Trigon to launch New Europe Small Cap Fund

Today we find two pockets in the Central and Eastern European markets where we believe equities are attractively valued and markets offer good risk/return ratio - Croatia and Poland. Poland which is the largest among EU new member states has recently seen strong economic growth accompanied by increasing FDI flows and rising domestic demand and exports. Polish equity market with more than EUR 55bn market cap and more than 200 investable companies is by far the largest in the Central and Eastern European region. IPO boom that started in 2004 and that is to continue this year, large variety of unresearched stocks and attractively valued small and mid cap sector creates attractive investment opportunities for value investors and stock-pickers in Poland.

In order take advantage of low valuation levels and to capture the small and mid cap investment opportunities in Poland and other EU new member states and accession countries (no investments to be made to Russia, Ukraine, Belorussia or Turkey) we will launch Trigon New Europe Small Cap Fund on Monday, May 16. The fund invests only into listed small and mid cap companies and applies the same investment approach as our other funds - value investing and stock picking combined with constant company visits in the region.

We believe this Fund to offer clients best risk/return ratio among our funds. I have enclosed the Fund's introduction and presentation to this email. Should you wish to learn more about the Fund we would be happy to present the Fund to you during the roadshow, have a conference call with you or answer your questions over the email. I will be visiting Helsinki, Stockholm, Copenhagen, Zürich/Geneva and London during May and would be happy to meet with you.
