9 Contact Details Gutzwiller Fonds Management AG Kaufhausgasse Basel Switzerland GUTZWILLER TWO is an umbrella fund containing several subfunds. Each subfund may, directly or indirectly, pursue a non-traditional investment strategy, where the risks are not comparable to the risks of equities funds. GUTZWILLER TWO, as a fund of funds, invests in various, usually foreign investment funds of various legal structure (particularly collective investment vehicles, investment corporations, trusts and limited partnerships, hereinafter called target funds) which pursue alternative investment strategies or make alternative investments and use alternative investment techniques (in general known as hedge funds or as non-traditional funds). The risks of these target funds are not comparable to the risks of securities funds. Most of the target funds are subject to the law of countries, where neither the legal framework nor the regulatory supervision are comparable to Swiss standards. For this reason, GUTZWILLER TWO belongs to the category "Other funds with alternative investments". The attention of investors in GUTZWILLER TWO is therefore explicitly drawn to the risks mentioned in the prospectus, and investors must accept these risks. In particular, investors need to be prepared and in a financial position to accept any even substantial losses on invested capital. The fund management of GUTZWILLER TWO, however, makes every effort to minimise risks as much as possible by utilising a broad diversification in the pursued investment strategy, by carefully selecting the underlying target funds and by closely monitoring these funds. Nevertheless, in exceptional circumstances one or more of the underlying target funds may suffer a total loss. Printing Date: November 15 8
