Simultaneous with the commencement of the Fund’s investment operations on October 13, 2017, the Goldman Navigator Fund, L.P., a limited partnership managed by Mr. Steven Goldman, the Fund’s portfolio manager (the “Predecessor Partnership”), converted into the Institutional Class shares of the Fund by contributing all of its assets to the Fund in exchange for Institutional Class shares of the Fund. From its inception in 2002 through 2012, the Predecessor Partnership was managed as a proprietary account of the portfolio manager, and was converted to a limited partnership in 2012. From its inception in 2002 through October 13, 2017, the Predecessor Partnership maintained investment policies, objectives, guidelines, and restrictions that were, in all material respects, equivalent to those of the Fund, and at the time of the conversion, the Predecessor Partnership was managed by the same portfolio manager as the Fund. Such portfolio manager managed the Predecessor Partnership since its inception in a manner that, in all material respects, complied with the investment guidelines and restrictions of the Fund. The Fund’s performance for periods before October 13, 2017 is that of the Predecessor Partnership and includes the expenses of the Predecessor Partnership. The performance includes gains or losses plus income and the reinvestment of all dividends and interest. All returns reflect the deduction of all actual fees and expenses, paid by the Predecessor Partnership, without provision for state or local taxes. If the Predecessor Partnership’s performance was adjusted to reflect the projected first year expenses of the Fund, the performance for all periods would have been lower than that stated.
The performance returns of the Predecessor Partnership are audited. The Predecessor Partnership was not registered under the 1940 Act, and was not subject to certain investment limitations, diversification requirements, and other restrictions imposed by the 1940 Act and the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the “Code”), which, if applicable, may have adversely affected its performance. On a going forward basis after October 13, 2017, the Fund’s performance will be calculated using the standard formula set forth in rules promulgated by the SEC, which differs in certain respects from the methods used to compute total returns for the Predecessor Partnership. Please refer to the Financial Statements section of the Fund’s SAI to review additional information regarding the Predecessor Partnership.
