  21. 21. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION 09/23/11 Source: Lipper. Performance shown is Total Return (GBP) with income re-invested net of tax, net of annual charges and excluding initial charges. The impact of any initial charge can be material on the performance of the investments. Past performance is no guarantee of future returns, the value of the portfolios and income from them is not guaranteed and may fall as well as rise and investors may not get back the amount invested.   The price of shares and units and the income therefrom   can fluctuate and may be affected by exchange rate variations. The performance of the Fiducia Portfolios illustrated is based on current and back tested historical   holdings.   The holdings in the Fiducia portfolios will change from time to time and any changes may not be made immediately to clients ’ portfolios.   Due to the inconsistent nature of total switching costs, these are excluded from portfolio performance. In the unlikely event that historic prices cannot be obtained for closed funds the relevant IMA sector benchmark will be used as a proxy. Performance is based on holding the underlying investments direct with each investment company. Investments will, however, be held via a wrap Platform. The wrap platform negotiate discounts with each investment company but charge an annual fee for their service. Depending on the size of discounts negotiated and total amounts invested the actual performance of clients ’ portfolios may therefore differ from that shown. While all reasonable efforts have been made to ensure that data is accurate and up to date, no representations or warranties are given as to the reliability, accuracy or completeness of data.
