Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

As part of its investment process, Pelargos Capital includes all relevant financial risks in its investment decision making process and evaluates them on an ongoing basis. In doing so, all relevant sustainability risks within the meaning of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and of the Council of November 27, 2019, on sustainability-related disclosure requirements in the financial services sector (""Disclosure Regulation""), which could have a material negative impact on the return on an investment, are also taken into account.

Sustainability risk means an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of the investment. Sustainability risks can therefore lead to a significant decline in the financial profile, liquidity, profitability or reputation of the underlying investment. If sustainability risks are not already taken into account in the valuation process of the investments, they can have a material negative impact on the expected / estimated market price and/ or the liquidity of the investment and thus on the return of the fund. Sustainability risks can have a significant impact on all known risk types and, as a factor, can contribute to the materiality of these risk types.

Pelargos Capital's investment strategies do not promote environmental or social characteristics within the meaning of the Disclosure Regulation (Article 8) nor are they classified as sustainable investments (Article 9).
