Important Legal Information

All investments involve risks, including possible loss of principal.

Typically, the more aggressive the investment or the greater the potential return, the more risk involved. Generally, investors should be comfortable with some fluctuation in the value of their investments, especially over the short term. Diversification does not assure better performance and cannot eliminate the risk of loss. Hedge funds are complex instruments and may not be suitable for all investors. Investment in these types of hedge-fund strategies is subject to those market risks common to entities investing in all types of securities, including market volatility. There can be no assurance that the investment strategies employed by hedge fund and liquid alternative managers will be successful.

Investors should carefully consider a fund’s investment goals, risks, charges and expenses before investing.
