Each time you use this Website, a condition of use is that you comply with the terms of this Disclaimer as amended from time to time.
The information contained in this 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.
By agreeing to the terms of this Disclaimer and accessing this Website beyond this point you confirm your status as a professional client or eligible counterparty (an “Eligible Investor”) as defined in the handbook of rules and guidance issued from time to time by the Financial Conduct Authority of the United Kingdom or its successor entity (“FCA“) and (the “FCA Rules“) and you warrant as such.
Accordingly, the protections afforded to retail clients under the FCA Rules may not be available to you if you become a client of Global Systematic Investors LLP (“GSI”). You will not be able to sue GSI under sections 71 or 150 of the United Kingdom Financial Services and Markets Act 2000. Please consult your legal adviser or visit FCA for further explanation.
This Website is issued inside and outside the United Kingdom by GSI which is authorised and regulated by the FCA and is directed only at Eligible Investors.
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 Eligible Investors. Accordingly investment in the funds and participation in any other investment activity to which the Website relates are only available to Eligible Investors and this Website must not be relied or acted upon by any other persons.
This Website and the information contained in it constitute a financial promotion for the purposes of the Act and 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 and to comply with any such restrictions.
This information does not constitute an offer or solicitation in any jurisdiction. Prospective investors should inform themselves as to applicable legal requirements, exchange control regulations and taxes in the countries of their citizenship, residence or domicile.
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. 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. The information contained in this Website is not intended to constitute, and should not be construed as, investment advice. Potential investors in the funds that are described, or referred to, in this Website should seek their own independent financial advice. GSI 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.

Please remember that past performance is not necessarily a guide to future performance, the performance of funds is not guaranteed and the value of your investments can go down as well as up, so you may get back less than you invested. When investments have particular tax features, these will depend on your personal circumstances and tax rules may change in the future. Fees and expenses are deducted from capital, so whilst this maintains the level of income it may restrict the level of capital growth and could lead to a reduction in capital value.
GSI does not provide investment advice. If you are unsure whether an investment is suitable for your needs or circumstances you should seek independent professional advice. Before investing in a fund please read the Key Investor Information Document, Prospectus and Fund Supplement for full information.
You should note that, if you choose to invest in any fund described or referred to in this Website, your capital will be at risk and you may therefore lose some or all of any amount that you choose to invest.
