LETTER FROM THE CHAIRMAN



Dear Shareholder


Enclosed herewith is the Notice of the Company's Annual General Meeting for 2008 to be held on 25 July 2008 at the Company's offices in Guernsey in accordance with the details set forth on the Notice.


In addition to the usual business, your Board is proposing a Special Resolution to amend the name of the Company after discussion with the Company's Manager, Morley Fund Management (Channel Islands) Limited, and legal advisers.


The proposal to change the name follows an announcement made in February 2008 by the Aviva Group, of which the Manager is part. This detailed the strategy for 'Aviva Investors', a single global asset management business for Aviva to capitalise on the strength of being part of one of the world's largest insurance groups and signal the globalisation of Aviva's asset management businesses and activities under one leadership and, from September 2008, one name. As a result of this, the Morley name will no longer be used and will be replaced with Aviva Investors.


Accordingly, it is proposed to change the name of the Company to 'Aviva Investors Alternative Funds PCC Limited'.




Yours faithfully



Richard Crowder



Chairman
