Information for investors in Singapore: The Funds are not authorised or recognised by the MAS and interests in any Funds are not allowed to be offered to the retail public. This communication and any other communication or material in connection with the offer, sale, invitation for subscription or purchase of interests in any Fund may not be circulated or distributed, nor may interests in any Fund be offered, sold or be made the subject of an invitation for subscription or purchase, whether directly or indirectly, to the public or any member of the public in Singapore other than a person who is an accredited investor or an institutional investor (each as defined under the Securities and Futures Act (Chapter 289) of Singapore) (“SFA”) or unless otherwise permitted under any applicable exemption.

This communication and any other communication or material issued in connection with the offer or sale is not a prospectus as defined in the SFA and has not been registered as a prospectus with the MAS.

Each prospective investor should consider carefully whether the investment is suitable for him.
SIL, as general partner of SILP (SIL together with SILP and each of their subsidiaries and affiliates, the “Systematica Group”), was appointed as investment manager of the Funds on or after 1 January 2015 following the “spin-out” of the Systematica Group. Any Fund performance information in this communication relating to dates prior to 1 January 2015 illustrates the performance of the Funds whilst its predecessors were appointed as investment manager to the Funds. There is no guarantee that past performance of the Funds will be replicated under the management of the Systematica Group.
This communication is not intended to constitute, and should not be construed as, investment advice, investment recommendations or investment research. Potential investors in the Funds should seek their own independent financial, tax, legal and other advice. This communication has been provided to you for informational purposes only and may not be relied upon by you in evaluating the merits of investing in any securities or interests referred to herein or for any other purpose. This communication is not intended as and is not to be taken as an offer or solicitation with respect to the purchase or sale of any security or interest, nor does it constitute an offer or solicitation in any jurisdiction, including those in which such an offer or solicitation is not authorised or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such a solicitation or offer. Before making any investment decision you should obtain independent legal, tax, accounting or other professional advice, as appropriate, none of which is offered to you by the members of the Systematica Group or any of their affiliates. None of the members of the Systematica Group or any of their affiliates accepts any duty of care to you in relation to any investment in the Funds.
The terms of investment in any of the Funds described herein or any other Fund are solely as set out in the relevant Fund’s prospectus or private placement memorandum (including any supplements thereto), as the case may be, application forms and/or memorandum and articles of association or limited partnership agreement or instrument of incorporation, as the case may be (collectively, the “Fund Documents”). Before acquiring an interest in any Fund, each prospective investor is required to confirm that it has carefully reviewed the various risks of an investment in the Fund, as set out in the Fund Documents, and is required to acknowledge and agree to the existence of any actual and potential conflicts of interests described in the Fund Documents and waive, to the fullest extent permitted by any applicable law, any claim with respect to the existence of any such conflicts.
This communication may contain simulated performance results achieved by means of the retroactive application of the adviser’s investment methodology, or the real-time application of a hypothetical capital allocation to such strategy. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any particular trading program will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. One of the limitations of hypothetical performance results is that they are generally prepared with the benefit of hindsight. In addition, hypothetical trading does not involve financial risk, and no hypothetical trading record can completely account for the impact of financial risk in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points which can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program which cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical performance results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results.
Although the information in this communication is believed to be materially correct as at the date of issue, no representation or warranty is given as to the accuracy of any of the information provided. Furthermore no representation or warranty is given in respect of the correctness of the information contained herein as at any future date. Certain information included in this communication is based on information obtained from third-party sources considered to be reliable. Any projections or analysis provided to assist the recipient of this communication in evaluating the matters described herein may be based on subjective assessments and assumptions and may use one among many alternative methodologies that produce different results. Accordingly, any projections or analysis should not be viewed as factual and should not be relied upon as an accurate prediction of future results. Furthermore, to the extent permitted by law, SIL, SILP, SIUK SISPL, SIGPL the Funds, and their affiliates, agents, service providers and professional advisers assume no liability or responsibility and owe no duty of care for any consequences of any person acting or refraining to act in reliance on the information contained in this communication or for any decision based on it.
PAST, PROJECTED AND/OR SIMULLATED PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. Past, project and/or simulated performance may not be a reliable guide to future performance. The actual performance realised by any given investor will depend on numerous factors and circumstances. This communication may include returns for various indices. These indices are not intended to be direct benchmarks for a particular Fund, nor are they intended to be indicative of the type of assets in which a particular Fund may invest. The assets invested in by any of the Funds will likely be materially different from the assets underlying these indices, and will likely have a significantly different risk profile. The target returns, volatility and Sharpe ratio figures quoted are targets only and are based over the long term on the performance projections of the investment strategy and market interest rates at time of modelling and therefore may change.
Interests in the Funds and other investments and investment services to which this communication relates are only available to the persons referred to in the relevant paragraphs above, and other persons should not act on the information contained herein.
Any decision to purchase securities or interests with respect to any of the Funds described herein must be based solely upon the information contained in the Fund Documents, which must be received and reviewed prior to any investment decision. Any person subscribing for an investment must be able to bear the risks involved (including the risk of a total loss of capital) and must meet the suitability requirements relating to such investments. Some or all alternative investment programmes may not be suitable for certain investors.
Among the risks we wish to call to the particular attention of prospective investors are the following: (1) each Fund’s investment programme is speculative in nature and entails substantial risks; (2) the investments of each Fund may be subject to sudden and large falls in price or value and there could be a large loss upon realisation of a holder’s investment, which could equal the total amount invested; (3) as there is no recognised market for many of the investments of the Funds, it may be difficult or impossible for a Fund to obtain complete and/or reliable information about the value of such investments or the extent of the risks to which such investments are exposed; (4) the use of a single adviser group could mean a lack of diversification and, consequently, higher risk, and may depend upon the services of key personnel, and if certain or all of them become unavailable, the Funds may prematurely terminate; (5) an investment in a Fund is illiquid and there is no secondary market for the sale of interests in a Fund and none is expected to develop; (6) there are restrictions on transferring interests in a Fund; (7) SIL and its affiliates may receive performance-based compensation, which may result in riskier investments, and the Funds’ fees may offset trading profits; (8) the Funds are subject to certain conflicts of interest; (9) certain securities and instruments in which the Funds may invest can be highly volatile; (10) the Funds may be leveraged; (11) a substantial portion of the trades executed for the Funds take place on non-U.S. exchanges; (12) changes in rates of exchange may also have an adverse effect on the value, price or income of the investments of each Fund; and (13) the Funds are not mutual funds pursuant to and therefore not subject to regulation under the Investment Company Act.
