BMO AM  has been engaged to act as placement agent for sale of interests in the Access Fund.  BMO AM will be paid a placement fee by the Access Fund of an annual amount equal to 0.50% of its net invested capital invested in Alignment Fund II (“Placement Fee”), for acting as placement agent in connection with BMO Global Asset Management’s placement of interests in the Access Fund.  The Alignment Fund II’s management fee charged to the Access Fund will be reduced dollar-for-dollar by the amount of the Placement Fee.  As a result of that management fee reduction the Georgian manager of Alignment Fund II, and not the Access Fund, will bear the economic burden of Placement Fees.  In addition, and separate from the Placement Fee, the Access Fund charges an annual management fee of 0.25% of committed capital plus 0.25% of its net invested capital invested in Alignment Fund II.
