NEW YORK, June 28, 2013

NEW YORK, June 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Schroders, the $359.2 billion* global
asset manager, announced the addition of four new U.S. mutual funds as it
continues to expand its investment line-up for the U.S. market. Specifically,
the funds are the Schroder Long-Duration Investment Grade Bond Fund (Investor
Shares ticker: STWLX), the Schroder Broad Tax-Aware Value Bond Fund (Investor
Shares ticker: STWTX), the Schroder Emerging Markets Multi-Sector Bond Fund
(Investor Shares ticker: SMSNX) and the Schroder Emerging Markets Multi-Cap
Equity Fund (Investor Shares ticker: SMENX). Schroders has been in steady
growth mode in the US and the addition of these funds to its suite of products
is a reflection of Schroder's commitment to investing in and growing its U.S.
business. With the addition of these four funds, the Schroder U.S. mutual
funds family grows to 13 different options.

U.S. Fixed Income
The Schroder Long-Duration Investment Grade Bond Fund and the Schroder Broad
Tax-Aware Value Bond Fund are newly branded funds that were existing funds
managed by STW Fixed Income Management LLC, a fixed income asset manager
acquired by Schroders on April 2, 2013. These Funds are managed by six
portfolio managers dedicated to value-oriented fixed income. This team manages
over $11.2 billion as of March 31, 2013 and has an average of nearly 20 years
of experience in managing fixed income assets. Had STW been part of Schroders
on March 31st, the addition of the STW team and products would have increased
Schroders' assets under management in U.S. fixed income to $35 billion and
increased global fixed Income to $86 billion as of that date.

The Schroder Long-Duration Investment Grade Bond Fundseeks to achieve a total
return by investing in a portfolio of investment grade, long maturity fixed
income securities. Sector allocation and security selection are determined
based on an assessment of value rather than composition of the benchmark.

The  Schroder Broad Tax-Aware Value Bond Fund  seeks to maximize after-tax
total return over the long-term by investing in a portfolio of investment
grade fixed income obligations. It primarily invests in tax-exempt bonds but
will invest in taxable bonds when the portfolio managers believe they are
undervalued. Sector allocation and security selection are determined based on
an assessment of value rather than qualitative content of the benchmark.

"Schroders continues to focus on expanding its resources in fixed income,
which is evident in the recent acquisition of STW. The adoption of these two
mutual funds allows us to broaden our fixed income investment options
available to the advisor community", said Carter Sims, Head of US Intermediary
Distribution.

Emerging Markets
To further enhance Schroders' strong emerging markets capabilities offered in
the U.S., it has added two new funds to the platform.

The Schroder Emerging Markets Multi-Sector Bond Fund seeks to provide a return
of capital growth and income through investment principally in fixed income
securities of governments and companies in non-developed, emerging market
countries. This "multi-sector" approach integrates sovereign hard currency
debt, local currency rates and currency, and emerging market corporate debt
within an actively managed, strategic asset allocation framework that is less
benchmark-constrained. The Fund's portfolio managers average over 16 years of
industry experience and draw on the expertise of 30-plus credit analysts
across five continents, with in-market presence in seven major emerging
countries.

The  Schroder Emerging Markets Multi-Cap Equity Fund  takes an unconstrained
approach that invests across the emerging markets equity landscape broadly
across all market caps, with a focus on value, quality and yield. The team
manages over $34 billion in assets as of March 31, 2013 and has over a 13 year
record in managing global equity portfolios.

"We have continued to focus on bringing our global expertise to the U.S.
market, and the launch of the two new emerging market funds points to that
focus," said Sims. "Although the recent markets have been volatile, we expect
demand to continue to remain strong within emerging markets over the long term
as global growth continues to be sourced from these markets. We feel both of
the Funds are positioned extremely well to capture the next wave of growth in
each respective asset class."
