turbulence during the quarter, with global liquidity and strong fundamentals in 
emerging markets continuing to be positive for the Group's investment themes. 
The Group has continued to attract net subscriptions and the Group's track 
record of delivering investment out-performance has been sustained. 
 
The Group remains focused on delivering long term investment out-performance and 
generating net management fee income through the attraction of net subscriptions 
across all of its investment themes. Trading conditions continue to be in line 
with management expectations and the Group remains confident of its prospects 
for the current financial year. 
 
The Group will announce its fourth quarter AuM Statement on 17 July 2007 and its 
preliminary results in respect of the financial year to 30 June 2007 at 0700
