Aberdeen Global – Sovereign High Yield Bond Fund (to be renamed Aberdeen Global - Emerging Markets

Bond Fund with effect from 30 March 2007)

The Fund’s investment objective is to maximise long term total return by investing primarily in international

high yield fixed interest securities including US, international and emerging market debt instruments, issued by

emerging country governments, supranational organisations or government related bodies. The base currency of

the Fund is US Dollars.

Aberdeen Global – Sterling Corporate Bond Fund

The Fund’s investment objective is to aim for a high and stable income through investment in a portfolio of

Sterling denominated fixed interest, floating rate and variable rate securities including preference shares and

convertible securities, with an emphasis on those assets which offer a higher yield than gilts. The Fund will

invest in a Sterling denominated portfolio of both investment and non-investment grade securities without

regard to the domicile of the issuer. Investment grade securities are considered to be Standard & Poor’s longterm

rated BBB– or higher or the equivalent on the scale of other ratings bodies. The emphasis will be on

investment grade corporate securities, however, the Fund may invest up to 40% of its Net Assets in below

securities which are below investment grade or which are not traded by any rating agency and a substantial

proportion of the Fund may therefore be invested in such securities. A proportion of the portfolio may be

invested in gilts. The portfolio will include governmental issues, corporate debt and high yielding fixed interest,

floating rate and variable rate securities issued by international bodies including governments, governmental

organisations and supra-national bodies, particularly those issued in the Eurosterling Market. The majority of

the portfolio will be invested in securities which are listed on the Eligible Markets of the European Union,

Switzerland and the European Economic Area. The Investment Manager will not place any particular emphasis

on specified maturity dates on acquisition. Securities acquired on the conversion of convertible securities held

within the portfolio (or pursuant to schemes of reconstruction) and warrants attaching to investments acquired

for the Fund may also be held for so long as the Investment Manager considers appropriate to maximise their

realisation value. No more than 5% of the Net Assets of the Fund may be invested in warrants. Securities held

by the Fund will be listed or traded on Eligible Markets, except as otherwise permitted by the investment

restrictions. The base currency of the Fund is Sterling.

Aberdeen Global – Sterling Financials Bond Fund

The Fund’s investment objective is to provide a total return for investors which exceeds that available from UK

building society deposits over the long term by investing in a portfolio of short-dated (i.e. maturity of five years

or less) sterling denominated bonds and debt securities generally issued by UK banks, financial institutions and

building societies (“financials”) and rated at least “A” by Standard & Poors Corporation (“S&P”). The base

currency of the Fund is Sterling.

Aberdeen Global – Technology Fund

The Fund’s investment objective is to aim for above average long-term capital growth from an international

portfolio of securities issued by companies involved in high technology industries. The base currency of the

Fund is US Dollars.

Aberdeen Global – UK Opportunities Fund

The Fund’s investment objective is long-term capital growth through investment primarily in equities and

equity-related securities of companies registered in the United Kingdom, or companies which derive a

significant proportion of their revenues or profits from United Kingdom operations or have a significant

proportion of their assets there. The base currency of the Fund is Sterling.

Aberdeen Global – World Bond Fund

The Fund’s investment objective is to invest in a range of high quality bonds in those fixed interest markets of

the world which, in the opinion of the Investment Manager, offer the optimum potential for a high income and

also capital growth. The core of the Fund is invested in the traditional major markets of Europe, the Far East

and North America. In addition to this, the Investment Manageralso actively seeks out newer emerging bond

markets where the higher yields available can often be at odds with improving economic and/or political trends.

The Investment Manager also seeks to exploit anomalies between Government, supra-national and quality

corporate issues. Derivatives (being the investment techniques and instruments referred to in Appendix A) are

used when appropriate within the limits set down by the Central Bank of Ireland for the purposes of efficient

portfolio management with the aim of improving capital and income returns. The precise mix of the portfolio is

under continuing review to anticipate and take advantage of changing worldwide market conditions. The base

currency of the Fund is Sterling.
