Summary

The QMS Diversified Global Macro strategy is a quantitative, systematic, long-short investment program, well-diversified across asset classes, conceptual investing themes, modeling approaches, and trading time-horizons. PURSUANT TO AN EXEMPTION FROM THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION IN CONNECTION WITH ACCOUNTS OF QUALIFIED ELIGIBLE PERSONS, THIS BROCHURE OR ACCOUNT DOCUMENT IS NOT REQUIRED TO BE, AND HAS NOT BEEN, FILED WITH THE COMMISSION. THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION DOES NOT PASS UPON THE MERITS OF PARTICIPATING IN A TRADING PROGRAM OR UPON THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF COMMODITY TRADING ADVISOR DISCLOSURE. CONSEQUENTLY, THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION HAS NOT REVIEWED OR APPROVED THIS TRADING PROGRAM OR THIS BROCHURE OR ACCOUNT DOCUMENT. The investment strategies described in this presentation carry certain risks, including the risk of loss of some, all, or amounts in excess of, the principal invested. Net returns are net of an annual pro-forma management fee of 2% and a pro-forma incentive fee of 20%, subject to a high water mark, that was assessed on an annual (calendar year) basis prior to March 2015 and on a quarterly basis beginning March 2015. The management fee deducted for 2012 and 2013 was 1.99%. Gross returns do not reflect the deduction of management or incentive fees. These gross returns would be reduced by the management and/or incentive fees charged to client accounts. Except as set forth in the next sentence, all returns are net of actual brokerage commissions, dealer spreads, give-up fees, NFA fees, exchange fees, and related transaction fees and expenses (collectively, “Transaction Costs”). Returns through May 1, 2011 do not reflect deduction of any Transaction Costs because Transaction Costs were not charged to client accounts during that period. Prior to April 2014, returns for commodity pools (“Pools”) for which QMS Capital Management LP (“QMS”) serves as commodity pool operator are net of custody and other operating expenses paid by such Pools. From April 2014 through January 2019, returns for Pools are gross of custody and other operating expenses paid by such Pools. If the operating expenses of the Pools were deducted from the returns during that period, the returns would be between 6 bps and 8 bps lower per year during that period. For February 2019 and forward, returns for Pools are net of custody and other operating expenses paid by such Pools. Returns include interest earned and interest charges on margin posted at FCMs/FX prime brokers for certain accounts. In addition, returns include Pools’ income from excess cash and cash equivalents, and income from futures exchange memberships owned by such Pools. Prior to June 2016, monthly returns are not compounded daily. Beginning June 2016, monthly returns are compounded daily. All annual returns are compounded monthly. All performance numbers are unaudited and subject to change. Performance numbers have been computed by QMS. QMS’s Diversified Global Macro strategy (the “strategy") commenced live trading in mid-May 2010. Performance numbers show the performance of a blended composite of all of QMS’s accounts (including client and proprietary accounts) that traded in the strategy for the full reported month. Performance numbers from May 2011 forward are computed by QMS using account-level performance numbers provided by NAV Consulting, Inc. ('NAV'), an independent fund administration service provider that is not affiliated with QMS. Performance through February 2011 is pro-forma, based on actual trading, scaled to 15% ex-ante annual volatility, and intended for illustration purposes. March-April 2011 performance is hypothetical, combining pro forma trading results, scaled to 15% ex- ante annual volatility, from March 1 to March 17, and a paper traded portfolio from March 18 through April 30. May-August 2011 performance numbers are derived from a live track record on the dbSelect Managed futures platform. This performance may vary from dbSelect reports, due to the deduction of transaction costs on dbSelect reports and differences in month-end prices used by NAV and dbSelect. Currently, the strategy trades commodity futures. Prior to May 2011, the strategy did not trade commodity futures. Excepting March-April 2011, the returns shown are derived from actual trading. Returns do not represent the return of any individual client of QMS. Individual client returns differed from the returns presented. This update contains hypothetical performance that is presented for illustrative purposes only and is not based on actual trading activities. The monthly performance numbers for March and April 2011 are hypothetical. All information in this presentation that is shown since inception includes these two months of hypothetical performance. Hypothetical performance assumes a constant notional account of $100 million and that profits were not reinvested. Hypothetical performance was generated by assuming that all trades were executed at the opening price on the day following the generated trade signals. Hypothetical performance results have many inherent limitations, some of which are described below. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to those shown. In fact, there are frequently sharp differences between hypothetical performance results and the actual results subsequently achieved by any particular trading program. 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 in actual trading. For example, the ability to withstand losses or to adhere to a particular trading program in spite of trading losses are material points that can also adversely affect actual trading results. There are numerous other factors related to the markets in general or to the implementation of any specific trading program that cannot be fully accounted for in the preparation of hypothetical results and all of which can adversely affect actual trading results. Hypothetical performance may not reflect the impact that material economic and market factors might have had on QMS’s decision-making had QMS actually been managing client money from March 18, 2011 to April 30, 2011. As noted above, QMS began trading commodity futures for the strategy in May 2011. Thus, the hypothetical portfolio from March 18, 2011 through April 30, 2011, did not include commodity futures. The information contained in this presentation has been prepared solely for informational purposes and is not an offer to sell or purchase or a solicitation of an offer to sell or purchase any interests or shares in funds managed by QMS. Any such offer will be made only pursuant to an offering memorandum and the documents relating thereto describing such securities. The risk of loss in trading futures and foreign exchange can be substantial. You should therefore carefully consider whether such trading is suitable for you in light of your financial condition. The high degree of leverage that is often obtainable in futures trading can lead to large losses, including the loss of some, all, or amounts in excess of, your entire investment. You should only invest risk capital. The information contained in this presentation is believed to be reliable but QMS makes no representation or warranty as to its accuracy or completeness. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE RESULTS. No representation is made that results similar to those shown can be achieved. This material is strictly confidential.

Investment Strategy

The QMS Diversified Global Macro strategy trades in highly liquid global futures and forwards, including equity indices, sovereign rates/bonds, commodities, and currencies. QMS believes substantial value is recognized by combining lower frequency fundamental economic views with higher frequency trades driven by market-based signals. A fundamental understanding of the economic environment most suitable for various models facilitates systematic tactical allocation among the styles of investing employed. Strict risk management is embedded in the portfolio optimization process and is managed at the individual model level, the thematic level, the asset class level, and the portfolio level. Over the long term, the strategy expects to generate returns uncorrelated to the asset classes in which it trades. QMS blends academic research with practitioner experience to source the best practices of quantitative investing and portfolio construction. The strategy targets an annualized standard deviation of daily returns of 15%.
