Private equity investments are speculative, highly illiquid, involve a high degree of risk, have high fees and expenses that could reduce returns, and subject to the possibility of partial or total loss of fund capital; they are, therefore, intended for experienced and sophisticated long-term investors who can accept such risks. There can be no assurance that any objectives or targets stated in this material can be achieved; any targets provided are subject to change and do not provide any assurance as to future results. The ability of underlying funds to achieve their objectives or targets depends upon a variety of factors, not the least of which are political, public market and economic conditions. Any historical performance of individual partnerships shown is for informational purposes only and does not guarantee their future performance, which can vary considerably. The trading market for the securities of any portfolio investment of the underlying funds may not be sufficiently liquid to enable such funds to sell such securities when it believes it is most advantageous to do so, or without adversely affecting the stock price. In addition, such portfolio companies may be highly leveraged, which leverage could have significant adverse consequences to these companies and the funds offered by AIMS Private Equity. Furthermore, restrictions on transferring interests in AIMS Private Equity funds may exist so prospective investors should be prepared to retain their investments in any AIMS Private Equity fund until the fund liquidates. For a complete discussion of risks that are unique to a particular AIMS Private Equity fund, please refer to the respective fund's offering documents, which should be carefully reviewed prior to investing.
