Nomura Capital Management, LLC (“Nomura”, the “Investment Manager”) serves as the investment adviser of the Fund and is responsible for determining and implementing the Fund’s overall investment strategy. The Investment Manager is located at Worldwide Plaza, 309 West 49th Street, New York, NY 10019-7316. The Investment Manager was founded in May 2022 as a subsidiary of Nomura Holding America Inc. The Investment Manager is registered as an investment adviser with the SEC under the Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended (the “Advisers Act”).

Each repurchase offer will be for no less than 5% nor more than 25% of the Fund’s Shares outstanding. If the value of Shares tendered for repurchase exceeds the value the Fund intended to repurchase, the Fund may determine to repurchase less than the full number of Shares tendered. In such event, Shareholders will have their Shares repurchased on a pro rata basis, and tendering Shareholders will not have all of their tendered Shares repurchased by the Fund.

The Fund’s investment program is speculative and entails substantial risks. There can be no assurance that the Fund’s investment objectives will be achieved or that its investment program will be successful. Investors should consider the Fund as a supplement to an overall investment program and should invest only if they are willing to undertake the risks involved. Investors could lose some or all of their investment.

The shares are not listed on any stock exchange, and we do not expect a secondary market in the Shares to develop.

You should generally not expect to be able to sell your Shares (other than through the limited repurchase process), regardless of how we perform.

Although we are required to and have implemented a Share repurchase program, only a limited number of Shares will be eligible for repurchase by us.

You should consider that you may not have access to the money you invest for an indefinite period of time.

An investment in the Shares is not suitable for you if you have foreseeable need to access the money you invest.

Because you will be unable to sell your Shares or have them repurchased immediately, you will find it difficult to reduce your exposure on a timely basis during a market downturn.

An investment in the Fund involves risk. The Fund may use leverage its investments by borrowing. The use of leverage increases both risk of loss and profit potential. Alternative investments provide limited liquidity and include, among other things, the risks inherent in investing in securities, futures, commodities and derivatives, using leverage and engaging in short sales. The Fund’s investment performance depends, at least in part, on how its assets are allocated and reallocated among asset classes and strategies. Such allocation could result in the Fund holding asset classes or investments that perform poorly or underperform.

Investors should consider the Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses before investing. This information is included in the Fund Prospectus and can be accessed by calling 833-836-0206. Read the prospectus carefully before you invest.
