No Offer of Securities
THE WEBSITE AND ALL INFORMATION THEREIN ARE FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A SOLICITATION FOR INVESTMENT IN ANY VOLEON MANAGED OR ADVISED FUNDS (THE “FUNDS”). IT DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER FOR SALE OF SHARES OR INTERESTS THAT MAY BE ISSUED BY ANY OF THESE FUNDS OR ANY INVESTMENT ADVISORY SERVICES OFFERED BY VOLEON. SUBSCRIPTIONS FOR INTERESTS IN THE FUNDS MAY BE TENDERED ONLY BY PERSONS WHO HAVE REVIEWED THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE CONFIDENTIAL PRIVATE PLACEMENT MEMORANDUM OR THE CONFIDENTIAL OFFERING CIRCULAR OF THE FUNDS (COLLECTIVELY, THE “OFFERING MEMORANDA”) RELATED TO THE INVESTMENT IN THE FUNDS AND BY PERSONS WHO HAVE COMPLETED AND EXECUTED A SUBSCRIPTION AGREEMENT RELATING TO THE FUNDS, ONLY IN JURISDICTIONS IN WHICH SUCH AN OFFER WOULD BE LAWFUL, AND ONLY TO INVESTORS WHO MEET THE INVESTOR SUITABILITY AND SOPHISTICATION REQUIREMENTS OF EACH SUCH INVESTMENT AS DETERMINED BY VOLEON IN ITS SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION.
PAST RESULTS ARE NOT INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE.
The Website, the Offering Memoranda, and any communication from Voleon should not be construed as financial, legal, accounting, tax, or investment advice. An investment in the Funds presents substantial risks and investors should be prepared to suffer a complete loss of their entire investment. Prior to making an investment decision, an investor should conduct such investigations and examinations as such investor deems necessary in order to determine if an investment in the Funds is appropriate and suitable for such investor, including the merits and risks involved. Each investor should consult its own financial, legal, accounting, and tax advisers in order to determine the consequences of an investment in the Funds and to make an independent evaluation of such investment. There can be no assurance that the Funds’ investment objectives will be achieved or the investment strategies will be successful. An investment in the Funds involves a high degree of risk, including the risk that the entire amount invested is lost.
