As with all investments, there are associated inherent risks. The prices of IPO securities fluctuate more than prices of equity securities of companies with longer trading histories. In addition, companies offering securities in IPOs may have less experienced management or limited operating histories. There can be no assurance that the strategy will have favorable IPO investment opportunities Additionally, by definition, there is no public market for private companies and there may never be a market for the shares in which the strategy decides to invest. Additionally, private companies are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as a public company and are not required to report on their financial status like public companies.
