Performance data shown represents past performance and is no guarantee of future results. Investment return and principal value will fluctuate so that an investor’s shares, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost. Current performance may be lower or higher than that quoted. Class A Shares are subject to a sales load of up to 1.00% of the public offering price. The performance data does not reflect the deduction of the sales load, and that, if reflected, the load would reduce the performance quoted.

Notes and Disclosures
1 Utilizing these strategies involves investment risks, including the possible loss of principal.
2 No assurance can be given that any investment will achieve its objectives or avoid losses. Utilizing these strategies involves investment risks, including the possible loss of principal. Returns are net of management fees and expenses, and also reflect the expenses borne by the “Fund” as an investor in underlying investment funds. The Fund offers Class A Shares and Class I Shares, which are subject to different fees and expenses and will have different investment performance as a result. Class A Shares and Class I Shares are available only through specific distribution channels, and a specific share class may not be available to all investors. The Fund pays a 55 bps investment advisory fee to GCMLP and a 10 bps administrative services and sub-accounting fee to Merrill Lynch based on the assets of both Class A Shares and Class I Shares, subject to some exclusions. In connection with Class A Shares, the Fund pays Merrill Lynch a 75 bps distribution and service fee. Fees and expenses are more fully described in the Fund’s prospectus. The ordinary operating expenses of the Fund (not including the advisory fee, investment-related costs and expenses (which includes investment fund fees and expenses), taxes, interest and related costs of borrowing, brokerage commissions, payments to certain financial intermediaries for providing servicing, sub-accounting, recordkeeping and/or other administrative services to the Fund and any extraordinary expenses of the Fund) are subject to an expense limitation and reimbursement agreement between GCMLP and the Fund, capping the ordinary operating expenses of each share class of the fund at 0.80% per annum of the Fund’s average monthly net assets attributable to such class. The agreement will remain in effect until July 31, 2021, and will terminate unless renewed by GCMLP. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized. Returns have been prepared using both unaudited and audited financial data, if available at the time, and valuations provided by the underlying Investment Funds. Valuations based upon unaudited or estimated reports from the underlying investment funds may be subject to later adjustments that may be both material and adverse.

Market Risks – the risks that economic and market conditions and factors may materially adversely affect the value of the Fund’s investments.
Illiquidity Risks – the risks arising from the fact that Shares are not traded on any securities exchange or other market and are subject to substantial restrictions on transfer; although the Fund may offer to repurchase Shares from time to time, a shareholder may not be able to liquidate its Shares of the Fund for an extended period of time.
