We have informed our Executive Board that Greece is now in arrears and can only receive IMF financing once the arrears are cleared. I can also confirm that the IMF received a request today from the Greek authorities for an extension of Greece’s repayment obligation that fell due today, which will go to the IMF’s Executive Board in due course.” - Morningstar has downgraded the Neptune European Opportunities fund to a Morningstar Analyst Rating™ of Bronze. The fund previously held a Silver rating. The fund remains a solid choice as an unconstrained European equity offering, boasting a talented and longstanding manager in Rob Burnett. However, the risk-return profile of the fund has deteriorated over recent years as the manager has made a number of ill-timed shifts in the portfolio which have resulted in significant performance variability and heavily weighed on the fund’s three- and five-year risk-adjusted returns. Whilst Morningstar continues to think very well of Burnett and expects investors to benefit from his moves to limit short-term trading and make better use of the risk management tools at his disposal, Morningstar believes a Bronze rating provides a better reflection of the fund’s relative merits – The shares of Cassiopea were traded for the first time under the Main Standard of SIX Swiss Exchange, opening at CHF35.00.

UK DMO to reopen 2062 index linked gilt

Thursday, 09 February 2012
UK DMO to reopen 2062 index linked gilt The United Kingdom Debt Management Office (DMO) says it has appointed a syndicate to sell by subscription the forthcoming re-opening of 0⅜% Index-linked Treasury Gilt 2062. Bookrunners on the transaction include Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, RBS and UBS. http://www.ftseglobalmarkets.com/

The United Kingdom Debt Management Office (DMO) says it has appointed a syndicate to sell by subscription the forthcoming re-opening of 0⅜% Index-linked Treasury Gilt 2062. Bookrunners on the transaction include Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, RBS and UBS.

The DMO has appointed a panel comprising exclusively wholesale GEMM firms from which
it has chosen syndicate members for the conduct of the programme of syndicated offerings
in 2011-2012.

The re-opening of 0⅜% Index-linked Treasury Gilt 2062 will be the eighth and final transaction in the 2011-12 programme, which has raised £30bn to date.



Syndicated offerings of index-linked gilts have raised £15.4bn to date, relative to a planned target of £18.9bn.

The DMO expects that the sale will take place in the week commencing February 20th, subject to market conditions. Further details about the conduct of the offer will be announced in due course.

Co-lead managers were invited among the DMO's Index-linked GEMMs panel members.

The DMO financing remit for 2011-2012 was published alongside the UK Budget on March 23rd last year and included the provision for a programme of up to eight syndicated offerings to be held in
period to raise some £31.6bn (cash).

The DMO also announced on the same days its intention to implement the programme of syndicated gilt offerings in 2011-2012 more evenly across the year than in the previous financial year via smaller and more regular operations than in 2010-11.

At the Autumn Statement on November 29th last year planned sales by syndicated offerings of
long-dated conventional and index-linked gilts were each increased by £0.3bn, to £13.8bn and £18.9bn respectively, taking total planned sales to £32.7bn (cash).

By early December the DMO announced that it expected (subject to market conditions) to
re-open 3¾% Treasury Gilt 2052 by a syndicated offering in the second half of January
 and to sell an index-linked gilt by syndicated offering in the second half of February
2012.

On January 6th 2 the DMO then  announced that the index-linked syndicated offering
planned for the second half of February would be a re-opening of 0⅜% Index-linked
Treasury Gilt 2062.
