Information to distributors

Solely for the purposes of the product governance requirements contained within: (a) EU Directive 2014/65/EU on markets in financial instruments, as amended (“Directive 2014/65/EU”); (b) Articles 9 and 10 of Commission Delegated Directive (EU) 2017/593 supplementing Directive 2014/65/EU; (c) local implementing measures; and/or (d) (where applicable to UK investors or UK firms) the relevant provisions of the UK MiFID Laws (together the "MiFID II Product Governance Requirements"), and disclaiming all and any liability, whether arising in tort, contract or otherwise, which any "manufacturer" (for the purposes of the MiFID II Product Governance Requirements) may otherwise have with respect thereto, the Shares have been subject to a product approval process, which has determined that the Shares are: (i) compatible with an end target market of retail investors and investors who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties, each as defined in Directive 2014/65/EU or the UK MiFID Laws (as applicable) and (ii) eligible for distribution through all distribution channels as are permitted by Directive 2014/65/EU or the UK MiFID Laws, as applicable (the “Target Market Assessment”).

Notwithstanding the Target Market Assessment, distributors should note that: the price of the Shares may decline and investors could lose all or part of their investment; the Shares offer no guaranteed income and no capital protection; and an investment in the Shares is compatible only with investors who do not need a guaranteed income or capital protection, who (either alone or in conjunction with an appropriate financial or other adviser) are capable of evaluating the merits and risk of such an investment and who have sufficient resources to be able to bear any losses that may result therefrom. The Target Market Assessment is without prejudice to the requirements of any contractual, legal or regulatory selling restrictions in relation to the Initial Issue. Furthermore, it is noted that, notwithstanding any Target Market Assessment, JPMC will, pursuant to the Initial Placing, only procure placees who meet the criteria of professional clients and eligible counterparties.

For the avoidance of doubt, the Target Market Assessment does not constitute: (a) an assessment of suitability or appropriateness for the purposes of Directive 2014/65/EU or the UK MiFID Laws (as applicable); or (b) a recommendation to any investors or group of investors to invest in, or purchase, or take any other action whatsoever with respect to the Shares.

Each distributor is responsible for undertaking its own Target Market Assessment in respect of the Shares and determining appropriate distribution channels.

In accordance with the UK version of the Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 November 2014 on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs) and related legislation (the “UK PRIIPs Laws”), key information documents in respect of an investment in the Sterling Shares and the US Dollar Shares have been prepared by the Manager and are available to investors at www.bhmacro.com.

If you are distributing the Shares, it is your responsibility to ensure that the key information document relating to the relevant class of Shares is provided to any clients that are "retail clients". The Company is the only manufacturer of the Shares for the purposes of the UK PRIIPs Laws or the PRIIPs Regulation and JPMC is not a manufacturer for these purposes. JPMC does not make any representation, express or implied, or accept any responsibility whatsoever for the contents of any key information documents prepared by the Manager nor accept any responsibility to update the contents of any key information documents in accordance with the UK PRIIPs Laws or the PRIIPs Regulation, to undertake any review processes in relation thereto or to provide such key information documents to future distributors of Shares. JPMC and its affiliates accordingly disclaim all and any liability whether arising in tort or contract or otherwise which it or they might have in respect of any key information documents prepared by the Manager.
