Important information about hedge funds: Hedge fund strategies are speculative and are not suitable for all investors, nor do they represent a complete investment program. GAM hedge fund products are only available to qualified investors who are comfortable with the substantial risks associated with investing in hedge funds. Many of the investment programs are speculative and entail substantial risks. An investment in hedge fund strategies includes the risks inherent in an investment in securities, as well as specific risks associated with limited liquidity, the use of leverage, short sales, options, futures, derivative instruments, investments in non-US securities, “junk” bonds and illiquid investments. Investors should recognise that they will bear asset-based fees and expenses at the fund of hedge fund level, and indirectly, fees, expenses and performance-based compensation of the investment funds in which these funds of hedge funds invest. In addition, the overall performance of fund of hedge fund products is dependent not only on the investment performance of individual managers, but also on the ability of a GAM investment manager to allocate assets amongst such managers on an ongoing basis. There can be no assurances that an investment strategy (hedging or otherwise) will be successful or that a manager will employ such strategies with respect to all or any portion of a portfolio. Hedge fund strategies may be leveraged and the volatility of the price of their interests may be great. Investors could lose some or all of their investments. Investing in securities of foreign issuers involves special risks including currency rate fluctuations, political and economic instability, foreign taxes and different auditing and reporting standards. These risks are greater in emerging market countries. The investment funds in which GAM fund of hedge fund products invest can be highly illiquid, are not required to provide periodic reporting or valuation information to investors and may involve complex tax strategies. GAM makes no representation that an investment in any GAM fund of hedge fund product will provide transparency as GAM cannot fully monitor the leverage of underlying funds and their day-to-day activity. The use of leverage may cause an underlying portfolio to liquidate positions when it may not be advantageous to do so in order to satisfy its obligations or to meet segregation requirements. Leverage, including borrowing, may cause a portfolio to be more volatile than if the portfolio had not been leveraged.
