fund - such as a benchmark approach and a greater use of the long term capital markets - has been adopted,

and generating an adequate long-term return, the Exchange Fund is managed as two distinct portfolios. The
first is a Backing Portfolio to ensure that the Monetary Base related to the Currency Board operations is fully
backed by highly liquid, short-term US dollar denominated interest-bearing securities. The second is an
Investment Portfolio (SWF) to preserve the fund's value for future generations in Hong Kong.
