Past performance is not indicative of future results and an investment in an investment fund involves the risk of loss. The investment fund is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. The information contained herein is as of the date indicated, not complete and is subject to, and qualified in its entirety by, the more complete disclosures, risk factors, and other terms and conditions contained in the respective offering documents of the respective investment funds.
Before investing in the fund, you should thoroughly review the offering documents with your legal, tax and investment advisors to determine whether an investment is suitable for you in light of your investment objectives and financial situation. An investment in the fund is not suitable for all investors. Performance results are net of all fund and investor adviser expenses and incentive fees, and reflect the reinvestment of interest, capital gains and other earnings. Performance results for 2022 and all subsequent periods are unaudited and are subject to adjustment. The returns shown may vary from the returns for each individual investor based on the timing of capital contributions and/or different fee arrangements.
A signiﬁcant portion of a fund’s investments may be invested in assets in illiquid investments and, therefore, will be subject to less frequent liquidity. The portfolio composition discussed herein is accurate only on the date set forth herein. The portfolio composition will change, and you should not expect the same or similar portfolio composition to be maintained at any time in the future. Asset allocation does not guarantee a proﬁt or protection from losses in a declining market. Investments, when sold, may be worth more or less than the original purchase price.
S&P 500 performance obtained from Bloomberg. References to S&P 500 are included for illustrative purposes only. It is not expected that funds will make investments in S&P 500 companies. Funds are expected to invest with a strategy that is different from a strategy of making equity investments across an index. Accordingly, investors should not expect that an investment would provide exposure that is similar to an index investment in S&P 500 companies or any other specific benchmark.
Estimated performance is unaudited and is anticipated to differ from audited, final performance numbers. Calculation of estimated performance varies by underlying investment based on the investment and its strategy. For investments made via external fund vehicles, performance provided by the manager is used for estimated performance or if not available historical returns and volatility are used to estimate performance. For those investments made through the broker, P&L from the broker is used.
Performance reflects that of the fund strategy as a whole, rather than that of any individual investor. Performance is calculated based on a pro-forma, full fee paying investor who invested at inception of the Fund and has not added to their investment or redeemed capital since. Returns were calculated on a monthly, time-weighted basis. Annual returns were calculated by geometrically linking monthly returns.
