Additional Disclaimers and Disclosures

All investments involve a level of risk, and past performance is not a guarantee of future investment results. The value of investments and the income derived from them can go down as well as up. Future returns are not guaranteed and a loss of principal may occur. All investment performance can be affected by general economic conditions and the extent and timing of investor participation in both the equity and fixed income markets. Fees charged by LNWM will reduce the net performance of the investment portfolio.

The information presented herein does not constitute and should not be construed as legal advice or as an offer to buy or sell any investment product or service. Any opinions or investment planning solutions herein described may not be suitable for all investors nor apply to all situations. All opinions expressed are those of Laird Norton Wealth Management and are current only as of the date appearing on this material.

Any accounting, business or tax advice contained in this presentation (or communication, including attachments and enclosures) is not intended as a thorough, in-depth analysis of specific issues, nor a substitute for a formal opinion, nor is it sufficient to avoid tax-related penalties.

Some investments may not be publicly traded and they may only allow redemptions at certain times conditioned on various notice provisions and other factors as more fully described in the related offering and subscription documents provided at the time of the investment. Due to the nature of these types of investment funds, hedge funds, fund of funds, and similar partnership-like investment vehicles, they should be considered illiquid. In addition to restrictions on redemption, they often include holdback provisions that may delay a full redemption for several months or longer. There is no guarantee that the amount of the initial investment can be received upon redemption. Due to the nature of the tax reporting that may be available from these types of investments, clients should expect to extend the filing of their tax returns.

A benchmark is an unmanaged index, and its performance does not include any advisory fees, transaction costs or other charges that may be incurred in connection with your investments. Indices are statistical composites and are shown for informational purposes only. It is not possible to invest directly in an index. Indices are unmanaged and are not subject to management fees. Any benchmark whose return is shown for comparison purposes may include different holdings, a different number of holdings, and a different degree of investment in individual securities, industries or economic sectors than the investments and/or investment accounts to which it is compared. Comparisons of individual account or portfolio performance to an index or benchmark composed of indices are unreliable as indicators of future performance of an actual account or portfolio. Actual performance presented represents past performance net of investment management fees unless otherwise noted. Other fees, such as custodial fees or transaction related fees may not be reflected in the actual performance results shown.

Certain information herein has been obtained from public third party data sources, outside funds and investment managers. Although we believe this information to be reliable, no representation or warranty, expressed or implied, is made, and no liability is accepted by Laird Norton Wealth Management or any of its officers, agents or affiliates as to the accuracy, completeness or correctness of the information herein contained. In addition, due to the nature of an investment or the date of the creation of the attached presentation, some values shown or used in the calculation of performance may be based on estimates that are subject to change.
