Dear Shareholder The second year of your Companys operation has seen a very unsettled world political scene and mixed market environment. Just before I wrote the Chairmans statement for the first Annual Report of your Company in 2002, President Bush had addressed the United Nations and warned of the grave and gathering danger of Iraq and had requested the support of international leaders in the U.S. efforts to stem this danger. Despite the mixed international reaction to this call, military action began in mid-March of this year and was in its final throes when the Semi-Annual report of The Jupiter Global Active Fund was published. At the time I voiced the hope that the decisive action and swift conclusion of the main military operation would impact positively on international markets as a generally more confident outlook returned. To an extent this happened and can be seen in the accelerated recovery of markets during the second quarter of this year. Late 2002, early 2003 now seems to have been the bottom of the long slide in equity prices we saw over the recent years and we have seen a marked recovery in the main economies since. Over the period under review, the Dow Jones gained approximately 22%, the FTSE Actuaries World Europe Index 1.03% and the FTSE 100 about 10%. The economic recovery then slowed down in the summer month of August and the traditionally weaker September, and the generally slower recovery in Europe versus the U.S. dampened by a weak U.S. Dollar, which makes it that much harder for European companies to sell their goods and services overseas. Over the period, interest rates remained at very low levels helping generally weak economies in the U.S. and Europe to benefit early from the first impulses of recovery. In Europe, the Harmonised Index of Consumer Prices (HICP) rose 2.1% year on year, slightly above the European Central Banks 2% inflation ceiling. The individual portfolios of your Company have performed generally well over the past 12 months, with the UK Opportunities Fund in particular showing a slight outperformance over its benchmark. On the other hand, the Global SRI Fund lagged significantly behind its benchmark over the period. This was mainly due to the fact that the recovery, which particularly affected large traditional stocks, did not treat the small and innovative companies that this fund can invest in equally kindly. Since the end of this reporting period we have seen a further slowdown in the equity price recovery, but at the same time we are starting to see an increasing number of positive earnings surprises. On the whole, we are therefore optimistic that markets will continue to improve, albeit at a slower pace, over the next reporting period. Jonathan Carey Chairman 9th December 2003

At the beginning of 2003, apprehension over looming military action in Iraq depressed stockmarkets around the world. By March, the speedy conclusion of the war in Iraq marked a palpable turning point. Not only was immediate uncertainty removed, but increasing evidence of economic recovery in the U.S. also added to a new mood of optimism. Stockmarkets around the world rallied strongly led by the relatively volatile stocks of media and technology companies. Hopes of a broader economic recovery also increased investors appetite for risk certainly the markets fear of outright deflation has diminished. Economic data looks backwards while markets look forwards. Evidence from the U.S. suggested that both the manufacturing and service sectors were improving but there remained concerns over continued weakness in the labour market a possible jobless recovery. This matters since consumers have been the main driver of the economy during the period under review. In the eurozone, the spectre of deflation in Europe prompted the European Central Bank to soften its inflation objective and redefine its monetary policy strategy. The economies of France, Germany, Italy and the Netherlands all contracted in the second quarter of the year. European stockmarkets, however, enjoyed strong gains. Part of this rise was predicated on firmer signs of recovery in the U.S. and part was a reflection of a recovery in business confidence in France and Germany which reached a 14 month high during the summer. In Japan, markets saw a strong recovery as sentiment improved towards the banking and industrial sectors. Another important event during the period under review was the fall of the U.S. Dollar against the other major currency blocks. A weaker dollar puts pressure on European exporters while stimulating Asian economies whose currencies are often dollar-linked. The performance of the Fund was primarily driven by the substantial recovery in smaller-capitalised companies which, until March 2003, had been undervalued. Performance was also driven by specific trends within the core investment themes. Key smaller companies within the portfolio that have seen strong recoveries included: Whatman, RPS Group, Intercare Group, Wilmington Group along with overseas smaller companies such as Casella Waste Systems and Vacon. Strong performance also came from the Funds Transport Theme. The Fund saw solid recovery in companies such as FirstGroup, Go-Ahead Group and National Express Group on the back of increasing passenger numbers on trains; while the successful introduction of the London Congestion Charging Scheme saw significant increases in the number and frequency of bus routes operating within central London. Those holdings which underperformed relatively tended to be the non-cyclical and more defensive companies such as Huhtamaki Van Leer, Boiron and Cranswick where the leverage to potential uplifts in earnings was limited. Energy remains ever topical. During the period we witnessed a series of black outs that hit North America, Canada, Britain, Italy and Denmark. Such incidents highlighted the fragility of large electricity grid networks, in particular in North America. A number of companies including Stuart Energy Systems and FuelCell Energy, which operate in the air quality space with non-grid dependant systems, have benefited directly. One consequence of the black outs was an increased sense of the urgency required to pass through the long awaited U.S. Energy Bill. The Bill will potentially support further expansion of wind energy in the U.S. and stocks such as Vestas Wind Systems and Gamesa benefited in anticipation of this. The accompanying notes form an integral part of these financial statements.
One feature of the recovery in corporate profits witnessed during the last six months was that it came largely as a result of cost cutting rather than from significantly higher levels of sales. Investors still need to see a sustainable increase in top-line growth, although this now appears more likely. Growth-orientated companies should be the main beneficiaries. The forthcoming reporting season, particularly in the United States, will provide further clarity and guidance on this. With regards to emerging environmental and social trends, we do not see any slowing in the amount of regulation nor in the demands on corporate spending required in order to minimise their impacts. We are, however, aware that the rate of implementation is determined by the rate of economic growth. In general, with an improving outlook, I am confident that the growth approach within the portfolio can continue to perform.

As we entered the start of the period under review, the prospects for economic growth in the larger European economies were very modest. Industrial production continued to decline a reflection of low levels of demand and weakness was seen across almost all sectors of the economy. In particular, the German economy has been fragile and, somewhat belatedly, the European Central Bank acknowledged that interest rates were too high and cut them, albeit modestly. The stimulatory effects of cheaper money, however, were soon more than offset by an appreciation of the Euro against the U.S. Dollar. Export markets remained weak. At the beginning of 2003, apprehension over looming military action in Iraq depressed stockmarkets around the world, particularly in Europe. Unemployment in the eurozone area continued to rise while higher oil prices caused inflation to rise to levels which continued to exceed the 2% target set by the European Central Bank, thus making it difficult to justify further interest rate cuts. The euro, meanwhile, continued to strengthen against the U.S. Dollar further curbing export growth. By March, two year German bonds yielded a record low of 2.2% and the German DAX had touched a seven year low. For markets, the speedy conclusion of military action in Iraq marked a palpable turning point. Not only were feelings of uncertainty removed, but increasing evidence of economic recovery in the U.S. along with a better-than-expected reporting season also added to a new mood of optimism. Stockmarkets around the world rallied strongly led, as usual, by relatively volatile stocks in media and technology companies. Hopes of a broader economic recovery also increased investors appetite for the possible investment potential of turnaround situations. Towards the end of the period under review, companies were telling us that the worst was behind them. For the first time, too, there was evidence that the governments of Germany and France were prepared to push through some of the structural reforms which are a pre-requisite for creating a more flexible, stronger economy. Problems remain. As companies announced their results for the first half of the year it became clearer that, although the results were in line with consensus estimates, profitability still appeared more reliant on corporate cost cutting than on stronger sales growth. Indeed, it is notable how, in recent years, growth in the rest of the world has been so dependent on the U.S. The inability of Europe to generate strong internal demand remains a big problem. Domestic spending in Germany and the wider Eurozone, for example, has hardly grown at all. These economies have relied on exports for growth. Yet it is these exporting companies that remain at the mercy of the weak dollar policy being used in North America to revive the U.S. economy. It is precisely because macroeconomic upheavals are unavoidable that we are particularly careful to position the fund away from those companies that are inextricably dependent upon the economic tide and towards a collection of diverse money making opportunities whose fortunes depend mainly on their own efforts and superior business models. This is one reason why your fund seeks to invest in world-class businesses which just happen to be based in Europe. We remain convinced that it is vital to be invested in the right companies, which can grow their earnings without being overly reliant on the economic cycle. Judicious selection of companies with sustainable business models remains vital when there is still so much risk in the index. The accompanying notes form an integral part of these financial statements.

Net asset value per share FTSE World Euro Index
During the year under review the value of your units rose 3.68% compared to a move of 6.07% in the benchmark index. The key market movements were driven largely by swings in sentiment, first of pessimism in the run up to the Iraq war and then of optimism about the global economy. Our aim continues to be to invest in companies with visible, proven, sustainable earnings streams whose underlying performance is less subject than the market to such swings in the environment or its assessment. While the impact of animal spirits on the macroeconomy should not be underestimated, this renewed confidence has yet to manifest itself in the backward looking economic data. Furthermore, the structural problems facing European economies and companies suggest strong reasons why it may not do so in the medium term. At the least, the divide between corporate winners and losers is likely to increase over the coming years, with the latter weighing upon the general market indices. These clouds do, however, have silver linings. The global liquidity surge which has underwritten the cult of the equity over the last 30 years continues, at least for the present. The pressing nature of Europes economic problems suggests that companies which can offer solutions to them will enjoy a powerful following wind of demand and market support. Those companies which furthermore have a sustainable point of differentiation will be able to resist general pricing pressure and should flourish. These are the companies which we seek to identify, and which we believe comprise your portfolio. Although each of your shareholdings is selected on the basis of bottom-up stock-picking, we believe that each should also benefit from structural demand drivers. A number have powerful franchises in the pensions-critical savings and investment arena (RBS, Credit Agricole, Societe Generale, Euronext, Deutsche Boerse); others offer health related solutions to an ageing population (Essilor, Fielmann, Novo Nordisk, United Drug). Vossloh and Intertek should profit, inter alia, from the continued emergence of Eastern Europe and Asia, while Depfa Bank is uniquely placed to service growing public sector finance needs. E.biscom and BSkyB both offer innovative solutions in the media and communications sector. We believe that these companies, and the others in your portfolio, offer attractive investment returns regardless of the general European economic environment.
SUMMARY OF SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES Accounting Convention
The financial statements have been prepared under the historical cost convention as modified by the revaluation of investments and in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in Luxembourg.
Valuation of Investments
Securities listed on an official stock exchange or dealt on any regulated market are valued at the last available price. However, where such prices are not representative of the fair market value of the relevant securities, and in the case of unlisted securities, the value used is that which is considered to be a reasonably foreseeable sales price determined prudently and in good faith. Gains or losses arising on the disposal of investments are calculated by reference to the net sales proceeds and the average cost attributable to those investments.
Financial statements are presented for each Fund in the base currency of the Fund and the Combined Statement of Net Assets and Net Income are presented in Euros () based on the exchange rate ruling at the date of these financial statements. The difference between the opening net assets stated at the rates of exchange ruling at the beginning of the year and their value at the end of the year is shown as a currency translation adjustment in the Statement of Changes in Net Assets. Assets and liabilities in currencies other than the Funds base currency have been translated into that currency at exchange rates ruling at the date of these financial statements. Transactions occurring during the period in currencies other than the base currency are translated at rates of exchange ruling at the transaction dates.
Income and Expenses
Expenses, which do not relate specifically to a particular Fund, are allocated between the Funds in proportion to their underlying Net Asset Value or equally between the Funds, depending on the nature of the expenses. Dividends are credited to the Statement of Net Income when the security is quoted ex-dividend. Bank interest is recorded on an accruals basis.
Organisation costs have been written off during the first financial period of the Company.
AS AT 30th SEPTEMBER 2003 3. MANAGEMENT FEES
The Investment Manager is entitled to receive a management fee in relation to each Class of Fund. Such Fee is calculated and payable monthly in arrears and amounts to an aggregate of 1.75% per annum of the Net Asset Value of the L Class of each Fund, 2.5% per annum of the Net Asset Value of the N Class of each fund and 1.25% of the Net Asset Value of the I Class of each Fund. The Investment Manager may become entitled to a performance fee of 15% of the out-performance of the Net Asset Value per Share in any given Fund over the total return on the Benchmark Index for the Fund. Any performance fee earned by the Investment Manager will be accrued by the Fund and will be payable to the Investment Manager in arrears on the last day of the financial year of the Company. In order to ensure fair treatment of all Shareholders, regardless of the date of subscription or redemption of their shares, the published Net Asset Value per Share on each Valuation Day shall reflect an accrual for any Performance Fee which would theoretically be payable if that Valuation Day was the last day of the current financial year. The Investment Manager is responsible for discharging, from the management fees payable to it, the fees of the Investment Adviser and Distributors. Performance Fees in the amount of 9,101 have been accrued for the year ended 30th September 2003 (18,850 for the period 9th August 2001 to 30th September 2002).
ADMINISTRATION AND CUSTODIAN FEES
ADIG-Investment Luxemburg S.A., in its capacity as administrator is entitled to receive a monthly administration fee based on the average daily Net Asset Value of any given Fund, subject to a minimum annual administration fee 72,000 (or its equivalent) if the annualised Net Asset Value of the relevant Fund is less than or equal to 20 million. For the period 14th April 2003 through 15th October 2003, the administrator agreed to waive its fees for each Fund. The Bank of Bermuda (Luxembourg) S.A., in its capacity as Custodian of the Company is entitled to receive a Custodians fee which is calculated on the basis of the average monthly Net Asset Value of any given Fund together with certain transaction charges. The Custodians fee was subject to a minimum annual fee per Fund of 24,000 (or its equivalent) until 13th April 2003. For the period 14th April 2003 through 15th October 2003, the custodian agreed to reduce its minimum fee to 2,500 (or its equivalent) for the six month period for each Fund.
The Company is liable in Luxembourg to a tax (taxe dabonnement) of 0.05% per annum of its net assets, such tax being payable quarterly and calculated on the net asset value of the Company at the end of the relevant calendar quarter. Taxe dabonnement in the amount of 11,112 was payable for the year ended 30th September 2003 (6,524 for the period 9th August 2001 to 30th September 2002). Under current law and practice, the Company is not liable to Luxembourg taxes on income or capital gains, nor are dividends paid by the Company liable to any Luxembourg withholding tax. Capital gains and income from securities issued in other countries may be subject to withholding tax or capital gains taxes imposed by such countries.
