A Core Private Markets Portfolio Through a Single Allocation
The Hamilton Lane Private Assets Fund (“PAF”) is a ‘40 Act registered investment vehicle that provides qualified clients with access to a diversified private markets portfolio, leveraging Hamilton Lane’s $823.9B+ private market platform.*
The Fund seeks to generate capital appreciation over the medium and long term through direct investments and secondaries globally, while solving for some of the challenges of a traditional private markets fund by offering quarterly limited liquidity to investors.
Shares are speculative and illiquid securities involving substantial risk of loss. Shares are not listed on any securities exchange and it is not anticipated that a secondary market for Shares will develop. Shares are subject to substantial restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted. Although the Fund may offer to repurchase a limited amount of Shares from time to time, Shares will not be redeemable at a Shareholder’s option nor will they be exchangeable for Shares or shares of any other fund. As a result, an investor may not be able to sell or otherwise liquidate Shares. Shares are appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment and for whom an investment in the Fund does not constitute a complete investment program. The Fund has no operating history. The Board may elect to repurchase less than the full amount that a Shareholder requests to be repurchased and may under certain circumstances elect to postpone, suspend or terminate an offer to repurchase Shares.

The Fund is not a liquid investment. No Shareholder will have the right to require the Fund to redeem its Shares. The Fund from time to time intends to offer to repurchase Shares pursuant to written tenders by the Shareholders. The Adviser anticipates recommending to the Board that, under normal market circumstances, the Fund conduct repurchase offers of no more than 5% of the Fund’s net assets generally quarterly beginning on June 30, 2021 (or such earlier or later date as the Board may determine) and thereafter quarterly. Any repurchases of Shares will be made at such times and on such terms as may be determined by the Board from time to time in its sole discretion.
The Fund may also elect to repurchase less than the full amount that a Shareholder requests to be repurchased. In determining whether the Fund should offer to repurchase Shares from Shareholders of the Fund pursuant to repurchase requests, the Board may consider, among other things, the recommendation of the Adviser as well as a variety of other operational, business and economic factors.
