    F   irst of all a Happy New Year and Best Wishes for a healthy, happy and prosperous 2011! Whilst the
        Government’s focus seems to be firmly on the implementation of a wide range of cuts and changes
    in response to the Spending Review we have been busily focussing our efforts on investment manager
    strategies to evaluate the impact of Government policies. Whilst there is a great deal of controversy
    surrounding many of the Coalition’s plans, some fund managers are rubbing their hands with glee believing
    that many areas of the market will benefit because the Government will have to outsource many services
    to the private sector to reduce costs. Companies who had become reliant on Government investment are
    mostly being avoided for now and valuations have fallen accordingly, some managers are watching these
    companies too to see if there are opportunities for long term gains amongst the undervalued.

                                      ISA Portfolios 2011

For the 2010/2011 ISA season we have once again selected funds and created model portfolios for a range of risk
profiles and client objectives. Our ISA portfolios are designed to make the fund selection exercise less daunting
for those who are comfortable making the final decision themselves without receiving client specific independent
advice. Our portfolios are risk rated on a scale of one to ten, with one being the lowest degree of risk to your capital
and ten representing the highest degree of risk to your captial. Naturally you should remember that with all our
portfolios the price of units and the income from them (where relevant) can go down as well as up and your capital is
not guaranteed. These portfolios should only be used by those clients who feel sufficiently knowledgeable to make
their own investment decisions and deal with us on an execution only basis (where no advice is sought nor received).
Those investors requiring specific advice should contact us regarding our bespoke independent advisory service.



Our ISA portfolios can be purchased through either Cofunds or FundsNetwork either by application form and cheque
(telephone us for an application form on 01724 849481) or online at our website www.pantheonfinancialinvestments.
co.uk The minimum investment via Cofunds is £2,000 or £4,000 via FundsNetwork and for monthly savings the
minimum is £200 per month for Cofunds or £400 for FundsNetwork. Our usual high discounts apply to each purchase
thus vastly reducing initial charges and in some cases eliminating it altogether. Please see pages 9 to 13 for fund
descriptions of each selection within our portfolios.



Our extensive research has allowed us to select the funds within our ISA portfolios based on our comprehensive
research criteria with past performance, amongst many other factors, being one of the criteria used for fund selection.
However, there are obviously no guarantees that our chosen funds will continue to perform well which is why it is
imperative that portfolios are reviewed regularly - fund managers may depart, corporate structures can alter and
there may be a whole host of reasons why the fund chosen in the first instance is no longer suitable. We do select
funds where we believe it is far more likely that fund managers will remain in situ and we are delighted again to
note that our ISA selections from last year continue to feature amongst our Sector Recommendations since they
have maintained a high enough standard to pass our fund selection criteria. We continually monitor our Sector
Recommendations to ensure that our chosen funds offer the greatest potential within the risk constraints appropriate
to their sectors.

                    Balanced to Adventurous Growth
                    A balanced to adventurous portfolio will have a UK equity content combined with global equities and
                    additional asset classes to provide diversification and good prospects for capital growth. The key objective
                    is long-term capital appreciation combined with capital preservation. A balanced to adventurous investor
                    is willing to accept short-term volatility in order to achieve slightly higher returns.

                    Highly Speculative International Growth
                    A highly speculative portfolio will have a high UK and global equities content. The portfolio may also
                    include investment in potentially high-risk geographical and specialist market sectors. The key objective is
                    long-term capital appreciation. A highly speculative investor is willing to accept very high levels of short-
                    term volatility in order to increase the chance of considerably higher returns.

                Cautious Higher Income
                A cautious portfolio has a key objective over a long term period of capital preservation rather than
                appreciation, whilst also attempting to minimise short term volatility that may reduce investment returns.




                                                                                             Risk Rating 2/10
portfolio aim




                          asset
                       allocation


                This portfolio represents a cautious alternative to with profits bonds and is ideal for those who are gradually
                reducing their with profits bond holdings each year to fund ISA purchases. With a few exceptions, we have
                been actively encouraging people to move away from languishing with profits funds in view of their poor
                returns, lack of transparency and changing asset allocation. Additionally, some life offices have reduced
                financial strength and there have been many funds closed to new business with assets left dwindling
                in funds with very little future prospects. We believe this portfolio offers greater prospects for superior
                returns for those investors prepared to take the degree of risk associated with it. Obviously there are no
                guarantees that this portfolio will outperform the performance of any with profits bond, since this is
                an entirely different structure where the price of units can go down as well as up and your capital is
                not guaranteed. However, valuations are explicit rather than implicit.

    Jupiter Global Emerging Markets (GEM) Fund
                                   Initial charge:                           5.25%
                                   Annual management charge:                 1.5%

                                   Manager:                                  Kathryn Langridge



                        Strategy
                        Jupiter has launched a new GEM fund which will be managed by Kathryn Langridge
                        who joined the group last year. Kathryn needs very little introduction as previous head
                        of International Equity products and Global Emerging Markets at Invesco Perpetual, she
                        has more than 27 years of experience in the investment industry. Jupiter believe that
                        Emerging Markets appear structurally sound, with lower levels of GDP generally, strong
                        liquid banking systems and powerful demographics to drive future wealth creation.
                        These factors combined provide the opportunity for strong investment growth from the
                        region with investment in emerging companies in countries such as Brazil, Russia, China,
                        India, Africa, Turkey and Chile. Kathryn’s management style, where she strives to avoid
                        overpaying for stocks, sees her employing a bottom up stock picking process with a macro
                        overlay. As such the portfolio is highly likely to deviate from standard industry benchmarks
                        and will typically hold between sixty and seventy stocks with a maximum position of 5%
                        per holding. Speaking of her views regarding how the West will view Emerging Markets
                        in the future Langridge said ‘In the wake of the financial crisis, emerging markets have
                        demonstrated sustained resilience, in marked constraints to the sluggish growth profile
                        of the developed world. This resilience is testament to the profound structural changes
                        that have taken place across emerging markets. As perceived risk lessens so investment
                        is likely to increase and capital inflows will rise. However there will be greater pressure on
                        emerging market companies to demonstrate improved levels of corporate governance
                        and on emerging market Governments and central banks to exercise credible, consistent
                        judgement in terms of monetary police and economic management’ (source: Jupiter
                        October 2010).




    M&G Income Multi Asset Fund
                                   Initial charge:                           4%
                                   Annual management charge:                 1.35%
                                   Discount:                                 3.5% minimum
                                   Manager:                                  Stephen Andrews



             Strategy
           This multi asset fund will be managed by Steven Andrews, who is also deputy fund manager of M&G
           Cautious Multi Asset fund and M&G Managed fund. Andrews will invest across the range of asset classes
           as and when he sees fit, according to market conditions with a global remit. The fund will aim to achieve
           a 4% yield which Andrews also hopes to increase over time, of his strategy he said ‘I believe the only way
           you can consistently and successfully deliver a growing income for investors while aiming to preserve their
           capital is through a multi asset framework’ (source: M&G October 2010).

                               Fund & Managerial Changes

 GAM Global Diversified is to be open to new investors for the first time in
 over four years. Managed by Andrew Green this fund was recently closed to
 new business in an effort to stem inflows and protect performance as well as
 managing fund liquidity. The fund is presently £508 million in size (source: GAM
 November 2010) and GAM are offering investors the opportunity to invest a
 further £50 million. Green is presently optimistic regarding the prospects for
 Japan saying ‘Valuations in the Japanese market have now reached record                GAM Global Diversified
 lows, most strikingly in bank stocks and we are optimistic that the market
 will begin to benefit from the initial moves by the authorities to curb the
 relentless yen rise.’ Of his recent increased exposure to cash he explained
 ‘Our fear is that corporate earnings prospects will weaken as we approach
 2011 due to continued consumer deleveraging and pressure on Governments
 around the world to neutralise highly accommodative fiscal policy.’



                       Gartmore have suffered several high profile departures – Roger Guy, who was the head
                       of the firms European large cap team, is to leave the group and this follows the recent
 Gartmore              announcement that Dominic Rossie, Chief Investment Officer, will also be leaving. Gartmore
                       hit the headlines in 2010 when controversy resulted in the departure of one of their star
                       managers Guillaume Rambourg who is still allegedly subject to an FSA investigation.



  Jupiter have announced that Guy de Blonay, who is presently co manager of Jupiter Financial
  Opportunities, is to become lead manager of this flagship fund from 1st January 2011. Whilst we have
  a high regard for Guy’s stock picking skills this news does come as something of a blow since it means
  that legendary stock picker Philip Gibbs will no longer be co managing alongside de Blonay. Guy
  de Blonay joined Jupiter at the beginning of 2010 as co manager of Jupiter Financial Opportunities
  alongside Gibbs due to his previous track record managing New Star Global Financials during its
  heyday. Of the re structure Gibbs said ‘It has been an honour to have had such strong support from
  investors in the Jupiter Financial Opportunities fund for the past thirteen years but with the Jupiter
  Absolute Return Fund and Jupiter International Financials fund having attracted such significant
  assets since their launch and my continued responsibilities with the management of Jupiter Second          Jupiter
  Split, it is prudent to shortly hand the day to day management of the Jupiter Financial Opportunities
  fund to Guy. He has built a tremendous track record as a financials fund manager and has settled
  back into Jupiter extremely well and I am confident that his considerable investment skills will
  continue to add significant value for investors over the medium to long term.’ Whilst Jupiter have
  re assured investors that Gibbs will continue to retain oversight of all their financials’ portfolios we
  have placed this fund under review whilst we monitor any alterations de Blonay may make to the
  portfolio and the impact it will have on volatility and performance. Jupiter International Financials
  fund remains firmly placed amongst our Sector Recommendations under Gibbs’ management.




                              Martin Currie have merged their UK Growth fund into their Global fund in response
                              to their belief that UK investors have a reduced appetite for exposure to UK equities
                              whilst the trend for exposure to Global equities has continued. Furthermore
 Martin Currie                they explained that FTSE 100 Index companies do not always reflect UK centric
                              investment since, for example, ten companies within the Index have no UK based
                              operation and are considered to be UK stocks only by virtue of their listing in the UK.



Premier have removed veteran fund manager Bill Mott as the manager of their flagship
equity income funds, Income, Alpha Income and Monthly Income which were previously part
of the Credit Suisse stable of funds. In a move to bring management of their funds in house
they have hired ex Threadneedle manager Chris White to manage the funds. Whilst White
has previously managed equity funds for Threadneedle and Legg Mason he does not have                        Premier
anywhere near the length of experience that Mott has. We believe that this move is another
twist in the debacle that has surrounded the management of the ex Credit Suisse funds and
would feel far happier invested with alternative funds where managerial stability has been far
superior. Please see page 10 for our alternative equity income sector recommendations.

                                                                                                                        7
                       Pantheon Financial Management Ltd
                                Strategic Financial Planning Service
    Our clients will be familiar with our services and whilst those services remain popular we have noted an increasing desire (and
    need) from our clients to seek strategic financial planning advice on their wider affairs in addition to their investment portfolios.

    One of the main problems associated with providing independent financial planning (as opposed to pure investment planning),
    has been the unenviable reputation that the IFA sector has earned because of commission-hungry salesmen, offering little in the
    way of an ongoing and regular professional service to their clients. Ongoing strategic advice and a regular review service should
    be the mainstay of the financial planning process, something that has not gone unnoticed by our regulator, the Financial Services
    Authority.

    Our colleagues at Pantheon Financial Management Limited (PFML) have built a first class reputation for providing ongoing
    advice and services to their clients as independent financial planners and wealth management specialists. We introduced one of
    PFML’s Leeds based Directors, Richard Grant, in our Quarter 4 2010 Newsletter and would like to remind you that he is available
    to provide independent financial advice and investment solutions, thereby extending the range of services available to Pantheon
    Financial Investments Ltd (PFIL) clients.

    Richard and his team provide best advice to meet the financial requirements of individuals and corporate bodies (both directors
    and their staff), trustees of family trusts and pension schemes (and their membership).

    The PFML services that should be of particular interest to individuals (and trustees, where relevant) include:


                Retirement planning both in terms of saving for retirement and advice on the most appropriate way of
                securing pension benefits at retirement

                Investment planning (including offshore structures, where appropriate)

                Inheritance Tax and Capital Gains Tax planning

                Personal protection of wealth through, for example, life assurance and other relevant structures and
                advice

                Specialist services, such as long term care.

                Specialist investments where appropriate


    As stated, PFML’s focus is very much on providing personal advice and service tailored to a client’s needs rather than acting
    merely as transaction-based brokers. The key to the advisory services is for the adviser to have a clear understanding of the client,
    their aims, aspirations and objectives as well as a thorough understanding of their current financial position.

    The advisory process covers six stages:

            Stage 1:          identify the client’s needs and objectives.
            Stage 2:          gather personal and current financial information
            Stage 3:          prepare an analysis (in writing)
            Stage 4:          develop a plan of action and recommendations (in writing)
            Stage 5:          implement the client’s agreed personal plan
            Stage 6:          monitor progress through regular reviews and provide ongoing advice as circumstances

    One of the keys to the advisory process, and a clear distinction from the traditional way of providing financial advice, is Stage
    6 – the need to monitor progress and provide ongoing advice. The PFML service meets this need and is most definitely not
    just about the sale of financial products but also about developing a long term relationship to make sure that a client’s financial
    landscape continues to work the way they want it to and to be fully engaged in the advisory and investment management
    process.

    Tax efficiency is an important aspect of the financial planning process. Having previously qualified as a tax and trusts solicitor,
    Richard is well placed to take such matters into account. Richard and his team work closely with client’s existing professional
    advisers, where relevant, so as to ensure that the client derives the maximum benefit from the expertise available.

    PFML is remunerated either by way of fees where consultancy advice is required and/or commissions. All remuneration is agreed
    in advance.

    If you would like to learn more about the services provided by PFML then please contact Richard Grant (richard.grant@
    pantheonfinancial.co.uk / 0113 2006200) or speak to your usual contact if you would like to discuss a referral to any of the PFML
    services in greater detail.

                       Re-registration and Fund Supermarkets
     We have always advocated building a diverse portfolio as a prudent way to spread risk. However, when it comes to dealing
     with all the paperwork this involves it is a strategy that can soon lead to a proliferation of letters, brochures and statements
     sporadically throughout the year. As your investment portfolio is spread more widely, to diversify risk, so the mountain
     of paperwork increases and keeping up with tracking your portfolio takes up a vast amount of time. Therefore, although
     diversification is a key element of a well balanced portfolio, holding numerous investments does complicate administration
     which can become confusing - a simplified administration process would no doubt be a welcome change. Re-registering
     your fund with us, in conjunction with our chosen fund supermarkets, allows you to centralise the administration, providing
     a single valuation through which to track and monitor your holdings.

     Re-registering your investments into a single account offers you the following advantages:

               Centralised administration of your portfolio in one place providing a single valuation of your
          *    funds
               No need to sell and buy back in the majority of cases, so you are never out of the market while
          *    re-registration takes place
                Switches between funds are effected at only 0.25% initial charge and all internal switch transactions
          *     are completed within 48 hours (any exceptions will be detailed in the key features document)
                Internet functionality for those requiring it including valuations, geographical allocation and asset
          *     allocation tools

     If you re-register your holdings your funds will continue to be managed in exactly the same way, by the same fund manager
     – it is simply the administration of the fund that changes. The management of your portfolio will become much easier and
     the paperwork will be significantly reduced.

     Should you wish to re-register your investments please complete the Stage One Re-registration form on page 15 and we
     shall then pre populate the relevant applications forms for you and return them to you along with the relevant Key Features
     document and Simplified Prospectus.



        Discretionary Portfolio Management (DPM) Services
     Investors often reach a stage where they no longer wish to be involved in the management of their investment portfolios,
     either because of the ever increasing administrative burden or perhaps due to frail health or simply a general desire to
     hand the task over to a professional. In these circumstances we are able to offer a more bespoke service in conjunction
     with our chosen discretionary fund management services. In this way you are able to remove the stress of managing your
     own money whilst maintaining the relationship we have already established safe in the knowledge that your fund manager
     is managing your portfolio for you whilst we are monitoring the DPM service to ensure that it continues to maintain the
     highest standards available in the market.

     These services offer a more cohesive and active approach to the investment of your portfolio since you have your own
     individual fund manager who is responsible for your portfolio, tailored to your own specific needs and risk profile. The aim
     of your manager is to capture gains on the upside whilst insulating the portfolio from downside risk by investing in the most
     appropriate asset class depending on market conditions. The portfolio is actively managed, your fund manager allocates
     to sectors and asset classes as and when he sees fit allowing for far quicker reactions to market movements – if the fund
     manager believes that markets are going to be in a mostly downward trajectory it can be moved to pure cash within a
     matter of transactions. In addition to the ability to move to cash discretionary managers can employ the use of notes and
     derivatives to protect from market downsides in a far greater capacity than is available to a portfolio of collective funds
     held individually. Although your capital and the returns on it cannot be guaranteed, at the beginning of any given year the
     nature of some of the underlying instruments used does mean that the managers are able to anticipate average returns,
     within a certain range, based on certain market and asset assumptions. Your annual CGT allowance can be automatically
     utilised as well as annual ISA allowances.

     Historically these services had very high minimum entry levels but in view of our position within the market we have
     been able to negotiate far lower entry levels for our clients. We have thoroughly researched this area and would not be
     recommending the use of our chosen DPMs if we did not believe that the additional benefits can outweigh the additional
     costs. Whilst reviewing this space we have chosen DPMs who share our ethos for providing a bespoke, personal service
     which can be closely monitored by us to ensure that your portfolio continues to meet with your needs and objectives. We
     have selected companies where you can enjoy the support of institutional quality investment administration with twice
     yearly valuations and reports.

     If you are interested in exploring this option further please do not hesitate to contact us.
