    • US Risk DisclaimerHYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANYACCOUNT WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE PROFITS OR LOSSES SIMILAR TO THOSE SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN HYPOTHETICALPERFORMANCE RESULTS AND THE ACTUAL RESULTS SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED BY ANY PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAMME.ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS IS THAT THEY ARE GENERALLY PREPARED WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT. IN ADDITION,HYPOTHETICAL TRADING DOES NOT INVOLVE FINANCIAL RISK, AND NO HYPOTHETICAL TRADING RECORD CAN COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK INACTUAL TRADING. FOR EXAMPLE, THE ABILITY TO WITHSTAND LOSSES OR TO ADHERE TO A PARTICULAR TRADING PROGRAMME IN SPITE OF TRADING LOSSES ARE MATERIALPOINTS WHICH CAN ALSO ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS. THERE ARE NUMEROUS OTHER FACTORS RELATED TO THE MARKETS IN GENERAL OR TO THEIMPLEMENTATION OF ANY SPECIFIC TRADING PROGRAMME WHICH CANNOT BE FULLY ACCOUNTED FOR IN THE PREPARATION OF HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS ANDALL OF WHICH CAN ADVERSELY AFFECT ACTUAL TRADING RESULTS.Simulated results presented in this presentation for Aspect Diversified are calculated by taking the historical market information available at the relevant point in time. Hypothetical trades relevant toeach current strategy are generated on the basis of this information. Positions are valued using the prevailing market prices at each point in time. Performance is calculated using these valuationsand subtracting fees of 2 per cent management and 20 per cent incentive, using standard methodology. Simulations are relevant to show the pattern of returns, but are not a forecast of futureperformance. There are many assumptions made, many of which may not prove to be accurate in actual trading. These figures are based on information believed to be accurate but have not beenaudited by a third party. Information is for illustrative purposes only. 3
