General Risks of Investing in the Crestline Funds
An investment in the Funds is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. The Funds are generally not subject to regulatory restrictions or oversight. Crestline Management, L.P., is a federally registered investment adviser and provides investment advice through various affiliates and subsidiaries. Crestline Canada, Inc. and its subsidiary Crestline Canada Sub, L.P. are investment managers doing business in Canada that provide the “beta” overlay advice to Crestline Management, L.P. and certain Canadian trusts. Crestline Europe, LLP, registered with the Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), serves as the European investment adviser and is helping Crestline with investment diligence and analysis for its clients on certain primarily European opportunities. The Funds may employ leverage, which among other investment techniques, can make their investment performance volatile. Opportunities for redemptions and transferability of interests in the Funds are restricted so investors may not have access to their capital if and when it is needed. There is generally no secondary market for an investor’s interest in the Funds and none is expected to develop. The Funds’ management fees, incentive fees/allocations, and expenses, may offset their trading profits. An investor should not invest in the Funds unless it is prepared to lose all or a substantial portion of its investment.

CRESTLINE EUROPE, LLP
Crestline Europe, LLP is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the United Kingdom.
COMMITMENT TO THE SHAREHOLDER RIGHTS DIRECTIVE (“SRD II”)
To the extent the Firm is investing on behalf of investors in shares traded on a EEA regulated market or comparable markets, under COBS 2.2B.5R of the Financial Conduct Authority's (“FCA”) Conduct of Business Sourcebook, Crestline Europe, LLP (“Crestline” or the "Firm"), is required to publicly disclose a clear and reasoned explanation of why it has chosen not to:
Crestline Europe, LLP is currently operating under an Advisory Mandate, and as such is not managing the investments of shares traded on EEA and other comparable markets. Crestline Europe, LLP is a participating affiliate of Crestline Management, L.P., an investment adviser registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission, and assists Crestline with investment diligence and analysis on certain primarily European opportunities within Crestline’s opportunistic strategies. Crestline’s opportunistic investment strategy is designed to capitalize on market inefficiencies and dislocations caused by banking regulations, rules‐based investors in private debt, private equity, venture capital, and hedge fund strategies that eliminate investments outside of tightly defined mandates, and market volatility. Crestline will seek to provide capital solutions to under‐served or capital constrained asset classes, including small and medium‐sized businesses, out‐of‐favor sectors or assets, companies in some form of transition, and stressed or special situations. As such, exposure to listed companies is generally not a part of Crestline’s opportunistic strategy.
While the Firm generally supports the objectives that underlie SRD II, the investment strategy, and the nature of the financial instruments used to execute the strategy do not embrace engagement with investee companies, and the Firm does not consider that its clients expect such engagement.

Past performance as well as third party awards and ratings are not a guarantee of future results. It should not be assumed that the future performance of any Crestline fund will equal its prior performance results or the results of any previous fund with a similar strategy, and investors risk loss of their entire investment.
