Information About Your Fund’s Expenses (Unaudited)


As a shareholder of the Fund, you incur two types of costs: (1) transaction costs, including sales charges (loads) on purchase payments, reinvested dividends, or other distributions, redemption fees and exchange fees; and (2) ongoing costs, including management fees, distribution and service (12b-1) fees; and other Fund expenses. The example below is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in the Fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other mutual funds.

The table below illustrates an example investment of $1,000 at the beginning of the period (June 1, 2011) and held for the entire period of 06/01/11 through 11/30/11. This example is intended to help you understand your ongoing costs (in dollars) of investing in the Fund and to compare these costs with the ongoing costs of investing in other mutual funds.

Actual Expenses

The first section of the table provides information about actual account values and actual expenses (relating to the example $1,000 investment made on 06/01/11). You may use the information in this row, together with the amount you invested, to estimate the expenses that you paid over the period. Simply divide your account value by $1,000 (for example, an $8,600 account value divided by $1,000 = 8.6), then multiply the result by the number in the first row under the heading entitled “Expenses Paid During Period” to estimate the expenses you paid on your account during this period.
 

 
Hypothetical Example for Comparison Purposes

The second section of the table provides information about the hypothetical account values and hypothetical expenses based on the Fund’s actual expense ratio and an assumed rate of return of 5% per year before expenses, which is not the Fund’s actual return. The hypothetical account values and expenses may not be used to estimate the actual ending account balance or expenses you paid for the period. You may use this information to compare the ongoing costs of investing in the Fund and other funds. To do so, compare this 5% hypothetical example with the 5% hypothetical examples that appear in the shareholder reports of the other funds.

Please note that the expenses shown in the table are meant to highlight your ongoing costs only and do not reflect any transactional costs, such as sales charges (loads), redemption fees, or exchange fees. Therefore, the second section of the table is useful in comparing ongoing costs only, and will not help you determine the relative total costs of owning different funds. In addition, if these transactional costs were included, your costs would have been higher. For more information on transactional costs, please refer to the Fund’s prospectus.

ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES

AMIDEXTM Funds, Inc. (the “Company”) was incorporated under the laws of the state of Maryland on April 27, 1999, and currently consists of one active portfolio, the AMIDEX35TM Israel Mutual Fund (the “Fund”). The Fund is a
non-diversified Fund. As a non-diversified Fund, it may invest a significant portion of its assets in a small number of companies. The Company is registered as an open-end management investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940 (the “1940 Act”). The Fund was registered to offer four classes of shares, Class A, Class B, Class C and No-load class, with only the Class A, Class C and No-load shares currently being offered in the AMIDEX35 TM Israel Mutual Fund. Each class differs as to sales and redemption charges, minimum investment amounts and ongoing fees. Income and realized/unrealized gains or losses are allocated to each class based on relative share balances. The Fund’s investment objective is long term growth of capital. The Fund became effective with the SEC on April 27, 1999 and commenced operations on June 8, 1999.

The following is a summary of significant accounting policies consistently followed by the Fund. The policies are in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“GAAP”).

a)      Investment Valuation - A portfolio security listed or traded on an exchange in domestic or international markets is valued at the last reported sale price of the primary exchange on which it trades before the time when the Fund values assets. Securities traded on more than one market are valued using the market identified as primary based on trading volume and activity. Equity securities traded on the NASDAQ National Market System are valued at the NASDAQ Official Closing Price. To the extent these securities are actively traded and valuation adjustments are not applied, they are categorized in level 1 of the fair value hierarchy described below. If there are no sales that day, such securities will be valued at the last bid price, if available. Other over-the-counter securities are valued at the last sale price, if published, or the last bid price, if available. Lacking any sales on the principal exchange that day, the security is valued at the last reported bid, if available and would be categorized as level 2. Debt securities with maturities of sixty days or less at the time of purchase are valued based on amortized cost which approximates fair value and would be categorized as level 2. Money market funds are valued at their asset value of $1.00 per share and are categorized as level 1. If market quotations are not readily available, or when the portfolio management team believes that a readily available market quotation or other valuation produced by the Fund’s valuation policies is not reliable, the Fund values the assets at fair value using procedures established by the Board of Directors. The Board members have delegated pricing authority to the fair valuation committee of the adviser, for certain pricing issues, as defined in the valuation procedures. Events affecting the value of securities that occur between the time prices are established and the New York Stock Exchange closes are not reflected in the calculation of net asset value unless the fair valuation committee decides that the event would materially affect the net asset value. If the event would materially affect the Fund’s net asset values, the security will be fair valued by the fair valuation committee or, at its discretion, by an independent fair valuation vendor. As of and during the six month period ended November 30, 2011, no securities were valued as determined by the Board of Directors.

In accordance with the authoritative guidance on fair value measurements and disclosure under GAAP, ASC 820, the Fund discloses fair value of its investments in a hierarchy that prioritizes the inputs to valuation techniques used to measure fair value. The objective of a fair value measurement is to determine the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in an orderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date (an exit price). Accordingly, the fair value hierarchy gives the highest priority to quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (Level 1) and the lowest priority to unobservable inputs (Level 3). The three levels of the fair value hierarchy under ASC 820 are described below:

Level 1
-
Quoted prices in active markets for identical securities.
Level 2
-
Other significant observable inputs (including quoted prices for similar securities, interest rates, prepayment speeds, credit risk, etc.).
Level 3
-
Significant unobservable inputs (including the Fund’s own assumptions in determining the fair value of investments).

The inputs or methodology used for valuing securities are not an indication of the risk associated with investing in those securities.

1.      ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

The following is a summary of the inputs used, as of November 30, 2011 in valuing the Fund’s investments carried at fair value:
 
Security Classification (a)
     
Level 1
     
     Common Stock - Israel (b)
  $ 7,817,149  
     Common Stock - United States (b)
    6,815,143  
     Short-Term Investments
    487,172  
Total Level 1
  $ 15,119,464  
         
Level 2
  $ -  
         
Level 3
  $ -  
         
Total Investments
  $ 15,119,464  

 
(a)
As of and during the six month period ended November 30, 2011, the Fund held no securities that were considered to be “Level 3” securities (those valued using significant unobservable inputs). Therefore, a reconciliation of assets in which significant unobservable inputs (Level 3) were used in determining fair value is not applicable. There were no significant transfers into and out of Level 1 and 2 during 2011.
 
(b)
All common stocks held in the Fund are Level 1 securities. For a detailed break-out of common stocks by major industry classification, please refer to the Schedule of Investments.

b)      Foreign Currency Translation - Portfolio securities and other assets and liabilities denominated in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars based on the exchange rate of such currencies against U.S. dollars on the date of valuation. Purchases and sales of securities and income items denominated in foreign currencies are translated into U.S. dollars at the exchange rate in effect on the transaction date. The Fund does not separately report the effect of changes in foreign exchange rates from changes in market prices on securities held. Such changes are included in net realized and unrealized gain or loss from investments. Realized foreign exchange gains or losses arise from sales of foreign currencies, currency gains or losses realized between the trade and settlement dates on securities transactions and the difference between the recorded amounts of dividends, interest and foreign withholding taxes, and the U.S. dollar equivalent of the amounts actually received or paid. Net unrealized foreign exchange gains or losses arise from changes in foreign exchange rates on foreign currency denominated assets and liabilities other than investments in securities held at the end of the reporting period.

c)      Federal Income Taxes - No provision for federal income taxes has been made since the Fund has complied to date with sub-chapter M of the Internal Revenue Code applicable to regulated investment companies and intends to comply in the future and to distribute all of its net investment income and realized capital gains to its shareholders.

The Fund recognizes the tax benefits of uncertain tax positions only when the position is “more likely than not” to be sustained assuming examination by tax authorities. Management has reviewed the tax positions in the open tax years of  2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 and during the six month period ended November 30, 2011 and concluded that no liability for unrecognized tax benefits should be recorded related to uncertain tax positions taken in the above open tax years. The Fund identifies their major tax jurisdictions as U.S. Federal and Maryland. The Fund recognizes interest and penalties, if any, related to unrecognized tax benefits as income tax expense in the statements of operations. During the six month period ended November 30, 2011, the Fund did not incur any interest or penalties.

d)      Distributions to Shareholders - Dividends from net investment income and distributions of net realized capital gains, if any, will be declared and paid at least annually. Income and capital gain distributions, which are determined in accordance with income tax regulations, are recorded on the ex-dividend date. GAAP requires that permanent financial reporting differences relating to shareholder distributions be reclassified to paid-in capital or net realized gain.

1.      ORGANIZATION AND SIGNIFICANT ACCOUNTING POLICIES (continued)

e)      Use of Estimates - The preparation of financial statements in conformity with GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions that affect the reported amounts of assets and liabilities and disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from those estimates.

f)      Redemption Fees and Sales Charges (loads) - Shareholders of the No-load shares that redeem shares within 365 days of purchase will be assessed a redemption fee of 2.00% of the amount redeemed. The redemption fee is paid directly to and retained by the Fund, and is designed to deter excessive short-term trading and to offset brokerage commissions, market impact and other costs that may be associated with short-term money movement in and out of the Fund. A maximum sales charge of 5.50% is imposed on Class A shares. Shareholders of the Class C shares are imposed a contingent deferred sales charge (“CDSC”) of 1.00% in the event of certain redemption transactions within thirteen months following such investments. The CDSC is paid directly to the Adviser to reimburse expenses incurred in providing distribution-related services to the Fund. For the six month period ended November 30, 2011, there were redemption fees of $2,844 paid to the Fund and CDSC fees of $329 paid to the Adviser.

g)      Other - Investment and shareholder transactions are recorded on trade date. The Fund determines the gain or loss realized from the investment transactions by comparing the original cost of the security lot sold with the net sales proceeds. Dividend income is recognized on the ex-dividend date or as soon as information is available to the Fund and interest income is recognized on an accrual basis. Withholding taxes on foreign dividends have been provided for in accordance with the Fund’s understanding of the applicable country’s tax rules and rates.

A separate plan of distribution has been adopted pursuant to Rule 12b-1 under the Investment Company Act of 1940 for each class of shares. With respect to Class A and the No-load class of shares, the plan provides that the Fund may pay a servicing or Rule 12b-1 fee of up to 0.25% annually of the Fund’s average net assets attributable to each class of shares, respectively, and up to 1.00% annually of the Fund’s average net assets attributable to Class C shares to persons or institutions for performing certain servicing functions for the Fund’s shareholders. The distribution plan is a compensation plan, which also allows the Fund to pay or reimburse expenditures in connection with sales, and promotional services related to distribution of the Fund’s shares, including personal services provided to prospective and existing shareholders.

5.      TAX MATTERS (continued)

The Fund’s distributable earnings on a tax basis are determined only at the end of each fiscal year.  As of May 31, 2011, the Fund’s most recent fiscal year-end, the components of distributable earnings on a tax basis were as follows:

Unrealized Appreciation
  $ 4,970,972  
Capital Loss Carryforwards
    (5,087,388 )
     Total Distributable Earnings, Net
  $ (116,416 )

The carryforward losses shown above differ from corresponding accumulated net investment loss and accumulated net realized gain (loss) figures reported in the statement of asset and liabilities due to differing temporary book/tax differences due to the tax deferral of wash sales.

Under current tax law, net capital losses realized after October 31st may be deferred and treated as occurring on the first day of the following fiscal year. As of May 31, 2011, the Fund has elected to defer net capital losses as indicated in the chart below.
 
Post-October Losses
Deferred
   
Utilized
$ -     $ 255,178


As of May 31, 2011 the Fund has capital loss carryforwards available for federal income tax purposes as follows:
 
Expiring in: 
2012
  $ (1,246,393 )
 
2013
    (323,400 )
 
2014
    (1,409,903 )
 
2015
    (1,009,874 )
 
2016
    (652,905 )
 
2017
    (393,230 )
 
2018
    (51,633 )
      $ (5,087,338 )

At May 31, 2011, the Fund had available for federal income tax purposes unused capital loss carryforwards of $5,087,338, which are available for offset against future capital gains, the use of a portion of which is limited by IRS regulations. To the extent this loss carryforward is used to offset future capital gains, it is probable that the amount offset will not be distributed to shareholders. Capital loss carryforwards in the amount of $100,824 expired during the year ended May 31, 2011.

6.      CONCENTRATION OF RISK

The Fund invests exclusively in common stock of Israeli companies. Investing in companies from one geographic region may pose additional risks inherent to a region’s economical and political situation.

A large portion of investments held by Fund are considered investments in the technology sector of the market. Investing in a single market sector may be riskier than investing in a variety of market sectors.

7.      BENEFICIAL OWNERSHIP

Please refer to the Trust’s Statement of Additional Information (“SAI”) for information regarding principal holders of securities. A current SAI, dated September 30, 2011, has been filed with the SEC and is incorporated by reference into this Semi-Annual Report.

8.      COMMITMENTS AND CONTINGENCIES

In the normal course of business, the Company may enter into contracts that may contain a variety of representations and warranties and provide general indemnifications. The Company’s maximum exposure under these arrangements is dependent on future claims that may be made against the Fund and, therefore, cannot be estimated; however, management considers the risk of loss from such claims to be remote.

9.      THE REGULATED INVESTMENT COMPANY MODERNIZATION ACT

In December 2010, the Regulated Investment Company Modernization Act of 2010 (the “Modernization Act”) was signed into law. The Modernization Act is the first major piece of legislation affecting regulated investment companies (“RICs”) since 1986 and it modernizes several of the federal income and excise tax provisions related to RICs. Some highlights of the enacted provisions are as follows:
 
New capital losses may now be carried forward indefinitely, and retain the character of the original loss. Under pre-enactment law, capital losses could be carried forward for eight years, and carried forward as short-term capital losses, irrespective of the character of the original loss.
 
The Modernization Act contains simplification provisions, which are aimed at preventing disqualification of a RIC for “inadvertent” failures of the asset diversification and/or qualifying income tests. Additionally, the Modernization Act exempts RICs from the preferential dividend rule, and repealed the 60-day designation requirement for certain types of pay-through income and gains.
 
Finally, the Modernization Act contains several provisions aimed at preserving the character of distributions made by a fiscal year RIC during the portion of its taxable year ending after October 31 or December 31, reducing the circumstances under which a RIC might be required to file amended Forms 1099 to restate previously reported distributions.
 
The provisions related to the Modernization Act for qualification testing were effective for the May 31, 2011 taxable year. The effective date for changes in the treatment of capital losses is the May 31, 2012 taxable year.

APPROVAL OF AMENDMENT AND RENEWAL OF INVESTMENT ADVISORY AND SERVICE AGREEMENT

A Special Meeting was held by the AMIDEXTM Funds, Inc.  Board of Directors (the “Board” or “Directors”), called for the purpose of considering the renewal of the contracts between II and the Fund. The meeting was attended in person by all Independent Directors and by the Chairman, Cliff Goldstein. The Board, and by separate vote, the Independent Directors, unanimously took the follow action;

The Fund’s Board of Directors has approved the renewal of the Fund’s Investment Advisory and Service Agreement and Administrative Agreement (the “agreement”) with Index Investments, LLC (II) for an additional one-year term through September 30, 2012. These agreements were approved by the Board. Due to the small size of the Board, the full Board acted as the Fund’s Contracts Committee and was composed of all of the Board’s Independent Directors. In considering approval of the agreement, the Directors reviewed a variety of materials relating to the Fund and the Adviser,  including comparative performance, fee and expense information for an appropriate peer group of similar mutual funds for each Fund (each, a “Peer Group”), performance information for a benchmark index for the Fund (each, a “Fund Benchmark”) and other information regarding the nature, extent and quality of the services provided by the Adviser and its affiliated companies, including performance, fee and expense information regarding each Fund provided to the Directors on a quarterly basis throughout the year.

The Independent Directors began the process of reviewing information and considering approval of the agreement in May. Prior to acting on the matter, the Independent Directors met with management to discuss responses to questions raised during the process. In addition, the Independent Directors received materials from their independent legal counsel discussing the legal standards applicable to their consideration of the agreement.

In considering the nature, extent and quality of the services provided by the Adviser, the Directors reviewed information relating to the Adviser’s operations and personnel. Among other things, the Adviser provided biographical information on its professional staff and descriptions of its organizational and management structure. In the course of their deliberations the Directors evaluated, among other things, information relating to the investment philosophy, strategies and techniques used in managing the Fund, the qualifications and experience of the Adviser’s investment personnel, the Adviser’s compliance programs and the financial and non-financial resources available to provide services required under the Advisory Agreement.

In considering the reasonableness of the fee payable to the Adviser for managing the Fund, the Directors reviewed, among other things, financial statements of the Adviser and an analyzis of the profitability to the Adviser and its affiliates of their relationship with the Fund over various time periods, which analyzis identified all revenues and other benefits received by the Adviser and its affiliates from managing the Fund, the costs associated with providing such services and the resulting profitability to the Adviser and its affiliates from these relationships on a Fund-by-Fund basis and as a group of Funds (the “Fund Family”). The Directors considered the current and anticipated asset levels of the Fund and the willingness of the Adviser to waive fees and pay expenses of the Funds from time to time to limit the total expenses of the Funds. The Directors concluded that the profitability to the Adviser and its affiliates from their relationship with the Funds is not excessive and that the Adviser is not realizing material benefits from economies of scale that would warrant adjustments to the fees for the Fund at this time. The Directors concluded that, in light of the nature, extent and quality of the services provided by the Adviser and the levels of profitability associated with providing these services, the fees charged by the Adviser under the Advisory Agreement to each Fund are reasonable.

The Directors concluded that the overall performance of the Fund has been satisfactory. In determining that the fees charged by the Adviser are reasonable, the Directors noted that, although the Fund’s management fees and total expenses are above the median for its Peer Group, such fees and expenses are within the range of fees and expenses of the Peer Group and consistent with reasonable expectations in light of the size of the Fund and the nature, quality and extent of the services provided by the Adviser. In this regard, the Directors noted that the Adviser has committed substantial resources to monitoring the valuation of portfolio securities and administering the Fund’s short-term trading fees in an effort to prevent the Fund from experiencing dilution from purchases and redemptions of Fund shares.

Based on all of the above-mentioned factors and related conclusions, with no single factor or conclusion being determinative and with each Director not necessarily attributing the same weight to each factor, the Directors concluded that approval of the Advisory Agreement would be in the interests of the Fund and its shareholders. Accordingly, on September 16, 2011, the Directors, including all of the Independent Directors, voted to approve continuation of the Advisory Agreement with respect to the Fund as reflected in the Resolution set forth below:
 
1.      Information Received
 
The current adviser, II, was approved directly by a vote of the shareholders in 2003. Since then, the Board, during its regular and special meetings, has received a wide variety of materials relating to the services provided by II, including reports on the Fund’s investment results; portfolio composition; portfolio trading practices; shareholder services; policies and procedures, and other information relating to the nature, extent and quality of services provided by II to the Fund. In addition, the Board has requested and reviewed supplementary information that includes extensive materials regarding the Fund’s investment results, advisory fee and expense comparisons, financial and profitability information regarding II, resources and facilities, descriptions of various functions such as compliance monitoring and portfolio trading practices, and information about the personnel providing investment management and administrative services to the Fund.

Review process - Throughout the year, the Board received assistance and advice regarding legal and industry standards from independent counsel to the independent Directors.

The committee discussed the renewal and amendment of the agreement with II representatives and in a private session at which no representatives of II were present. In deciding to recommend the renewal and amendment of the agreement, the Board did not identify any single issue or particular information that, in isolation, was the controlling factor. This summary describes the most important, but not all, of the factors considered by the Board.

Additional Information (Unaudited)

 
2.      Nature, Extent and Quality of Services
 
II, its personnel and its resources - The Board considered the depth and quality of II’s investment management process, including its research capabilities; the experience, capability and integrity of its senior management personnel, all of whom have been performing similar functions for the Funds for over six consecutive years; the low turnover rates of its key personnel; the overall financial strength and stability of its organization; and the ability of its organizational structure to address the recent growth in assets under management. The Board also considered that II made available a variety of resources and systems relating to investment management, compliance, trading, performance and portfolio accounting. They considered II’s commitment to investing in information technology supporting investment management and compliance. They further considered II’s continuity and the commitment of its personnel to continue to attract and retain qualified personnel and to maintain and enhance its resources and systems. The Board considered II’s creativity in responding to difficult situations, and considered the commitment of II personnel to finding alternatives and options that allow the Funds to maintain their goals despite relatively low assets under management.

Other services - The Board considered II’s policies, procedures and systems to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations and its commitment to these programs; its efforts to keep the Directors informed; and its attention to matters that may involve conflicts of interest with the Fund. The Board specifically noted II’s commitment to continuing a complete prohibition on trading of portfolio stocks by II access personnel. The Board and also considered the nature, extent, quality and cost of administrative, distribution and shareholder services provided by II to the Fund under the agreement and other agreements facilitated and coordinated by II, including the administrative, legal, and Fund accounting and treasury functions.

The Board concluded that the nature, extent and quality of the services provided by II has benefited and will continue to benefit the Fund and its shareholders.

3.      Investment Performance
 
The Board considered the Fund’s unique designs and compositions, index methodologies and the investment results of the Funds in light of these compositions and objectives. They compared the Israel Fund’s total returns with the other foreign Funds and indices, and other Israel specific investment Funds. The Board noted that Fund achieved investment results approximating their respective indices, and that II had maintained an acceptable correlation between the Fund portfolios and the respective indices. The Board considered the Fund in comparison to the one, three and five-year periods ended May 31, 2011. As further confirmation of the fund’s commitment to tracking its index, the Board also observed that, for the one, three and five year periods ending on May 31, 2011, the Fund ranked in the top thirty percent of its respective categories, despite a relatively small asset base. The Board concluded that II’s performance record in managing the Fund indicates that its continued management will benefit the Fund and its shareholders.
 
4.      Advisory Fees and Total Expenses
 
The Board reviewed the advisory fees and total expenses of the fund and compared such amounts with the average fee and expense levels of other funds. The Board observed that the fund’s advisory fees have not increased in the last two years, and no increase was proposed for the current year. The advisory fee itself is within the range of fees generally charged by foreign fund advisers and specialty fund advisers. Total expenses of the funds (each as a percentage of average net assets) were above the median expense levels of the other Funds in both categories. The Board noted that the small asset levels, coupled with increasing regulatory and related expenses, prevented realistic comparisons with other Funds. The Board and the committee concluded that given the very small asset levels of the Funds, it would be impossible for any adviser to operate the funds at average cost levels, and that II had done an admirable job in keeping fees at the lowest possible levels consistent with the small asset levels and compliance with shareholder service and regulatory standards. The Board was periodically updated by II on its repeated efforts to find other advisors or other platforms that might allow for more cost effective operation of such small funds. The Board concluded that although fund expenses were higher than category averages, such expenses were justified and unavoidable given the complex regulatory requirements, the unique composition of the funds, and most importantly, the very small levels of assets under management. The Board concluded that the fees charged by II for management of the portfolios were consistent with fees charged by comparable funds, but that total expense ratios were unavoidably higher than average due to small levels of assets under management. Further, the Board considered that II’s total revenue, due to the limited assets under management, was quite limited, and it would be unlikely to find another competent and capable adviser willing to advise the funds for so limited an amount of revenue. Hence, the Board concluded that continued contracting with II is in the best interests of the shareholders.

5.      Adviser Costs, Level of Profits and Economies of Scale

The Board reviewed information regarding II’s costs of providing services to the Funds, as well as the resulting level of profits to II, noting that those costs were high due primarily to the low asset levels of the Funds. The Board received information during the past year regarding the structure and manner in which II’s investment professionals were compensated and II’s view of the relationship of such compensation to the attraction and retention of quality personnel. The Board considered II’s need to invest in technology, infrastructure and staff to reinforce and offer new services and to accommodate changing regulatory requirements. They further considered that breakpoints in the Fund’s advisory fee structure provide for reductions in the level of fees charged by II to the fund as Fund assets increase, reflecting economies of scale in the cost of operations that are shared with Fund shareholders. The Board noted that II personnel have often gone for long periods of time with no pay or with pay substantially lower than industry averages, in order to allow for the continued operation of the Funds. The Board concluded that the Fund’s cost structure was reasonable and that II was sharing economies of scale with the Fund and its shareholders, to their benefit.

6.      Ancillary Benefits
 
The Board and the committee considered a variety of other benefits received by II and its affiliates as a result of II’s relationship with the Fund and with other entities and organizations, including fees for administrative services provided to certain share classes; fees paid to II’s transfer agent; sales charges and distribution fees received and retained by the Fund’s principal underwriter, and possible ancillary benefits due to II’s affiliates. The Board reviewed II’s portfolio trading practices, noting that II does not obtain third-party research or other services in return for allocating brokerage to any broker-dealers. The Board noted that II does not participate in any ‘soft-dollar’ relationships in exchange for research or brokerage services. The Board considered that with regard to the Israel Fund, the principals of II have developed exceptional exposure and reputations as leading spokespersons on Israel stock investments, and hence, add great value to the Funds in terms of marketing opportunities and credibility.

7.      Conclusions
 
Based on their review, including their consideration of each of the factors referred to above, the Board concluded that the agreement is fair and reasonable to the Fund and its shareholders, that the Fund’s shareholders received reasonable value in return for the advisory fees and other amounts paid to II by the Fund, and that the amendment and renewal of the agreement was in the best interests of the Fund and its shareholders.

Moreover, the Board was apprised of the history of the efforts by II personnel this past year and for several previous years to find alternative advisors able and willing to continue to meet the investment goals of the Funds at similar management fee levels. Although some advisors expressed interest in doing so, none proved to be financially capable of continuing uninterrupted operations of the Funds with such small amounts of assets under management. On two prior occasions, advisors attempted to do so but failed. The Board was satisfied with the accomplishments of II during the two years since II was elected by the shareholders as advisor to the Funds, and concluded that it was in the best interests of the shareholders to continue the relationship.
