March's statement - BLUE PLANET EUROPEAN FINANCIALS INVESTMENT TRUST Fund Manager's Review In March, our net asset value ("NAV") rose by 0.04% to 173.61p against a 3.1% rise in our Benchmark Index. After a 17.7% increase in the share price in February, it fell 14.5% in March to 142.0p. The fall in the share price has led to the shares trading at an 18.2% discount to NAV, which, we believe, is unwarranted given our strong track record of outperformance. The longer-term share price gains are 124.1% in the last year and 435.1% in the past three. This month's underperformance is largely attributable to short-term share price weakness in some emerging markets as US interest rates increased and we do not expect this to persist. The Trust remains ranked 1st out of all 20 investment trusts in the European Sector, both in terms of NAV and share price appreciation over one year by Trustnet and 1st out of 19 investment trusts over 3 years. In terms of its ranking against all conventional investment trusts, it was 3rd out of 259 in terms of share price appreciation and 4th out of 246 in terms of NAV over one year. Four of the companies we are invested in reported their full year 2005 results in March 2006. All were excellent. - Credit Agricole Net Income (NI) up 51.9% to €4.2bn. Earnings per Share (EPS) rose 55.7% to €2.68. Return on Equity (ROE) was 15.8%, up from 13.1% in 2004. Asset management, insurance and private banking all produced very strong results in 2005. Credit Agricole have now completed the integration of Credit Lyonnais and the costs of this integration were much lower in 2005 than 2004. - Banco Popolare di Verona. Results were reported under IFRS with limited restatements of 2004 data for comparison purposes. NI rose 36.6% to €597m. EPS was at €1.5. The Cost/Income Ratio (C/I) was at 56.1%. Costs were very well controlled in 2005 as business expanded. - Bank Austria Creditanstalt. NI increased 58.3% to €694m. EPS rose 58.5% to €6.56. ROE was 17.9%, up significantly from 13.3% in 2004. Operating profits were over 20% higher and business in Central and Eastern Europe made a significant contribution to this increase. - Raiffeisen International. Consolidated NI up 82.6% to €382m. EPS rose 44.6% to €2.79. Raiffeisen is expanding rapidly in CEE and Southeastern Europe. As part of this drive it purchased Aval Bank in the Ukraine in 2005. Aval Bank is one of the leading bank's in Ukraine and added a further 3.3m customers to Raiffaisen's bank network.

Foster, I'm in this one for a longer term punt. Considered selling a few weeks ago when the share price was just short of 170, but decided not to as such an action is usually a signal for the market to move off higher! So pleased with my top up and intend to hold for a year or two longer with this one. Good luck to all holders. Best wishes Z

Maybe concerns over russian holdings. 17% of BPL assets are in SBerbank which has done over-well recently and may drop.

Z ... well done and good luck; hope we get the anticipated rise. The volatility of the last few trading days, for no apparent reason, is curious. It should be possible to generate trading profits from this, but is the share price being manipulated? I checked with Squaregain today for the maximum online dealing size from the marketmakers. Between 12:30 and 12:40 (at least) they were quoting a maximum of 3750 shares bid but only 100 shares offer! Take care, automatic stoplosses may fail and a potential profit can easily become a loss.

Z ... another chance today! Today's NAV declaration (171.85 pence per share on the 17th March) puts the discount up to greater than 20% again. Good luck to all.

A number of reasons... Sharp fall in Russian index. Direction of interest rates NAV falling. Stop-losses being triggered. Plus charting negatives... Following the bounce above 50day average, the s p has now broken down through it. Symmetrical head-and-shoulder forming. Next resistance level in 125-135 range. Keep watching for another buying opportunity.

Fund Manager's Review In February, our net asset value ("NAV") rose by 7.8% to 173.5p, a record high, and the Trust outperformed its benchmark index, which rose 5.5%. Our share price continues to rise strongly, up 17.7% in the month, 139.5% in the last year and 430.8% in the past three. The shares are trading at a 4.3% discount to NAV. The Trust is ranked 1st out of all 20 investment trusts in the European Sector, both in terms of NAV and share price appreciation over one year by Trustnet and 1st out of 19 investment trusts over 3 years. In terms of its ranking against all conventional investment trusts, it was 2nd out of 260 in terms of share price appreciation and 3rd out of 246 in terms of NAV over one year. Seven of the companies we are invested in reported their full year 2005 results in February 2006. All were excellent. • DnB NOR Bank. Net Income (NI) up 23% to €10bn, Earnings per Share (EPS) rose 21% to €7.59. Return on Equity (ROE) at 18.8%. During the year DnB NOR and Norddeutsche Landesbank, NORD/LB established a jointly owned bank in the Baltic Sea region. • Piraeus Bank in Greece. NI up 61% to €283m. EPS up 105% to €1.33. ROE up to 21% from 14.9% in 2004. In 2005 the Bank crossed the threshold of 1.5 m customers in Greece and its loan portfolio increased 31%. • National Bank of Greece NI increased 100% to €727m and EPS up 151% to €2.08. Its Cost/Income ratio (C/I) improved significantly from 65.7% in 2004 to 54.2%. The key factors to their strong results were increasing revenues and a 40 basis point increase in net interest margin. • Bank Przemyslowo-Handlowy NI and EPS up 35% to PLN 1.0bn and PLN 35.8 respectively. ROE rose to 16.7% from 13.7% in 2004. Despite expansion in 2005 BPH managed to reduce operating costs and improve efficiency. C/I was 49.9% in 2005. • Societe Generale NI rose 36% in 2005 to €4.4bn. EPS up 35% to €10.9. ROE improved from 20.1% in 2004 to 25.3%. These full year results were boosted by a very strong final quarter of the year, in which NI rose 42%. • Finansbank in Turkey NI and EPS both rose by 68% to TRL 470 and TRL 0.495 respectively. Finansbank's loan book grew by 35% in the year. • Turkiye Garanti NI up 57% to TRL 708m. EPS up 57% to TRL 0.337. Garanti saw loan growth of 46% in the year.

bit of related write-up courtesy of Bedlam Asset Management, dated 10th Feb- We have exited the Russian bank following a tripling of the share price in under a year. Having reviewed our earnings forecasts we believed they fully factored in a blue sky trajectory for the Russian economy. In addition the stock reflected our projections, having exceeded our target price. The biggest risk for Sberbank over the next two years is a jump in its funding costs as the current excess global liquidity tightens. Sberbank is Russia's largest bank, and arguably the only one with a truly national branch network. The company is 60% owned by the Russian central bank, which on the downside leads to risk of over-staffing but on the upside means that Russians feel safe depositing their earnings in Sberbank. We expect that Sberbank will partake in the nascent Russian consumer boom, and has hired staff precisely for this. Sberbank owns substantial quantities of Russian government debt (which has recently been upgraded to investment grade and is being bought back by the government).
