Investment Policies1. Specific Investment Policy of each Sub-FundThe Board of Directors has determined the investment policy andobjective of each of the Sub-Funds as described in “Appendix III –Sub-Fund Details” to this Prospectus. There can be no assurancethat the investment objective for any Sub-Fund will be attained.Pursuit of the investment policy and objective of any Sub-Fundmust be in compliance with the limits and restrictions set forth in“Appendix II –Investment Restrictions and Powers”.2. Securities LendingEach Sub-Fund may engage in securities lending in compliancewith the limits and restrictions set forth in “Appendix II –Investment Restrictions and Powers”.In respect of third parties, including members of JPMorgan Chase& Co., organising or structuring securities lending arrangements oracting as agents in relation to securities lending transactions, theFund may share with such third parties the revenues arising fromthe securities lending transactions as may be agreed between theFund and such third parties from time to time. The Board ofDirectors will ensure that revenues arising from securities lendingarrangements are in accordance with usual market practice andthat the Fund retains an appropriate share thereof. The netrevenues of the Fund arising from securities lending transactionsare specified in the semi-annual and annual reports published bythe Fund.3. PoolingWhere the investment policies of the Sub-Funds (and applicable lawsand regulations) so permit, and for the purpose of effectivemanagement, the Board of Directors, in accordance with theArticles, may pool the management of all or part of the assets of theSub-Funds concerned so that each Sub-Fund will participate in therelevant pool of assets in proportion to the assets contributedthereto by the relevant Sub-Fund. For further details, see under“5. Pooling” in the section “General Information”.4. Investment ConsiderationsInvesting in less developed or emerging marketsInvestors should note that certain of the Sub-Funds may invest inless developed or emerging markets as described in the relevantsection of “Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details” for such Sub-Funds.These markets may be volatile and illiquid and the investments ofthe Sub-Funds in such markets may be considered speculative andsubject to significant delays in settlement. The risk of significantfluctuations in the net asset value and of the suspension ofredemptions in those Sub-Funds may be higher than for Sub-Fundsinvesting in major world markets. In addition, there may be ahigher than usual risk of political, economic, social and religiousinstability and adverse changes in government regulations andlaws in less developed or emerging markets. The assets of Sub-Funds investing in such markets, as well as the income derivedfrom the Sub-Fund, may also be affected unfavourably byfluctuations in currency rates and exchange control and taxregulations and consequently the net asset value of Shares ofthese Sub-Funds may be subject to significant volatility. Some ofthese markets may not be subject to accounting, auditing andfinancial reporting standards and practices comparable to those ofmore developed countries and the securities markets of suchmarkets may be subject to unexpected closure. In addition, theremay be less government supervision, legal regulation and less welldefined tax laws and procedures than in countries with moredeveloped securities markets.Investors should consult a professional adviser as to the suitabilityfor them of an investment in any Sub-Fund and in particular anySub-Fund investing in less developed or emerging markets.Subscriptions to Sub-Funds investing in such markets should beconsidered only by investors who are aware of, and able to bear, therisks related thereto and such investments should be made on along-term basis.Investing in Equity SecuritiesInvesting in equity securities may offer a higher rate of return thanthose in short term and longer term debt securities. However, therisks associated with investments in equity securities may also behigher, because the investment performance of equity securitiesdepends upon factors which are difficult to predict. Such factorsinclude the possibility of sudden or prolonged market declines andrisks associated with individual companies. The fundamental riskassociated with any equity portfolio is the risk that the value of theinvestments it holds might decrease in value. Equity security valuesmay fluctuate in response to the activities of an individualcompany or in response to general market and/or economicconditions. Historically, equity securities have provided greaterlong-term returns and have entailed greater short-term risks thanother investment choices.Foreign Currency Exchange TransactionsSub-Funds may buy and sell securities and receive interest anddividends in currencies other than the currency in which therelevant Sub-Fund’s Shares are denominated and accordingly suchSub-Funds may enter from time to time into currency exchangetransactions either on a spot (i.e. cash) basis or by buying currencyexchange forward contracts.Neither spot transactions nor forward currency exchange contractseliminate fluctuations in the prices of a Sub-Fund’s securities or inforeign exchange rates, or prevent loss if the prices of thesesecurities should decline.A Sub-Fund may enter into currency exchange transactions in anattempt to protect against changes in a country’s currencyexchange rates between the trade and settlement dates of specificsecurities transactions or anticipated securities transactions. ASub-Fund may also enter into forward contracts to hedge against achange in such currency exchange rates that would cause a declinein the value of existing investments denominated or principallytraded in a currency other than the reference currency of that Sub-Fund. To do this, the Sub-Fund would enter into a forward contractto sell the currency in which the investment is denominated orprincipally traded in exchange for the reference currency of theSub-Fund.Although these transactions are intended to minimise the risk ofloss due to a decline in the value of the hedged currency, at theInvestment Policies 9


same time they limit any potential gain that might be realisedshould the value of the hedged currency increase. The precisematching of the forward contract amounts and the value of thesecurities involved will not generally be possible because thefuture value of such securities will change as a consequence ofmarket movements in the value of such securities between thedate when the forward contract is entered into and the date whenit matures. Therefore the successful execution of a hedgingstrategy which matches exactly the profile of the investments ofany Sub-Fund cannot be assured.Investing in fixed and floating rate Debt SecuritiesInvestment in fixed and floating rate debt securities is subject tointerest rate, sector, security and credit risks. Information relatingto the credit quality of the fixed and floating rate debt securities ofa particular Sub-Fund is given in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”.Lower-rated securities will usually offer higher yields than higherratedsecurities to compensate for the reduced creditworthinessand increased risk of default that these securities carry. Lowerratedsecurities generally tend to reflect short-term corporate andmarket developments to a greater extent than higher-ratedsecurities which react primarily to fluctuations in the general levelof interest rates. There are fewer investors in lower-ratedsecurities, and it may be harder to buy and sell securities at anoptimum time.Investors should note that credit ratings may not necessarilyreflect the true risk of an investment and that the InvestmentManager may use its own set of credit rating criteria to perform hiscredit analysis, which may differ from the criteria used by thecredit rating agencies.For the purpose of applying the credit rating to investmentdecisions, the Investment Manager considers that all securitieswithin one category are equivalent. For example, a minimum creditrequirement of A means that all securities rated A or Acomplemented by any signs or numbers, regardless of the creditrating agency, would be considered equivalent.In instances where two or more credit ratings are published byindependent credit rating agencies for a specific security and differ,the higher of these ratings shall be adopted.The volume of transactions effected in certain international bondmarkets may be appreciably below that of the world’s largestmarkets, such as the United States. Accordingly, a Sub-Fund’sinvestments in such markets may be less liquid and their pricesmay be more volatile than comparable investments in securitiestrading in markets with larger trading volumes. Moreover, thesettlement periods in certain markets may be longer than in otherswhich may affect portfolio liquidity.10 Investment Policies


The SharesThe Management Company may create within each Sub-Funddifferent classes of Shares (each a “Share Class”) whose assets willbe commonly invested pursuant to the specific investment policy ofthe relevant Sub-Fund. A distinct fee structure, currency ofdenomination, dividend policy or other specific feature may applyand a separate Net Asset Value per Share will be calculated foreach Share Class. The range of available Share Classes and theirfeatures are described in “Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details”.Subject to the restrictions described below, Shares are freelytransferable and are each entitled to participate equally in theprofits and liquidation proceeds attributable to the relevant ShareClass. The rules governing such allocation are set forth below.

Where itappears that a person who should be precluded from holdingShares, either alone or in conjunction with any other person, is abeneficial owner of Shares, the Management Company maycompulsorily redeem all Shares so owned in accordance with theprovisions of the Articles.The Management Company may, in its absolute discretion, delaythe acceptance of any subscription for Shares of a Share Classrestricted to Institutional Investors until such date as it hasreceived sufficient evidence of the qualification of the investor asan Institutional Investor.

edemption and switching requests in excess of 10% shall bedeferred until the next Valuation Day. On the next Valuation Day, orValuation Days until completion of the original requests, deferredrequests will be dealt with in priority to later requests.SettlementsIf, on the settlement date, banks are not open for business, or aninterbank settlement system is not operational, in the country ofthe currency of the relevant Share Class, then settlement will be onthe next Business Day on which those banks and settlementsystems are open.Confirmation of completed subscriptions, redemptions andswitches will normally be despatched on the Business Dayfollowing the execution of the transaction.No redemption payments will be made until the original applicationform and relevant subscription monies have been received fromthe Shareholder and all the necessary anti-money launderingchecks have been completed. Redemption proceeds will be paid onreceipt of faxed instructions where such payment is made into theaccount specified by the Shareholder in the original applicationform submitted.

If the subscription, redemption or switchrequest is not withdrawn, the Fund shall proceed to subscribe,redeem, or switch on the first applicable Valuation Day followingthe end of the suspension of the determination of the Net AssetValue of the Shares. All other requests to withdraw a subscription,redemption or switch request are at the sole discretion of theManagement Company, and will only be considered if receivedbefore 2.30 p.m. Luxembourg time on the relevant Valuation Day.Minimum Subscription and Holding Amounts and Eligibility forSharesThe Board of Directors have set minimum initial and subsequentsubscription amounts and minimum holding amounts for eachShare Class, as detailed under “1. Classes of Shares, b) MinimumInitial and Subsequent Subscription Amount, and Minimum HoldingAmount” in “Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details”.The Management Company has the discretion, from time to time,to waive or reduce any applicable minimum subscription amounts.The relevant minimum subscription amount shall not apply wherethe Shares are subscribed for by companies affiliated withJPMorgan Chase & Co. or by third party investment managers orDistributors approved by JPMorgan Chase & Co. who aresubscribing as a nominee.Where a Shareholder of a given Share Class accumulates a holdingof sufficient size to satisfy the minimum subscription requirementsof a ‘parallel Share Class’ within that Sub-Fund with lower fees andexpenses, the Shareholder may request that the ManagementCompany, in its absolute discretion, switch the holding into Sharesin the ‘parallel Share Class’. A ‘parallel Shares Class’ within a Sub-Fund is one that is identical except for the minimum subscriptionamount and expenses applicable to it.The right to redeem or switch Shares is subject to compliance withany conditions (including any minimum subscription or holdingamounts and eligibility requirements) applicable to the Share Classfrom which the redemption or switch is being made, and also theShare Class into which the switch is to be effected (the “New ShareClass”). In the case of a transfer of Shares, whilst there is nochange in actual Share Class, the minimum subscription andholding amounts will apply to the investment of the existing andnew Shareholder after the transfer.The Board of Directors may also, at any time, decide tocompulsorily redeem all Shares from Shareholders whose holdingis less than the minimum holding amount specified under“1. Classes of Shares, b) Minimum Initial and SubsequentSubscription Amount, and Minimum Holding Amount” in “AppendixIII – Sub-Fund Details” or who fail to satisfy any other applicableeligibility requirements set out above or stated under “1. Classes ofShares, a) Eligibility Requirements” in “Appendix III – Sub-FundDetails”. In such case the Shareholder concerned will receive onemonth’s prior notice so as to be able to increase its holding abovesuch amount or otherwise satisfy the eligibility requirements.Unless waived by the Management Company, if a redemption orswitch request would result in the amount remaining invested by aShareholder falling below the minimum holding amount of thatShare Class, such request will be treated as a request to redeem orswitch, as appropriate, the Shareholder’s total holding in thatShare Class. If the request is to transfer Shares, then that requestmay be refused by the Management Company.If, as a result of a switch or transfer request, the value of aShareholder’s holding in the New Share Class would be less thanthe relevant minimum subscription amount, the ManagementCompany may decide not to accept the request.Shareholders are required to notify the Management Companyimmediately in the event that they are or become US Persons orhold Shares for the account or benefit of US Persons or holdShares in breach of any law or regulation or otherwise incircumstances having, or which may have, adverse regulatory, taxor fiscal consequences for the Fund or the Shareholders orotherwise be detrimental to the interests of the Fund. If theManagement Company becomes aware that a Shareholder isholding Shares in breach of any law or regulation or otherwise incircumstances having, or which may have, adverse regulatory, taxor fiscal consequences for the Fund or the Shareholders or wouldotherwise be detrimental to the interests of the Fund or that theShareholder has become or is a US Person, the ManagementCompany may, in its sole discretion, redeem the Shares of theShareholder in accordance with the provisions of the Articles.Should a Shareholder become a US Person they may be subject toUS withholding taxes and tax reporting.Further information in relation to the subscription, redemption andswitching of Shares is set out below.12 The Shares

Redemptions willbe effected at the Bid Price of the relevant Share Class determinedon the Valuation Day on which the request has been accepted.Redemption requests will only be executed if cleared funds inrespect of the subscription for those Shares have been received.The Management Company may carry out any authenticationprocedures that it considers appropriate relating to a redemptionrequest. This aims to mitigate the risk of error and fraud for theFund, its agents or Shareholders. Where it has not been possible tocomplete any authentication procedures to its satisfaction, theManagement Company may delay the processing of paymentinstructions until authentication procedures have been satisfied.This will not affect the Valuation Day on which the redemptionrequest is accepted and the Bid Price to be applied. Neither theManagement Company nor the Fund shall be held responsible tothe Shareholder or anyone if it delays execution or declines toexecute redemption instructions in these circumstances.Redemption payments will normally be paid in the ReferenceCurrency of the Share Class by bank transfer within 3 BusinessDays of the relevant Valuation Day (unless otherwise specified in“Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details”). This period may be increased upto 5 Business Days for deals placed through certain Distributors orSales Agents approved by the Management Company, such asJPMorgan Funds (Asia) Limited in Hong Kong. Neither the Fund northe Management Company are responsible for any delays orcharges incurred at any receiving bank or settlement system.

The redemption charge (if any) will be the same for allredemptions effected on the same Valuation Day.Redemption in KindThe Management Company may request that a Shareholderaccepts “redemption in kind” i.e. receives a portfolio of securitiesfrom the Sub-Fund equivalent in value to the redemption proceeds.The Shareholder is free to refuse the redemption in kind. Wherethe Shareholder agrees to accept a redemption in kind it willreceive a selection of the Sub-Fund’s holdings having due regard tothe principle of equal treatment to all Shareholders. TheManagement Company may also, at its sole discretion, acceptredemption in kind requests from Shareholders. The value of theredemption in kind will be certified by an auditor’s certificate. Allsupplemental costs associated with redemptions in kind will beborne by the Shareholder requesting the redemption in kind orsuch other party as agreed by the Management Company.(c) Switching of SharesSubject to the eligibility requirements and minimum holdingamounts described in “Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details”, andsubject to any suspension of the determination of the Net AssetValues per Share concerned, Shareholders have the right to switchall or part of their Shares of any Share Class of a Sub-Fund (the“Original Share Class”) into Shares of another Share Class (the“New Share Class”) of that or another Sub-Fund, or whenpermitted by the Management Company, to Shares of any otherUCITS or other UCIs managed by a member of JPMorgan Chase &Co., by applying for switching in the same manner as for thesubscription and redemption of Shares.If the switching request is received before 2.30 p.m. Luxembourgtime on a day that is a common Valuation Day for the OriginalShare Class and the New Share Class (the “Common ValuationDay”), the number of Shares issued upon switching will be basedupon the Bid Price of the Original Share Class and the Net AssetValue of the New Share Class, plus a switching charge (as detailedbelow). If the switching request is received before 2.30 p.m.Luxembourg time on a day that is not a Common Valuation Day forthe relevant Share Classes (or if there is no Common ValuationDay), the switch will be made on the basis of the Bid Price of theOriginal Share Class and the Net Asset Value of the New ShareClass calculated on the next relevant Valuation Days of each of thetwo Share Classes concerned, plus a switching charge (as detailedbelow). Requests received after 2.30 p.m. Luxembourg time on anyValuation Day will be deferred to the next Valuation Day in thesame manner as for the subscription and redemption of Shares.The Management Company may apply a switching charge notexceeding 1% of the Net Asset Value of the Shares in the NewShare Class.

Allocation of assets and liabilities among the Sub-FundsThe assets and liabilities will be allocated among the Sub-Funds inthe following manner:(a) the proceeds from the issue of each Share of each Sub-Fundare to be applied in the books of the Fund to the pool of assetsestablished for that Sub-Fund and the assets and liabilities andincome and expenditure attributable thereto are applied tosuch pool subject to the provisions set forth hereafter;(b) where any asset is derived from another asset, such derivativeasset is applied in the books of the Fund to the same pool asthe asset from which it was derived and on each revaluation ofan asset, the increase or diminution in value is applied to therelevant pool;(c) where the Fund incurs a liability which relates to any asset of aparticular pool or to any action taken in connection with anasset of a particular pool, such liability is allocated to therelevant pool;(d) in the case where any asset or liability of the Fund cannot beconsidered as being attributable to a particular pool, suchasset or liability is allocated to all the pools in equal parts or, ifthe amounts so justify, pro rata to the net asset values of therelevant Sub-Funds;(e) upon the payment of dividends to the holders of Shares in anySub-Fund, the net asset value of such Sub-Fund shall bereduced by the amount of such dividends.Under the Articles of the Fund, the Board of Directors may decideto create within each Sub-Fund one or more Share Class whoseassets will be commonly invested pursuant to the specificinvestment policy of the Sub-Fund concerned but where a specificinitial or redemption charge structure, fee structure, minimumsubscription amount, hedging policy or dividend policy may beapplied to each Share Class.

If one or more Share Class has have beencreated within the same Sub-Fund, the allocation rules set outabove shall apply, as appropriate, to such Share Classes.General Information 15


5. PoolingFor the purpose of effective management, and subject to theprovisions of the Articles and to applicable laws and regulations,the Board of Directors may invest and manage all or any part ofthe portfolio of assets established for two or more Sub-Funds (forthe purposes hereof “Participating Sub-Funds”) on a pooled basis.Any such asset pool shall be formed by transferring to it cash orother assets (subject to such assets being appropriate with respectto the investment policy of the pool concerned) from each of theParticipating Sub-Funds. Thereafter, the Board of Directors mayfrom time to time make further transfers to each asset pool.Assets may also be transferred back to a Participating Sub-Fundup to the amount of the participation of the Share Classconcerned. The Share of a Participating Sub-Fund in an asset poolshall be measured by reference to notional units of equal value inthe asset pool. On formation of an asset pool, the Board ofDirectors shall, in their discretion, determine the initial value ofnotional units (which shall be expressed in such currency as theBoard of Directors consider appropriate) and shall allocate to eachParticipating Sub-Fund units having an aggregate value equal tothe amount of cash (or to the value of other assets) contributed.Thereafter, the value of the notional unit shall be determined bydividing the net asset value of the asset pool by the number ofnotional units subsisting.When additional cash or assets are contributed to or withdrawnfrom an asset pool, the allocation of units of the Participating Sub-Fund concerned will be increased or reduced, as the case may be,by a number of units determined by dividing the amount of cash orthe value of assets contributed or withdrawn by the current valueof a unit. Where a contribution is made in cash, it will be treatedfor the purpose of this calculation as reduced by an amount whichthe Board of Directors consider appropriate to reflect fiscalcharges and dealing and purchase costs which may be incurred ininvesting the cash concerned; in the case of cash withdrawal, acorresponding addition will be made to reflect costs which may beincurred in realising securities or other assets of the asset pool.Dividends, interest and other distributions of an income naturereceived in respect of the assets in an asset pool will beimmediately credited to the Participating Sub-Funds in proportionto their respective participation in the asset pool at the time ofreceipt. Upon the dissolution of the Fund, the assets in an assetpool will be allocated to the Participating Sub-Funds in proportionto their respective participation in the asset pool.6. Determination of the Net Asset Value of SharesThe net asset value of the Shares of each Share Class isdetermined in its reference currency on each Valuation Day bydividing the net assets attributable to each Share Class by thenumber of Shares of such Share Class then outstanding, roundedto the nearest two decimal places. The net assets of each ShareClass are made up of the value of the assets attributable to suchShare Class less the total liabilities attributable to such Share Classcalculated at such time as the Management Company shall haveset for such purpose.The value of the assets of the Fund shall be determinedas follows:(a) the value of any cash on hand or on deposit, bills and demandnotes and accounts receivable, prepaid expenses, cashdividends and interest declared or accrued as aforesaid, andnot yet received shall be deemed to be the full amount thereof,unless, however, the same is unlikely to be paid or received infull, in which case the value thereof shall be determined aftermaking such discount as the Management Company mayconsider appropriate in such case to reflect the true valuethereof;(b) the value of securities and/or financial derivative instrumentswhich are quoted or dealt in on any stock exchange shall bebased on the latest available price on the relevant stockexchange;(c) securities and/or financial derivative instruments dealt in onanother regulated market are valued on the basis of the latestavailable price on such market;(d) for non-quoted securities or securities not traded or dealt in onany stock exchange or other regulated market, as well asquoted or non-quoted securities on such other market forwhich no valuation price is available, or securities for which thequoted prices are not representative of the fair market value,the value thereof shall be determined prudently and in goodfaith by the Management Company on the basis of foreseeablesales prices;(e) financial derivative instruments which are not listed on anyofficial stock exchange or traded on any other organisedmarket will be valued in a reliable and verifiable manner on adaily basis and in accordance with market practice;(f) swaps are valued at their fair value based on the underlyingsecurities (at close of business or intraday) as well as on thecharacteristics of the underlying commitments;(g) shares or units in UCITS and other UCIs shall be valued at theirlast available net asset value; as reported by suchundertakings;(h) liquid assets and money market instruments may be valued atnominal value plus any accrued interest or on an amortisedcost basis. All other assets, where practice allows, may bevalued in the same manner.The value of assets denominated in a currency other than thereference currency of a Sub-Fund shall be determined by takinginto account the rate of exchange prevailing at the time of thedetermination of the net asset value.Swing Pricing AdjustmentA Sub-Fund may suffer dilution of the Net Asset Value per Sharedue to investors buying or selling Shares in a Sub-Fund at a pricethat does not reflect the dealing and other costs that arise whensecurity trades are undertaken by the Investment Manager toaccommodate cash inflows or outflows.In order to counter this impact, a swing pricing mechanism may beadopted to protect the interests of Shareholders of the Fund. If onany Valuation Day, the aggregate net transactions in Shares of a16 General Information


Sub-Fund exceed a pre-determined threshold, as determined andreviewed for each Sub-Fund on a periodic basis by theManagement Company, the Net Asset Value per Share may beadjusted upwards or downwards to reflect net inflows and netoutflows respectively. The net inflows and net outflows will bedetermined by the Management Company based on the latestavailable information at the time of calculation of the Net AssetValue per Share. The swing pricing mechanism may be appliedacross all Sub-Funds with the exception of JPMorgan InvestmentFunds – Blue and Green Fund, JPMorgan Investment Funds –Highbridge Statistical Market Neutral Fund and the money marketSub-Funds. The extent of the price adjustment will be set by theManagement Company to reflect dealing and other costs. Suchadjustment may vary from Sub-Fund to Sub-Fund and will notexceed 2% of the original Net Asset Value per Share.Pricing Underlying Securities at Bid or OfferThe Management Company may consider it in the interests of theShareholders (or potential Shareholders) to value securities ateither their bid or offer prices, given the prevailing marketconditions and/or the level of subscriptions or redemptions relativeto the size of the relevant Sub-Fund. In addition the Net AssetValue may be adjusted for such sum as may represent theappropriate provision for dealing charges that may be incurred bya Sub-Fund, provided always that such sum shall not exceed 1% ofthe Net Asset Value of the Sub-Fund at such time. Under thesecircumstances, swing pricing would not be applied to the Net AssetValue.Alternative Valuation PrinciplesThe Management Company, in circumstances where the interests ofthe Shareholders or the Company so justify, may take appropriatemeasures such as applying other appropriate valuation principlesto certain or all of the assets of the Sub-Funds and/or the assets ofa given Share Class if the aforesaid valuation methods appearimpossible or inappropriate. Alternatively, the ManagementCompany may, in the same circumstances, adjust the Net AssetValue per Share of a Sub-Fund prior to publication to reflect whatis believed to be the fair value of the portfolio as at the point ofvaluation. If an adjustment is made, it will be applied consistentlyto all Share Classes in the same Sub-Fund.Publication of PricesThe Net Asset Value per Share of each Share Class and the Bid andOffer Prices thereof are available at the registered office of the Fundand are on the website www.jpmorganassetmanagement.com.7.

It is therefore possible that any of themmay, in the due course of their business, have potential conflicts ofinterest with the Fund or any Sub-Fund. In such event, each will atall times have regard to its obligations under any agreements towhich it is party or by which it is bound in relation to the Fund orany Sub-Fund. In particular, but without limitation to its obligationsto act in the best interests of the Shareholders when undertakingany dealings or investments where conflicts of interest may arise,each will respectively endeavour to ensure that such conflicts areresolved fairly. More specifically, the Management Company, underthe rules of conduct applicable to it, must try to avoid conflicts ofinterests and, when they cannot be avoided, ensure that its clients(including the Fund) are fairly treated.There is no prohibition on the Fund entering into any transactionswith the Management Company or any Investment Manager whichare members of JPMorgan Chase & Co., the Sales Agents, or theCustodian or with any of their affiliates, provided that suchtransactions are carried out as if effected on normal commercialterms negotiated at arm’s length. In such case, in addition to themanagement fees the Investment Managers earn for managing theFund, they may also have an arrangement with the issuer, dealerand/or distributor of any products entitling them to a share in therevenue from such products that they purchase on behalf of theFund. In addition, there is no prohibition on Investment Managersthat are members of JPMorgan Chase & Co. to purchase anyproducts on behalf of the Fund where the issuer, dealer and/ordistributor of such products are their affiliates provided that suchtransactions are carried out as if effected on normal commercialterms negotiated at arm’s length, in the best interest of the Fund.The Management Company, Investment Managers or any of theiraffiliates acting in a fiduciary capacity with respect to their clientaccounts may recommend to or direct its clients to buy and sellShares of the Fund.

Morgan wouldbecome a Shareholder of the Fund. As a consequence, J.P. Morganand its affiliates could hold a relatively large proportion of Sharesand voting rights in the Fund.Affiliates of JPMorgan Chase & Co. act as counterparties for certainforward foreign exchange and financial futures contracts. TheManagement Company and Custodian, Corporate andAdministrative Agent and the Principal Paying Agents of the Fundare considered as related parties.18 General Information

Management and Fund Charges1. Explanation of the Charging StructuresInvestment in the Fund is generally offered via six chargingstructures, as represented by the A, B, C, D, I and X Share Classes.The Share Classes are differentiated primarily based on theminimum investment requirement, in the case of A, B, C and DShare Classes, the minimum account maintenance requirementsand Shareholder’s client relationship with JPMorgan Chase & Co., inthe case of X Share Classes, or both minimum investmentrequirements and the Shareholder’s client relationship withJPMorgan Chase & Co. in the case of I Share Classes.The X Share Classes are designed to accommodate an alternativecharging structure whereby an Annual Management and AdvisoryFee normally charged to the Fund and then passed on in the Shareprice is instead administratively levied and collected by theManagement Company or the appropriate JPMorgan Chase and Co.entity directly from the Shareholder. Certain Sub-Funds or ShareClasses may incorporate a performance fee as further detailedbelow.The Fund seeks to preserve Shareholders from fluctuations in itsOperating and Administrative Expenses (as this term is definedbelow) and has agreed with the Management Company that theexcess of such Expenses above the annual rate specified for certainShare Classes, will be borne by the Management Company, as setout below. Operating and Administrative Expenses are allocated tothe Sub-Funds to which they are attributable or among allSub-Funds and Share Classes pro rata to their respective net assets(or in a fair and reasonable manner determined by the Directors ofthe Fund). The allocation of Operating and Administrative Expensesis audited annually by the independent auditors of the Fund.Operating and Administrative Expenses are accrued daily withineach Sub-Fund’s Share Classes according to the applicablecharging structure of each Class.Except where otherwise indicated in “Appendix III - Sub-FundDetails”, Operating and Administrative Expenses borne by the A, B,C and D Share Classes of all Sub-Funds (and I Share Classes of theJPMorgan Investment Funds – Euro Liquid Market Fund) are set ata fixed rate specified in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details” and theManagement Company bears the portion of such Operating andAdministrative Expenses which exceed the rates specified.Conversely, the Management Company is entitled to retain anyamount by which the fixed rate of Operating and AdministrationExpenses to be borne by the relevant Share Class, as set out in“Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”, exceeds the actual expensesincurred by such Share Class.For some Share Classes, the Operating and AdministrativeExpenses are capped at a maximum figure. Where this occurs it isdisclosed in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details” and any excess ofOperating and Administrative Expenses allocable to that ShareClass over the maximum figure stated in “Appendix III - Sub-FundDetails” is borne by the Management Company.Any exceptions to the charging structures detailed above are notedin “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”.All fees, charges, expenses and costs to be borne by the Fund willbe subject, where applicable to the addition of VAT or anyanalogous taxation where applicable.2. Annual Management and Advisory FeeThe Fund pays to the Management Company an annualmanagement fee calculated as a percentage of the average dailynet assets of each Sub-Fund or Share Class under its management(“Annual Management and Advisory Fee”). The AnnualManagement and Advisory Fee is accrued daily and payablemonthly in arrears at the rate specified in “Appendix III - Sub-FundDetails”. The Management Company may from time to time, and atits absolute discretion, decide to reduce such rate (which mightbecome 0.0%). Annual Management and Advisory Fees payable bythe X Share Classes of the Sub-Funds are administratively leviedand collected by the Management Company or the appropriateJPMorgan Chase & Co. entity directly from the Shareholder.

ShareholdersShareholders are not normally subject to any capital gains,income, gift, estate, inheritance or other taxes in Luxembourgexcept for Shareholders domiciled, resident or having apermanent establishment in Luxembourg, and except for certainformer residents of Luxembourg and non-residents if owning morethan 10% of the share capital of the Fund, disposing of it in wholeor part within six months of acquisition. Also see “European UnionTax Considerations” section below.3. European Union Tax ConsiderationsThe Council of the EU has, on 3 June 2003, adopted CouncilDirective 2003/48/EC on taxation of savings income in the form ofinterest payments (the “Directive”). Under the Directive, MemberStates of the EU will be required to provide the tax authorities ofanother EU Member State with information on payments ofinterest or other similar income paid by a paying agent (asdefined by the Directive) within its jurisdiction to an individualresident in that other EU Member State. Austria, Belgium andLuxembourg have opted instead for a tax withholding system for atransitional period in relation to such payments. Switzerland,Monaco, Liechtenstein, Andorra and San Marino and the ChannelIslands, the Isle of Man and the dependent or associatedterritories in the Caribbean, have also introduced measuresequivalent to information reporting or, during the abovetransitional period, withholding tax.The Directive has been implemented in Luxembourg by a lawdated 21 June 2005 (the “EUSD Law”).Dividends distributed by a Sub-Fund of the Fund will be subject tothe Directive and the EUSD Law if more than 15% of such Sub-Fund’s assets are invested in debt claims (as defined in the EUSDLaw) and proceeds realised by Shareholders on the redemption orsale of Shares in a Sub-Fund will be subject to the Directive andthe EUSD Law if more than 40% of such Sub-Fund’s assets areinvested in debt claims (such Sub-Funds, hereafter “Affected Sub-Funds”).The applicable withholding tax will be at a rate of 20% until30 June 2011 and 35% from 1 July 2011 onwards.Consequently, if in relation to an Affected Sub-Fund aLuxembourg paying agent makes a payment of dividends orredemption proceeds directly to a Shareholder who is anindividual resident or deemed resident for tax purposes in anotherEU Member State or certain of the above mentioned dependent orassociated territories, such payment will, subject to the nextparagraph below, be subject to withholding tax at the rateindicated above.No withholding tax will be withheld by the Luxembourg payingagent if the relevant individual either (i) has expressly authorisedthe paying agent to report information to the tax authorities inaccordance with the provisions of the EUSD Law or (ii) hasprovided the paying agent with a certificate drawn up in theformat required by the EUSD Law by the competent authorities ofhis State or residence for tax purposes.The Fund reserves the right to reject any application for Shares ifthe information provided by any prospective investor does notmeet the standards required by the EUSD Law as a result of theDirective.Taxation 25


The foregoing is only a summary of the implications of theDirective and the EUSD Law, is based on the currentinterpretation thereof and does not purport to be complete inall respects. It does not constitute investment or tax advice andinvestors should therefore seek advice from their financial ortax adviser on the full implications for themselves of theDirective and the EUSD Law.4. Taxation of China A SharesThe Management Company reserves the right to provide for capitalgains tax on Sub-Funds investing in China A Shares. The tax rulesapplied by the People’s Republic of China (PRC) taxation authoritiesin this area are unclear. As the provision made by the ManagementCompany is based on current market practice and the ManagementCompany’s understanding of the tax rules, any changes to marketpractice or interpretation of PRC tax rules may impact thisprovision and may result in this provision being higher or lowerthan required.26 Taxation

Dividendsfrom certain Sub-Funds may be reclassified as interest for thosesubject to UK income tax.

If any Sub-Fund intends to make use of financialderivative instruments for any purpose other than efficientportfolio management or to hedge against market or currencyrisks, this will be specified in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”.Each Sub-Fund may invest in financial derivative instrumentswithin the limits laid down in restriction 3) a) v) and vi) above,provided that the exposure to the underlying assets does notexceed in aggregate the investment limits laid down in restrictions3) a) i) to vi) above. When a Sub-Fund invests in index-basedfinancial derivative instruments, these investments do not have tobe combined to the limits laid down in restriction 3) a) above.When a transferable security or money market instrument embedsa derivative, the latter must be taken into account when complyingwith the requirements of this restriction.2. Global ExposureThe global exposure relating to financial derivative instruments iscalculated taking into account the current value of the underlying32 Appendix II


assets, counterparty risk, foreseeable market movements and thetime available to liquidate the positions.The Fund shall ensure that the global exposure of each Sub-Fundrelating to financial derivative instruments does not exceed thetotal net assets of that Sub-Fund. The Sub-Fund’s global exposureshall consequently not exceed 200% of its total net assets. Inaddition, this global exposure may not be increased by more than10% by means of temporary borrowings 1 (as referred to in section6 (e) above) so that the Sub-Fund’s overall risk exposure may notexceed 210% of any Sub-Fund’s total net assets under anycircumstances.The global exposure relating to financial derivative instrumentsmay be calculated through the VaR methodology or thecommitment approach.2.1 VaR MethodologyCertain Sub-Funds apply a Value-at-Risk (VaR) approach tocalculate their global exposure, and this will be specified in theirrespective investment policies in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”.In respect of such Sub-Funds, the limits and restrictions a) to f) inthe section “Commitment Approach” below shall not be applicablealthough they may use similar strategies and hedging techniques.The VaR approach is measured at a 99% confidence level andbased on a time horizon of one month. The holding period relatingto financial derivative instruments, for the purpose of calculatingglobal exposure, is one month.2.2 Commitment ApproachUnless otherwise specified in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”, theSub-Funds calculate their global exposure resulting from the use offinancial derivative instruments on a commitment basis. Such Sub-Funds will make use of financial derivative instruments in amanner not to materially alter a Sub-Fund’s risk profile over whatwould be the case if financial derivative instruments were not used.When using the financial derivative instruments described in thepreceding paragraphs within this section, those Sub-Funds usingthe commitment approach must comply with the limits andrestrictions in items a) to f) below:a) With respect to options on securities:i) the Fund may not invest in put or call options on securitiesunless:ii)– such options are quoted on a stock exchange or tradedon a regulated market; and– the acquisition price of such options does not exceed,in terms of premium, 15% of the total net assets of therelevant Sub-Fund;the Fund may write call options on securities that it doesnot own. However, the aggregate of the exercise prices ofsuch call options must not exceed 25% of the net assetvalue of the relevant Sub-Fund;iii) the Fund may write put options on securities. However, therelevant Sub-Fund must hold sufficient liquid assets to1Temporary borrowing is not permitted for investment purposes.cover the aggregate of the exercise prices of such optionswritten.b) The Fund may enter into forward currency contracts or writecall options or purchase put options on currencies providedhowever that the transactions made in one currency in respectof one Sub-Fund may in principle not exceed the valuation ofthe aggregate assets of such Sub-Fund denominated in thatcurrency (or currencies which are likely to fluctuate in thesame manner) nor exceed the period during which such assetsare held.By derogation to the above, Sub-Funds may be managed byreference to a benchmark to hedge currency risk. Thesebenchmarks are appropriate, recognised indices orcombinations thereof and disclosed in “Appendix III - Sub-FundDetails”. The neutral risk position of any Sub-Fund will be thecomposition of the benchmark in both its investment andcurrency component weightings. The Investment Managersmay take currency positions towards this benchmark bypurchasing (or selling) currencies for forward settlement by thesale (or purchase) of other currencies held in the portfolio. TheInvestment Managers may however give to the Sub-Fund acurrency exposure that differs from that applicable benchmarkprovided that, when using forward currency contracts,purchases of currencies that are not a reference currency ofthe relevant Sub-Fund will be permitted to increase theexposure up to a maximum of 15% above the benchmarkweight of a given currency and in total such purchasetransactions providing a currency exposure which is greaterthan the benchmark weightings (except purchases in thereference currency of the Sub-Fund) will not be in excess of thevalue of 20% of the assets of the relevant Sub-Fund.In addition, the Fund may engage in the following currencyhedging techniques:(i)hedging by proxy, i.e. a technique whereby a Sub-Fundeffects a hedge of the reference currency of the Sub-Fund(or benchmark or currency exposure of the assets of theSub-Fund) against exposure in one currency by insteadselling (or purchasing) another currency closely related toit, provided however that these currencies are indeed likelyto fluctuate in the same manner.(ii) cross-hedging, i.e. a technique whereby a Sub-Fund sells acurrency to which it is exposed and purchases more ofanother currency to which the Sub-Fund may also beexposed, the level of the base currency being leftunchanged, provided however that all such currencies arecurrencies of the countries which are at that time withinthe Sub-Fund’s benchmark or investment policy and thetechnique is used as an efficient method to gain thedesired currency and asset exposures.(iii) anticipatory hedging, i.e. a technique whereby the decisionto take a position on a given currency and the decision tohave some securities held in a Sub-Fund’s portfoliodenominated in that currency are separate, providedAppendix II 33


however that the currency which is bought in anticipationof a later purchase of underlying portfolio securities is acurrency associated with those countries which are withinthe Sub-Fund’s benchmark or investment policy.A Sub-Fund may not sell forward more currency exposure thanthere is in underlying assets exposure on either an individualcurrency (unless hedging by proxy) or a total currency basis.In case the publication of the benchmark has been stopped orwhere major changes in that benchmark have occurred or if forsome reason the Directors feel that another benchmark isappropriate, another benchmark may be chosen. Any suchchange of benchmark will be reflected in an updatedProspectus.The Fund may only enter into forward currency contracts ifthey constitute private agreements with highly rated financialinstitutions specialised in this type of transaction and maywrite call options and purchase put options on currencies ifthey are traded on a regulated market operating regularly,being recognised and open to the public.c) The Fund may not deal in financial futures, except that:i) for the purpose of hedging the risk of the fluctuation of thevalue of the portfolio securities of its Sub-Funds, the Fundmay sell stock index futures provided that there existssufficient correlation between the composition of the indexused and the corresponding portfolio of the relevant Sub-Fund;ii)for the purpose of efficient portfolio management, theFund may, in respect of each Sub-Fund, purchase and sellfutures contracts on any kind of financial instruments;d) The Fund may not deal in index options except that:i) for the purpose of hedging the risk of the fluctuation of thevalue of the portfolio securities of its Sub-Funds, the Fundmay sell call options on indices or purchase put options onindices provided there exists a sufficient correlationbetween the composition of the index used and thecorresponding portfolio of the relevant Sub-Fund. Thevalue of the underlying securities included in the relevantindex option shall not exceed, together with outstandingcommitments in financial futures contracts entered into forthe same purpose, the aggregate value of the portion ofthe securities portfolio to be hedged; andii)for the purpose of efficient portfolio management the Fundmay, in respect of each Sub-Fund, purchase and selloptions on any kind of financial instruments;provided however that the aggregate acquisition cost (interms of premiums paid) of options on securities, indexoptions, interest rate options and options on any kind offinancial instruments purchased by the Fund in respect of aparticular Sub-Fund shall not exceed 15% of the total netassets of the relevant Sub-Fund;provided that the Fund may only enter into thetransactions referred to in paragraphs c) and d) above, ifthese transactions concern contracts which are traded on aregulated market operating regularly, being recognisedand open to the public.e) i) The Fund may sell interest rate futures contracts for thepurpose of managing interest rate risk. It may also for thesame purpose write call options or purchase put options oninterest rates or enter into interest rate swaps by privateagreement with highly rated financial institutionsspecialised in this type of operation. In principle, theaggregate of the commitments of each Sub-Fund relatingto futures contracts, options and swap transactions oninterest rates may not exceed the aggregate estimatedmarket value of the assets to be hedged and held by theSub-Fund in the currency corresponding to those contracts.(ii) The Fund may use bond and interest rate options, bond andinterest rate futures, index futures contracts and MBS TBAsfor the purposes of efficient portfolio management andmay enter into currency, interest rate and index swaps.The Fund may enter into swap contracts in which the Fundand the counterparty agree to exchange payments whereone or both parties pay the returns generated by asecurity, instrument, basket or index thereof. The paymentsmade by the Fund to the counterparty and vice versa arecalculated by reference to a specific security, index, orinstruments and an agreed upon notional amount. Anysuch underlying security or instrument must be atransferable security and any such index must be an indexof a regulated market. The value of the underlyingsecurities shall be taken into account for the calculation ofthe investment restrictions applicable to individual issuers.The relevant indices include, but are not limited to,currencies, interest rates, prices and total return oninterest rates indices, fixed income indices and stockindices.The Fund may enter into swap contracts relating to anyfinancial instruments or index, including total return swaps.All such permitted transactions must be effected throughhighly rated financial institutions specialised in this type oftransaction.(iii) The Fund may use credit default swaps. A credit defaultswap is a bilateral financial contract in which onecounterpart (the protection buyer) pays a periodic fee inreturn for a contingent payment by the protection sellerfollowing a credit event of a reference issuer. Theprotection buyer must either sell particular obligationsissued by the reference issuer for its par value (or someother designated reference or strike price) when a creditevent occurs or receive a cash settlement based on thedifference between the market price and such reference34 Appendix II


price. A credit event is commonly defined as bankruptcy,insolvency, receivership, material adverse restructuring ofdebt, or failure to meet payment obligations when due. TheISDA have produced standardised documentation for thesetransactions under the umbrella of its ISDA MasterAgreement.The Fund may use credit default swaps in order to hedgethe specific credit risk of some of the issuers in its portfolioby buying protection.In addition, the Fund may, provided it is in its exclusiveinterest, buy protection under credit default swaps withoutholding the underlying assets provided that the aggregatepremiums paid together with the present value of theaggregate premiums still payable in connection with creditdefault swap purchased together with the amount of theaggregate of premiums paid relating to the purchase ofoptions on transferable securities or on financialinstruments for a purpose other than hedging, may not, atany time, exceed 15% of the net assets of the relevant Sub-Fund.Provided it is in its exclusive interest, the Fund may alsosell protection under credit default swaps in order toacquire a specific credit exposure. The Fund will only enterinto credit default swap transactions with highly ratedfinancial institutions specialised in this type of transactionand only in accordance with the standard terms laid downby the ISDA. Also, the Fund will only accept obligationsupon a credit event that are within the investment policy ofthe relevant Sub-Fund.The Fund will ensure it can dispose of the necessary assetsat any time in order to pay redemption proceeds resultingfrom redemption requests and to meet its obligationsresulting from credit default swaps and other techniquesand instruments.The aggregate commitments of all credit default swaptransactions will not exceed 20% of the net assets of any Sub-Fund provided that all swaps will be fully funded.f) With respect to options referred to under a), b), d) and e)above, not withstanding any provision to the contrary, the Fundmay enter into OTC option transactions with highly ratedfinancial institutions participating in these types oftransactions.3. Specific restrictions on dealing in Financial DerivativeInstrumentsUnless otherwise approved by the Taiwan Financial SupervisoryCommission, for any Sub-Fund registered for public distribution inTaiwan, the total value of a Sub-Fund’s open long derivativepositions may not exceed 40% of the Sub-Fund’s net asset value,and the total value of a Sub-Fund’s open short derivative positionsmay not exceed the total market value of the correspondingsecurities held by the Sub-FundII Financial Techniques and InstrumentsFinancial techniques and instruments (securities lending, sale withright of repurchase transactions as well as repurchase and reverserepurchase agreements) may be used by any Sub-Fund for thepurpose of generating additional capital or income or for reducingcosts or risk, to the maximum extent allowed by and within thelimits set forth in (i) article 11 of the Grand Ducal regulation of8 February 2008 relating to certain definitions of the LuxembourgLaw, (ii) CSSF Circular 08/356 relating to the rules applicable toundertakings for collective investments when they use certaintechniques and instruments relating to transferable securities andmoney market instruments (“CSSF Circular 08/356”) and (iii) anyother applicable laws, regulations, circulars or CSSF positions. Asignificant proportion of the income generated from the securitieslending program is credited to participating Sub-Funds, with aportion of the income shared between the Management Companyfor oversight of the program and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. for itsrole as securities lending agent for the Fund. The net revenues ofthe Fund arising from securities lending transactions are specifiedin the semi-annual and annual reports published by the Fund.Borrowers of securities lent by participating Sub-Funds areapproved by the Management Company after appropriateassessment of such borrowers’ status and financial standing. Cashcollateral received in the context of the use of such techniques andinstruments may be reinvested, pursuant to the laws, regulationsand pronouncements above, in:(a) shares or units in money market UCIs calculating a daily netasset value and being assigned a rating of AAA or itsequivalent;(b) short-term bank deposits;(c) money market instruments as defined in Directive 2007/16/ECof 19 March 2007;(d) short-term bonds issued or guaranteed by a EU Member State,Switzerland, Canada, Japan or the United States or by theirlocal authorities or by supranational institutions andundertakings with EU, regional or world-wide scope;(e) bonds issued or guaranteed by first class issuers offering anadequate liquidity, and(f) reverse repurchase agreement transactions according to theprovisions described under section I (C) (a) of CSSF Circular08/356.To the extent required by CSSF Circular 08/356, reinvestments ofsuch cash collateral must be taken into account for the calculationof the Sub-Fund’s global exposure.Use of the aforesaid techniques and instruments involves certainrisks (See “Appendix IV – Risk Factors”) and there can be noassurance that the objective sought to be obtained from such usewill be achieved.Appendix II 35

Therefore, in strong stockmarket conditions, the Sub-Fund can be expected to seeksignificant exposure to equities, but when stock markets are weak,the Sub-Fund may seek to lower equity exposure, focusing insteadon bonds and cash. In extreme situations the Sub-Fund may beinvested 100% in equities or may hold no equities at all.The Sub-Fund may therefore be suited to experienced investorslooking for a higher risk investment strategy to complement anexisting core portfolio, or for diversified investors looking to boostlong-term returns who are also comfortable with the extra risksinherent in the Sub-Fund. Investors in this Sub-Fund should have atleast a three-to-five year investment horizon.Risk Profile• The Sub-Fund can invest in equities, leaving investors exposedto stock market fluctuations and the financial performance ofthe companies held in the Sub-Fund’s portfolio.

The Sub-Fund can also be used as a standaloneinvestment for investors looking to produce steady capitalgrowth. The Sub-Fund is managed against a cash benchmark.Because of the additional volatility associated with equities andconvertible bonds, investors in this Sub-Fund should also have atleast a two-to-three year investment horizon.Risk Profile• This balanced Sub-Fund invests primarily in investment gradebonds, both government and non-government, but also hasexposure to unrated bonds, convertible bonds, fixed andfloating rate debt securities, money market instruments,equities and cash.• Because bonds and convertible bonds pay a regular incomeand have a fixed maturity date, their volatility is expected to berelatively low.• The risk to initial investment capital is relatively low. However,because of the Sub-Fund’s exposure to equities, risks arehigher than in Sub-Funds that invest only in bonds.• The Sub-Fund may use financial derivative instruments toachieve its investment objective.• This Sub-Fund is denominated in EUR and when assets aredenominated in other currencies, these will generally behedged back into EUR.• The risks associated with the derivative instruments listed inthe Investment Policy above are further detailed in AppendixIV – Risk Factors.62 Appendix III

It operates by pooling investors’ assets across anumber of high-quality money market instruments, aiming forhigh levels of security and liquidity while seeking a competitiveyield.• Because the Sub-Fund’s underlying investments are primarily inshort-term securities, often issued by the government or bybanks, the risk to investors’ capital is low.• This Sub-Fund is denominated in EUR, but may at times havenon-EUR exposure• Non-EUR denominated investors are exposed to currency risk asthe Sub-Fund’s underlying assets are denominated mainly inEUR.Investment ManagerJPMorgan Asset Management (UK) Limited.Fees and ExpensesAnnual Management Operating and RedemptionShare Class Initial Charge and Advisory Fee Administrative Expenses ChargeJPM Euro Liquid Market A 3.0% 1 0.40% 0.25% 0.50% 1JPM Euro Liquid Market B Nil 0.40% 0.15% NilJPM Euro Liquid Market C Nil 0.15% 2 0.10% NilJPM Euro Liquid Market D 3.0% 1 0.50% 0.25% 0.50% 1JPM Euro Liquid Market I Nil 0.15% 2 0.06% NilJPM Euro Liquid Market X Nil Nil 0.05% Max Nil1With effect from 1 July 2010, the Initial Charge and Redemption Charge will be nil.2With effect from 1 July 2010, the Annual Management and Advisory Fee will increase from 0.15% to 0.16%.Appendix III 91


Appendix IV: Risk FactorsThe information contained in this Appendix should be read inconjunction with the full text of the Prospectus of which this formsan integral part.GeneralThe following statements are intended to inform investors of theuncertainties and risks associated with investments andtransactions in transferable securities and other financialinstruments. Investors should remember that the price of Sharesand any income from them may fall as well as rise and thatShareholders may not get back the full amount invested. Pastperformance is not necessarily a guide to future performance andShares should be regarded as a medium to long-term investment.Where the currency of the relevant Sub-Fund varies from theinvestor’s home currency, or where the currency of the relevantSub-Fund varies from the currencies of the markets in which theSub-Fund invests, there is the prospect of additional loss (or theprospect of additional gain) to the investor greater than the usualrisks of investment.RegulatoryThe Fund is governed by EU legislation, specifically EC Directive2001/107 and 108, and is a Luxembourg domiciled UCITS. Investorsshould note that the regulatory protections provided by their localregulatory authorities may differ or may not apply. Investorsshould consult their financial or other professional adviser forfurther information in this area.Investment ObjectiveInvestors should be fully aware of the investment objectives of theSub-Funds as these may state that the Sub-Funds may invest on alimited basis in areas which are not naturally associated with thename of the Sub-Fund. These other markets and/or assets may actwith more or less volatility than the core investments andperformance will, in part, be dependent on these investments. Allinvestments involve risks and there can be no guarantee againstloss resulting from an investment in any Shares, nor can there beany assurance that a Sub-Fund’s investment objectives will beattained in respect of its overall performance. Investors shouldtherefore ensure (prior to any investment being made) that theyare satisfied with the risk profile of the overall objectives disclosed.Suspension of Share dealingsInvestors are reminded that in certain circumstances their right toredeem Shares may be suspended (see “General Information –Temporary Suspension of Issues, Redemptions and Switches”).WarrantsWhen the Fund invests in warrants, the values of these warrantsare likely to fluctuate more than the prices of the underlyingsecurities because of the greater volatility of warrant prices.Futures and OptionsUnder certain conditions, the Fund may use options and futures onsecurities, indices and interest rates, as described in “Appendix II -Investment Restrictions and Powers”, “Investment Restrictions andPowers” for the purpose of efficient portfolio management. Also,where appropriate, the Fund may hedge market and currency risksusing futures, options or forward foreign exchange contracts. Inorder to facilitate efficient portfolio management and to betterreplicate the performance of the benchmark, the Fund may finally,for a purpose other than hedging, invest in derivative instruments.The Fund may only invest within the limits set out in “Appendix II -Investment Restrictions and Powers”.Transactions in futures carry a high degree of risk. The amount ofthe initial margin is small relative to the value of the futurescontract so that transactions are “leveraged” or “geared”. Arelatively small market movement will have a proportionatelylarger impact which may work for or against the investor. Theplacing of certain orders which are intended to limit losses tocertain amounts may not be effective because market conditionsmay make it impossible to execute such orders.Transactions in options also carry a high degree of risk. Selling(“writing” or “granting”) an option generally entails considerablygreater risk than purchasing options. Although the premiumreceived by the seller is fixed, the seller may sustain a loss well inexcess of that amount. The seller will also be exposed to the risk ofthe purchaser exercising the option and the seller will be obligedeither to settle the option in cash or to acquire or deliver theunderlying investment. If the option is “covered” by the sellerholding a corresponding position in the underlying investment or afuture on another option, the risk may be reduced.Sub-Funds Investing in Commodity Index InstrumentsInvestments which grant an exposure to commodities involveadditional risks than those resulting from traditional investments.More specifically, political, military and natural events mayinfluence the production and trading of commodities and, as aconsequence, influence financial instruments which grant exposureto commodities; terrorism and other criminal activities may havean influence on the availability of commodities and therefore alsonegatively impact financial instruments which grant exposure tocommodities.Derivative RisksVolatilityDue to the low margin deposits normally required in tradingderivative instruments, a high degree of leverage is typical fortrading in derivatives instruments. As a result, a relatively smallprice movement in a derivative contract may result in substantiallosses to the investor. Investment in derivative transactions mayresult in losses in excess of the amount invested.Risk of Trading Credit Default Swaps (“CDS”)The price at which a CDS trades may differ from the price of theCDS’ referenced security. In adverse market conditions, the basis(difference between the spread on bonds and the spread of CDS)can be significantly more volatile than the CDS’ referencedsecurities.Particular Risks of Exchange Traded Derivative TransactionsSuspensions of TradingEach securities exchange or commodities contract market typicallyhas the right to suspend or limit trading in all securities or92 Appendix IV


commodities which it lists. Such a suspension would render itimpossible for the Sub-Funds, to liquidate positions and,accordingly, expose the Fund to losses and delays in its ability toredeem Shares.Particular Risks of OTC Derivative TransactionsAbsence of regulation; counterparty defaultIn general, there is less governmental regulation and supervisionof transactions in the OTC markets (in which currencies, forward,spot and option contracts, credit default swaps, total return swapsand certain options on currencies are generally traded) than oftransactions entered into on organised exchanges. In addition,many of the protections afforded to participants on someorganised exchanges, such as the performance guarantee of anexchange clearinghouse, may not be available in connection withOTC transactions. Therefore, any Sub Fund entering into OTCtransactions will be subject to the risk that its direct counterpartywill not perform its obligations under the transactions and that theSub Fund will sustain losses. A Sub Fund will only enter intotransactions with counterparties which it believes to becreditworthy, and may reduce the exposure incurred in connectionwith such transactions through the receipt of letters of credit orcollateral from certain counterparties. Regardless of the measuresthe Fund may seek to implement to reduce counterparty creditrisk, however, there can be no assurance that a counterparty willnot default or that the Fund will not sustain losses as a result.Liquidity; requirement to performFrom time to time, the counterparties with which the Fund effectstransactions might cease making markets or quoting prices incertain of the instruments. In such instances, the Fund might beunable to enter into a desired transaction in currencies, creditdefault swaps or total return swaps or to enter into an offsettingtransaction with respect to an open position, which mightadversely affect its performance. Further, in contrast to exchangetraded instruments, forward, spot and option contracts oncurrencies do not provide the Investment Manager with thepossibility to offset the Fund’s obligations through an equal andopposite transaction. For this reason, in entering into forward, spotor options contracts, the Fund may be required, and must be able,to perform its obligations under the contracts.Necessity for counterparty trading relationshipsAs noted above, participants in the OTC market typically enter intotransactions only with those counterparties which they believe tobe sufficiently creditworthy, unless the counterparty providesmargin, collateral, letters of credit or other credit enhancements.The Fund may, but does not currently intend to, enter intotransactions on the basis of credit facilities established on behalf ofany company within JPMorgan Chase & Co. While the Fund and theInvestment Manager believe that the Fund will be able to establishmultiple counterparty business relationships to permit the Fund toeffect transactions in the OTC market and other counterpartymarkets (including credit default swaps, total return swaps andother swaps market as applicable), there can be no assurance thatit will be able to do so. An inability to establish or maintain suchrelationships would potentially increase the Fund’s counterpartycredit risk, limit its operations and could require the Fund to ceaseinvestment operations or conduct a substantial portion of suchoperations in the futures markets. Moreover, the counterpartieswith which the Fund expects to establish such relationships will notbe obligated to maintain the credit lines extended to the Fund, andsuch counterparties could decide to reduce or terminate suchcredit lines at their discretion.Reverse Repurchase Agreements and sale with right ofrepurchase transactions in which the Fund acts as purchaser:In the event of the failure of the counterparty with which cash hasbeen placed, there is the risk that the value of the collateralreceived may be less than the cash placed out which may be dueto factors including inaccurate pricing of the collateral, adversemarket movements in the value of the collateral, a deterioration inthe credit rating of the issuer of the collateral, or the illiquidity ofthe market in which the collateral is traded. Locking cash intransactions of significant size or duration, delays in recoveringcash placed out, or difficulty in realising collateral may restrict theability of the Sub-Fund to meet redemption requests or fundsecurity purchases.Repurchase Agreements and sale with right of repurchasetransactions in which the Fund acts as seller:In the event of the failure of the counterparty with which collateralhas been placed, there is the risk that the value of the collateralplaced with the counterparty is higher than the cash originallyreceived, which may be due to factors including that the value ofthe collateral placed usually exceeds the cash received, marketappreciation of the value of the collateral, or an improvement inthe credit rating of the issuer of the collateral. Locking investmentpositions in transactions of significant size or duration, or delays inrecovering collateral placed out, may restrict the ability of the Sub-Fund to meet delivery obligations under security sales or paymentobligations arising from redemptions requests.Securities LendingSecurities lending involves counterparty risk, including the risk thatthe loaned securities may not be returned or returned in a timelymanner and/or at a loss of rights in the collateral if the borroweror the lending agent defaults or fails financially. This risk isincreased when a Sub-Fund’s loans are concentrated with a singleor limited number of borrowers. Should the borrower of securitiesfail to return securities lent by a Sub-Fund, there is a risk that thecollateral received may be realised at a value lower than the valueof the securities lent out, whether due to inaccurate pricing of thecollateral, adverse market movements in the value of thecollateral, a deterioration in the credit rating of the issuer of thecollateral, or the illiquidity of the market in which the collateral istraded. A Sub-Fund may reinvest the cash collateral received fromborrowers. There is a risk that the value or return of the reinvestedcash collateral may decline below the amount owed to thoseborrowers, and those losses may exceed the amount earned by theSub-Fund on lending the securities. Delays in the return ofsecurities on loan may restrict the ability of the Sub-Fund to meetdelivery obligations under security sales or payment obligationsarising from redemption requests.Appendix IV 93


Sub-Funds Investing in Smaller CompaniesSub-Funds which invest in smaller companies may fluctuate invalue more than other Sub-Funds because of the greater potentialvolatility of Share prices of smaller companies.Sub-Funds Investing in Technology Related CompaniesSub-Funds which invest in technology related companies mayfluctuate in value more than other Sub-Funds because of thegreater potential volatility of share prices of technology relatedcompanies.Sub-Funds Investing in Concentrated PortfoliosSub-Funds which invest in a concentrated portfolio may be subjectto greater volatility than those Sub-Funds with a more diversifiedportfolio.Asset Backed Securities (ABS) and Mortgage BackedSecurities (MBS)Certain Sub-Funds may have exposure to a wide range of assetbacked securities (including asset pools in credit card loans, autoloans, residential and commercial mortgage loans, collateralisedmortgage obligations and collateralised debt obligations), agencymortgage pass-through securities and covered bonds. Theobligations associated with these securities may be subject togreater credit, liquidity and interest rate risk compared to otherfixed income securities such as government issued bonds.ABS and MBS are securities that entitle the holders thereof toreceive payments that are primarily dependent upon the cash flowarising from a specified pool of financial assets such as residentialor commercial mortgages, motor vehicle loans or credit cards.ABS and MBS are often exposed to extension and prepayment risksthat may have a substantial impact on the timing and size of thecashflows paid by the securities and may negatively impact thereturns of the securities. The average life of each individualsecurity may be affected by a large number of factors such as theexistence and frequency of exercise of any optional redemptionand mandatory prepayment, the prevailing level of interest rates,the actual default rate of the underlying assets, the timing ofrecoveries and the level of rotation in the underlying assets.High Yield BondsInvestment in fixed income securities is subject to interest rate,sector, security and credit risks. Compared to investment gradebonds, high yield bonds are normally lower-rated securities andwill usually offer higher yields to compensate for the reducedcreditworthiness or increased risk of default that these securitiescarry.Investment Grade BondsCertain Sub-Funds may invest in investment grade bonds.Investment grade bonds are assigned ratings within the top ratingcategories by rating agencies (Fitch, Moody’s and/or Standard &Poor’s) on the basis of the creditworthiness or risk of default of abond issue. Rating agencies review, from time to time, suchassigned ratings and bonds may therefore be downgraded in ratingif economic circumstances impact the relevant bond issues.Sub-Funds Investing in Participation NotesInvestment in Participation Notes involves an OTC transaction witha third party. Therefore Sub-Funds investing in Participation Notesare exposed not only to movements in the value of the underlyingequity, but also to the risk of counterparty default, which may inthe event of counterparty default result in the loss of the fullmarket value of the equity.Emerging and Less Developed MarketsIn emerging and less developed markets, in which some of theSub-Funds will invest, the legal, judicial and regulatoryinfrastructure is still developing but there is much legal uncertaintyboth for local market participants and their overseas counterparts.Some markets may carry higher risks for investors who shouldtherefore ensure that, before investing, they understand the risksinvolved and are satisfied that an investment is suitable as part oftheir portfolio. Investments in emerging and less developedmarkets should be made only by sophisticated investors orprofessionals who have independent knowledge of the relevantmarkets, are able to consider and weigh the various riskspresented by such investments, and have the financial resourcesnecessary to bear the substantial risk of loss of investment in suchinvestments.Countries with emerging and less developed markets include, butare not limited to (1) countries that have an emerging stock marketin a developing economy as defined by the International FinanceCorporation, (2) countries that have low or middle incomeeconomies according to the World Bank, and (3) countries listed inWorld Bank publication as developing. The list of emerging and lessdeveloped markets is subject to continuous change; broadly theyinclude any country or region other than the United States ofAmerica, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Zealand and WesternEurope. The following statements are intended to illustrate therisks which in varying degrees are present when investing inemerging and less developed markets. Investors should note thatthe statements do not offer advice on suitability of investments.(A) Political and Economic Risks• Economic and/or political instability could lead to legal, fiscaland regulatory changes or the reversal of legal / fiscal /regulatory / market reforms. Assets could be compulsorily reacquiredwithout adequate compensation.• A country’s external debt position could lead to suddenimposition of taxes or exchange controls.• High interest and inflation rates can mean that businesses havedifficulty in obtaining working capital.• Local management may be inexperienced in operatingcompanies in free market conditions.• A country may be heavily dependent on its commodity andnatural resource exports and is therefore vulnerable toweaknesses in world prices for these products.94 Appendix IV


(B) Legal Environment• The interpretation and application of decrees and legislativeacts can be often contradictory and uncertain particularly inrespect of matters relating to taxation.• Legislation could be imposed retrospectively or may be issuedin the form of internal regulations not generally available tothe public.• Judicial independence and political neutrality cannot beguaranteed.• State bodies and judges may not adhere to the requirements ofthe law and the relevant contract. There is no certainty thatinvestors will be compensated in full or at all for any damageincurred.• Recourse through the legal system may be lengthy andprotracted.(C) Accounting Practices• The accounting, auditing and financial reporting system maynot accord with international standards.• Even when reports have been brought into line withinternational standards, they may not always contain correctinformation.• Obligations on companies to publish financial information mayalso be limited.(D) Shareholder Risk• Existing legislation may not yet be adequately developed toprotect the rights of minority Shareholders.• There is generally no concept of any fiduciary duty toShareholders on the part of management.• Liability for violation of what Shareholder rights there are, maybe limited.(E) Market and Settlement Risks• The securities markets in some countries lack the liquidity,efficiency and regulatory and supervisory controls of moredeveloped markets.• Lack of liquidity may adversely affect the ease of disposal ofassets. The absence of reliable pricing information in aparticular security held by a Sub-Fund may make it difficult toassess reliably the market value of assets.• The Share register may not be properly maintained and theownership or interest may not be (or remain) fully protected.• Registration of securities may be subject to delay and duringthe period of delay it may be difficult to prove beneficialownership of the securities.• The provision for custody of assets may be less developed thanin other more mature markets and thus provides an additionallevel of risk for the Sub-Funds.• Settlement procedures may be less developed and still be inphysical as well as in dematerialised form.(F) Price Movement and Performance• Factors affecting the value of securities in some marketscannot easily be determined.• Investment in securities in some markets carries a high degreeof risk and the value of such investments may decline or bereduced to zero.(G) Currency Risk• Conversion into foreign currency or transfer from somemarkets of proceeds received from the sale of securitiescannot be guaranteed.• Investors might be exposed to currency risk when investing inShare Classes that are not hedged to the investor’s referencecurrency.• Exchange rate fluctuations may also occur between the tradedate for a transaction and the date on which the currency isacquired to meet settlement obligations.(H) TaxationInvestors should note in particular that the proceeds from thesale of securities in some markets or the receipt of anydividends and other income may be or may become subject totax, levies, duties or other fees or charges imposed by theauthorities in that market, including taxation levied bywithholding at source. Tax law and practice in certain countriesinto which the Fund invests or may invest in the future (inparticular Russia, China and other emerging markets) is notclearly established. It is therefore possible that the currentinterpretation of the law or understanding of practice mightchange, or that the law might be changed with retrospectiveeffect. As a result, the Fund could become subject to additionaltaxation in such countries that is not anticipated either at thedate of this Prospectus or when investments are made, valuedor disposed of.(I) Execution and Counterparty RiskIn some markets there may be no secure method of deliveryagainst payment which would minimise the exposure tocounterparty risk. It may be necessary to make payment on apurchase or delivery on a sale before receipt of the securitiesor, as the case may be, sale proceeds.(J) NomineeshipThe legislative framework in some markets is only beginning todevelop the concept of legal/formal ownership and ofbeneficial ownership or interest in securities. Consequently thecourts in such markets may consider that any nominee orcustodian as registered holder of securities would have fullownership thereof and that a beneficial owner may have norights whatsoever in respect thereof.Appendix IV 95


Investments in ChinaUnder the prevailing regulations in the People's Republic of China("PRC"), foreign investors can invest in China A Shares throughinstitutions that have obtained Qualified Foreign InstitutionalInvestor ("QFII") status in the PRC. The current QFII regulationsimpose strict restrictions (including rules on investmentrestrictions, minimum investment holding period and repatriationof principle and profits) on China A Share investment.In extreme circumstances, a Sub-Fund may incur losses due tolimited investment capabilities, or may not be able to fullyimplement or pursue its investment objectives or strategy, due toQFII investment restrictions, illiquidity of the China A Sharesmarket, and/or delay or disruption in execution of trades or insettlement of trades.Investments by a Sub-Fund in the China A Share and otherpermissible securities denominated in Renminbi will be madethrough the QFII in Renminbi. Such Sub-Fund(s) and ShareClass(es) will be exposed to any fluctuation in the exchange ratebetween the Reference Currency of the relevant Sub-Fund and theRenminbi in respect of such investments.Investment in RussiaThe relative infancy of the Russian governmental and regulatoryframework may expose investors to various political and economicrisks. The Russian Securities Market from time to time may alsosuffer from a lack of market efficiency and liquidity which maycause higher price volatility and market disruptions.The Fund may invest in securities listed on the Russian TradingSystem (RTS) Stock Exchange and on the Moscow InterbankCurrency Exchange in Russia. Investments in Russia are currentlysubject to certain heightened risks with regard to the ownershipand custody of securities. In Russia shareholdings are evidenced byentries in the books of a company or its registrar (which is neitheran agent nor responsible to the Custodian). No certificatesrepresenting shareholdings in Russian companies will be held bythe Custodian or any of its local sub-custodians or in an effectivecentral depository system. As a result of this system and the lackof effective state regulation and enforcement, the Fund could loseits registration and ownership of Russian securities through fraud,negligence or even mere oversight. However, in recognition of suchrisks, the Russian sub-custodian of the Custodian is followingincreased “due diligence” procedures. The sub-custodian hasentered into agreements with Russian company registrars and willonly permit investment in those companies that have adequateregistrar procedures in place. In addition, the settlement risk isminimised as the sub-custodian will not release cash until registrarextracts have been received and checked. In addition, Russian debtsecurities have an increased custodial risk associated with them assuch securities are, in accordance with market practice, held incustody with Russian institutions which may not have adequateinsurance coverage to cover loss due to theft, destruction ordefault.Chase & Co. has, directly or indirectly, an interest which mayinvolve a potential conflict with the Management Company’s dutyto the Fund. Neither the Management Company nor JPMorganChase & Co. shall be liable to account to the Fund for any profit,commission or remuneration made or received from or by reasonof such transactions or any connected transactions nor will theManagement Company’s fees, unless otherwise provided, beabated.The Management Company will ensure that such transactions areeffected on terms which are not less favourable to the Fund than ifthe potential conflict had not existed.Such potential conflicting interests or duties may arise because theManagement Company or JPMorgan Chase & Co. may haveinvested directly or indirectly in the Fund.More specifically, the Management Company, under the rules ofconduct applicable to it, must try to avoid conflicts of interestsand, when they cannot be avoided, ensure that its clients (includingthe Fund) are fairly treated.Depositary ReceiptsInvestment into a given country may be made via directinvestments into that market or by depository receipts traded onother international exchanges in order to benefit from increasedliquidity in a particular security and other advantages. Adepository receipt admitted to the official listing on a stockexchange in an Eligible State or traded on a Regulated Market maybe deemed an eligible transferable security regardless of theeligibility of the market in which the security to which it relatesnormally trades.ListingWhere the Shares are listed, the exchanges on which those Sharesare listed take no responsibility for the contents of this document,make no representations as to its accuracy or completeness andexpressly disclaim any liability whatsoever for any kind of lossarising from or in reliance upon any part of the contents of thisdocument.This Prospectus includes particulars given in compliance with theListing Regulations of the exchanges on which the Shares are listedfor the purpose of giving information with regard to the Fund. TheDirectors collectively and individually accept full responsibility forthe accuracy of the information contained in this Prospectus andconfirm, having made all reasonable inquiries, that to the best oftheir knowledge and belief there are no other facts the omission ofwhich would make any statement herein misleading.The foregoing risk factors do not purport to be a completeexplanation of the risks involved in investing in the Shares.Prospective investors should read the entire Prospectus andconsult with their legal, tax and financial advisors before makingany decision to invest in the Fund.Potential Conflicts of InterestThe Management Company and JPMorgan Chase & Co. may effecttransactions in which the Management Company or JPMorgan96 Appendix IV


Appendix V: Calculation ofPerformance FeesThe information contained in this Appendix should be read inconjunction withthe full text of the Prospectus of which thisforms an integral part.1. Calculation of Performance Fee by application of a HighWater MarkWhere the Management Company is entitled to receive from thenet assets of each Sub-Fund or Share Class, as set out in the tableunder “Performance Fees” in “Appendix III – Sub-Fund Details”, anannual performance-based incentive fee (the “Performance Fee”),this Performance Fee will be equal to the given percentage (the“Performance Fee Rate”, as set out in the same table) of the ShareClass Return (defined in 1.1 below) in excess of the greater of theBenchmark Return (as set out in 1.3 below) and the High WaterMark Return (defined in 1.2 below), where applicable, (the “ExcessReturn”), calculated as described below. On each Valuation Day, anaccrual for the previous Valuation Day’s, Performance Fee is made,when appropriate, and the Performance Fee is paid whereapplicable for each class of the relevant Sub-Fund on the lastValuation Day of the Fund’s accounting year. In the case ofliquidation or merger of a Sub-Fund to which a performance fee isapplicable, the performance fee will be paid on the last ValuationDay before its liquidation or merger. Pursuant to the provisions ofthe relevant investment management agreement, the InvestmentManager may be entitled to receive the Performance Fee from theManagement Company.1.1 Share Class ReturnOn each Valuation Day, the net asset value of each Share Class ofeach Sub-Fund for which a Performance Fee applies, whichincludes an accrual for all fees and expenses (including the AnnualManagement and Advisory Fee, and the Operating andAdministrative Expenses to be borne by the relevant Class at therate set out in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details” to this Prospectus),is adjusted for any dividend distributions and for subscriptions andredemptions dealt with on that Valuation Day, if any, and anyPerformance Fee accrued through that day in respect of suchShare Class is added back (the “Adjusted Net Asset Value”). Forpurposes of calculating the Performance Fee, the “Share ClassReturn” is computed on each Valuation Day, as the differencebetween the net asset value (adjusted by adding back any accruedPerformance Fee) on such day and the Adjusted Net Asset Value onthe previous Valuation Day, expressed as a return based on theprevious Valuation Day’s, Adjusted Net Asset Value for that ShareClass.1.2 High Water Mark ReturnA high water mark is the point after which a Performance Feebecomes payable. The high water mark will be the higher of theNAV at launch of the Share Class, or the NAV at which the lastPerformance Fee has been paid.The “High Water Mark Return” is defined as the return necessary,since the start of the accounting year, to equal the Net Asset Valueper Share of each Share Class of each Sub-Fund on the lastValuation Day of the last accounting year in which a PerformanceFee was charged. If no Performance Fee has been charged sincethe launch of the Share Class, the High Water Mark Return is thereturn necessary to equal the initial Net Asset Value per Share ofthat Share Class.1.3 Benchmark ReturnThe Benchmark Return is determined on each Valuation Day bymultiplying the benchmark which prevailed on the previousValuation Day, by the actual number of days elapsed since the lastValuation Day divided by 365.For Shares in the X Share Class, the Benchmark Return isdetermined on each Valuation Day by multiplying (benchmark +0.75%) which prevailed on the previous Valuation Day by the actualnumber of days elapsed since the last Valuation Day divided by365. The benchmark is determined on the basis of quotationsavailable from independent sources, rounded upwards to thenearest four decimal places and computed in accordance withprevailing market practices.1.4 Performance Fee AccrualsIf the Share Class Return exceeds the Benchmark Return and thecumulative Share Class Return exceeds the High Water MarkReturn, the Performance Fee accrual is increased by thePerformance Fee Rate multiplied by the Excess Return multipliedby the previous Valuation Day’s Adjusted Net Asset Value for thatShare Class. If the Share Class Return does not exceed theBenchmark Return, the Performance Fee accrual is reduced (butnot below zero) by the Performance Fee Rate multiplied by thenegative Excess Return multiplied by the previous Valuation Day’sAdjusted Net Asset Value for that Share Class. Following a periodof negative Excess Return whereby the Performance Fee accrualhas been reduced to zero, no new Performance Fee is accrued untilsuch time as the cumulative Share Class Return exceeds thegreater of the High Water Mark Return and the cumulativeBenchmark Return since the beginning of the Company accountingyear. The Performance Fee accrued on any Valuation Day isreflected in the Net Asset Value per Share on the basis of whichsubscriptions and redemptions may be accepted.Example of calculationDay Change in NAV - Change in Benchmark = Difference X Performance fee rate = Daily Accrual +/- Cumulative Accrual1 +1.0% - +0.015% = +0.985% X 10% = +0.098% + +0.098%2 +0.2% - +0.015% = +0.185% X 10% = +0.018% + +0.116%3 -0.50% - +0.015% = -0.515% X 10% = -0.051% - +0.065%Appendix V 97


1.5 Effect of Performance Fee AccrualsThe Performance Fee is calculated on each Valuation Day but isaccrued within the Net Asset Value per Share one day in arrears(trade date plus one day). During periods of market volatility,unusual fluctuations may occur in the Net Asset Value per Share ofeach Share Class for which a Performance Fee is charged. Thesefluctuations may happen where the impact of a Performance Feecauses the Net Asset Value per Share to be reduced whilst thereturns from underlying assets have increased. Conversely, theimpact of a negative Performance Fee can cause the Net AssetValue per Share to be increased whilst the underlying assets havedecreased.1.6 Computation of Performance FeesPerformance Fee computations are made by the AdministrativeAgent and audited annually by the auditors of the Company. TheBoard may make such adjustments of accruals as it deemsappropriate to ensure that the accrual represents fairly andaccurately the Performance Fee liability that may eventually bepayable by the Sub-Fund or Class to the Management Company.1.7 Annual Payment of Performance FeesThe annual Performance Fee payable is equal to the PerformanceFee accrued through to close of business on the last Valuation Dayof the Company’s accounting year. Performance Fees payable tothe Management Company in any accounting year are notrefundable in any subsequent accounting years.2. Calculation of Performance Fee by application of a Claw-Back MechanismSome Sub-Funds may follow a Claw-Back Mechanism for thecalculation of their Performance Fees. The purpose of the Claw-Back Mechanism is to ensure that the Management Company doesnot benefit from periods of underperformance, and will onlybecome entitled to a Performance Fee when it outperforms thecumulative Benchmark Return (as defined in Appendix V) accruedsince the last Valuation Day of the last year in which aPerformance Fee was paid.2.1 Daily Share Class ReturnOn each Valuation Day, the “Adjusted Net Asset Value” is calculatedin respect of each Share Class of any Sub-Fund for which aPerformance Fee applies. The Adjusted Net Asset Value is the netasset value (which includes an accrual for all fees and expenses,including the Annual Management and Advisory Fee, and theOperating and Administrative Expenses to be borne by the relevantShare Class at the rate set out in “Appendix III - Sub-Fund Details”to this Prospectus), adjusted for any dividend distributions and anysubscriptions and redemptions dealt with on that Valuation Day,and any Performance Fee accrued throughout that Valuation Day.The “Daily Share Class Return” is calculated on each ValuationDay,as the difference between the net asset value (adjusted byadding back any accrued Performance Fee), on such day and theAdjusted Net Asset Value on the previous Valuation Day, expressedas a percentage of the previous Valuation Day’s, Adjusted Net AssetValue for that Share Class.2.2 Daily Benchmark ReturnThe “Daily Benchmark Return” is determined on each ValuationDay by taking the percentage difference between the benchmarkon such Valuation Day and the benchmark on the previousValuation Day.For Shares in the X Share Class, the Daily Benchmark Return isdetermined on each Valuation Day by taking the percentagedifference between the benchmark on such Valuation Day and thebenchmark on the previous Valuation Day, plus (0.75% divided by365) multiplied by the actual number of calendar days since thelast Valuation Day.2.3 Claw-Back MechanismFollowing an accounting year in which no Performance Fee hasbeen charged, no Performance Fee will accrue until such time asthe cumulative Daily Share Class Return (since the last ValuationDay of the last accounting year in which a Performance Fee wascharged) exceeds the cumulative Daily Benchmark Return (sincethe last Valuation Day of the last accounting year in which aPerformance Fee was charged).If no Performance Fee has been charged since the launch of theShare Class, no Performance Fee will accrue until such time as thecumulative Daily Share Class Return (since the launch of that ShareClass) exceeds the cumulative Daily Benchmark Return accruedsince the launch of that Share Class.2.4 Excess ReturnOn any Valuation Day, the “Excess Return” is given by thedifference between the Daily Share Class Return and the DailyBenchmark Return. If, however, on any Valuation Day thedifference between the Daily Share Class Return and the DailyBenchmark Return exceeds the difference between the cumulativeDaily Share Class Return (since the last Valuation Day of the lastaccounting year in which a Performance Fee was charged) and thecumulative Daily Benchmark Return (since the last Valuation Day ofthe last accounting year in which a Performance Fee was charged),then the Excess Return for that Valuation Day is given by thedifference between the cumulative Daily Share Class Return andthe cumulative Daily Benchmark Return.Additionally, if on any Valuation Day the difference between thecumulative Daily Share Class Return and the cumulative DailyBenchmark Return is zero or negative then the Excess Return forthat Valuation Day will also be zero.2.5 Performance Fee AccrualsThe “Daily Performance Fee Accrual” is calculated each ValuationDay, and is equal to the Performance Fee Rate multiplied by theExcess Return multiplied by the previous Valuation Day’s AdjustedNet Asset Value for that Share Class.Subject to the provisions of the Claw-Back Mechanism described in2.3 above, if on any Valuation Day the Daily Share Class Returnexceeds the Daily Benchmark Return, the Performance Fee accrualis increased by the amount of the Daily Performance Fee Accrual”.If however on any Valuation Day the Daily Share Class Return doesnot exceed the Daily Benchmark Return, the Performance Fee98 Appendix V


accrual is correspondingly reduced by the amount of that ValuationDay’s Daily Performance Fee Accrual. The Performance Fee accrualwill never be reduced below zero.No Performance Fee will be accrued until such time as thecumulative Daily Share Class Return (since the last Valuation Day ofthe last accounting year in which a Performance Fee was charged)exceeds the cumulative Daily Benchmark Return (since the lastValuation Day of the last accounting year in which a PerformanceFee was charged).Additionally, if at any time the Performance Fee accrual has beenreduced to zero, no new Performance Fee is accrued until suchtime as the cumulative Daily Share Class Return (since the lastValuation Day of the last accounting year in which a PerformanceFee was charged) exceeds the cumulative Daily Benchmark Return(since the last Valuation Day of the last accounting year in which aPerformance Fee was charged).The Performance Fee accrued on any Valuation Day is reflected inthe Net Asset Value per Share on the basis of which subscriptionsand redemptions may be accepted.2.6 Effect of Performance Fee AccrualsThe Performance Fee is calculated on each Valuation Day but isaccrued within the Net Asset Value per Share one day in arrears(that is, on the Business Day after the relevant Valuation Day).Consequently, during periods of market volatility, unusualfluctuations may occur in the Net Asset Value per Share of eachShare Class for which a Performance Fee is charged. Thesefluctuations may happen where the impact of a Performance Feecauses the Net Asset Value per Share to be reduced whilst thereturns from underlying assets have increased. Conversely, theimpact of a negative Performance Fee can cause the Net AssetValue per Share to be increased whilst the underlying assets havedecreased.2.7 Computation of Performance FeesPerformance Fees are calculated by the Administrative Agent andaudited annually by the independent auditors of the Fund. TheBoard may make such adjustments of accruals as it deemsappropriate to ensure that the accrual represents fairly andaccurately the Performance Fee liability that may eventually bepayable by the Sub-Fund or Share Class to the ManagementCompany.2.8 Annual Payment of Performance FeesThe annual Performance Fee payable is equal to the PerformanceFee accrued through to close of business on the last Valuation Dayof the Fund’s accounting year. Performance Fees payable to theManagement Company in any accounting year are not refundablein any subsequent accounting years.In the case of liquidation or merger of a Sub-Fund to which aperformance fee is applicable, the performance fee will be paid onthe last Valuation Day before its liquidation or merger.Example of calculationDay Change in NAV - Change in Benchmark = Difference X Performance fee rate = Daily Accrual +/- Cumulative Accrual1 +1.0% - +0.5% = +0.5% X 10% = +0.050% + +0.050%2 +0.5% - +0.75% = -0.25% X 10% = -0.025% - +0.025%3 -1.25% - -1.5% = +0.25% X 10% = +0.025% + +0.050%Appendix V 99
