Investment Strategy

According to the brochure submitted to IAPD, Generation Investments investment strategy is as follows:

Since Generation will invest primarily in equity securities, the risk of an investment in such securities is substantial. The value of portfolio investments should be expected to fluctuate, possibly significantly and unpredictably. The value of the portfolio investments and any income derived from them generally will be affected to a large degree by company-specific events and, to a lesser degree, by broad market movements.

Methods of Analysis

In addition, Generation Investments methods of analysis include:

Generation’s equity investments will include, but are not limited to, long positions in common stocks and warrants of U.S. and foreign issuers. Generation also can invest in depositary receiptsrelating to foreign securities. See “Foreign Securities” below. Equity securities fluctuate in value, often based on factors unrelated to the value of the issuer of the securities, and such fluctuations can be pronounced and sudden.

Investments in foreign securities entail the risk that news and events unique to a country or region will affect those markets and their issuers, including adverse economic, political or social developments. These same events will not necessarily have an effect on the U.S. economy or similar issuers located in the United States. In addition, investments in foreign securities generally will be denominated in foreign currencies. As a result, changes in the value of a country’s currency compared to the U.S. dollar can affect the value of the investments. These changes can occur separately from and in response to events that do not otherwise affect the value of the security in the issuer’s home country. Generation is not subject to any requirement that it hedges all or any portion of its exposure to non-U.S. or other base currency risks, and there can be no assurance that hedging techniques will be successful if used.

Generation can invest in the securities of companies in emerging markets. Investment in such markets involves risk factors and special considerations, including the following, which may not be typically associated with investing in more developed markets. Such risks include, among other things, trade balances and imbalances and related economic policies, unfavorable currency exchange rate fluctuations, restrictions on foreign investment, imposition of exchange control regulation by governments, withholding taxes, limitations on the removal of funds or other assets, policies of governments with respect to possible nationalization of their industries, political difficulties, including expropriation of assets, confiscatory taxation and social, economic or political instability in foreign nations. These factors can affect the level and volatility of securities prices and the liquidity of the investments of the underlying funds. Unexpected volatility or illiquidity could impair profitability and or result in losses. Political or economic change and instability may be more likely to occur and have a greater effect on the economies and markets of emerging countries. Adverse government policies, taxation, restrictions on foreign investment and on currency convertibility and repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of emerging countries in which investments can be made, including expropriation, nationalization or other confiscation could result in loss. By comparison with more developed securities markets, most emerging countries’ securities markets are comparatively small, less liquid and more volatile. In addition, settlement, clearing and registration procedures can be underdeveloped enhancing the risks of error, fraud or default. Furthermore, the legal infrastructure and accounting, auditing and reporting standards in emerging markets may not provide the same degree of investor information or protection as would generally apply to major markets.
