For each fund managed by external investment managers Friends Provident International has set up its own mirror fund, which invests exclusively in
the underlying fund, apart from a proportionately small amount, which may be held as a cash balance. This means that the price of the Friends
Provident International fund will be different from the corresponding fund due to the cash holding and any differences in fund charges, but will move
mainly in line with it. These mirror funds can only be accessed using Friends Provident International product wrappers. Please note that there are
fees charged to investments in the mirror funds that will affect their return. For further details, please refer to the relevant fund information
