4 EPFR Global 4 Equity/Bond Fund Flows Data Definitions ………………………………………………………………………………………….…. Assets BoW: Total fund assets beginning of week Assets EoW: Total fund assets end of week Weekly Net Chg: Weekly change in total net assets Weekly Portfolio Chg: Weekly change due to portfolio performance ($ terms) Weekly Portfolio Chg %: Weekly change due to portfolio performance based on BoW assets (% terms) Weekly Flows: Investor purchases/redemptions of fund shares ($ terms) Weekly Flows %: Investor purchases/redemptions based on BoW assets (% terms) Fund Curr: Main currency denomination of fund share class Domicile: Country of legal registration of fund Advisor: Company responsible for day to day management of portfolio of the fund For monthly reports, weekly will be replaced with monthly

5 EPFR Global 5 Equity/Bond Fund Flows - Method of Calculation ……………………………………………………………………………………………………..………. Weekly Net Flows = (Weekly Net Chg) – (Weekly Portfolio Chg) Weekly Portfolio Chg = (Assets BoW) x Weekly performance of the fund* *Change in NAV per share including any dividend distributions Weekly Net Chg = (Assets EoW) – (Assets BoW) – (Weekly Forex Chg) = (Assets EoW) – (Assets BoW) – (Weekly Forex Chg) or = (Weekly Portfolio Chg) + (Weekly Flows) = (Weekly Portfolio Chg) + (Weekly Flows)

6 EPFR Global 6 Example: European Growth Fund BoW Assets: 500mBoW /US$ exchange rate: EoW Assets: 550mEoW /US$ exchange rate: BoW NAV: 10Average /US$ exchange rate: EoW NAV: 10.6 NAV Performance for the week: 6% (10.6 – 10)/10 Step 1: Calculate Portfolio Change & Fund Flows in local currency Portfolio Change: 500m x 6% = 30m Fund Flows: 550m - 500m - 30m = 20m Step 2: Convert all local currency amounts to US$ BoW Assets: 500m x = $637.5m EoW Assets: 550m x = $674.85m Portfolio Change: 30m x = $37.53m Fund flow: 20m x = $25.02m If FX rate remained the same for the week, then BoW Assets + Portfolio Change + Fund Flow would equal EoW Assets Expected EoW Assets: $ $ $25.02 = $ Actual EoW Assets: $ Forex change: $ – $ = $25.2m Equity/Bond Fund Flows - Method of Calculation (Cont.) …………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….……….

21 EPFR Global 21 Frequently Asked Questions ………………………………………………………..……… Q: What is the difference between the monthly and weekly Fund Flows reports? A: The Weekly report contains a sub-set of the funds contained in the Monthly report. This is because not all funds report to Emerging Portfolio Fund Research (EPFR) on a weekly basis. Those that do are included in the weekly report. Those that don't can only be seen in the monthly report. The Monthly Fund Flows report has the same format as the Weekly Fund Flows report. Q: Does EPFR Fund Data only cover emerging markets funds? A: No - International funds, Global funds, Developed Europe funds, Pacific funds, Japan funds, and USA funds are also part of our coverage.
