The Fund is not subject to supervision by the Financial Services Commission or a regulatory authority outside the BVI. Further, the requirements considered necessary for the protection of investors that apply to public funds in the BVI do not apply to private funds. An investment in a private fund may present a greater risk to an investor than an investment in a public fund in the BVI.
