  2. 2. The Case for Equity DividendsReturn: Dividend yields are currently higher than bond yields On top of the dividend flow, capital appreciation is targetedStability: Dividend paying companies tend to be mature, well-established companies A high dividend payment can provide a stabilising factor for the stock price Dividend payments have a disciplining effect on company management Dividend growth has been much less volatile than earnings growth historicallyCountercyclical Strategy: High dividend yields historically signal attractive entry points: buy when nobody else wants to buy A decreasing dividend yield provides a sell discipline after stock price appreciationSource: RCM; RCM is a company of Allianz Global Investors. 2

  6. 6. Investment Objective The fund aims to invest in high quality European companies with proven dividend records, backed by strong and stable cash flows It aims to offer investors a high and sustainable dividend income, with the prospect of long-term capital gains Rigorous and transparent investment process, based upon in-house fundamental research at RCM Run by Neil Dwane and Jörg de Vries-Hippen (Chief Investment Officers) 6
  7. 7. Unique Portfolio Construction:Integration of Dividend Estimate and Company Outlook Fundamental equity Integration Expected dividend yield analysis Analyst vote Analyst dividend estimate Active portfolio management: a dynamic approach to buys and sells in order to realise the optimal income and overall returns Buy target: dividend yield > 125 % of average dividend yield of index1 Sell candidate: dividend yield < average dividend yield of index Broad diversification across countries and sectors A smaller part of the portfolio (< 20 %) can be invested in companies with a yield below the buy threshold but with extraordinary dividend stability1For this purpose, the average dividend yield of the index adjusted for market upheaval is taken. Buy threshold based on RCM’s estimates on specific stocks which are subject to the latter capabilities toassess the companies correctly. 7
  8. 8. Focus on Safety of Dividends In the current environment, active management is key RCM’s fundamental research team analyses the probability that companies pay the expected dividendsPre-screening: Companies with dividend yield above government bond yieldRCM safety check looking at (but not exclusively): Earnings and cash flow coverage on Focus on Piotroski’s scoring system Focus nd Credit rating Dividend Divide Distribution capacity as additional control Safety Safety Maximum cash flow Impairment risk Dividend growthDividend safety: High and stable income 8
  9. 9. Allianz RCM European Equity DividendStock Example: SeadrillSeadrill is a leading offshore deepwater drilling company. The company operates a fleet of 48 units for operations in shallow to ultra-deepwater areas in harsh environment and benign environments, Semi-submersibles, deepwater drillships, jack-ups, semi-tender rigsand tender rigs. The focus of the company is on modern state-of-the-art offshore drilling units with the main focus on deepwateroperations. Seadrill has some 7,500 skilled and highly competent employees, representing some 50 nationalities, operating in 15countries on five continents. Dividend case: Seadrill has a secure dividend with very high yield, and continues to pay down debt at the same time The company has a clear focus on returning cash that is not used for investments While two of Seadrill’s deepwater rig contracts run out ahead of 2012, the majority runs longer. Thus, dayrates on average look safe medium term, although the next two contracts may need to be at lower rates in order to maintain high utilization Additional upside potential for the dividend through likely disposal of a subsidiary We bought the stock at attractive levels in November 2009, when the company announced a higher than expected dividendSource: Seadrill 9
  10. 10. Focus on Capital Protection Fund is allowed to hold temporarily up to 20 % cash according to sales prospectus. Cash will be used as instrument to protect capital. Fund is allowed to hedge equity exposure. Exposure in European equities: min 75 %. Target of the fund manager is to handle capital market risk and concentrate on high dividend yield. Target is to reach 125 % of dividend yield of the MSCI Europe. 10

  26. 26. Allianz RCM European Equity Dividend The Piotroski scoring system seeks to identify stocks with high financial strength It applies one point for each of the following nine indicators (the higher the overall sum, the better): Improving productivity 1 Positive net income 6 (asset turnover > prior period) Growing profitability 2 Positive operating cash flow 7 (return on assets > prior period) Earnings quality Issuing stock 3 8 (operating cash flow > net income) (share outstanding </= prior period) Decreasing debt Competitive position 4 9 (total debt/assets < prior period) (gross margin > prior period) 5 Increasing working capital The Piotroski score was developed by Joseph Piotroski, an Associate Professor of Accounting at Stanford University’s Graduate School of Business (previously at the University of Chicago’s Graduate School of Business). He reasoned that because value stocks are by definition often those of troubled companies, many will not possess the financial resources to recover. The scoring can help to eliminate the financially weakest stocksSource: Morgan Stanley, Stanford Graduate School of Business 26
