low rates of inflation, leading to expectations of interest rates being kept at low levels, which boosted investor sentiment. Mario Draghi also made yet another reference to the possibility of more monetary stimulus in future. The telecoms sector was a positive feature of the index. Both Vodafone (+14.8%) and BT Group (+11.6%) mobile and fixed-line operators respectively were among the risers. Industry consolidation talk was sparked by BT s confirmation that it was in discussions regarding a deal to buy a mobile network: either O2 (owned by Telefonica) or EE (jointly owned by Orange and Deutsche Telekom). Friends Life (+14.2%) was another to see its shares perform well after it recommended a takeover offer from life insurance peer Aviva.

17 Additional Information Capital Gains Tax: As an authorised unit trust, the Fund is exempt from UK Capital Gains Tax. An individual s first 11,000 of net gains on disposals in the tax year are exempt from tax. Income Tax: UK tax resident individuals are entitled to tax credits in respect of dividend distributions received and are subject to income tax on the aggregate of the distribution and the tax credit. In the case of a distribution the current value of the tax credit is equal to one ninth of the net dividend received and the distribution plus tax credits are treated as the top slice of an individual s income. UK resident individuals who are not liable to tax are not able to reclaim the tax credits from the HM Revenue and Customs. In the case of UK resident individuals who are liable to starting or basic rate tax only, the tax credit will match his or her liability on the distribution and there will be no further tax to pay and no right to claim repayments from the HM Revenue and Customs. In the case of a higher rate tax payer, the tax credit will be set against, but not fully match, his or her tax liability on the distribution. Such people will have an additional tax liability to pay. Corporate Unitholders: Ordinary dividends distributed by the Fund to corporate unitholders will be treated as part-franked investment income and part unfranked investment income, in the corporate unitholders hands. The precise split will be calculated by the Manager and will be detailed on the distribution vouchers accompanying the distribution. For unitholders chargeable to UK corporation tax, income allocations representing the UK dividends received by the Fund will not be subject to corporation tax in the unitholders hands. Income allocations representing other types of income received by the Fund will be taxable as if they were annual payments received after the deduction of tax at the rate of 20 per cent of the gross distribution. Important information: It is important to remember that the price of units, and the income from them, can fall as well as rise and is not guaranteed and that investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Past performance is not a guide to future performance. The issue of units may be subject to an initial charge and this is likely to have an impact on the realisable value of your investment, particularly in the short term. You should always regard unit trust investment as long term. The annual management fee of the Fund is deducted from capital. Whilst this results in the dividend paid to investors being higher than would be the case were the annual management fee charged to income, the potential for capital growth may be reduced.
