The prudent stock selection strategy taken within the equity component has been the main de-
tractor from performance over the past 12 months, but has not been strong enough to materially
reduce the underperformance over the 3 and 5 year periods.

Over the quarter, the portfolio was underweight Basic Resources, Financial Services and Insurance,
which were the main contributors to negative performance. The sectors that did contribute to
performance were overweight’s in Retail, Healthcare and other Equity, as well as an underweight
in Media. As stated, the portfolio remains underweight resources and financials and overweight                               *asset allocation based on untaxed fund class
industrials. The underweight resource exposure remains on the back of concern surrounding
global economic recovery and metal prices. Within financials, the majority of exposure remains to
banks. Within industrials exposure has been sector specific based on valuations.                                             Top ten equity holdings
