These Statements are necessarily based upon speculation, expectations, views, estimates and/or assumptions made by ZAIS with respect to past or future events and anticipated future operations and performance, are inherently unreliable and are subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties, known and unknown risks and contingencies, many of which cannot be predicted or quantified and are beyond the control of ZAIS.

Future evidence and actual results could differ materially from those set forth in, contemplated by, or underlying these Statements. In light of these risks and uncertainties, there can be no assurance or representation that these Statements will prove to be accurate, timely or complete in any way.

Nature of Information Provided
This information has been prepared solely for informational purposes and is not an offer to buy or sell or a solicitation of an offer to buy or sell any security or instrument or to participate in any ZAIS vehicle which may or may not be made available. Any such offer of securities would, if made, only be made pursuant to definitive, final private offering documents (of which this presentation is not a part), which would contain material information not contained here (including certain risks) or material that differs from the information contained here and to which current and prospective investors are referred. Any decision to invest should be made solely in reliance upon such definitive, final private offering documents. In the event of any such offering, this information shall be deemed superseded, amended and supplemented in its entirety by such definitive, final private offering documents. Prospective investors should carefully consider the risk warnings and disclosures set forth there and here. Information contained here does not purport to be complete and is subject to the same qualifications and assumptions, and should be considered by investors only in the light of the same warnings, lack of assurances and representations and other precautionary matters, as disclosed in an applicable private offering memorandum and subscription agreement. No representation or warranty can be given with respect to the terms of any offer of securities conforming to the terms hereof. There is no guarantee that the strategies set forth here will be successful. Any securities issued will be issued pursuant to a private placement exemption and will not be registered under the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, or the laws of any state or other jurisdiction and will be subject to substantial restrictions on sale and transferability.
Forward Looking Statements
This presentation may include statements and information that relate to subjective viewpoints as well as, among other things, potential future events, plans, projections, transactions, and assets, including related future assumptions. All such statements and information, other than of historical fact, included in this presentation are, as applicable, forward-looking, constitute only subjective views, expectations, beliefs, outlooks, predictions, estimations or intentions, should not be relied upon and are subject to change. Actual events or results may differ materially. These statements and information are based upon assumptions, beliefs and analyses made on the basis of subjective perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors that ZAIS believes are appropriate in the circumstances. Statements may constitute “forward-looking statements” within the meaning of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934. They may be prefaced by or subject to terms such as “anticipate” “believe,” “continue,” “could,” “estimate,” “expect,” “intend,” “seek,” “approximately,” “may,” “plan,” “potential,” “should,” “would” and “will” or the negative thereof or other variations thereof or comparable terminology. These forward-looking statements include, among other things, projections, forecasts, estimates or hypothetical calculations with respect to income, yield or return, future performance targets, sample or pro forma portfolio structures or portfolio composition, scenario analysis, specific investment strategies or proposed or proforma levels of diversification or sector investment. These statements are necessarily based upon speculation, expectations, views, estimates and/or assumptions made by ZAIS with respect to past or future events and anticipated future operations and performance, are inherently unreliable and are subject to significant business, economic and competitive uncertainties, known and unknown risks and contingencies, many of which cannot be predicted or quantified and are beyond the control of ZAIS. Prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on such statements. No representation is made by ZAIS as to the accuracy, validity or relevance of any such forward-looking statement and the recipient agrees it is solely responsible for gathering its own information and undertaking its own projections, forecasts, estimates and hypothetical calculations. Future evidence and actual results could differ materially from those set forth in, contemplated by, or underlying these statements. All forward-looking statements included here are based on information available as of the date indicated and ZAIS does not assume any duty to update any forward-looking statement contained here. Some important factors which could cause actual results to differ materially from those in any forward-looking statements include, among others, the actual composition of the investment portfolio, any defaults in or to the investments, the timing of any defaults and subsequent recoveries, changes in interest rates, changes in currency rates and any weakening of the specific obligations included in the portfolio. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that estimated returns or projections can be realized, that forward-looking statements will materialize or that actual returns or results will not be materially lower or higher than those presented. The value of any investment, and the income from it, may fall as well as rise. Accordingly, there can be no assurances that an investor will receive back all or any of the original capital invested. Further, investments may be leveraged, and the portfolio of investments may lack diversification thereby increasing the risk of loss.

There can be no guarantee that responsible investing products or strategies will produce returns similar to or better than other strategies we manage. An environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) strategy restricts the types and number of available investments and prioritizes the ESG criteria over other investment criteria. Consequently, an ESG portfolio may perform differently from other strategies that do not screen for ESG factors. Responsible investing is qualitative and subjective by nature, and there can be no guarantee that the criteria we use, used or will use, or decisions we make, made or will make, will reflect any particular investor’s beliefs or values. We source some of the information we use in identifying responsible investments from voluntary or third-party reporting, which may not be accurate or complete. Responsible investing standards may vary by region. There can be no assurance that the responsible investing strategy and techniques we employed will be successful. Investors should be prepared to risk the loss of some or all of the capital invested in the ESG strategy.
