Returns for the Proprietary Account and the Pool are net of custody and other operating expenses paid by the Proprietary Account and the Pool, which are capped at 50 basis points per year. Returns include the Proprietary Account’s and the Pool’s income from excess cash and cash equivalents. The Proprietary Account traded currency futures and not OTC currency forwards.
