Quantum Leap – Growth Fund


1. Structure The Fund is an open-ended investment company organised as a partnership limited by shares (société en commandite par actions) under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and qualifies as a société d’investissement à capital variable – fonds d’investissement spécialisé (SIF-SICAV). The Fund is authorised as an undertaking for collective investment ("UCI") under the law of 13 February 2007 relating to specialised investment funds. The Fund is an umbrella fund and as such may operate separate sub-funds (each, a “Sub-Fund”), each of which is represented by one or more classes of Shares (each, a “Class”). The Sub-Funds are distinguished by their specific investment policy or any other specific features, as further described in the Sub-Fund Particulars. The Company constitutes a single legal entity, but the assets of each Sub-Fund shall be invested for the exclusive benefit of the Shareholders of the corresponding Sub-Fund and the assets of a specific Sub-Fund are solely accountable for the liabilities, commitments and obligations of that Sub-Fund. The General Partner may at any time resolve to set up new Sub-Funds and/or create within each Sub-Fund one or more Classes of Shares and the Prospectus will be updated accordingly. The General Partner may also at any time resolve to close a Sub-Fund, or one or more Classes of Shares within a Sub-Fund, to further subscriptions. The General Partner may only be removed as manager by amendment of the Articles. Any resolution of a Shareholders' meeting of the Company creating rights or obligations of the Company vis-àvis third parties and any amendment of the Articles of the Company must be approved by the General Partner. As a société en commandite par actions the Company has two different types of participants:

• The associé-gérant-commandité who is, by operation of law, jointly and severally liable for any obligations of the Company. The General Manager, Quantum Leap Capital Management S.à r.l., is the associé-gérant-commandité and is therefore responsible for the management of the Company; • The shareholders whose liability is limited to the amount of their investment in the Company. The Company may have an unlimited number of shareholders. The capital of the Company shall be equal at all times to the net assets of the Company. The minimum capital of the Company, as prescribed by law, is the equivalent in USD of Euro 1,250,000. This minimum must be reached within a period of 12 months following the authorisation of the Company as a SIF-SICAV under the Law. The Company is incorporated for an unlimited period. The Company will be incorporated with an initial capital of USD 50,000 divided into 500 fully paid up Shares of no par value. Under Luxembourg law and its Articles, the Company is authorised to issue an unlimited number of Shares, all of which are without par value. The base currency of the Company is the USD and all the financial statements of the Fund will be presented in USD.

QL Partners’ record is backed up by hundreds of historic trades and deals with return in excess of 1,800% in 2008-2010 period (please see Appendix for detailed trades).

3. Investment objective The Company's main objective is to achieve long-term growth of its assets with a superior risk-adjusted performance while protecting the invested capital. Partners aim to achieve 5 year cumulative return of 400% or 80% p.a. including re-invested income and redemptions. Macro analysis and top down asset allocation approach allows us to decide on the main characteristics of the portfolio with a 100% focus on liquidity.

Quantum Leap – Growth Fund


Credit analysis allows us to short list names of high credit quality that are suitable for the fixed income part of the portfolio. Fund will trade all liquid asset classes including bonds, stocks, rates, FX, commodities and derivatives excluding structured credit products, as hedging instruments. Our trading strategy requires ‘long’ money and a minimum investment horizon is 2 years.

4. Investment policy In order to achieve this objective, the Sub-Fund will directly or indirectly invest into a broad range of asset classes, including equities, fixed income securities, money market instruments, investment funds (including hedge funds, funds of hedge funds, real estate funds and ETFs), Foreign Exchange and derivative instruments. The Fund may also take short positions on the above instruments and engage in securities lending transactions. QL can be long and/or short and can change market direction rapidly. The Fund may borrow up to 250% of its net assets for investment purposes or to bridge short term liabilities. The maximum leverage resulting from borrowings and the use of financial derivative instruments (except for hedging any currency risk) may not at any time and in aggregate exceed 500 % of the Fund's net assets. Up to 60% of the fund’s assets will be invested in corporate and sovereign credit positions with individual credit exposure not exceeding 5% and 10% of the fund respectively. The fund will not have overall country limit ceiling or duration restrictions. Our target minimum fixed income portfolio return is 10% p.a. The rest of the strategy is comprised of EM Equities, developed market equities, FX, rates and commodities trading. One of the main themes of the fund is deteriorating fiscal positions in developed world versus improving fiscal and monetary conditions in the developing world. To express this view, fund will be taking large short positions in the G7 bond markets through purchase of sovereign CDS contracts and/or shorting bond futures and government bonds. The proceeds from these short sales will be invested in bonds of countries with improving monetary and fiscal conditions. Our view is that the interest rate levels and credit spreads of developed and developing nations will converge at some stage in the next 10 years. 25% of the fund will be invested across various Emerging Market equities and these positions will be actively traded. Given our core view that inflation will be far higher in the next 10 years than what is embedded in the current inflation expectations, the fund’s investment bias will be long inflation protected securities. The fund will use commodity futures to hedge short term risks of price fluctuations. The remaining 15% of the fund will be invested in special situations and automated system trading. Average return from these special situations exceeds 1,000% p.a. and often 100% can be made in 2-3 months.


Quantum Leap – Growth Fund

Given large number of restructurings and bankruptcies going through at the moment, there are enormous numbers of profitable opportunities that QL can take advantage of immediately. To minimise risks, we intend to limit special situations to 10% of the fund activity and each individual position will be limited to USD 3-5mm. The fund can hold

1-10 special situation positions at any time.

QL partners have developed a system that has consistently produced 50-250% p.a. with large drawdowns and P&L volatility. Due to these specifications, we intend to invest a maximum of 5% of fund’s assets using this system. The system is largely based on momentum driven strategies and is a trend following system. It has 35% win ratio with an average profit exceeding average loss by 10:1. Stop loss is set at 2.5% and exits from profitable trades are set at 11 day lows. System has been back tested for 100 years and has been profitably used in the last 5 years.
