The Manager will not act for you (or any other investor) and will not be responsible to you for providing protections afforded to the clients of the Manager’s investment services. Without prejudice to the generality of the foregoing, the Manager does not provide any investment service to you (including, without limitation, the provision of investment advice, or the reception and transmission of orders).

This document is for information purposes only. This document is not intended to constitute an offering or placement, or the solicitation of an offer to subscribe for, units or shares in the Fund, in any jurisdiction.

The offering document for the Fund will contain important information concerning risk factors and other material information concerning the Fund. An investment into the Fund may expose a person accepted as an investor in the Fund to a significant risk of losing some or all of the amount invested.
Any forward-looking statements and/or uses of the future-tense should not be construed as promises, predictions, forecasts or commitments.
