It is your responsibility to be aware of and to observe all applicable laws and regulations of any relevant jurisdiction which relate to your use of this website.

1. Important Information

1.1 The information contained in this website (the "Website") relates to investment funds which are not recognised collective investment schemes for the purposes of the Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 of the United Kingdom (the "Act"). The promotion of these funds to, and access to this Website by, persons in the United Kingdom is accordingly restricted by law.

1.2 This Website is issued inside and outside the United Kingdom by IVC Holdings Limited ("IVC"), BVI registered number 309339. The registered address of IVC is Trident Chambers, PO Box 146, Wickhams Cay, Road Town, Tortola, British Virgin Islands.

1.3 This Website is directed only at persons who are professional clients or eligible counterparties for the purposes of the FCA's Conduct of Business Sourcebook. By accessing this Website beyond this point you represent and warrant that you are a professional client or eligible counterparty (as defined in the FCA Rules), and that you have read and understood these terms and conditions. Please consult your legal adviser or visit the Financial Conduct Authority website at for further explanation.

1.4 This Website and the information contained herein constitute a financial promotion for the purposes of the Act, and the Handbook of Rules and Guidance issued by the FCA as amended from time to time (the "FCA Rules").

1.5 This Website is exempt from the scheme promotion restriction (in Section 238 of the Act) on the communication of invitations or inducements to participate in unrecognised collective investment schemes on the grounds that it is directed only at the types of person referred to in 1.3 above. Accordingly:

(A) investment in the funds and participation in any other investment activity to which the Website relates are only available to such persons and this Website must not be relied or acted upon by any other person. In particular, any investment referred to on this Website is not intended for retail clients and will not be made available to retail clients;

(B) investors in the funds may not benefit from the rules and regulations made under the Act for the protection of investors, from the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, or from the Financial Ombudsman Service, or from any other protections afforded to retail clients under the FCA Rules; and

(C) shares in the funds may not be dealt in or on a recognised or designated investment exchange for the purposes of the Act and there may not be a market maker in such shares, and it may therefore be difficult for an investor to dispose of his shares otherwise than by way of redemption.

1.6 The distribution of the information contained in this Website in certain countries may be restricted by law and persons who access it are required to inform themselves of and to comply with any such restrictions. This information does not constitute an offer or solicitation in any jurisdiction in which such an offer or solicitation is not authorised.

1.7 The information provided on this 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 or which would subject IVC or its affiliates to any registration requirement within such jurisdiction or country.

1.8 This Website is published solely for informational purposes and has no regard to the specific investment objectives, financial situation or particular needs of any person. It does not constitute an offer to buy or sell, or amount to a solicitation or incitement or offer to buy or sell, any investments referred to herein. Information contained herein is believed to be reliable but no warranty is given as to its accuracy or completeness and views and opinions, whilst given in good faith, are subject to change without notice.

IVC neither provides investment advice to, nor receives and transmits orders from, investors in the funds described, or referred to, in this Website nor does it carry on any other activities with or for such investors that constitute "MiFID or equivalent third country business" for the purposes of the FCA Rules. Subscriptions for any of the funds referred to on this Website are to be made on the terms of the relevant prospectus and no reliance should be placed on the information on this Website. We strongly recommend that you seek professional, independent investment advice before making any investment decision.
