In the United Kingdom, Polar Star has notified the Financial Conduct Authority ("the FCA") of its intention to market via the FCA National Private Placement Regime under the following Product Reference Numbers (PRNs):
In Switzerland, the Fund is considered a foreign investment scheme pursuant to Art. 119 of the Swiss Federal Collective Investment Schemes Act (CISA). No application has been submitted to the Federal Financial Market Supervisory Authority (FINMA) to obtain approval within the meaning of Art. 120 CISA to offer or distribute the investment in or from Switzerland to "Non-Qualified Investors", and no other steps have been taken in this direction. Consequently, investors do not benefit from the specific investor protection and/or FINMA supervision pursuant to the CISA and its implementing ordinances.
Any offer or sale must therefore be in strict compliance with Swiss law, and in particular with the provisions of the Collective Investment Schemes Act and its implementing ordinances, and FINMA circular 2013/9 on distribution of collective investment schemes. No person or entity is authorised to offer or sell the Shares or distribute any Fund Documentation, including the Prospectus, the Articles of Incorporation and annual reports issued by the Fund from time to time or promotional material pertaining to the Fund in or from Switzerland other than to "Qualified Investors", as defined in Article 10 of the CISA and Articles 6 and 6a of the CISO and any circulars issued by FINMA.
The Funds have appointed as Swiss Representative: FundRock Switzerland SA (formerly known as ARM Swiss Representatives SA), Route de Cité-Ouest 2, 1196 Gland – Switzerland.
The Fund's paying agent is Neue Helvetische Bank AG. Any Fund Documentation, including the offering memorandum, the articles of incorporation and annual reports issued by the Fund may be obtained free of charge from the Swiss Representative in Switzerland. In respect of the Shares offered in or from Switzerland, the place of performance is at the registered office of the Swiss Representative and the place of jurisdiction is at the registered office of the Swiss Representative or at the registered office or place of residence of the investor.
