Evergreen strategies are flexible investment vehicles with no fixed end date. These fund structures generally have lower investment minimums and provide more flexibility than traditional closed-end fund structures because there is no lock-up, allowing investors limited liquidity though periodic repurchase of units.

Important Information

Investors should carefully consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the Private Assets Fund before investing. You should consider the Private Assets Fund’s investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. For a prospectus that contains this and other information about the Fund, call 1 (888) 882-8212. Please read the prospectus carefully before investing. Investing in the Fund involves risk including loss of principal.

The Fund operates as a non-diversified, closed-end management investment company under the Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended.

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.  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.

An investment in the Fund is generally subject to market risk, including the loss of the entire principal amount invested. An investment in the Fund represents an indirect investment in the securities owned by the Fund. 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.

Some of the principal risks of the Fund include no operating history, limited liquidity, restricted and illiquid investments, non-diversification, and valuations subject to adjustments. The Fund may engage in the use of leverage, hedging, and other speculative investment practices that may accelerate losses.

The Fund has limited operating history and the shares have no history of public trading and it is not anticipated that a secondary market for Shares will develop. We do not expect a secondary market in the shares to develop.
