Summary of Risk Factors

Prospective investors should be aware that an investment in NB Global Private Equity Access Fund (the “Fund”) is speculative and involves a high degree of risk that is suitable only for those investors who have the financial sophistication and expertise to evaluate the merits and risks of an investment in the Fund and for which the Fund represents a small portion of their complete investment program. An investment should only be considered by persons who can afford a loss of their entire investment. The attention of investors is drawn to the fact that the Fund may invest in very illiquid assets. The Fund offers very limited redemption rights and there may be a suspension of the ability to redeem in case of redemption requests exceeding certain amounts. Redemption fees may also apply. Full redemption of the investor’s position can extend on several years. In light of the above specific features, the Fund is not suitable for investors who need liquidity with respect to their investments. The following is a summary of only certain considerations and is qualified in its entirety by the Prospectus and Key Information Document and prospective investors are urged to consult with their own tax, financial and legal advisors about the implications of investing in the Fund. Fees and expenses can be expected to reduce the Fund’s return. Please refer to the KID risk profile.

The Fund may make use of financial derivatives instruments which can involve significant risks of loss.

Market Conditions. The Fund’s strategy is based, in part, upon the premise that investments will be available for purchase by the Fund at prices that the Fund considers favourable. To the extent that current market conditions change or change more quickly than Neuberger Berman Group, LLC or an affiliate (collectively, “Neuberger Berman”) currently anticipates, investment opportunities may cease to be available to the Fund or investment opportunities that allow for the targeted returns described herein may no longer be available.

No Assurance of Investment Return. There can be no assurance or guarantee that the Fund’s objectives will be achieved, that the past, targeted or estimated results presented herein will be achieved, or that investors in the Fund (“Investors”) will receive any return on their investments in the Fund. The Fund’s performance may be volatile. The investments made by the Fund will sometimes involve a high degree of business and financial risk. An investment should therefore only be considered by persons who can afford a loss of their entire investment. Past activities of investment entities sponsored by Neuberger Berman provide no assurance or guarantee of future results. No assurance or guarantee can be given that investments meeting the Fund’s investment objectives can be acquired or disposed of at favourable prices or that the market for such investments (or market conditions generally) will either remain stable or, as applicable, recover or improve, since this will depend upon events and factors outside the control of the Fund’s investment team. Notwithstanding anything in this presentation to the contrary, Neuberger Berman, may vary its investment processes and/or execution from what is described herein.

Legal, Tax and Regulatory Risks. Legal, tax and regulatory changes (including changing enforcement priorities, changing interpretations of legal and regulatory precedents or varying applications of laws and regulations to particular facts and circumstances) could occur that may adversely affect the Fund or its shareholders.

Use of Borrowing and Leverage. The Fund may employ leverage and engage in borrowing in connection with its investment activities or participate in investments with highly leveraged capital structures. Although the use of leverage may enhance returns and increase the number of investments that can be made, leverage also involves a high degree of financial risk and may increase the exposure of such investments to factors such as rising interest rates, downturns in the economy, or deterioration in the condition of the assets underlying such investments. Moreover, the borrowings of the Fund may in certain cases be secured by the assets of the Fund, which may increase the risk of loss of such assets. Leverage may expose the fund to counterparty credit risk.

Highly Competitive Market for Investment Opportunities. The activity of identifying, completing and realizing attractive investments is highly competitive, and involves a high degree of uncertainty. There can be no assurance or guarantee that the Fund will be able to locate, consummate and exit investments that satisfy the Fund’s rate of return objectives or realize upon their values or that it will be able to invest fully its subscribed capital.

Reliance on Key Management Personnel. The success of the Fund will depend, in large part, upon the skill and expertise of certain Neuberger Berman professionals. In the event of the death, disability or departure of any key Neuberger Berman professionals, the business and the performance of the Fund may be adversely affected.

Potential Conflicts of Interest. The Board of Directors, the Alternative Investment Fund Manager, the Portfolio Managers, the Depositary, the Administrator and the other service providers of the Fund, and/or their respective affiliates, members, employees or any person connected with them may be subject to various actual or potential conflicts of interest in their relationship with the Fund.

Limited Liquidity. In certain circumstances, investments may become less liquid or illiquid due to a variety of factors including adverse conditions affecting a particular issuer, counterparty, or the market generally, and legal, regulatory or contractual restrictions on the sale of certain instruments. An investment in the Fund should be considered to be an illiquid investment because Shares are not generally transferable without the prior consent of the Board of Directors and the redemption rights of the Shareholders are restricted. In addition, transfer of the Shares may be affected by restrictions on resales imposed by applicable law. The Fund is not intended as a complete investment program and is designed only for persons who do not need liquidity with respect to their investments.

Valuation Risk. In light of the illiquid nature of the investments of the Fund, any valuation made of the NAV of the Shares or any of the investments will be based on the AIFM’s good faith determination as to the fair value of those investments. Valuations of investments used by the AIFM (and, accordingly, NAV per Share calculations used for subscriptions, redemptions and acquisitions) likely will not reflect the prices at which such investments are ultimately sold. Generally, neither redeeming Shareholders nor remaining Shareholders will have any recourse against the Fund, the AIFM, the Board of Directors or any of their respective affiliates if information available after a Valuation Date indicates that a prior NAV per Share was overvalued or undervalued.

Material, Non-Public Information. By reason of their responsibilities in connection with other activities of Neuberger Berman, certain employees may acquire confidential or material non-public information or be restricted from initiating transactions in certain securities. The Fund will not be free to act upon any such information. Due to these restrictions, the Fund may not be able to initiate a transaction that it otherwise might have initiated and may not be able to sell an investment that it otherwise might have sold.

Long-term nature. Investors should take note that the Fund is an illiquid investment and its investments are long-term in nature. The Fund is an open-ended vehicle. However, the Fund offers very limited redemption rights and there may be a suspension of the ability to redeem in case of redemption requests exceeding certain amounts. Redemption fees may also apply. Full redemption of the investor’s position can extend on several years. In light of the above specific features, the Fund is not suitable for investors who need liquidity with respect to their investments. The minimum required holding period for the Fund is ten years.


Investors are advised that only a small percentage of their overall investment portfolio should be invested in the Fund.
