Certain Risk Factors
The investments are speculative and involve a high degree of risk as more fully described in the risk factors section of the specific investor’s investment mandate.
Penso has investment authority with respect to the Client. If Penso were to cease to be associated with Client, it is likely that the success of its investment program would be adversely affected.
The Client employs leverage which, among other investment techniques, can make investment performance volatile.
Opportunities for redemptions and transferability of interests or shares held by the Clients are restricted so investors may not have immediate access to their capital.
The management and incentive fees and expenses incurred by the Client may offset the Client’s investment profits.
An investor should not invest in the Client unless it is prepared to lose all or a substantial portion of its investment.
No assurance can be given that the Client’s investment objectives will be achieved.
The Client may be subject to certain conflicts of interest as more fully described in each specific Client investor’s investment mandate or relevant Agreement.
