It is your responsibility to be aware of and to observe all applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdiction.
Unless otherwise specifically indicated, the contents of any Electronic Communications are for informational purposes only, are not an official confirmation of any transaction, and are not a solicitation or an offer to buy a security or related financial product. Attachments to Electronic Communications may have additional important disclosures and disclaimers, which you should read. This disclosure, when referenced in an Electronic Communication, shall be deemed to have been reprinted in its entirety within the text of such communication.
The Site and the information contained herein does not constitute an offer or solicitation by Crawford Lake to purchase securities or investment advisory services. Any such offer may only be made by means of definitive offering documents including a subscription agreement or an investment management or similar agreement; any summary or information contained herein is incomplete and is qualified by reference to such document(s), including the risk factors referenced therein; and in the event of any discrepancies between the information herein and such document(s), such document(s) will govern.
The Site does not constitute a recommendation or advice by the Adviser; you should consult your own tax, legal, accounting, financial or other advisors about the issues discussed herein based on your specific risk profile and financial requirements, including the suitability of an investment in the strategy referenced herein (the "Strategy"), with the Adviser, or in any investment product managed by the Adviser. Any investor references provided by the Adviser, including reference herein to the identity of any investors, are intended to serve as references for the Adviser and its principals and their business conduct, and were not selected on the basis of the investment returns experienced by such persons; but rather upon the length and nature of their relationship with the Adviser and its principals.
The firm's initial management entity was Crawford Lake GP, LLC (the "General Partner"), in its capacity as general partner of the first vehicle to have been managed by the firm. As part of an ongoing institutionalization process, in 2013 the Adviser was formed to serve as the investment manager for all firm accounts. At that time, management responsibilities were transferred from the General Partner to the Adviser, though the General Partner continues to serve as general partner to limited partnerships under management by the Adviser. Reference to the operations of the Adviser before 2013 refer to those of the General Partner, and thereafter refer to the operations of both the Adviser and the General Partner. The Adviser and the General Partner changed their names to their current respective names in April 2015. SEC registration does not imply any level of skill or training.
Past performance is not an indication of future performance. Any investment is subject to the risk of loss of principal. The Strategy and any investment product managed by the Adviser is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Any investor must be able to bear the risks involved. There can be no assurance that the Adviser will be able to successfully implement the Strategy, or that any investment objectives or other targets or goals referenced herein will be achieved. The Adviser may modify its investment approach and portfolio parameters in the future, and has broad flexibility within the Strategy.

The Site provides general information only. Nothing in the Site is to be relied upon in making any investment decision. Users must carefully make their own investment decisions based upon their specific investment objectives and financial positions and using such independent advisors as they believe necessary.

The Site and the information contained herein are not directed at, or intended for distribution to or use by, any person or entity who is a citizen or resident of or located in any jurisdiction where such distribution, publication, availability or use would be contrary to applicable law or regulation or which would subject Crawford Lake or its affiliates to any registration or licensing requirement within such jurisdiction.
