Any potential investment in any investment fund, managed account or other vehicle described herein may not be suitable for all investors. Any prospective investment will require you to represent that you are an "accredited investor", as defined in Regulation D under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Most prospective investments will also require you to represent that you a "qualified purchaser", as defined in section 2(a)(51) of the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the "40 Act"). The investment vehicles, including hedge funds and managed accounts, described herein are not registered with the SEC as they have each claimed an exemption from such registration under the 40 Act. The securities and financial instruments described herein may not be available in all jurisdictions.
Potential investors should be aware that any direct or indirect investment in any investment vehicle described herein is subject to significant risks, including total loss of capital. Potential investors should also be aware that there are significant restrictions on transferability and redemption of interests in such vehicles. Investors should be able to bear the financial risks and limited liquidity of an investment in the vehicles described herein.
