This material has been prepared for informational purposes only, and does not constitute an offer to sell, or a solicitation of an offer to buy, interests in any fund or to participate in any trading strategy. This material is being addressed only to qualified investors who have expressed an interest in attending the conference.  This material is not intended to provide, and should not be relied on for, accounting, legal, tax, or other advice.  You should consult your advisers regarding such matters.

PIMCO-sponsored private funds (the “Private Funds”) are exempt from registration under the  Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and interests in the Private Funds are offered in reliance on an exemption from registration under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.  Accordingly, investing in the Private Funds, which are expected to implement alternative strategies, involves a high degree of risk and prospective investors are advised that the Private Funds are suitable only for persons of adequate financial means who have no need for liquidity with respect to their investment and who can bear the economic risk, including the possible complete loss, of their investment. All investments contain risk and may lose value.  The Private Funds are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as registered investment vehicles. The Private Funds may be leveraged and may engage in speculative investment practices that may increase the risk of investment loss. The Private Funds are not typically restricted to tracking a particular benchmark. A Private Fund’s fees and expenses may offset its trading profits. The portfolio manager(s) are expected to have broad trading authority over a particular fund. The use of a single adviser applying generally similar trading programs could mean lack of diversification and, consequently, higher risk. The Private Funds generally involve complex tax structures and there may be delays in distributing important tax information. A substantial portion of the trades executed for certain Private Funds may be in non-U.S. securities and take place on non-U.S. exchanges. Certain Private Funds may invest in non-publicly traded securities which may be subject to illiquidity risk. Performance could be volatile; an investor could lose all or a substantial amount of its investments. Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results.
