The accounting year of the SICAV ends on March 31 every year. Note 2 – Principal accounting policies 2.1 Presentation of financial statements The financial statements are prepared in accordance with Luxembourg regulations relating to Undertakings for Collective Investment. 2.2 Valuation of investment in securities 2.2.1 Securities or money market instruments quoted or traded on an official stock exchange or any other regulated market, are valued on the basis of the last known price, and if the securities or money market instruments are listed on several stock exchanges or regulated markets, the last known price of the stock exchange which is the principal market for security or money market in question, unless these prices are not representative. 2.2.2 For securities or money market instruments not quoted or traded on an official stock exchange or any other regulated market, and for quoted securities or money market instruments, but for which the last known price is not representative, valuation is based on the probable sales price estimated prudently and in good faith by the Board of Directors of the SICAV. 2.2.3 Liquid assets and money market instruments with a maturity of less than 12 months may be valued at nominal value plus any accrued interest or using an amortised cost method. 2.2.4 Investments in other open-ended UCIs are valued on the basis of the respective last available net asset value of such UCIs at each Valuation Day. 2.2.5 Units or shares of a closed-ended UCI are valued in accordance with the valuation rules set out in items 2.2.1 and 2.2.2. 2.2.6 Any of the above mentioned assets for which the valuation in accordance with the above paragraphs is not possible, practicable or representative of their fair value are valued at fair market value, as determined in good faith by the Board of Directors of the SICAV. 2.3 Valuation of swaps 2.3.1 Credit default swap A credit default swap is a credit derivative transaction in which two parties enter into an agreement, whereby one party (the protection buyer) pays the other (the protection seller) a fixed periodic coupon for the specified life of the agreement in return for a payment contingent on a credit event related to the underlying reference obligation. If a credit event occurs, the protection seller would be obligated to make a payment, which may be either: (i) a net cash settlement equal to the notional amount of the swap less the auction value of the reference obligation or (ii) the notional amount of the swap in exchange for the delivery of the reference obligation. Selling protection effectively adds leverage to a sub-fund’s portfolio up to the notional amount of swap agreements. The notional amount represents the maximum potential liability under a contract and is not reflected in the statement of net assets. Potential liabilities under these contracts may be reduced by: the auction rates of the underlying reference obligations; upfront payments received at the inception of a swap; and net amounts received from credit default swaps purchased with the identical reference obligation.

Notes to the financial statements as at September 30, 2016 (cont.) Note 2 – Principal accounting policies (cont.) 2.3 Valuation of swaps (cont.) 2.3.1 Credit default swap (cont.) Credit default swaps are marked to market at each NAV calculation date. The market value is based on the valuation elements laid down in the contracts, and is obtained from third party pricing agents, market makers or internal models. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on swap contracts”. Realised gains/(losses) and change in unrealised appreciation/depreciation resulting there from are included in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under the heading “Net realised gains/(losses) on swap contracts” and “Change in net unrealized appreciation/depreciation on swap contracts”. 2.3.2 Total return swap A total return swap is a bilateral agreement in which each party agrees to exchange payments based on the performance of an underlying instrument represented by a security, commodity, basket or index thereof for a fixed or variable rate. One party pays out the total return of a specific reference asset, and in return, receives a regular stream of payments. The total performance will include gains and losses on the underlying, as well as any interest or dividends during the contract period according to the type of underlying. The cash flows to be exchanged are calculated by reference to an agreed upon notional amount or quantity. To the extent the total return of the reference asset underlying the transaction exceeds or falls short of the offsetting payment, the Fund will receive a payment from or make a payment to the counterparty. Total return swaps are marked to market at each NAV calculation date. The estimated market value is based on the valuation elements laid down in the contracts, and is obtained from third party pricing agents, market makers or internal models. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on swap contracts”. Realised gains/(losses) and changes in unrealised appreciation/depreciation as a result thereof are included in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under “Net realised gain/(loss) on swap contracts” and “Net change in unrealised appreciation/depreciation on swaps contracts.” 2.3.3 Gap risk swap Gap risk swaps are valued based on the objective to limit the maximum cumulative loss over a predetermined period (a Floor NAV). In case the NAV of the Sub-Fund goes beyond the Floor NAV (a Gap Event), the counterparty of the swap will pay the Sub-Fund a value which will bring the NAV per share to the Floor NAV. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on swap contracts”. Realised gains/(losses) and changes in unrealised appreciation/depreciation as a result thereof are included in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under “Net realised gain/(loss) on swap contracts” and “Net change in unrealised appreciation/depreciation on swaps contracts.” 2.4 Valuation of contracts for difference swaps Contracts for differences are contracts entered into between a broker and the sub-fund under which the parties agree to make payments to each other so as to replicate the economic consequences of holding a long or short position in the underlying security. Contracts for differences also mirror any corporate actions that take place. Contracts for differences are valued based on the closing market price of the underlying security, less any financing charges attributable to each contract. Upon entering into contracts for differences, the sub- fund may be required to pledge to the broker an amount of cash and/or other assets equal to a certain percentage of the contract amount (“initial margin”). Subsequently, payments known as “variation margin” are made or received by the sub-fund periodically, depending on fluctuations in the value of the underlying security. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on contracts for differences”. Realised gains/(losses) and changes in unrealised appreciation/depreciation as a result thereof are included in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under “Net realised gain/(loss) on contracts for differences” and “Net change in unrealized appreciation/depreciation on contracts for differences”.

Notes to the financial statements as at September 30, 2016 (cont.) Note 2 – Principal accounting policies (cont.) 2.5 Valuation of futures contracts Futures contracts provide for the delayed delivery of the underlying instrument at a fixed price or for a cash amount based on the change in the value of the underlying instrument at a specific date in the future. Upon entering into a futures contract, the sub-fund is required to deposit with the broker, cash or securities in an amount equal to a certain percentage of the contract amount which is referred to as the initial margin account. Subsequent payments, referred to as variation margin, are made or received by the subfund periodically and are based on changes in the market Value of open futures contracts. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on future contracts is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on futures contracts”. Changes in the market value of open futures contracts are recorded as unrealised appreciation/depreciation in the statement of operations and changes in net assets under “Change in net unrealised appreciation/ depreciation on futures contracts”. Realised gains or losses, representing the difference between the value of the contract at the time it was opened and the value at the time it was closed, are reported at the closing or expiration of futures contracts in the statement of operations and changes in net assets under “Net realized gains/ (losses) on futures contracts”. Securities deposited as initial margin are designated in the statement of investments and cash deposited is recorded in the statement of net assets. A receivable and/ or a payable to brokers for the daily variation margin is also recorded in the statement of net assets. 2.6 Valuation of options contracts A purchaser of a put option has the right, but not the obligation, to sell the underlying instrument at an agreed upon price (“strike price”) to the option seller. A purchaser of a call option has the right, but not the obligation, to purchase the underlying instrument at the strike price from the option seller. Purchased Options – Premiums paid by the sub–fund for purchased options are included in the statement of net assets as an investment. The option is adjusted daily to reflect the current market value of the option and the change is recorded as unrealised appreciation or depreciation. If the option is allowed to expire, the Fund will lose the entire premium it paid and record a realised loss for the premium amount. Premiums paid for purchased options which are exercised or closed are added to the amounts paid or offset against the proceeds on the underlying investment transaction to determine the realised gain/loss or cost basis of the security. Written Options – Premiums received by the sub-fund for written options are included in the statement of net assets. The amount of the liability is adjusted daily to reflect the current market value of the written option and the change in market value is recorded as unrealised appreciation or depreciation. Premiums received from written options that expire are treated as realised gains. The sub-fund records a realised gain or loss on written options based on whether the cost of the closing transaction exceeds the premium received. If a call option is exercised by the option buyer, the premium received by the sub-fund is added to the proceeds from the sale of the underlying security to the option buyer and compared to the cost of the closing transaction to determine whether there has been a realised gain or loss. If a put option is exercised by an option buyer, the premium received by the option seller reduces the cost basis of the purchased security. Written uncovered call options subject the sub-fund to unlimited risk of loss. Written covered call options limit the upside potential of a security above the strike price. Written put options subject the Fund to risk of loss if the value of the security declines below the exercise price minus the put premium. The sub-fund is not subject to credit risk on written options as the counterparty has already performed its obligation by paying the premium at the inception of the contract. Outstanding options traded on a regulated market are valued based on the closing price or the last available market price of the instruments. OTC options are marked to market based upon prices obtained from third party pricing agents and verified against the value from the counterparty. The market value of options is included in the statement of net assets under the heading “Options bought/ (written) at market value”. The realised gains/(losses) and change in unrealised appreciation/depreciation on options are disclosed in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under the headings “Net realised gains/(losses) on options” and “Change in net unrealised appreciation/depreciation on options.”

Notes to the financial statements as at September 30, 2016 (cont.) Note 2 – Principal accounting policies (cont.) 2.7 Valuation of forward foreign exchange contracts Forward foreign exchange contracts represent obligations to purchase or sell foreign currency on a specified future date at a price fixed at the time the contracts are entered into. Non-deliverable forward foreign exchange contracts are settled with the counterparty in cash without the delivery of foreign currency. The values of the forward foreign exchange contracts are adjusted daily based on the applicable exchange rate of the underlying currency. Changes in the value of these contracts are recorded as unrealised appreciation or depreciation until the contract settlement date. When the forward contract is closed, the sub-fund records a realised gain or loss equal to the difference between the value at the time the contract was opened and the value at the time it was closed. The unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on forward foreign exchange contracts is disclosed in the statement of net assets under “Unrealised appreciation/(depreciation) on forward foreign exchange contracts”. Realised gains/(losses) and change in unrealised appreciation/depreciation resulting there from are included in the statement of operations and changes in net assets respectively under “Net realised gains/(losses) on forward foreign exchange contracts” and “Change in net unrealised appreciation/depreciation on forward foreign exchange contracts”. 2.8 Net realised gains or losses resulting from investments The realised gains or losses resulting from the sales of investments are calculated on an average cost basis. 2.9 Foreign exchange translation The accounts of each Sub-Fund are maintained in the reference currency of the Sub-Fund and the financial statements are expressed in EUR currency. The acquisition cost of securities expressed in a currency other than the reference currency is translated into the reference currency at the exchange rates prevailing on the date of purchase. Income and expenses expressed in other currencies than the reference currency are converted at exchange rates ruling at the transaction date. Assets and liabilities expressed in other currencies than the reference currency are converted at exchange rates ruling at the yearend. The realised gains and losses or unrealised appreciation and depreciations on foreign exchange translation are recognized in the Statement of Operations and Changes in Net Assets in determining the increase or decrease in net assets.
