Wind-up Provisions/Buy Back Policy
The Company has no fixed wind up date. A continuation resolution was passed at the 2013 AGM and will be
proposed at every third AGM thereafter. As part of the discount control mechanisms, the Board may consider
implementing a Share buy back at each quarterly Board meeting should the Shares have been trading at a discount
to NAV of 10% or greater for more than 90 days. The Company has the authority to purchase in the market up to
14.99% of its own issued Shares of each class. The Directors intend to seek annual renewal of this authority from
Shareholders at each AGM. Any shares bought back may be cancelled by the Company or, subject to applicable
laws, held in treasury for re-sale.
Net Dividend Yield – This is calculated by dividing the current financial years dividends (this will include prospective dividends) by the current price.
Dividend Growth – The annualised percentage growth in dividends. Based upon the current financial year, including any future estimates or forecasts.
Performance – Calculated using start and end period Share Prices or NAV Dividends are reinvested on the ex-dividend date at the prevailing Share Price or NAV.
Risk & Return – 1 Year ex income par NAV total return performance against 1 Year NAV volatility. Please see notes 8 and 15 for performance and volatility definitions
respectively.
2
10 Portfolio – In order to calculate the portfolio value we deduct any holdings in cash only (Note that Fixed Interest is not included).
11 Alpha – The difference between the fund’s average excess total return and the benchmark’s average excess total return.
3
12 Beta – The sensitivity of the fund to broad market movements. A Beta of 0.5 would imply the fund will move by half as much as the index.
4
13 R-squared – A measure of correlation between the fund and index. A value of 0.8 means that 80% of the fund’s NAV changes can be explained by changes in the index.
14 Sharpe – A risk-adjusted return measure, calculated by dividing the fund’s average monthly excess total return over the risk-free rate by the standard deviation of those returns.
5
The figure shown is the annualized Sharpe Ratio.
15 Volatility – The annualized standard deviation of the logged daily returns, adjusting for distributions from capital.
