Interim Results

Jupiter Split Trust PLC
01 September 2003

                            JUPITER SPLIT TRUST PLC

  Preliminary announcement of the unaudited results for the six months to 30th
                                   June 2003

                              CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

Your Company's total assets for the six month to 30 June 2003 rose by 11.9% to
£325.9 million.  This compares with a rise of 4.1% in the benchmark FTSE All
Share Index over the same period.

Revenue before tax for the six months was £5.2 million, which compares with £3.8
million for the same period last year.  An unchanged interim dividend of 3.62p
net per income share has been declared.

Significant outperformance of the benchmark during the six months was mainly the
result of a view that extreme caution was appropriate in the lead up to the
conflict in Iraq but that subsequently a far more positive view was appropriate.
This more positive view was and is based upon factors such as low valuations
of equities relative to bonds, growth in corporate activity and cost cutting,
and a likely recovery of economic activity given the stimulus of lower interest

Since March, the portfolio has been gradually shifted away from more defensive
companies into more economically sensitive companies.  At the period end, the
majority of the portfolio remained invested in the financial sector.  This
sector contains some especially lowly rated companies, which are geared into
stronger economic and stockmarket conditions.  By contrast, there are no oil or
pharmaceutical sector investments and only modest telecommunication sector

The geographical split of investments at the period end was 53% of total assets
in UK equities, 34% in European equities, principally Irish, with 4% in other
equities and hedge funds.

Since the end of June there has been a material rise in shareholders' funds.
There is room for cautious optimism that shareholders will see further
attractive returns as the Company approaches its final year of existence.
Careful consideration is now being given by the board to ongoing options which
can be offered to shareholders after October 2004 when the Company is due to be
wound up.
