Chairman's Report for the Year Ended 31 March 2004
I am delighted to report a highly successful year for your trust: investment returns have improved substantially, the trust hosted an excellent annual community trusts' conference, and we completed and began implementing our three-year strategic plan.
Last year in this report, I said: "- trustees' faith in the investment policy may be giving rise to appropriate results in the current year to date." The global equities recovery continued throughout the year and this has enabled the trust to rebuild reserves depleted in the previous three years and has reinforced the trust's long-term, disciplined approach to investments.
In February, this trust hosted the combined community trusts' annual conference in Wairakei, Taupo. It is a credit to my trustees, the trust staff and ex-trustee Hilary Brown, our conference organiser, that this event, which significantly benefits trusts and trustee development, was so successful.
I am very happy to have the support of an excellent board of trustees. Their wide range of talent is leading the development and exploration of ways that this trust can improve its effectiveness in enhancing our communities. We have continued to develop our thinking and strategies on how we can improve our objective of enhancing Bay of Plenty communities. This has led us to set aside some funding for the coming year for investigation and pursuit of regional initiatives that have the potential to improve the economics of more deprived areas in our region. The trust has continued its support of the many volunteer, social and community enhancement projects that it has traditionally supported.
Please read this report and share with me the pride I have in this trust. As Bay of Plenty communities, we are very lucky to have such a fund dedicated to the many needs and wants of our area controlled at a grass roots level within our region.
RAY SHARP, Chairman.
Date: 3 June 2004.

4. Financial Instruments
Investments are stated at market value as at balance date. Accrued interest, accounts payable and donations approved not yet paid are stated at the amounts expected to be received or paid. Accordingly, the trustees consider that the fair value of each class of financial assets and financial liabilities is the same as the carrying value in the financial position.
Concentration of Investments
Ninety-nine point nine percent (99.9%) of the assets of the trust are represented by investments held with a range of financial institutions. However, the trustees consider the risk of non-recovery of these investments to be minimal. Maximum exposure to credit risk as at balance date is:

Currency Risk
The trust incurs currency risk as a result of investment transactions entered into by fund managers. The trust has a policy of fully hedging global bonds and fifty percent (50%) hedging global equities.
Interest Rate Risk
The following investments of the trust are sensitive to changes in interest rates: Bank call accounts and deposits, government and local authority securities, and securities held by fund managers.
Fair Value
The carrying value is considered to be the fair value for financial instruments.
5. Investments
The value of investments which are held in equities and fixed interest are subject to market fluctuations. The total investment portfolio is diversified in such a way that over time reductions in value in particular asset classes should be more than offset by increases in other classes. Investments are disclosed at market value at balance date and any gains (losses) arising from that treatment are shown as "investment gains (losses)" in the statement of financial performance. Therefore, no provision has been made for potential gains or losses that could occur due to future market fluctuations. The investment portfolio as at 31 March 2004 is diversified as follows:
