  • 5. SEB Lux Fund INDEPENDENT AUDITOR'S REPORT To the Unitholders of SEB Lux Fund Luxembourg We have audited the financial statements, which consist of the statement of net assets, the statement of operations, the statement of changes in net assets, the schedule of investments and the notes to the financial statements of SEB Lux Fund and of each of its Sub-Funds for the year ended December 31, 2002. These financial statements are the responsibility of the Board of Directors of the Management Company. Our responsibility is to express an opinion on these financial statements based on our audit. We conducted our audit in accordance with International Standards on Auditing. Those Standards require that we plan and perform the audit to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financial statements are free of material misstatement. An audit includes examining, on a test basis, evidence supporting the amounts and disclosures in the financial statements. An audit also includes assessing the accounting principles used and significant estimates made by the Board of Directors of the management company in preparing the financial statements, as well as evaluating the overall financial statements presentation. We believe that our audit provides a reasonable basis for our opinion. In our opinion, the attached financial statements give, in conformity with Luxembourg legal and regulatory requirements, a true and fair view of the financial position of SEB Lux Fund and each of its Sub-Funds at December 31, 2002 and the results of their operations and changes in their net assets for the year then ended. Supplementary information included in the annual report has been reviewed in the context of our mandate but has not been subject to specific audit procedures carried out in accordance with the standards described above. Consequently, we express no opinion on such information. We have no observation to make concerning such information in the context of the financial statements taken as a whole.

  • 6. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - World 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance The Sub-Fund’s capital fell from USD 239.74 million to USD 170.44 million during the year. The net asset value fell by 27.5 percent if expressed in SEK, while the Sub-Fund’s comparison index fell by 24.2 percent. The selection of both Swedish and foreign shares had the most negative effect on the Sub-Fund’s return, while bonds made a positive contribution. The distribution between shares and bonds had a marginally negative effect, as the markets performed more poorly than we had expected. The stronger Swedish krona had a negative effect on the net asset value figure in SEK, but a positive effect on the relative index, as the Sub-Fund had an overweight in Swedish kronor. The selection of Swedish shares and the overweight in forestry companies accounted for the biggest positive contribution, while the selection of shares and sector weighting in manufacturing and banks were most negative. In foreign shares, the holdings in Tyco, Charter Communication, Allianz, Ford Motor Co and Ahold had the most negative effect. The shares that made the most positive contribution to the Sub-Fund’s development were consumer companies Anheuser-Bush and Procter & Gamble, insurance company Zürich Financial Services and bank ABN Amro. Our cautious exposure to the technology and media sectors also made a positive contribution. During the first half of the year, the relative development of bonds was also favoured by the fact that the maturity remained shorter than index, but was negatively affected in the second half of the year when the interest rates fell. 2. Changes during the period In Swedish shares, the biggest changes took place in the banking sector, with SEB reduced in favour of Nordea and Handelsbanken, while the sector was overweighted. In foreign shares, in the early part of the year we increased the proportion of cyclically sensitive companies in the portfolio, but in line with reports of constantly weakening economic statistics, we reduced the Sub-Fund’s cyclic element during autumn. We also reduced the exposure to banks and insurance to underweight, compared with the index. This was done by reducing the holdings in Citigroup and Allianz. In view of the political unease in the Middle East and the uncertain share climate, we kept an overweight in the oil sector for most of the year. In other respects, the Sub-Fund had a relatively balanced distribution between cyclic and defensive sectors. During the period, we had for the most part a neutral weighting between shares and bonds. In bonds, the proportion of housing bonds is greater than in the Sub-Fund’s comparison index. 3. Other Sub-Fund traded in index futures throughout the year. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 6

  • 20. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Global Equity 1. Performance In 2002, the Sub-Fund's capital fell from USD 35.1 million to USD 23.0 million. The Sub-Fund's net asset value sank by 37.7 per cent if expressed in SEK, whereas the benchmark index declined by 34.4 per cent. The weakening of the US dollar had an adverse effect on the Sub-Fund's performance. The main reason why the Sub-Fund underperformed in relation to the benchmark is the choice of equity. Holdings in Tyco, Charter Communication, Allianz, Ford Motor Co. and Ahold accounted for the most negative contributions. The companies that contributed most to the results were the consumer goods companies Anheuser-Bush and Procter & Gamble, the insurance company Zurich Financial Services and the bank ABN Amro. Our cautious exposure to the technology and media sectors was also positive. 2. Changes in the period At the start of the year, we increased the share of cyclically-sensitive companies in the portfolio. In line with increasingly weaker financial statistics, we reduced this cyclically-sensitive share again in the autumn. At the same time, we reduced our exposure to the banking and insurance sectors so that these were underweighted in relation to the index. This was done, among other things, by reducing our holdings in Citigroup and Allianz. Against the background of political unrest in the Middle East and uncertainty in the stock market, we maintained an overweight in the oil sector for the greater part of the year. Exxon and Shell are two of the most important holdings. Otherwise, the Sub-Fund had a relatively balanced spread between cyclical and defensive sectors. 3. General The Sub-Fund periodically invested in forward contracts to optimise its performance. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 20

  • 27. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Swedish Short-Medium Term 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance The Sub-Fund capital amounted to SEK 716.9 million at 31 December 2002, compared with SEK 429.4 million at 31 December 2001. The Sub-Fund’s net asset value increased by 3.7 percent during the year, while its comparison index rose by 4.6 percent. 2. Changes during the period In the first half of 2002 the Sub-Fund had a shorter average maturity period than its comparison index. Our analysis on higher inflation, upwardly revised growth forecasts and signs of a healthier economy was correct and in spring the Swedish Central Bank increased the repo rate by 0.5 percent, from 3.75 percent to 4.25 percent. Market rates rose, which favoured the Sub-Fund’s value development in comparison with index. During the second quarter the widespread market unease had a negative effect on market rates. However, taken as a whole, the Sub-Fund had a positive return in comparison with its reference index in the first half- year. In the third and fourth quarters the Sub-Fund’s average maturity was a little longer than its comparison index. Our assessment was based on the Swedish Central Bank keeping the repo rate unchanged and there being no risk of an increase, which favoured the Sub-Fund’s value growth. In the middle of the fourth quarter the world’s central banks began to discuss further lowering of interest rates. This resulted in a steeper yield curve and also had a positive effect on the Sub-Fund’s performance. 3. Other The Sub-Fund had a larger proportion of short-term securities issued by mortgage credit institutions than did the comparison index. The Sub-Fund has traded in futures contracts on a very small scale. At the end of the period the Sub-Fund had a neutral maturity compared with index.

  • 32. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Ethical Sweden 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance The net asset value, with dividend re-invested, decreased from SEK 30.71 to SEK 18.88 during the year. The Sub-Fund’s comparison index dropped by 36.1 percent in the same period. A dividend of SEK 0.03 per share was paid on the February 6, 2002. Most of the Sub-Fund’s poor performance against its comparison index occurred in the first half of the year. The main cause was an over-positive view of the share market and the difficulty in predicting the poor development in the technology sector. In the first half of the year the Sub-Fund made relatively large investments in the telecoms sector. However, positive contributions came from the Sub-Fund’s large holdings in stable, well-organised SCA and positions in some small companies, including Castellum and Billerud. The Sub-Fund also had holdings in Esselte and Munskjö, two companies that were taken over during the year. 2. Changes during the period Major changes in the Sub-Fund included increased investments in the finance sector and changed positions in the sector. Large acquisitions were made in Handelsbanken and Nordea. The holding in Föreningssparbanken was increased a little. Large sales were made in SEB and Skandia. The main purpose of these changes was to increase exposure to a low-valued sector with stable earning capacity and also to increase exposure in this sector to companies with an earning capacity that is not so dependent on capital market trends. A changed and more cautious view of the telecoms market, particularly telecommunications equipment, resulted in a smaller position in this sector. This means the Sub-Fund’s position in Nokia, for example, is consequently smaller. However, the holdings in Tele2 and Telia have increased. We consider these companies to be more stable and attractively valued. The holding in Hennes & Mauritz was reduced during the year. Hennes & Mauritz is a very well-organised company, but in our opinion the outlook for private consumption is a little uncertain and valuation became somewhat demanding. 3. Others During the year the Sub-Fund traded in options and futures contracts and lent shares to a limited extent. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 32

  • 38. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Europe Equity 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance Sub-Fund capital amounted to USD 51.0 million at 31 December 2002, compared with USD 79.3 million at 31 December 2001. The Sub-Fund’s net asset value decreased by 35.1 percent if expressed in SEK while its comparison index fell by 33.1 percent. The Sub-Fund lagged behind its comparison index after its holdings in public utility companies, the retail trade and food performed worse than index. Suez, the Sub-Fund’s holding in public utility companies, suffered a large decline in value during the year, due to economic unrest in South America and devaluation of currencies in the region. The holding in Ahold in the retail trade was sold. The company issued profit warnings during the year and investors became nervous about development in the company’s American operations. We remained neutral in food companies during the year, but did not own Unilever, which was clearly the best share. In banks, technology and oil, development was better. The Sub-Fund’s holdings in Libertel and Telecel performed particularly well. In banks, Gjensidige was one of the best shares in 2002. Shell performed better than Royal Dutch, which had a positive impact on the Sub-Fund’s development. The euro weakened by 2 percent against the Swedish krona, the GB pound by 8 percent and the Danish krone by 2 percent. This had a negative effect on the Sub-Fund’s development. The Swiss franc was unchanged against the Swedish krona during the year. The Norwegian krone strengthened by 7 percent against the Swedish krona, which had a positive effect on the Sub-Fund’s development. 2. Changes during the period During the period we increased the Sub-Fund’s holdings in oil, manufacturing and pharmaceuticals. To finance this increase, we reduced the holdings in the raw materials and insurance sectors. From a company perspective, we sold the Sub-Fund’s holding in German motor company DaimlerChrysler, mainly on account of its exposure to the US market, and purchased German BMW instead. We also sold the Sub-Fund’s holding in SEB. In addition, we sold the holdings in German insurance companies Allianz and SCA and increased the holdings in pharmaceutical company Novartis, retail company Tesco and Greek telecoms operator Hellenic Telecom. The Sub-Fund’s largest holdings in relation to index were Vallehermoso, Novartis and DaimlerChrysler, and its most underweighted holding in relation to index were Allianz, Roche and L'Oreal. 3. Other During the period the Sub-Fund had holdings in share futures listed in GBP and Euro. The Sub-Fund also has a permit to trade in share options, but did not exercise this facility in 2002. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 38

  • 45. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - North America Equity 1. Sub-Fund's performance In 2002, the Sub-Fund's capital fell from USD 17.0 million to USD 11.0 million. The Sub-Fund's net asset value sank by 41.6 per cent if expressed in SEK, whereas the benchmark index declined by 36.3 per cent. The weak US dollar had a negative impact on the Sub-Fund's net asset value. Small and medium-sized businesses performed considerably better than large companies in the first half of the year. This is the main reason why the Sub-Fund followed a poorer trend than the stock market as a whole, as the Sub-Fund invested primarily in big companies. The share spread between sectors had an adverse effect on the Sub-Fund's return for the year, primarily because the share of software companies was too big and the share of stable food and beverages and pharmaceutical companies was too small. The finance companies Principal Financial Group and Washington Mutual are two of the companies that made the most positive contribution to the Sub-Fund's performance in relation to the benchmark index, whereas the manufacturing conglomerate Tycho and technology company Micron had the most negative impact. 2. Changes in the period In the first quarter of the year, we increased the share of pharmaceutical companies in the Sub-Fund through purchases of shares in Bristol-Myers and Eli Lilly. The holding in Citigroup was reduced with the aim of reducing the Sub-Fund's share in the banking sector, due to increased uncertainty regarding the US banks' credit risk. In terms of stable consumer goods companies, Pepsi Co was sold in favour of Coca-Cola, which has a more attractive rating. In addition, risk in the technology sector was reduced through the sales of Sun Microsystem and Computer Sciences, in favour of IBM and Intel. The Sub-Fund is currently overweighted in the technology and pharmaceutical sectors, but is otherwise generally sector neutral. 3. General Forward contracts and sector futures were used in 2002. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 45

  • 52. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Japan Equity 1. Sub-Fund's performance The Sub-Fund's capital amounted to JPY 472 million on 31 December 2002. The corresponding figure for 2001 was JPY 732.8 million. There have been substantial capital outflows from the Sub-Fund, in particular when the market plummeted in June, October and December. In view of the difficult conditions in the stock markets, holdings performed relatively well in 2002 and outperformed the benchmark index by 5.5 per cent. The Sub-Fund's net asset value fell by 20.5 per cent if expressed in SEK, whereas the benchmark index declined by 26 per cent. The Sub-Fund performed well in the second half of the year, primarily due to the underweighting of holdings in the banking sector. Following an announcement by the Japanese central bank that it intended to buy parts of Japanese banks' equity holdings, investors bought bank shares in the market. The central bank did not succeed in giving the banking sector the intended lift, which in fact benefited the Sub-Fund, due to the underweighting of the banking sector. The Sub-Fund's performance also benefited from movements in private shares in NTT, Kao and Komeri. These gains were to some extent offset by the weak trend in Electronic Equipments, as the company was overweighted through the year. The Swedish krona firmed against the Japanese yen, which pulled down the Sub-Fund's return in SEK. 2. Changes in the period The Sub-Fund's holdings in the electrical equipment sector were increased in 2002, whereas holdings in energy companies and capital goods were reduced. New holdings include shares in Ushio, Mitsui & Co. and Misumi. We sold the Sub-Fund's holdings in Fuji Photo, Murata and Nomura Holdings. It seems that the market has become sensitive to short-term gains in recent months. This has created favourable conditions for switching from shares that have performed well to shares that have recorded the poorest performance. We strive to take advantage of such opportunities by buying new shares with a better growth potential and/or lowering ratings. 3. General The Sub-Fund is permitted to trade in options, forward contracts and similar financial instruments, but did not use this possibility in 2002. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 52

  • 59. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Asia Equity 1. Sub-Fund's performance The Sub-Fund's capital amounted to USD 8.9 million at end-2002, compared with USD 11.5 million at the start of the year. The Sub-Fund outperformed the benchmark index by 0.8 per cent through the year. The Sub- Fund's net asset value fell by 25.3 per cent if expressed in SEK, whereas the benchmark index declined by 26.1 per cent. The reason for this is that the choice of equity offset the negative effect of the Sub-Fund's asset allocation. Despite overweighted holdings in Indonesia and South Korea (which followed the most favourable trends after Thailand) and underweighted holdings in the Philippines and Taiwan (the markets with the poorest performance), the Sub-Fund's underweighting in Thailand contributed negatively to the Sub-Fund's performance, as this market recorded the greatest rise. In terms of the share spread, Hong Kong contributed positively. A sharp rise in certain consumer goods and energy shares had a greater impact than the negative effect of the Sub-Fund's overweighting in property management. Malaysia also helped to improve the performance. Developments in certain finance companies and defensive holdings outperformed the Sub-Fund's benchmark index. Holdings in Thailand also made a positive contribution as the holding of energy shares rose in line with oil prices. These factors all helped to soften the impact of the poor choice of shares in Taiwan's technology sector that performed badly as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the outlook for the technology sector. The Swedish krona firmed against currencies in the region in 2002, which resulted in a decline in the Sub- Fund's return measured in SEK. 2. Changes in the period In terms of country distribution, the Sub-Fund's investments in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan were reduced. And in terms of sector, the Sub-Fund's holdings in the technology sector were reduced following the sharp upturn in the first quarter. There were gains on some technology shares through the year and the Sub- Funds were reinvested in quality shares with attractive credit ratings in the consumer goods and banking sectors primarily in Hong Kong, South Korea and Malaysia. These investments helped to maintain the Sub- Fund's cyclical position. We also reduced the Sub-Fund's property holding in Hong Kong as the trend in the property market continues to be weak and the sector is threatened by oversupply. We increased the Sub-Fund's holdings in metal shares in Taiwan and South Korea and in energy shares in China. The Sub-Fund is currently overweighted in Singapore and South Korea and underweighted in the other markets. The Sub-Fund has no equity in the Philippines. In terms of sector distribution, the Sub-Fund is overweighted in the energy and food and consumer goods sectors and underweighted in the metal and property sectors. 3. General The Sub-Fund is permitted to use in options, forward contracts and similar financial instruments, but did not use this possibility in 2002.

  • 65. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Medical 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance Sub-Fund capital started the year on USD 181.9 million and ended on USD 119.7 million. This fall is largely attributable to the reduction in the value of the shares during the year. The Sub-Fund had a negative return of 35.8 percent if expressed in SEK, which was 0.5 percent more than its comparison index, which fell to 35.3 percent. Despite the fact that the Sub-Fund’s return was positively affected by the selection of shares in the biotechnology and medical service sectors, the return was negative against the index on account of the selection of shares in pharmaceutical companies. The performance of the US dollar did not affect the Sub-Fund’s return in comparison with its index, but the absolute return was negatively affected. 2. Changes during the period In recent times we have seen some positive trends, such as the approval of new products. This has made us more positive to the large pharmaceutical companies. We still prefer shares where growth comes from products that are already on the market and which have limited exposure to patent expiry. Pharmaceutical companies in the USA and Europe have roughly the same valuations, while the Japanese pharmaceutical companies appear a little less attractive. The Japanese pharmaceuticals market has a lower growth rate than the equivalent US and European markets and the Japanese pharmaceutical companies are much more dependent on their domestic market than are their more international US and European rivals. We reduced our holdings in medical service a little, after the high exposure in this sector during the year. We are still biding our time with regard to the biotechnology sector and prefer companies with products that are already on the market or are in the final research phase. These companies have a lower profit growth than small companies, but are more predictable. At the start of the year we invested in unlisted companies on the Sub-Fund’s behalf, such as the Swedish biotechnology company Personal Chemistry and the US medical technology company Vertis Neuroscience. A new addition to the Sub-Fund is the US manufacturer of generic pharmaceuticals, Mylan Laboratories. The medical technology company Mettler Toledo and biotechnology company Human Genome Sciences were sold. 3. Other The Sub-Fund traded in options with Pfizer during the year.

  • 70. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund-Technology 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance The Sub-Fund started the year with a total capital of USD 92.1 million, which had fallen to USD 38.2 million at the end of the year. The net asset value fell by 49.7 percent if expressed in SEK, while the Sub-Fund’s comparison index decreased by 48.2 percent. The deviation from index was quite small during the period and is largely due to the fact that the biggest index shares performed relatively well. In a weak market it was difficult to find alternatives to the big and more stable index shares, as the Sub-Fund also had to take into consideration the 40- percent rule. In the second half of the year, for example, the Sub-Fund lost 0.8 percent in relative return on Microsoft alone, which had a weighting of almost 20 percent of index, while the Sub-Fund maximum may have 10 percent. Examples of shares that contributed positively in the second half of the year were BEA Systems, Amazon.com, Oracle and Hewlett Packard. Negative contributions to the Sub-Fund’s return came mainly from semiconductor companies. The net asset value was affected negatively during the year by approx. 12 percent, on account of the falling dollar rate. 2. Changes during the period The first big change to the Sub-Fund’s structure was a relatively large increase in the weighting in traditional computer companies at the expense of other sectors. Computer companies have increased their weighting from 16 to 26 percent through the Sub-Fund’s investments in Hewlett Packard and EMC (data warehousing) and the increased holding in IBM and Dell. Towards the end of the year, we sold all Internet-related shares, such as Amazon.com and Yahoo, because of sharp price rises and high expectations relating to Christmas trading. We also sold all the shares in AOL Time Warner and Sony. 3. Other At mid-year the Sub-Fund changed its comparison index to the Financial Times Information Technology Index, in order to have a globally uniform index that better reflects the global electronics industry, with Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Hong Kong among the investment areas. The Sub-Fund has a permit to trade in options, futures contracts and similar financial instruments, but did not exercise this facility during the period.

  • 76. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Ethical Global 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance Sub-Fund capital fell from USD 4.4 million to USD 2.9 million during the year. The net asset value fell by 37.8 percent if expressed in SEK, while the Sub-Fund’s comparison index fell by 36.0 percent. The fact that the Sub-Fund performed worse than index is due to the selection of shares rather than sector. The largest negative contribution came from the manufacturing companies Tyco and ABB and the consumer companies Ahold and Home Depot. The investments in Nokia and Ericsson provided the biggest positive contribution to it’s development. The weakened dollar had a negative effect on the Sub-Fund’s return in SEK. 2. Changes during the period In the early part of the year we increased the proportion of cyclically sensitive companies in the portfolio, but in pace with ever weakening economic statistics, we gradually returned to a more balanced weighting between cyclic and defensive sectors. We also reduced the exposure in banks and insurance to underweight, compared with index. This was achieved by selling ABN Amro Holding and BBVA. In view of the political unease in the Middle East and our opinion that the energy sector’s favourable conditions would continue in the uncertain share climate, we increased the Sub-Fund’s proportion of oil companies to an overweight through the purchase of Transocean and BP. 3. Other We set ethical restrictions on the Sub-Fund’s investment approach in December. The Sub-Fund now invests in accordance with GES (Global Ethical Standard), whereby companies are identified from a selection of international standards covering human rights, work, environment, arms and corruption. In addition, the Sub- Fund does not invest in companies whose main business is arms, alcohol, tobacco and pornography. The Sub-Fund has not exercised its facility to trade in options and futures contracts. March 21, 2003 THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS NOTE : Performances mentioned in this report are historical and are not indicative of future results. 76

  • 85. REPORT OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF SEB Lux Fund Management Company S.A. TO THE UNITHOLDERS OF SEB Lux Fund - Swedish Medium Term 1. The Sub-Fund’s performance Sub-Fund capital amounted to SEK 334 million at 31 December 2002, compared with SEK 301.7 million at 31 December 2001. The Sub-Fund’s net asset value increased by 5.2 percent, while its comparison index increased by 6.4 percent. 2. Changes during the period In the first half of 2002 the Sub-Fund had a shorter average maturity period than its comparison index. Our analysis on higher inflation, upwardly revised growth forecasts and signs of a healthier economy was correct and in spring the Swedish Central Bank increased the repo rate by 0.5 percent, from 3.75 percent to 4.25 percent. However, in spring the Sub-Fund was negative against index, as a result of the widespread market unease that sent market rates falling. However, taken as a whole, the Sub-Fund had a positive return in comparison with its reference index in the first half-year. In the second half of the year, the Sub-Fund’s average maturity was again a little shorter than its comparison index, as market rates had fallen considerably below our equilibrium rate. It was our opinion that the rate of inflation above the inflation target and stable public finances would result in the Swedish Central Bank keeping the repo rate unchanged at 4.25 percent. In the fourth quarter the world’s central banks began to discuss further lowering of interest rates. This resulted in a steeper yield curve, which had a positive effect on the Sub-Fund. At the end of the quarter the risk of a war between the USA and Iraq increased, with new worries that this would halt the economic recovery, which caused interest rates to fall again. The Sub-Fund was negatively affected by this during the second half-year. 3. Other The Sub-Fund has traded in futures contracts on a small scale. At the end of the period the Sub-Fund had a shorter maturity than its comparison index.

  • 92. SEB Lux Fund NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS As at December 31, 2002 Note 1. GENERAL SEB LUX Fund ("the Fund") was established on May 27, 1993 as a Luxembourg Mutual Fund and is governed by the Investment Funds law dated March 30, 1988 and its Management Regulations. The Fund is divided into the following Sub-Funds: SEB Lux Fund - World SEB Lux Fund - Global Equity SEB Lux Fund - Swedish Short-Medium Term SEB Lux Fund - Ethical Sweden SEB Lux Fund - Europe Equity SEB Lux Fund - North America Equity SEB Lux Fund - Japan Equity SEB Lux Fund - Asia Equity SEB Lux Fund – Medical SEB Lux Fund - Technology SEB Lux Fund - Ethical Global SEB Lux Fund - Swedish Medium Term SEB LUX Fund Management Company S.A. ("Management Company") manages the net assets of the Fund and issues registered units of joint ownership in accordance with the Management Regulations. The Management Regulations stipulate that each Sub-Fund may be divided in two classes of units: accumulation units ("A" units) and dividend units ("B" units). The "B" units may pay a dividend. The "A" units will capitalise income, with the result that their value will become greater than that of "B" units, in the proportion of the dividends paid to the "B" units. The Management Company has decided that currently only dividend units ("B" units) are issued. Note 2. SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES The financial statements are presented in accordance with Luxembourg regulations relating to undertakings for collective investment. Currency translation: Separate accounts are maintained for each Sub-Fund in the currency in which the net asset value of the units to which it relates is expressed (the accounting currency). Transactions denominated in a currency other than the accounting currency are recorded on the basis of exchange rates prevailing on the date they occur or accrue to the Sub-Fund. Assets and liabilities, expressed in a currency other than the accounting currency, are translated on the basis of exchange rates ruling at the balance sheet date. Forward foreign exchange contracts are valued at the forward foreign exchange rate. The financial statements of the Fund are the aggregate of the financial statements of the different Sub-Funds which, where applicable, are translated into US Dollars at the year-end exchange rate. Investments: Listed securities and securities traded on other organised markets are valued on the basis of the prices and exchange rates prevailing on the balance sheet date. Other securities and securities listed or traded on other organised markets whose prices or quotations are not deemed to be representative, are valued with prudence and in good faith by the Management Company on the basis of information available and exchange rates prevailing at year end. 92
  • 93. SEB Lux Fund NOTES TO FINANCIAL STATEMENTS As at December 31, 2002 (CONTINUED) Changes in the values of zero papers are included in "other assets" and reflected as "interest on bonds".
