                  Results of the Tender Offer and Tender Price

Results of the Tender Offer to purchase up to 24.99 per cent of the Shares in
issue of F&C Latin American Investment Trust PLC and announcement of the Tender

On 08 May 2006 at an Extraordinary General Meeting of F&C Latin American
Investment Trust PLC (the 'Company') held at 12.30 pm, the Shareholders
authorised the Company to purchase its Shares in accordance with the terms of
the Tender Offer as set out in the circular to Shareholders dated 12 April 2006
(the 'Circular') subject to certain conditions being met.

The Company is authorised to repurchase up to 24.99 per cent. (or 18,526,131
Shares) of its issued share capital at the Tender Price (a price per Share equal
to 98 per cent. of the NAV per Share on the Calculation Date, being 5 May 2006)
from those Shareholders on the Register on the Record Date of 4 May 2006.


Valid Tender Forms representing 21,339,597 Shares (which represents 28.78 per
cent of the issued share capital) were received by 3.00 pm on 04 May 2006, the
Closing Date for the Tender Offer.

The Basic Entitlements represented by those Shareholders validly tendering 24.99
per cent or less of their Shareholding were, in aggregate, 9,839,201 Shares. Of
the total Shares tendered, 11,500,396 were tendered by Shareholders in excess of
their Basic Entitlement (the 'Excess Shares').

The Tender Offer was over subscribed and will therefore be scaled back by 24.5%
of the Excess Shares.

All Shares purchased under the Tender Offer will be cancelled.

Tender Price

The Tender Price (equal to 98 per cent of the Net Asset Value per Share
calculated as at the close of business on 05 May 2006 (the 'Calculation Date'))
payable to Shareholders who have validly tendered Shares under the Tender Offer
is 683.31 cents per Share.  For the purposes of the Tender Offer, the NAV used
to calculate the Tender Price includes current period revenue and accumulated
revenue reserves.

It is expected that payments to Shareholders by cheque, in the case of
certificated holders, or payments through CREST, in the case of uncertificated
holders, will be made in pounds sterling based on the exchange rate as at 12 May
2006 and payments are expected to be despatched as soon as practicable after 15
May 2006.

Balancing share certificates will be despatched and CREST accounts will be
settled in respect of Shares not repurchased as soon as practicable after 15 May

Shares in issue

Following implementation of the Tender Offer 55,608,059 Shares will remain in
