SUMMARY OF KEY RISK FACTORS

General risk: An investment in the Sub-Fund involves a substantial degree of risk and should be considered only by eligible investors whose financial resources are sufficient to enable them to assume such risk and the possible loss of some or all of their investment, and who have no immediate need for liquidity in their investment in the Sub-Fund. Prospective Sub-Fund investors should carefully evaluate the following risk factors as well as the risk factors disclosed in section 7 of the Sub-Fund Supplement and section 19 of the Fund Prospectus and are urged to consult their professional advisers before deciding whether to invest in the Sub-Fund.

Hg funds and allocation: An investment does not guarantee an investor access to any particular Hg underlying fund. Any investment allocation targets of the Sub-Fund set out herein, or within the Sub-Fund Supplement represent the overall approach to allocation only, the actual allocation of investment may materially differ at any time. As a result, the Sub-Fund may miss out on certain Hg underlying funds which may adversely affect returns of the Sub-Fund.

Concentration risk: The Sub-Fund's returns may be substantially affected by the unfavorable performance of a single portfolio company or single Hg underlying fund. In addition, the Hg underlying funds may invest exclusively or primarily in a particular asset type or category, which may reduce the overall diversification of the Sub-Fund's portfolio and increase risk.

Lack of liquidity: Hg underlying funds and their respective investments may from time to time become less liquid, leading to valuation losses on the investments making it difficult to acquire or dispose of them at prices the Investment Manager consider to be fair value. Liquidation of portions of the Sub-Fund’s portfolio under these circumstances could produce realised losses. The size of the Sub-Fund’s positions may magnify the effect of a decrease in market liquidity for such instruments. Settlement of transactions may be subject to delay and uncertainty. The Sub-Fund is generally expected to invest a substantial portion of its assets in illiquid fund interests in the underlying Hg funds. Currently, there is generally no public trading market for such interest and a disposal by the Sub-Fund of such interests on demand or at a time the Investment Manager does not consider to be suitable may adversely impact the Sub-Fund’s ability to realise such interests for their full value.

Leverage: The use of leverage magnifies both the favourable and unfavourable effects of price movements in the Sub-Fund's investments. The leveraged capital structures of such Hg underlying funds and their portfolio companies will increase their (and thus the Sub-Fund's) exposure to adverse economic factors such as rising interest rates, downturns in the economy or deterioration in the condition of the affected companies or their industries.

Fees: Investors shall be aware of the fact that the fees (subscription, redemption, management and others, if any) charged to the Sub-Fund by some investments may also provide for a performance based profit distribution or ‘carried interest’ to be distributed to affiliates of the Investment Manager and their officers, employees and partners and such fees and carried interest will have to be borne on a pro rata basis by a Sub-Fund in its capacity as an investor in such Alternative Investments, and that in consequence the net assets of a Sub-Fund will be affected. This may lead in respect of a Sub-Fund to a duplication of the fees and charges, as the Sub-Funds incur the fees and charges levied at each investment level.

Conflicts: Investors should be aware that there will be situations where the Investment Manager and its affiliates may encounter conflicts of interest in connection with the Sub-Fund’s investment activities and these should be carefully considered before making an investment in the Sub-Fund. The Investment Manager has established and implemented a conflict of interest policy which deals with, among other things, the identification of circumstances which constitute or may give rise to a conflict of interest entailing a material risk of damage to the interests of the Sub-Fund or the investors.

SUMMARY OF INVESTOR RIGHTS

Investors’ rights include economical rights such as redemption rights and profit rights, but also rights to a fair information and equal treatment, as well as complaints’ rights and the right to participate in general meetings of shareholders if the investor is registered under her or his own name in the register of shareholders of Hg Fusion. In addition, Directive (EU) 2020/1828 of 25 November 2020 on representative actions for the protection of the collective interests of consumers provides for a collective redress mechanism which applies, in case of infringements by traders of the provisions of, amongst others, Directive 2011/61/EU on Alternative Investment Fund Managers, Regulation (EU) No 1286/2014 on key information documents for packaged retail and insurance-based investment products (PRIIPs), including such provisions as transposed into national law that harm or may harm the collective interests of consumers. Directive (EU) 2020/1828) shall be transposed by Member States, including Luxembourg, by 25 December 2022 at the latest and the provisions shall be applicable from 25 June 2023. Luxembourg has not yet implemented Directive (EU) 2020/1828 but a bill of law is currently pending.

DISCLAIMER

1. The information and documents on this website (the “Document”) provide information in connection with S64 AltoFlex VI Private Markets, SICAV, and specifically its sub-fund, the Hg Fusion Private Capital Fund (the “Fund”) to investors. The Fund will be managed by Carne Global Fund Managers (Luxembourg) S.A. and/or such other appropriately authorised fund manager which may be appointed from time-to-time (the “AIFM”) and the AIFM will delegate portfolio management of the Fund to Hg Pooled Management Limited (the “Manager”).

2. The Manager is authorised and regulated in the United Kingdom (the “UK”) by the Financial Conduct Authority (the “FCA”). This Document is qualified in its entirety by information provided in the prospectus and supporting sub-fund supplement (together, the “Prospectus”) for the Fund and must be read in conjunction with the Prospectus and, in particular, the risk factors and the other disclosures. The receipt of this Document is not to be taken as constituting an offer or invitation to subscribe for the Fund, or for any future funds to be raised by the Manager or the AIFM. This Document is for information purposes only and is not intended to provide the sole basis for making any decision regarding the purchase of interests in the Fund (the “Interests”). This Document does not purport to contain all the information that may be required and should not be considered as advice or a recommendation in relation to the purchase of Interests.

3. This Document and the information contained in this Document are subject to updating, verification and amendment (which may be material) without notice. It has been prepared on the assumption that any structuring required to conduct the activities of the Fund has been implemented and that the required regulatory approvals have been obtained. The information relating to the track record of the Manager is correct as of 31st December 2022. Investors should not subscribe for any Interests except on the basis of the information contained in the Prospectus.

4. The Manager acts for the AIFM and not for anyone else. It will not act for, advise or be responsible for providing the protections afforded to its clients to anyone else. No one else should expect that they will be treated as clients of the Manager.

5. Any offering of Interests has not been and will not be registered under the United States Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the “Securities Act”), or any US state securities laws or the laws of any other jurisdiction. The Interests will be offered and sold in the United States or for the benefit of US persons (as defined in Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act) under an exemption provided by Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act and/or Regulation D promulgated thereunder and other exemptions of similar import in the laws of the US states and other jurisdictions where the offering will be made. The offer and sale of Interests may also be made in reliance on an exemption from registration under Regulation S promulgated under the Securities Act. The nature of the offering’s risk requires that investors meet minimum asset and/or income conditions. The Fund will not be registered as an investment company under the United States Investment Company Act of 1940, as amended (the “Investment Company Act”), pursuant to an exemption contained in either section 3(c)(1) or 3(c)(7) of the Investment Company Act. Consequently, investors will not be afforded the protections of the Investment Company Act. In order to satisfy such exemption under the Investment Company Act, the Manager may require that investors make the applicable representations with respect to the Investment Company Act. Neither the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission nor any other regulatory authority or self-regulatory authority has approved, passed on or endorsed the merits of any investment opportunity that may be described herein. No regulatory authority, self-regulatory authority or other third party has confirmed the accuracy or determined the adequacy of this Document. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offense.

6. The Manager is exempt from registration with the commodity futures trading commission (the “CFTC”) as a commodity pool operator (“CPO”). Therefore, unlike a registered CPO, the Manager is not required to deliver a disclosure document (as defined under CFTC regulations) to participants in the Fund. The Manager qualifies for exemption from registration with the CFTC because, among other things, either:

(a) the aggregate initial margin and premiums required to establish commodity interest positions (if any) will not exceed 5% of the liquidation value of each of the Fund’s portfolio; or

(b) the aggregate net notional value of the Fund’s commodity interest positions (if any) will not exceed 100% of the liquidation value of the Fund’s portfolio.

7. This Document is strictly private and confidential and is intended solely for the information of the addressee. This Document is not an invitation for subscription and should not be reproduced or circulated or used for any purpose other than assisting with the assessment of an opportunity to invest in the Fund by the person to whom this Document is made available. By accepting delivery of this Document, each recipient agrees not to so reproduce, distribute or use information contained within this Document, or otherwise disclose any of its contents without the prior consent of the Manager.

8. Investors should note their obligations under applicable insider dealing and market abuse regimes. The Manager, HgCapital LLP, or any of their respective subsidiaries, affiliates, representatives, members, partners, directors, officers, employees, advisers or agents (collectively “the Relevant Parties”) give no guidance as to whether any information contained in this Document or in connection with it should be considered to be inside information and/or material non-public information. It is for recipients to determine whether any such information is inside information and/or material non-public information and to ensure that they comply with applicable laws, regulation, guidance and policies in that regard.

9. None of the information in this Document has been independently verified by the Manager.

10. In no circumstances will the Relevant Parties be held responsible for any of the information in this Document.

Accordingly, this Document should not form the basis of any investment decision. By accepting this Document, the recipient acknowledges that it will be solely responsible for making its own investigations, including the costs and expenses incurred, and forming its own view as to the prospects for the Fund and its investment activities and the sufficiency, accuracy and completeness of the statements contained herein. To the maximum extent permitted by law, none of the Relevant Parties shall be liable for any direct, indirect or consequential loss, damage, cost or expense arising out of or in connection with any person’s use of or reliance on this Document.

The purchase of Interests may expose the investor to a significant risk of losing all of the funds invested and/or additional liability - if a prospective investor is in any doubt about an investment in the Fund, they should consult an authorised person specialising in advising on unregulated collective investment schemes.

14. This Document is not a prospectus approved under section 87A et seq. FSMA.

15. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Prospective investors are cautioned not to rely on the prior returns set forth herein in making a decision whether or not to purchase Interests. The return information contained herein has not been audited or verified by any independent party and should not be considered representative of the returns that may be received by an investor in the Fund. The Fund is not required by law to follow any standard methodology when calculating and presenting performance data, except in relation to certain disclosures that may be required under the EU Packaged Retail and Insurance-Based Investment Products Regulation (1286/2014) when dealing with EEA investors that are not Professional Investors (as defined below). The performance of the Fund may not be directly comparable to the performance of other private or registered investment funds.

16. Interests may only be made available in the EEA or the UK in accordance with the EU Alternative Investment Fund Managers Directive (Directive 2011/61/EU) as implemented into the local law / regulation of the relevant EEA Member State and the UK or pursuant to local legislation in those jurisdictions (the “AIFMD”). Recipients of the Document in the EEA or the UK are required to confirm that they are considered to be a professional investor for the purposes of AIFMD as implemented in an EEA Member State or the UK (“Professional Investors”) and that the Manager is permitted to market the Fund to Professional Investors in the relevant Member State or the UK in accordance with the AIFMD, or the Fund may otherwise be lawfully made available to relevant prospective investors in the relevant EEA Member State or the UK - for example, where the prospective investor has contacted the Manager at their own initiative.

17. It is the responsibility of recipients of the Document to inform themselves about and observe all applicable legal requirements in their jurisdictions in relation to the issuance to them of this Document. In particular, the distribution of this Document in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law and recipients must read the securities legends of any applicable jurisdiction set out in the Prospectus in connection with receipt of this Document. This Document does not constitute, and may not be used for the purposes of, an offer of Interests or an invitation to apply to participate in an investment fund by any person in any jurisdiction in which such offer or invitation is not authorised or in which the person endeavouring to make such offer or invitation is not qualified to do so or to any person to whom it is unlawful to make such an offer or invitation. It is the responsibility of prospective investors to satisfy themselves as to full compliance with the relevant laws and regulations of any territory in connection with any application to participate in the Fund.

18. Recipients of this Document are urged to request any additional information they may consider necessary or desirable in making an informed investment decision. Prior to committing to the Fund, the Manager will give potential investors the opportunity to ask questions of and receive answers and additional information from it and its representatives concerning the offering and other relevant matters.

19. Any performance information is provided on the understanding that an investor will understand and accept its inherent limitations and will not rely on it in making any investment decision with respect to any securities that may be issued. The Interests will be offered subject to prior sale, and subject to the right of the Board of Managers of S64 AltoFlex VI Private Markets to accept or reject any subscription in whole or in part. There can be no assurance that unrealised investments will be realised at the valuations shown as actual realised returns will depend on, among other factors, future operating results, the value of the assets and market conditions at the time of disposition, any related transaction costs, and the timing and manner of sale, all of which may differ from the assumptions on which the valuations contained herein are based.

20. This Document may contain statements that are not purely historical in nature but are “forward-looking statements”. These include, among other things, projections, hypothetical analyses of income, yield or return, future performance targets, sample or pro-forma portfolio structures or portfolio composition and can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as “may,” “will,” “should,” “expect,” “anticipate,” “project,” “estimate,” “intend,” “continue,” “target,” “believe,” the negative or inverse forms thereof, other variations thereon or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements are based upon certain assumptions, not all of which are described herein.

21. No representation or warranty is made by any Relevant Parties as to the reasonableness of such assumptions or as to any other financial information contained in the performance information (including the assumptions on which they are based). Actual events may differ materially from those assumed. All forward-looking statements included are based on information available on the date hereof and the Manager does not assume any duty to update any forward-looking statement. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that estimated returns or projections can be realised, that forward-looking statements will prove to be accurate or that actual returns or results will not be materially lower than those presented. Therefore, undue reliance should not be placed on such forward-looking statements as the actual performance of any portfolio company may differ, and may differ substantially, from that set forth in the performance information and may result in losses to investors.

22. The Interests may be subject to restrictions on transferability and resale and may not be transferred or resold except as permitted under the Securities Act and the applicable state securities laws pursuant to registration or exemption therefrom. In addition, such Interests may not be sold, transferred, assigned or hypothecated, in whole or in part, except as provided in the Prospectus. Accordingly, investors should be aware that they could be required to bear the financial risks of an investment in the Fund for an indefinite period of time. The Interests will not be tradeable on the capital markets, there will be no public market for the Interests, and there is no obligation on the part of any person to register the Interests under the Securities Act or any state securities laws. Investment in the Fund involves certain significant investment risks, including loss of an investor’s entire value of investment or other amount of capital.

23. The distribution of Interests in Switzerland will be exclusively made to, and directed at, qualified investors (“Qualified Investors”), as defined in the Swiss Collective Investment Schemes Act (“CISA”) and its implementing ordinance. Accordingly, the Fund has not been and will not be registered with the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority (“FINMA”).

24.

The offering of Interests in Fund into Switzerland is exempt from the prospectus requirement under the FinSA. No prospectus pursuant to the FinSA has been or will be prepared for or in connection with the offering of the Interests.

25.
