Statement of Directors' Responsibilities


In Respect of the Annual Report, Directors' Remuneration Report and Financial Statements


The Directors are responsible for preparing the Annual Report, the Directors' Remuneration Report and the Financial Statements in accordance with applicable law and regulations.


Company law requires the Directors to prepare financial statements for each financial year. Under that law the Directors have prepared the Group and parent Company financial statements in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRSs) as adopted by the European Union. In preparing these financial statements, the Directors have also elected to comply with IFRSs, issued by the International Accounting Standard Board (IASB). Under company law the Directors must not approve the financial statements unless they are satisfied that they give a true and fair view of the state of affairs of the Group and the Company and of the profit or loss of the Company and Group for that period. In preparing these financial statements, the Directors are required to:

• select suitable accounting policies and then apply them consistently;

• make judgements and accounting estimates that are reasonable and prudent;

• state whether applicable IFRSs as adopted by the European Union have been followed, subject to any material departures disclosed and explained in the financial statements;

• prepare the financial statements on the going concern basis unless it is inappropriate to presume that the Company will continue in business.


The Directors are responsible for keeping adequate accounting records that are sufficient to show and explain the Company's transactions and disclose with reasonable accuracy at any time the financial position of the Company and the Group and enable them to ensure that the financial statements and the Directors' Remuneration Report comply with the Companies Act 2006 and, as regards the Group's financial statements, Article 4 of the IAS Regulation. They are also responsible for safeguarding the assets of the Company and the Group and hence for taking reasonable steps for the prevention and detection of fraud and other irregularities.


The Directors are responsible for the maintenance and integrity of the Company's website. Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination of financial statements may differ from legislation in other jurisdictions.


Disclosure of Information to the Auditors

As far as the Directors are aware and to the best of their knowledge, having made enquiries, there is no relevant audit information of which the Auditors are unaware and the Directors have taken steps to make themselves aware of any relevant audit information and to establish that the Auditors are aware of such information.


Going Concern

The Board's assessment of the Group's position as at 30 April 2013 and the factors impacting the forthcoming year are set out in the Chairman's Statement and the Investment Manager's Report on pages 8 to 21 and in the Directors' Report which incorporates the business review and corporate governance statements.


The financial position of the Group, its cash flows, and its liquidity position is described in the Business Review on pages 46 to 55. Note 29 to the financial statements includes the Groups' policies and process for managing its capital; its financial risk management objectives; details of financial instruments and hedging activities. Exposure to credit risk and liquidity risk are also disclosed.


The Group has considerable financial resources and after making enquiries the Directors have a reasonable expectation that the Company and Group have adequate resources to continue in operational existence for the foreseeable future despite the continued uncertain economic outlook. Accordingly the Directors continue to adopt the going concern basis in preparing the annual report and financial statements. 


Responsibility Statement under the Disclosure and Transparency Rules

The Directors of Polar Capital Technology Trust plc, who are listed on page 42 and 43, confirm to the best of their knowledge:

• the financial statements are prepared in accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards as adopted by the European Union, and give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit of the Group and the undertakings included in the consolidation taken as a whole; and

• the Chairman's Statement, Investment Manager's Report and Directors' Report (together constituting the Management Report) include a fair review of the development and  performance of the business and financial position of the Company and undertakings included in the consolidation taken as a whole, and include a description of the principal risks and uncertainties.


The financial statements were approved by the Board on 15 July 2013 and the responsibility statement was signed on its behalf by Michael Moule, Chairman of the Board.
