Registered Funds
AIP Alternative Lending Fund A will seek to provide total return with an emphasis on current income. It may invest in a broad range of alternative lending securities—including but not limited to consumer loans, small business loans and specialty finance loans—that generate interest of other income streams that AIP believes offer access to credit risk premium. It will provide exposure to various types of credit risk, and it will be diversified across US states, with the potential to add non-US exposure over time—including in the UK and Europe.  
AIP Macro Registered Fund A invests substantially all of its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers that employ global macro investment strategies. Global macro strategies, like other types of alternative investment strategies, allow investment managers the flexibility to use leveraged or short-sale positions to take advantage of perceived inefficiencies across the global capital markets.  
AIP Macro Registered Fund P, through its investment in its master fund, AIP Macro Registered Fund A ("MRF A"), invests substantially all of its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers that employ global macro investment strategies  
AIP Multi-Strategy Fund A (the "Fund") seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing substantially all its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers who employ different investment strategies in pursuit of attractive risk-adjusted returns (returns adjusted to take into account volatility of those returns) consistent with the preservation of capital.  
AIP Multi-Strategy Fund P (the "Fund" or "AMS P"), through its investment in AIP Multi-Strategy Fund A ("AMS A") seeks long-term capital appreciation by investing substantially all its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers who employ different investment strategies in pursuit of attractive risk-adjusted returns (returns adjusted to take into account volatility of those returns) consistent with the preservation of capital.  
Alternative Investment Partners Absolute Return Fund (the "Fund") is a fund of hedge funds that invests substantially all its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers who employ different absolute return investment strategies in pursuit of attractive risk-adjusted returns (returns adjusted to take into account volatility of those returns) consistent with the preservation of capital and not highly correlated with fixed income or equity indices.  
Alternative Investment Partners Absolute Return Fund STS is a fund of hedge funds that, through its ultimate master fund, Alternative Investment Partners Absolute Return Fund ("ARF"), invests substantially all its assets in private investment funds (commonly referred to as hedge funds) that are managed by a select group of alternative investment managers who employ different absolute return investment strategies in pursuit of attractive risk-adjusted returns (returns adjusted to take into account volatility of those returns) consistent with the preservation of capital and not highly correlated with fixed income or equity indices.

As of 2/29/2016. Team information may change from time to time.

This is prepared for sophisticated investors who are capable of understanding the risks associated with the investments described herein and may not be appropriate for you.  The information presented represents how the portfolio management team generally implements its investment process under normal market conditions.

All information provided has been prepared solely for information purposes and does not constitute an offer or a recommendation to buy or sell any particular security or to adopt any specific investment strategy. The information herein has not been based on a consideration of any individual investor circumstances and is not investment advice, nor should it be construed in any way as tax, accounting, legal or regulatory advice. To that end, investors should seek independent legal and financial advice, including advice as to tax consequences, before making any investment decision.  There is no guarantee that any investment strategy will work under all market conditions, and each investor should evaluate their ability to invest for the long-term, especially during periods of downturn in the market. 

Any views and opinions provided are those of the portfolio management team and are subject to change at any time due to market or economic conditions and may not necessarily come to pass. Furthermore, the views will not be updated or otherwise revised to reflect information that subsequently becomes available or circumstances existing, or changes occurring. The views expressed do not reflect the opinions of all portfolio managers at Morgan Stanley Investment Management (MSIM) or the views of the firm as a whole, and may not be reflected in all the strategies and products that the Firm offers.

Diversification does not protect you against a loss in a particular market; however it allows you to spread that risk across various asset classes.  Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Alternative investments are speculative and include a high degree of risk. Investors could lose all or a substantial amount of their investment. Alternative investments are suitable only for long-term investors willing to forego liquidity and put capital at risk for an indefinite period of time. Alternative investments are typically highly illiquid – there is no secondary market for private funds, and there may be restrictions on redemptions or assigning or otherwise transferring investments into private funds. Alternative investment funds often engage in leverage and other speculative practices that may increase volatility and risk of loss. Alternative investments typically have higher fees and expenses than other investment vehicles, and such fees and expenses will lower returns achieved by investors.

Real estate values are affected by many factors including interest rates and property tax rates, zoning laws, changes in supply and demand, and in the local, regional and national economies.

In the ordinary course of its business, Morgan Stanley engages in a broad spectrum of activities including, among others, financial advisory services, investment banking, asset management activities and sponsoring and managing private investment funds. In engaging in these activities, the interest of Morgan Stanley may conflict with the interests of clients.

Funds of funds often have a higher fee structure than single manager funds as a result of the additional layer of fees. Alternative investment funds are often unregulated, are not subject to the same regulatory requirements as mutual funds, and are not required to provide periodic pricing or valuation information to investors. The investment strategies described in the preceding pages may not be suitable for your specific circumstances; accordingly, you should consult your own tax, legal or other advisors, at both the outset of any transaction and on an ongoing basis, to determine such suitability.

A separately managed account may not be suitable for all investors. Separate accounts managed according to the Strategy include a number of securities and will not necessarily track the performance of any index. Please consider the investment objectives, risks and fees of the Strategy carefully before investing. A minimum asset level is required. For important information about the investment manager, please refer to Form ADV Part 2.

No investment should be made without proper consideration of the risks and advice from your tax, accounting, legal or other advisors as you deem appropriate.

The information on this page is solely for informational purposes only. It is intended for the benefit of third party issuers and those seeking information about alternatives investment strategies. The information contained herein does not constitute and should not be construed as an offering of advisory services or an offer to sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy any securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer or solicitation, purchase or sale would be unlawful under the securities, insurance or other laws of such jurisdiction.

All investing involves risks, including a loss of principal. Alternative investments are speculative and involve a high degree of risk. These investments are designed for investors who understand and are willing to accept these risks. Performance may be volatile, and an investor could lose all or a substantial portion of his or her investment.
