Management contractManagement agreement terminable on one years notice. The management fee is calculated monthly in arrear at 0.75% per annum on the value of the Company's Total Assets (before deducting bank loan). The Company's key performance indicator is the movement of the NAV compared with the movement of the FTSE World Index - Europe (ex UK) in sterling terms (the Index). The investment management agreement provides for an additional performance-related fee to the Manager in years when the NAV decreases based on the degree to which NAV exceeds that of the index. No performance related fee is payable for the year to 30-Sep-08.
