Final Results

FLEMING OVERSEAS INVESTMENT TRUST PLC
7 September 1999

                          
The Fleming Overseas Investment Trust plc today
announced its results for the year ended 30 June
1999.

The net asset value per ordinary share rose by 21.9%
over the  year compared with the 22.7% recorded by the
FT/S&P Actuaries World (ex UK) Index in sterling
terms  (capital only), the Company's performance
benchmark.

Revenue available for ordinary shareholders fell by
35.9% compared  to  the year to 30 June 1998. The
major  reason for this decrease has been the
reduction in assets due to the Company's share buy
back policy.

The  Directors  have  declared,  subject  to
shareholder approval  at the Annual General Meeting,
a final dividend of 2.45  pence per ordinary share,
such dividend  to  be paid  on  2 November 1999 to
shareholders on the register of members at close of
business on 8 October 1999.
The  Annual Report and Accounts for the year to  30
June 1999 will be sent to shareholders on 27
September 1999 at the latest and copies will be
available to the public  at the  registered office,
20 Finsbury Street, London,  EC2Y 9AQ after that
date.

The  Annual  General Meeting will be held on
Tuesday  26 October  1999  at  12.00  noon  at  The
Insurance  Hall, Aldermanbury, London EC2V 7HY.
