CPRIM - Comprehensive Private Markets Access

CPRIM is a core private markets holding, which may provide high net worth individuals and smaller institutions with fully diversified exposure to the private markets, available via a convenient, efficient and transparent product.

Globally diversified private market investments within a single fund

Unique access to deal flow, global scale, and information advantage

Intends to provide superior risk-adjusted returns

Seeking to reduce portfolio volatility

Securities in the private markets lack the daily price transparency of securities in the public markets.
There are no assurances these objectives will be met. CPRIM may be considered speculative, has substantial costs and is not suitable for all investors. The investment’s share price is evaluated less frequently which does not indicate stability in the value of the underlying assets. Investors will have limited liquidity. CPRIM is not obligated to redeem any shares, and approval is at the Board of Trustees’ discretion. The share redemption plan is subject to other limitations, and the Board may modify, suspend or terminate the plan.
