5. No Advice, Offers or Solicitations. THIS SITE AND THE INFORMATION INCLUDED HEREIN ARE FOR GENERAL INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY. UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD ANY MATERIAL AT THE SITE BE USED OR CONSIDERED AS AN OFFER TO SELL OR A SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO BUY ANY SECURITY, FUTURE OR OTHER FINANCIAL PRODUCT OR INSTRUMENT, INCLUDING ANY INTEREST IN ANY INVESTMENT FUND SPONSORED OR MANAGED BY TEZA OR ANY INVESTMENT ADVISORY SERVICES OFFERED BY TEZA. ANY SUCH OFFER OR SOLICITATION CAN AND WILL BE MADE ONLY BY MEANS OF THE APPLICABLE CONFIDENTIAL OFFERING MEMORANDUM OF EACH SUCH INVESTMENT FUND OR OTHER APPLICABLE DOCUMENT, ONLY IN JURISDICTIONS IN WHICH SUCH AN OFFER WOULD BE LAWFUL AND ONLY TO INVESTORS WHO MEET THE INVESTOR SUITABILITY AND SOPHISTICATION REQUIREMENTS OF EACH SUCH INVESTMENT FUND AS DETERMINED FROM TIME TO TIME BY TEZA IN ITS SOLE AND ABSOLUTE DISCRETION.

Such requirements may include, among other things, qualifying as an “accredited investor” within the meaning of the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended; a “qualified client” within the meaning of the U.S. Investment Advisers Act of 1940, as amended; a “qualified eligible person” within the meaning of the U.S. Commodity Exchange Act, as amended; and/or a “qualified purchaser” within the meaning of the rules promulgated under the U.S. Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended. Access to information about the investment funds managed by, or advisory services offered by, Teza is similarly limited to investors who meet the applicable investor suitability, experience and sophistication requirements. You acknowledge that participation in investment funds is speculative in nature, involves a high degree of risk and is intended only for experienced and sophisticated investors.

This Site is also not intended to provide any investment, financial, legal, regulatory, accounting, tax or similar advice, and nothing on this Site should be construed as a recommendation, by Teza or any third party, to acquire or dispose of any investment or security, or to engage in any investment strategy or transaction. You should consult your own investment, legal, tax and/or similar professionals regarding your specific situation and any specific decisions.

6. Performance. PAST PERFORMANCE IS NOT NECESSARILY INDICATIVE OF FUTURE PERFORMANCE.  Nothing on the Site should be interpreted to state or imply otherwise. There can be no assurance that any strategy, investment thesis or product described herein will meet its objectives generally or avoid losses.  Nothing described herein is intended to imply that an investment with Teza is safe, conservative, risk free or risk averse. 

An investment with Teza is speculative and involves a high degree of risk. Teza will employ certain trading techniques, such as short selling, the use of leverage and futures trading, which may increase the risk of investment loss. As a result, performance may be volatile, and an investor could lose all or a substantial amount of its investment. Further, the products managed by Teza have substantial limitations on an investor’s ability to redeem or transfer shares or interests, and there is no secondary market for any such shares or interests and none is expected to develop. The fees and expenses of any investment with Teza may offset any trading profits. There can be no assurance that any product advised by Teza will implement any strategies or rely on any systems referred to herein, or that if implemented any such strategies and systems will achieve their objectives.  Teza’s strategies have been, and will continue to be, adjusted, modified, developed, added and/or removed, and such strategies may differ materially from their descriptions herein. 

Any prospective investor should carefully consider the summary of risk factors included in Teza’s Form ADV Brochure (and the relevant offering document) and consult with its own financial, legal and tax advisors before determining to invest with Teza.

7. No Reliance; Materials to be Consulted in their Entirety.  While Teza uses reasonable efforts to update the information contained in the Site, Teza makes no representations or warranties as to the accuracy, reliability or completeness of any information, or other content, at or on the Site. Any content of the Site is subject to change without notice. As noted above, permission by Teza to access this Site should not be construed as, or relied upon as, investment, financial, legal, regulatory, accounting, tax or similar advice. You acknowledge that any reliance on such material or systems will be at your own risk. Teza makes no representations regarding the amount of time that any content will be preserved.

All materials at the Site are meant to be reviewed in their entirety, including any footnotes, legal disclaimers, restrictions, disclosures, hedge clauses and any copyright or proprietary notices, including those contained in these Terms of Use.
