HEDGE INVEST INTERNATIONAL FUNDS plc BACKGROUND Hedge Invest International Funds plc (the “Company”) is an open-ended investment company incorporated in Ireland on 10 June 2010 with variable capital organised under the laws of Ireland pursuant to the Companies Acts 1963 to 2013 and the European Communities (Undertaking for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities) Regulations, 2013 (the “UCITS Regulations”) with registration number 485407. Hedge Invest SGR P.A. was the promoter of the Company as at period ended 31 December 2013. The Company is structured as an umbrella fund in that different funds (each a “Fund”, collectively the “Funds”) thereof may be established with the prior approval of the Central Bank of Ireland (“the Central Bank”). In addition, each Fund may have more than one share class allocated to it. The shares of each class allocated to a Fund will rank pari passu with each other in all respects except as to all or any of the following:     

currency of denomination of the class; currency hedging; dividend policy; the level of fees and expenses to be charged; and the minimum subscription, minimum additional subscription, minimum holding and minimum redemption applicable.

The assets of each Fund are separate from one another and are invested in accordance with the investment objectives, policies and restrictions applicable to each such Fund. The share capital of each Fund shall at all times equal its Net Asset Value (“NAV”). There were four Funds launched of which three were in operation at 31 December 2013, the HI Numen Credit Fund which launched on 10 June 2011, HI Principia Fund which launched on 31 October 2012 and HI Sibilla Macro Fund which launched on 22 November 2013 (the “Funds”). On 18 December 2013 the Central Bank approved the HI Core UCITS Fund and the supplement for the Fund. Total expense ratio The annualised total expense ratio (“TER”) shown below expresses the sum of all costs and commissions (including and excluding performance fees) charged to each Fund’s assets in line with the Company’s prospectus for the purposes of calculating the NAV, as a percentage of the average Fund assets, during the period. Period ended 31 December 2013 Annualised TER (%) (including performance fees)

In Q3 2013 the positive returns of the fund have been driven mainly (with the exception of the month of July) by our portfolio of sovereign bonds (in particular our exposure to Cyprus), thanks to the improved market sentiment surrounding the peripheral issuers in Europe and the progresses achieved by specific issuers in their recapitalisation/refinancing programs. On the special situations front the portfolio benefitted from positive returns of a long position in a convertible bond of an Italian real estate company and of a short position on a telecom operator facing credit deterioration and governance issues, which were however more than offset by other losses, particularly in a newly initiated special situation in the energy sector (a bond of an E&P Brazilian company).The portfolio of financials was a positive contributor through the quarter thanks to carry positions on bonds. In Q4 2013 the returns were positive across all months, again driven mainly by our portfolio of sovereigns (where we benefitted from positive mark-to-market on our Cyprus position and also crystallised profits on long positions in Portugal, BTP futures and Spanish Regions). The portfolio of financials also contributed positively (both thanks to carry in bonds and opportunistic participation to issuances in the primary market), whereas the portfolio of corporate/special situations was marginally negative for the quarter, as the positive contributions from our legacy position were offset by losses in the special situation in the energy sector initiated during the previous quarter (which was exited completely during the month of November). Market view and Outlook We expect European assets to outperform US and EM (“Emerging Markets”) assets. Now that we are witnessing a turning point in the monetary policy of the FED and other central banks, we expect consensual trades (EM, gold, US equities) to be slowly unwound and global funds flow to favour Europe. The overall rates volatility will justify Draghi to be even more aggressive and more creative in proposing and implementing new structural monetary and fiscal solutions soon. ECB will be politically required to do more and more, both in terms of regulation and assistance to debt adjustments of various countries. Angela Merkel was the clear winner of German elections but she will still need support from opposition to form a government coalition, and opposition will likely require concession in change of its support. Overall, we think the resulting coalition will represent a strong negotiator in Europe, and we believe Merkel herself will be predominantly focused on the sustainable long term solution. In the next few months we expect European banks to issue a substantial amount of capital, in anticipation to the asset quality review and stress tests. We expect European banks to take central stage in 2014. Liability side restructuring will continue, accelerated by ECB AQR and stress tests deadlines. The deleveraging process will continue in parallel, and the ECB will keep smoothing the process while testing new forms of QE to prevent rising global rates to derail European financial stability. Politicians will happily and conveniently let the ECB act and create a good pro-European sentiment to assist a smooth process for the European elections in May 2014, for which unemployment rate and growth numbers must be improved. We will see a continuation of repatriation of European savings back to Europe and plenty of USA investors coming back to Europe, and the clearer it will be that the banks restructuring this time is serious and far reaching.

Exposure The gross exposure of HI Principia ranged between 95% and 140% over the period. As at close 31 st December the Top 5 long positions represented 31.07% of NAV and the Top 5 short equity positions amounted to 13.92% of NAV. Market views & Outlook 2013 was a positive year for the European equity market. The stabilisation in the Eurozone combined with economic activity ceasing to contract meant that the European region became more palatable for global investors. The improvement in sentiment meant that the risk premium applied to Europe markedly declined and this led to an appreciation above 15% for 2013. As earnings expectations for 2013 declined the appreciation was driven by a re-rating of European equities. The forward earnings multiple has risen from approximately 11* earnings to just below 14* earnings which is in line with historical averages. We consider that the risk/reward ratio is evenly balanced towards European equities. Expectations for 2014/15 seem fair but not excessive, this equally applies to valuation. We see a more considered, stock picking environment to materialise rather than a strong directional one. We view that our long book has reasonable upside potential on a 2 year view. The short side is composed of companies where we consider expectations are full and valuation high enough. Our long term target remains to generate a return which more than compensates for the risk premium of holding equities. This translates into a high single digit to low double digit return with contained volatility.

Exposure The Hi Sibilla Fund utilizes a "double-hull" approach, by making investments when fundamental and quantitative measures confirm a view. The investment team employs a top-down approach which incorporates thematic views augmented by rigorous fundamental analyses and a series of proprietary models to exploit the best opportunities and major events in the global markets. The investment team keenly focuses on detecting market conditions using a disciplined framework and dynamically allocates to the appropriate asset classes in each environment. The fund avoids crowded trades by relying on original research and independent, proprietary analysis The average gross exposure during the last quarter of 2013 was 83% and the biggest positions were held in Long Stock Index Futures and Short Emerging Market Currencies. The biggest source of risk was the long position in US dollar. Market Views & Outlook At the December meeting, the Federal Reserve Board announced the beginning of the end of the asset purchases portion of the quantitative easing program. The reduction, at first, is quite modest with the amount of the asset purchases only declining by $10 billion per month. As a result, we expect that the process of curtailing asset purchases will begin to negatively impact the price of bonds, particularly in emerging markets and high-yielding commodity currencies. We believe that global equities outside of emerging markets, in particular European equities, will withstand tapering for some time before any impact is felt. Our portfolio is positioned to exploit the additional upside we expect in Europe and the U.S., although our exposure is moderate. The current risk-reward profile does not suggest full exposure is warranted, so a tactical approach for the time being will be employed. Our portfolio is further positioned in uncorrelated or inversely correlated securities designed to perform well in a market downturn and be resilient if the bull market rally continues. We identified a basket of currencies, including the New Zealand dollar, the Mexican peso, the Hungarian forint, the Polish zloty, and the Canadian dollar, which we believe can depreciate against both the Euro and U.S. dollar in almost all possible scenarios, especially a sudden reversal in risky assets. We also plan to take a short position in U.S. treasuries as we expect the 10-year yield to break out above 3% and lead bonds lower as the Fed scales back on bond purchases. Lastly, we are searching for a catalyst to take a short position in the Japanese 10-year bond futures as we believe that these bonds will eventually follow along the global downtrend in bonds.

HEDGE INVEST INTERNATIONAL FUNDS plc NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS For the period from 01 July 2013 to 31 December 2013 1.

Basis of preparation and significant accounting policies

The principle accounting policies and estimation techniques are consistent with those applied to the previous annual financial statements except as follows: Futures contracts A futures contract is a contract, traded on a futures exchange, to buy or sell a certain underlying instrument at a certain date in the future, at a specified price. The changes in value of open futures contracts are recognised as unrealised gains or losses by marking-to-market the value of the contract at the balance sheet date. Changes in the futures contracts’ value are settled daily with the exchange, by paying or receiving a variation margin amount. When the contract is closed, the difference between the proceeds from (or cost of) the closing transactions and the original transaction is recorded in the net gains/(losses) on financial assets/(liabilities) at fair value through profit or loss in the income statement. Statement of compliance The condensed financial statements are prepared in accordance with the International Accounting Standards 34 Interim Financial Reporting which prescribes the minimum content for an interim report. The condensed financial statements are also prepared in accordance with the UCITS Regulations. 2. Fees and expenses a) Investment management fees HI Numen Credit Fund The Investment Manager is entitled to a fee, payable out of the assets of the Fund, based on a percentage per annum of the Net Asset Value attributable to the relevant Share class as set out in the table below, which is accrued as of each Dealing Day and paid monthly in arrears.

HEDGE INVEST INTERNATIONAL FUNDS plc NOTES TO THE CONDENSED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS (continued) For the period from 01 July 2013 to 31 December 2013 2. Fees and expenses (continued) b) Performance fees HI Numen Credit Fund From 19 October 2012, a performance fee in respect of each share class of the HI Numen Credit Fund, with the exception of the EUR Management share class and Sterling Management share class (the “Management Shares”, collectively the “Applicable Share Classes”), equal to 10% (in the case of the EUR I Initial Share class) or 15% (in the case of all Applicable Share Classes, other than the EUR I Initial Share class) of the increase of the NAV per share of the relevant Applicable Share Class outstanding in respect of each performance period above the average weekly Euro interbank interest offer rate (“EURIBOR”) from the end of the preceding performance period until the end of the current performance period, expressed as an annual percentage, plus 1.00%, to be adjusted for the actual number of days from the end of the preceding performance period until the end of the current performance period (the “Hurdle Performance”) and subject to a high water mark shall be payable. Performance period refers to each calendar quarter ending 31 December, 31 March, 30 June, and 30 September. For the period from 31 December 2013 the performance fee in respect of each share class of the HI Numen Credit Fund (with the exception of the EUR Management Shares) was payable at a rate of 15% in respect of the EUR I Shares and EUR R Shares and 10% in respect of EUR A Initial Shares and EUR I Initial Shares, when the performance of the Net Asset Value per Share of the relevant class exceeds the high water mark. No Performance Fees are payable in respect of the Management Shares of the HI Numen Credit Fund.

The performance fee incurred by the Fund amounted to EUR 1,030,193 for the period ended 31 December 2013 (year ended 30 June 2013: EUR 255,668; period ended 31 December 2012: EUR 956) of which EUR 649,680 was outstanding as at 31 December 2013 (year ended 30 June 2013: EUR 632; period ended 31 December 2012: EUR 956).

As the performance fee depends on the performance of the Net Asset Value per Share of the class in question, it is not possible to predict the amount of performance fee that will be payable and there is in effect, no maximum performance fee as it is impossible to quantify any outperformance in advance. The performance fee incurred by the Fund amounted to EUR 27,580 for the period ended 31 December 2013 of which EUR 27,580 was outstanding as at 31 December 2013. 25
