Important Risk Considerations related to the Tradeable Index Strategies

Investing in any of the Tradeable Index Strategies involves significant risks, including but not limited to:

  • Past performance is not indicative of future results;
  • Investment related to the value of commodities, credit, fixed income or foreign exchange can be more volatile than traditional securities investments;
  • Commodity futures contracts that are the underlying of the C-IGAR strategies are subject to uncertain legal and regulatory regimes;
  • Owning an investment linked to one of the Tradeable Index Strategies involves risks associated with investing in momentum strategies;
  • Strategies that can take short positions potentially expose an investor to a theoretical unlimited loss; and
  • The Tradeable Index Strategies lack an operational history.
