Belmont is primarily involved in the distribution of hedge funds, managed futures funds and other alternative investments. Investors should be aware that these types of investments often involve substantially higher levels of risk than more traditional investments. These risks include, but are not limited to, the high degree of leverage that may be used, the lack of transparency provided to the investor as to the nature of the underlying investment, the illiquidity of the instruments that the investment may ultimately hold, the lack of a secondary market for these investments and the high degree of concentration of investment manager risk. Alternative investments are generally not available to the investing public and should only be considered after careful review of the offering materials associated with any particular fund. Prospective investors should also take advice from their tax, legal and financial advisors before proceeding. It should be note the information contained in this website is not directed at, nor is it intended for distribution to, or use by, persons in any jurisdiction in which the investment products are not authorized for distribution or in which the dissemination of information regarding the investment products is not permitted.

A more detailed explanation of the restrictions associated with investing in each investment product is located in the prospectus for each investment product. The capital value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount invested. Prospective investors should be aware of the underlying risks associated with investing in shares listed on certain stock markets which can be more volatile and less marketable than in more developed stock markets. The value of shares may rise or fall due to changes in the rate of exchange in the currency in which the funds are denominated if it is different from the investors’ own currency.
