The information provided on the Website is not intended for distribution to, or use by, any person or entity in any jurisdiction or country where such distribution or use would be contrary to law or regulation. All persons and entities accessing the Website do so of their own initiative and are responsible for compliance with applicable local laws and regulations. The Website is not directed to any person in any jurisdiction where the publication or availability of the Website is prohibited, by reason of that person’s nationality, residence or otherwise.

Restrictions on Access to this Website by Investors in the United States: The Information is not directed at any person in the United States and this Website is not intended to be used by any person in the United States unless those persons are existing investors in Funds or Investments and they have applicable US exemptions.
The information contained on the Website does not constitute investment, legal, tax or accounting advice and is provided for information purposes only and on the basis that you make your own investment decisions, and Quantic Private Wealth Management (Middle East) Ltd. is not soliciting any action based on the Information. Past performance is not indicative of future results and nothing contained on the Website should be deemed a prediction or projection of future outcomes. The Information does not take account of your particular investment objectives or financial situation. The Information does not constitute, and should not be construed as, investment advice or a personal recommendation to buy, sell or otherwise transact in any investment including the Funds and/or Investments. Unless separately and expressly agreed, Quantic Private Wealth Management (Middle East) Ltd. neither provides investment advice to, nor receives and transmits orders from, nor carries on any other MiFID investment services and activities for users of this Website. The Funds and Investments referred to within this Website may not be suitable investments for you and you should therefore seek professional investment advice before making a decision to invest in any of the Funds or Investments.
Any investment involves substantial risks. Hedge Funds, Private Equity Funds, Venture Capital Funds and Private Debt Funds involve unique risks. The offering documents for each Fund contain risk warnings that are specific to the relevant Fund and which you should consider carefully before taking any decision to invest. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested and may lose all of their investment. Exchange rate changes may cause the value of overseas investments to rise or fall. The levels and bases of, and reliefs from, taxation may change. To the extent that any information on this Website refers to a particular tax treatment, such treatment depends on the individual circumstances of the investor and may be subject to change in the future. The list of risk factors above is not complete. An application for interests in any of the Funds or Investments should only be made having fully and carefully read the relevant prospectus, the latest financial reports and other offering documents for the relevant Fund. This is not a comprehensive disclaimer of risks.
This website may contain forward-looking statements with reference to Quantic Private Wealth Management (Middle East) Ltd. or the Funds. Forward-looking statements can be identified by words such as: “anticipate”, “aspire”, “intend”, “plan”, “offer”, “goal”, “objective”, “potential”, “seek”, “believe”, “project”, “estimate”, “expect”, “forecast”, “assume”, “strategy”, “target”, “trend”, “future”, “likely”, “may”, “should”, “will”, “proposed” and similar references to future periods. Forward-looking statements are neither historical facts nor assurances of future events or performance. Instead, they are based only on our current beliefs, expectations and assumptions regarding the future of our business, future plans and strategies, projections, anticipated events and trends, the economy and other future conditions. Because forward-looking statements relate to the future, they are subject to inherent uncertainties, risks and changes in circumstances that are difficult to predict and many of which are outside of our control. Some forward-looking statements and assumptions are based on analysis of data prepared by third-party reports, which should be analysed on their own merits and can be provided upon request. Third-party sources referenced are believed to be reliable but Quantic Private Wealth Management (Middle East) Ltd. cannot guarantee the accuracy or completeness of such information and has not reviewed the assumptions on which such information is based.
This website may contain certain forward-looking statements relating to the plans, objectives, opportunities, future performance and business of the Funds and the future performance of the markets generally. Actual results and financial conditions may differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Forecasts are based on complex calculations and formulas that contain substantial subjectivity and no express or implied prediction made should be interpreted as investment advice. There can be no assurance that market conditions will perform according to any forecast or that any Fund will achieve its objectives or that investors will receive a return on or of their capital. Any projections or other forward-looking information regarding the likelihood of various investment outcomes are hypothetical in nature, do not reflect actual investment results and are not guarantees of future investment results. There can be no assurance that unrealised investments will be realised at the valuations shown or in accordance with any return projections. Actual realised returns depend on, among other factors, future operating results, the value of the assets and market conditions at the time of disposition, related transaction costs and the timing and manner of sale, all of which may differ from the assumptions on which the valuations and projections contained herein are based.
Important factors that could cause our actual results and financial condition to differ materially from those indicated in the forward-looking statements include, among others, the following: our ability to maintain adequate revenue levels and cost control; economic and financial conditions in the global markets and regional markets in which we operate, including volatility in interest rates, commodity and equity prices and the value of assets; the implementation of our strategic initiatives, including our ability to effectively manage the redeployment of our balance sheet and the expansion of our strategic businesses; the reliability of our risk management policies, procedures and methods; continued volatility in the capital or credit markets; developments and changes in laws and regulations, including increased regulation of the financial services industry through legislative action and revised rules and standards applied by regulators.
