These numbers give indicative Fund exposures to assets with “country of risk” sourced from Bloomberg as either Russia, Ukraine, or Belarus, or exposures to Russian Rouble currency. These exposures do not give an indication of the relative exposures versus the benchmark. The figures are based on early price estimated data so may differ from the fully verified month end NAV exposure. Where the holding is “indirect” (for example held in a sub-fund), best efforts have been made to ensure that exposure to the sub-fund(s) is on a consistent basis. As at dates have been chosen to reflect exposure both before and after the significant recent falls in values of impacted assets.

Exposures are presented to two decimal places, exposures may be rounded to 0 if less than 0.05%.

    Daily midday dealt funds are valued at the 12:00 (UK time) on the dealing day.

    Key risks

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up, you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

    The value of an investment and any income taken from it is not guaranteed and can go down as well as up; you may not get back the amount you originally invested.

    The return from your investment is not guaranteed and therefore you may receive a lower or higher return than you anticipated. There will be a variation in performance between funds with similar objectives due to the different assets selected.

    PMC’s charges and associated transaction costs are subject to change, with notice for the former and without notice for the latter. Charges and transactions costs deducted from the policy reduce your potential for capital growth in the future.

    Tax rules and the treatment of income and capital gains could change in the future and may be applied retrospectively.

    Inflation reduces the purchasing power of money over time as the cost of purchasing goods and services increases. If the rate of inflation exceeds the rate of return on your portfolio, it will erode the value of your portfolio and its investments in real terms.

    In extreme market conditions it may be difficult to realise assets held for a fund and it may not be possible to redeem units at short notice. We may have to delay acting on your instructions to sell or the price at which you cancel the units may be lower than you anticipated.

    The value of a fund’s assets may be affected by uncertainties such as international political developments, market sentiment, economic conditions, changes in government policies, restrictions on foreign investment and currency repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of countries in which investment may be made.

    PMC seeks to mitigate counterparty risk wherever possible on behalf of its policyholders through a variety of measures which include: each fund’s non-cash assets being held with independent custodians, sweeping cash (where appropriate) overnight into the LGIM’s range of Liquidity funds (above a deminimus level), using the delivery versus payment system when settling transactions and the use of central clearing for exchange traded derivatives and forward foreign exchange transactions. However, in the event of the failure of a counterparty, custodian or issuer there is a residual risk that a fund may suffer asset losses which are unrecoverable.
