  3. 3. Introduction Welcome to the fourth quarter 2010 edition of Investment Edge. The fourth quarter was a very positive one as the MSCI World Index rose 10.9%, and despite a number of challenges during 2010, posted a very healthy return of 19.5% in euro terms for the year. The main issue weighing on markets throughout the year was the euro sovereign debt crisis, which eventually led to a bailout of Greece and later Ireland, and worries over other peripheral euro countries’ debt levels. In the first half of the year there were ongoing concerns about the possibility of a double dip recession and the effect of increasedregulation in the US and elsewhere of the financial sector. The second half of the year saw fundamentalsreassert themselves as better-than-expected economic data, along with improving corporate earnings,drove markets on.Despite the ongoing weakness of Irish bank shares, the ISEQ almost recorded a positive return for theyear and rallied strongly in the fourth quarter as its non-financial stocks participated in the global rally.Meanwhile, the price of oil rose above US$90 per barrel for the first time in over two years and othercommodity prices continued to push higher.The strong final quarter was mainly attributable to heightened expectations amidst increased confidencethat the global recovery was well on track and improving corporate profitability that reached record levels. Athome the final quarter was dominated by turmoil on the political front and once again in the financial sector,as AIB, which had been the biggest stock in the ISEQ just three years ago, was effectively nationalised. InNovember the EU and IMF jointly agreed to an Irish bailout of õ67.5 billion. Also during the month a four-yearnational recovery plan to return the Irish economy to sustainable growth was announced with the intentionof cutting our budget deficit to the official target of 3% of GDP by 2014.The mid-term elections in the US delivered a resounding victory for the Republicans. The extension of theBush-era tax cuts by President Obama and further quantitative easing would later act as another stimulusfor the US economy. Market gains in December were among the strongest of the year. The US S&P 500Index rose to its highest level in over two years and the FTSE 100 Index closed above 6,000 for the firsttime since June 2008.As we look to 2011 many of the same themes will remain centre stage. The eurozone sovereign debt crisis islikely to remain a major influence in 2011 as markets seem unconvinced that these issues have been solved.Global growth is again expected to be positive at about 4.2%, fed in large parts by the emerging markets.Interest rate policy will likely remain relaxed in most parts of the world with the expectation that interestrates will remain at, or near, historic lows. However, rates may come under pressure in the latter stagesof 2011 if growth continues as expected. Equities still look attractive and remain reasonably valued,particularly in relation to bonds and deposit rates. Corporate profits are expected to continue their advance,albeit at lower levels of growth than in 2010. We may also see an increase in dividend payouts this year ascompanies put their surplus cash to work.In the Spotlight section of this issue we focus on the outstanding long-term performance from some ofCanada Life/Setanta’s main funds.We wish you all the best for 2011.Michael HayesInvestment Development Manager Warning: Past performance is not a reliable guide to future performance. The value of your investment may go down as well as up. Canada Life Assurance (Ireland) Limited and The Canada Life Assurance Company are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

  5. 5. Market Commentary Q4 2010Global equities ended the year on a very positive note with the MSCI World Index returning +10.9% for quarter four,bringing the return for 2010 to +19.5%. The best performing sectors for the quarter were energy and industrials &materials and the weakest were healthcare and utilities.Japan (Nikkei) and the US (S&P500) had very strong quarters, up 14.1% and 12.8% respectively. Investors shruggedoff European sovereign debt concerns and higher unemployment figures and instead focused on a historic trend price/earnings ratio of 19 times and GDP growth. Following two very positive years, equities look reasonably valued at currentlevels. US equity markets also received a boost from the extension of tax breaks originally introduced by President Bushfor two years. This measure resulted in a rise in economic growth forecasts for 2011, but also in a rise in US governmentbond yields on the expectation that borrowing will need to increase. The UK and the US continued with their programmes ofquantitative easing during the quarter. Policymakers seem broadly determined to continue to support economic recoveryvia this exceptionally easy monetary policy approach for the foreseeable future, or until inflation becomes an inhibitingfactor. Equities were also buoyed by strong global growth - double digit growth was recorded in Asia.European equities (Europe ex-UK), generated a positive quarterly return for the first time in 2010 (+5.6%). Europeanequities have been held back by concerns about debt levels on the balance sheets of some European banks and ofperipheral European countries. Stock prices in Germany were strong for the quarter and for the year, reflecting strongGerman economic growth. The ISEQ index returned 8% for the quarter.In a further effort to curb inflation, which is being driven primarily by rising food prices, the People’s Bank of Chinaannounced an interest rate hike of 0.25% on Christmas Day. Equity markets are beginning to tune into inflationarypressures in China and global inflation will become a focus point for equity investors in 2011, along with corporateearnings, dividend policy and monetary policy.European bonds had a negative quarter; the Bank of America Merrill Lynch sovereign bond five-year index returned -5.7%. The European sovereign debt crisis was centre stage during the quarter and peripheral (Ireland, Greece, Portugal,Spain) bond yields continued to rise as the ongoing political debate about how best to contain and solve the crisisdragged on. Uncertainty over European sovereign debt will likely continue to impact equity and bonds over the mediumterm, until a comprehensive eurozone response is accepted by the markets. European corporate bonds fared betterduring the quarter, down -1.7%, and returning +6% for 2010 as a whole (Merrill Lynch EMU Corporate bond index).Cash generated a low yield, reflecting the current low interest rate environment. The European Central Bank (ECB) left itsmain refinancing rate (refi) at 1% in line with market expectations. This is expected to remain unchanged during 2011.The euro weakened against the US dollar and sterling during the quarter by -1.9% and -1.0%, respectively. In overallterms, the euro fell by 8% against the US dollar during 2010, despite having strengthened against the US dollar for thefirst half of the year.Brent oil rose again during the quarter and reached its highest level of $94.3/barrel since October 1st 2008 when itthen peaked at $94.9/barrel. Growth in manufacturing together with the cold weather in Europe and the US helped toincrease demand. The Dow Jones UBS Spot Commodity Index rose by 18.9% during the quarter, bringing the gains forthe year to 26.4%.MSCI World Q4. 2010Source: MSCI Net Total Returns (in €) 01.10.2010 – 31.12.2010 4

  7. 7. Canada Life fund performance outperformsthe markets in 2010By Michael Hayes, Investment Development Manager, Canada Life2010 was another good year for investors with many major markets recording significant gains tobuild on the very positive returns seen in 2009. Recent performance figures show that several ofCanada Life’s investment funds outperformed their respective benchmarks in 2010 and over longerperiods*.While the 2010 performance figures are very welcome, the more relevant longer-term numbersare also very strong with several of our key funds showing significant outperformance against theirrelevant benchmarks and competitor funds. The Canada Life/Setanta Global Equity Fund, the CanadaLife/Setanta Focus 15 Fund, the Canada Life/Setanta Irish Equity Fund and the Canada Life/SetantaManaged Fund have all outperformed their respective benchmarks over the more relevant three, fiveand 10-year periods.Setanta has a strong conviction in value and quality investing, coupled with a diligent investmentprocess.

The Canada Life/Setanta Focus 15 fund has been one of the best-performingfunds in the Irish market over the last two years.With industry single premium sales increasing by 30% in 2010, it is encouraging to note that peopleare moving back into investment funds and away from cash and deposits. We have now had two goodyears in a row, and this has certainly helped investor confidence. Some funds are showing gains ofover 100% for the past two years. The positive trend into other asset classes that started in 2009has gathered momentum, and we are delighted to see that it looks set to continue in 2011.Canada Life is the strongest life assurance group in Ireland.
