LONDON, January 31, 2011 - PensionDCisions announced today that the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office
has issued patent no. 7,844,527, "Method and System for Measuring Investment
Performance". PensionDCisions also has a patent pending in Australia.

According to the abstract released by the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office,
the invention may be used for measuring investment performance of personal
pension or investment portfolios, pooling data across employers and/or wealth
management firms. Applications include simplified portfolio reporting and
comparison of asset allocation strategies.

PensionDCisions enables objective analysis of the investment performance
experienced by individual consumers, providing a platform to better
understand both the factors contributing to this performance and the impact
performance has on consumer behaviour. This bottom-up perspective represents
a valuable innovation to help platforms, intermediaries and asset managers
improve the service they deliver in a large and growing marketplace.

Graham Mannion, Managing Director of PensionDCisions, said, "We saw a
need to bring transparency to the investment performance delivered to
consumers, and have been working hard since then to deliver that vision
to our partners and customers. We are very pleased that the USPTO has
recognised our intellectual property."
