Results are shown net of costs, fees and incentive allocations and are unaudited. The performance results of the Funds are based on what an investor would have achieved if he/she had invested in the Funds since inception.

V. BUSINESS CONTINUITY DISCLOSURE
Greentech Capital Advisors has designed a business continuity plan (“BCP”) to evaluate and manage a potential significant disruption to its business operations so that we may continue critical business functions in the event of an emergency. Critical functions include the storage and preservation of data, alternate communications with clients and regulators and alternate communications with employees. Since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions is unpredictable, Greentech Capital Advisors must be flexible in responding to actual events as they occur. With that in mind, we are providing you with this information about our business continuity plan.
Contacting Us – If a significant business disruption occurs at our offices, the firm will assess which means of communication are still available, and use the means closest in speed and form (written or oral) to the means that have been used in the past to communicate with the other party.
Our Business Continuity Plan – Greentech Capital Advisors plans to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption, and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment and protecting the firm’s books and records. Greentech Capital Advisors creates back-up copies of the server on a daily basis and stores the back-ups at an off-site location to ensure that critical data will not be lost in the event of a significant business disruption. In short, our business continuity plan is designed to permit our firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.
We will make every reasonable effort to continue conducting business during any significant business disruption, employing the use of our business continuity plan. We plan to continue conducting business during any significant business disruption unless circumstances prohibit us from doing so. If, for any reason, at any time, we are forced by circumstances outside our direct control to discontinue business, we will immediately determine our planned recovery time and communicate those plans to all concerned parties.
We have devoted considerable thought and effort to designing our business continuity plan and we review and test our plan periodically to ensure readiness. However, no plan can assure recovery if a disaster or significant business interruptions were to occur.
