Nature, Extent and Quality of Services Provided by BGFA


The Board reviewed the scope of services to be provided by BGFA under the Proposed Advisory Agreement and noted that there were no differences between the level or type of service provided by BGFA under the Current Advisory Agreement and the level or type of service proposed to be provided by BGFA under the Proposed Advisory Agreement. In reviewing the scope of services provided to the Fund by BGFA, the Board reviewed and discussed BGFA’s investment philosophy and experience. The Board also reviewed the background and experience of the persons responsible for the day-to-day management of the Fund. In addition to the above considerations, the Board reviewed and considered BGFA’s investment processes and strategies, and matters related to BGFA’s portfolio transaction policies and procedures. The Board noted that BGFA does not provide investment advisory services to any other fund or account seeking to track the same index as the Fund



and, therefore, no comparative performance information was available for additional consideration. The Board noted, however, that during BGFA’s term as investment adviser, the Fund had met its investment objective of seeking investment results that correspond generally to the price and yield performance, before fees and expenses, of the Fund’s underlying index. Based on this review, the Board concluded that the nature, extent and quality of services to be provided by BGFA to the Fund under the Proposed Advisory Agreement are appropriate and continue to support the Board’s original selection of BGFA as investment adviser to the Fund.
