Public Trust's Growth Priority Fund has won the FundSource Diversified Growth Fund of the Year Award, it was announced
today. In winning this award, Public Trust has beaten a host of top-flight rivals - for the second year running
"The FundSource Diversified Growth Fund Award is determined after rigorous analysis using both quantitative and
qualitative factors. It recognises that Public Trust's Growth Priority Fund has, over the past three years, generated an
attractive return for investors with a suitably low level of risk." said Pat Waite, chief executive of Public Trust.
"With a net return of 10.4%, the award also caps off a great year for investors in our fund."
"Our managed funds are gaining substantial recognition from the industry with Public Trust being named Morningstar

Research's sector awards in 2003," said Mr Waite.
