Bishop provides individualized responses to persons in a particular state only after complying with the state’s regulatory requirements, or pursuant to an applicable state exemption or exclusion. The presence of this website on the Internet shall in no direct or indirect way suggest that the firm offers investment advisory services to residents of any state other than the states in which the firm maintains a notice filing. In addition, this website should not be construed as a solicitation of investment advisory clients in any state other than the states in which we maintain a notice filing.

Alternative Investment Disclaimer and Regulatory Compliance Information
The information contained on this website is for informational purposes only and is not an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy an interest in any of the Funds managed or advised or offered by Bishop & Associates, Inc. (Bishop). This document contains only summary information about the Funds (“Funds” herein defined as any and all alternative investments mentioned and or offered/considered) and is qualified in its entirety by, and should be read in conjunction with, the more detailed information contained in the Offering Memorandum for each Fund.
The interests in the Funds have not been registered with the SEC under the Securities Act, or under the securities laws of any state in the United Sates or under the securities laws of any other jurisdiction, and the Funds have not been registered as an investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended, and are being offered and sold in reliance on exemptions from the registration requirements of such laws.
The information contained in this Document has been prepared to assist interested parties in making their own evaluation of the opportunity and does not purport to be complete or to contain all of the information that a prospective investor might consider important in connection with an investment in the Fund. In all cases, interested parties should conduct their own investigation and analysis of the Fund, the data set forth on this website and such other data as they may consider relevant to an investment decision. Not all hedge funds/Candidates/investments may be available at all times due to capacity or for other reasons. The information contained in this Document does not constitute legal, tax, accounting, regulatory or investment advice, and persons considering an investment in the Fund should consult their own legal and financial advisors with respect to the application of United States securities, tax or other laws and accounting and regulatory provisions to their particular, as well as any consequences arising under the laws of any other jurisdiction.
The liquidity schedule constitutes the “best available” liquidity as of the date hereof. The liquidity terms described are for a particular exposure. From time to time, the Fund and/or the Outside Portfolio Manager may offer different liquidity terms. “Best available” liquidity assumes availability when soft lock terms are applicable.
The pro forma results are based on simulated or hypothetical performance results that have certain inherent limitations. Unlike the results shown in an actual performance record, these results do not represent actual trading. Also, because the trades have not actually been executed, these results may have under- or over-compensated for the impact, if any, of certain market factors, such as lack of liquidity. Simulated or hypothetical trading programs in general are also subject to the fact that they are designed with the benefit of hindsight. No representation is being made that any account will or is likely to achieve profits or losses similar to these being shown.
PRO FORMA COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD IS HYPOTHETICAL AND THESE TRADING ADVISORS HAVE NOT TRADED TOGETHER IN THE MANNER SHOWN IN THE COMPOSITE. HYPOTHETICAL PERFORMANCE RESULTS HAVE MANY INHERENT LIMITATIONS, SOME OF WHICH ARE DESCRIBED BELOW. NO REPRESENTATION IS BEING MADE THAT ANY MULTI-ADIVSOR MANAGED ACCOUNT OR POOL WILL OR IS LIKELY TO ACHIEVE A COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD SIMILAR TO THAT SHOWN. IN FACT, THERE ARE FREQUENTLY SHARP DIFFERENCES BETWEEN A HYPOTHETICAL COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD AND THE ACTUAL RECORD SUBSEQUENTLY ACHIEVED.
ONE OF THE LIMITATIONS OF A HYPOTHETICAL COMPOSITE PERFROMANCE RECORD IS THAT DECISIONS RELATING TO THE SELECTION OF TRADING ADVISORS AND THE ALLOCATION OF ASSETS AMONG THOSE TRADING ADVISORS WERE MADE WITH THE BENEFIT OF HINDSIGHT BASED UPON THE HISTORICAL RATES OF RETURN OF THE SELECTED TRADING ADVISORS. THEREFORE, COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORDS INVARIABLY SHOW POSITIVE RATES OF RETURN. ANOTHER INHERENT LIMITATION ON THESE RESULTS IS THAT THE ALLOCATION DECISIONS REFLECTED IN THE PERFORMANCE RECORD WERE NOT MADE UNDER ACTUAL MARKET CONDITIONS AND, THEREFORE, CANNOT COMPLETELY ACCOUNT FOR THE IMPACT OF FINANCIAL RISK IN ACTUAL TRADING. FURTHERMORE, THE COMPOSITE PERFORMANCE RECORD MAY BE DISTORTED BECAUSE THE ALLOCATION OF ASSETS CHANGES FROM TIME TO TIME AND THESE ADJUSTMENTS ARE NOT REFLECTED IN THE COMPOSITE.
The interests in the Funds are speculative, can be illiquid, involve substantial risk, and are a suitable investment only for a limited portion of an investor’s portfolio. Investors could lose all or substantially all of their investment in the Funds. Neither the delivery of this information nor any offers of sales hereunder shall create an implication that there has been no change since the date of this disclaimer or any Offering Memorandum in the matters disclosed herein. Before you decide to invest, read the entire Offering Memorandum for the specific fund of interest carefully, and in particular, consider the “Risk Factor” section. If you, or your advisors, have questions concerning the operations, you should contact the Fund Manager at the address or phone number included in the Offering Memorandum.
None of the directors, officers, employees or advisers of Bishop or its affiliates or any other person makes any promise, guarantee, representation or warranty (expressed or implied) to any person as to the fairness, accuracy or completeness of this website or the information contained herein, or of any other information, materials or opinions, whether written or oral, that have been, or may be, prepared or furnished by any of those companies, including, without limitation, economic or financial projections, if any, or risk evaluations.
