The Content on the Site is intended for informational purposes only. We do not provide recommendations, investment advice or any other advice to you or any other User or party through the Site, and no information or material at the Site is to be relied upon for the purpose of making or communicating investment or other decisions. Without limiting the foregoing, nothing on this Site is intended to be, nor should it be construed or used as, financial, legal, tax or investment advice, an opinion of the appropriateness or suitability of any investment, or an offer, or the solicitation of any offer, to buy or sell any security, including an interest in any Pharo Fund. No such offer or solicitation may be made prior to the delivery of appropriate documentation to qualified Investors. Before making any investment, an Investor should thoroughly review the particular Pharo Fund’s information memorandum and subscription documents with the Investor’s financial, legal and tax advisor to determine whether an investment is suitable for the Investor in light of the Investor’s investment objectives, financial circumstances and tax situation. Investors must have the financial ability, professional experience and willingness to bear the risks of an investment. Any decision to invest in a Pharo Fund should be based on the final information memorandum for such Pharo Fund.
You agree not to invest in any Pharo Fund described or listed on the Site for a period of 30 days following when you first became a User of the Site (other than Pharo Funds in which you have already invested, have already been solicited for or in which you are already actively considering an investment).
There are substantial risks involved in investing in the Pharo Funds, which are not suitable for all Investors. The Pharo Funds may invest and trade in many different markets, strategies and instruments (including securities, managed futures, non-securities and derivatives) and are NOT subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds, including mutual fund requirements to provide certain periodic and standardized pricing and valuation information to Investors.
In addition to the disclosures contained herein, once given access to any password-protected part of the Site, you should read carefully any additional risk disclosures contained therein. If you wish to invest in a specific investment or product managed by Pharo you should refer to the risk warnings in the relevant information memorandum for that product or investment. Information and details of such investments or law or circumstances may change, and every Investor should conduct its own due diligence on any and all investments made or considered. All investments should be made with discretionary capital set aside strictly for speculative purposes.
Past performance is not indicative of future results. The value of investments may fall as well as rise and you may not get back your original investment. No representation is made that any Investor will or is likely to achieve its objectives, or that any investment strategy, investment process, investment objectives, targeted return, or risk management measures will be achieved or successful or that any Investor will or is likely to achieve results comparable to any shown or will make any profit or will be able to avoid incurring losses. Where an investment involves a foreign currency, it may be subject to fluctuations in value due to movements in exchange rates. These changes to exchange rates may also cause the value of an underlying investment to go down as well as up. The annual management fee is taken from the capital of the Pharo Funds and may constrain or erode capital. Any performance information is net of applicable fees unless otherwise noted and reflects reinvestment of income. Performance results may be estimated and are subject to change, finalization and audit and therefore may differ from actual performance.

III. USE OF SITE AND CERTAIN IMPORTANT DISCLOSURES
The Content is as of the date(s) indicated and is not a complete description of any investment, strategy or other product or services offered by Pharo and is subject to the more complete disclosures and terms and conditions with respect to such product or service. Certain of the Content, including investment returns, valuations, targets and strategies, may be supplied by third parties, and although believed to be reliable, has not been independently verified and its completeness and accuracy cannot be guaranteed. No warranty, express or implied, representation or guarantee is made that the use of this Site is free of risk or viruses or other damage. Access to and information contained on this Site is provided on an ‘as is’ basis and you have sole responsibility for the adequate protection and back-up of data and/or equipment and for taking reasonable and appropriate precautions to scan for computer viruses and other destructive properties.
Pharo and its employees or associated companies may have a position or holding in any investments or securities referred to on this Site. The Pharo Funds use leverage and utilize foreign, commodity and over-the-counter markets, all of which may involve significant risk.
Investments will vary in the discretion of Pharo. Any descriptions or information involving investment objectives, investment analysis, investment process, or investment strategies are provided for illustration and discussion purposes only, may be examples only, may not be fully indicative of any present or futures investments, may be changed in the discretion of Pharo, and are not intended to represent performance or suggest that any Investor will be successful.
Any return objectives, indices or financial benchmarks shown are used for illustration purposes only, are comparative measures or targets only, are unmanaged, reflect reinvestment of income and dividends and do not reflect the impact of advisory fees (except to the extent of underlying fees of the managers comprising a particular index of pooled vehicles). Investors generally cannot invest directly in an index. Comparisons to indices have limitations because indices have volatility and other material characteristics that may differ from a particular investment strategy. For example, a strategy may typically hold substantially fewer securities, instruments or futures than are contained in an index. Indices also may contain securities, instruments, or futures or types of securities, instruments or futures that are not comparable to those traded by any strategy. Therefore, performance may differ substantially from the performance of an index. Because of these differences, indices should not be relied upon as an accurate measure of comparison.
Any assumptions, assessments, statements or the like ("statements") regarding future events or which are forward-looking constitute only subjective views, estimations or intentions, are based upon Pharo’s expectation or belief, should not be relied on, are subject to change due to a variety of factors, including fluctuating market conditions and economic factors, and involve inherent risks and uncertainties, many of which cannot be predicted or quantified and are beyond Pharo’s control. Such risks and uncertainties include, without limitation, the adverse effect from a decline in the securities or futures markets, a general downturn in the economy, competition from other companies, changes in governmental policy or regulation, inability to attract or retain key employees, or inability to implement our strategies. Future events and actual results could differ materially from those set forth in, contemplated by, or underlying these statements. In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance that these statements are now or will prove to be accurate or complete in any way. Pharo undertakes no responsibility or obligation to revise, update or modify such statements, although it may do so in its discretion.
Site information regarding a Pharo Fund is as of the date indicated, is not complete, is for illustration and discussion purposes only.
IV. MANAGED FUTURES AND COMMODITIES
The Pharo Funds may invest in futures and commodities. Futures prices are highly volatile. Governments from time to time intervene, directly and by regulation, in certain markets, often with the intent to influence prices directly. Futures contract trading is typically accompanied by a high degree of leverage. Fluctuations in commodity interest contract prices may be limited by regulations referred to as "daily price fluctuation limits" or "daily limits." Even if futures prices have not moved past the daily limit, Pharo may not be able to execute futures trades at favorable prices if little trading in such contracts is taking place. Depending upon the size of an account, it may be difficult or impossible for Pharo to take or liquidate a position in a particular commodity, method or strategy. A principal risk in speculative trading is the traditional volatility in the market prices of futures and securities. Price movements may be incorrectly predicted and large losses could result.
Managed futures investments may perform differently than stocks and bonds. In addition, different types of alternative investments are frequently non-correlated with each other. This creates the potential to assemble a combination of alternative investments able to profit in different economic cycles and international markets, while reducing the portfolio concentration of traditional long equity and debt holdings. The performance of a managed futures investment can be anticipated to be generally unrelated, but may frequently be similar, to the performance of the general equity and debt markets.
The futures and forwards markets are fundamentally different from the securities markets in that for every gain in futures and forward trading there is an equal and off-setting loss. If a managed futures vehicle does not perform in a manner non-correlated with the general financial markets or does not perform successfully, Investors will obtain no diversification benefits by investing in such vehicle.
