This Presentation and the accompanying documents (the “Presentation”) do not provide or offer financial or other advice. You should not rely on it as financial advice.
The contents of the Presentation may not be reproduced or redistributed without the written consent of Gladstone Partners.

The Portfolio Composition (exposure, number of positions, duration and typical net exposure) is set out as a guideline. You should appreciate that the value of any investment, and any income from any investment, may go down as well as up and that an investor may not receive back, on redemption of his investment, the amount which he invested. Changes in rates of currency exchange may cause the value of an investment to go up or down. The performance results shown in this presentation are net of all fees and expenses (unless stated otherwise) and include the reinvestment of all dividends and capital gains. Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Inherent in any investment is the potential for loss.
The investments covered in the Presentation may not be dealt on a recognised or designated investment exchange for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 and it may therefore be difficult for an investor to dispose of such investments otherwise than by way of redemption or to obtain reliable information about the extent of the risks to which his investment is exposed.
