BUSINESS CONTINUITY PLAN (US)

FAP USA, L.P. (the "Firm") has developed a Business Continuity Plan to ensure the Firm's preparedness and adaptability to respond to events that significantly disrupt our business operations. The Firm's Business Continuity Plan provides for variations in our response to an actual event since the timing and impact of disasters and disruptions are unpredictable. Please keep that in mind as you review the below information summarizing the Firm's Business Continuity Plan.

Our Business Continuity Plan - The Firm plans to quickly recover and resume business operations after a significant business disruption and respond by safeguarding our employees and property, making a financial and operational assessment, protecting our Firm's books and records, and allowing us to transact business. In short, our Business Continuity Plan is designed to permit our Firm to resume operations as quickly as possible, given the scope and severity of the significant business disruption.

Our Business Continuity Plan addresses: data back up and recovery; all mission critical systems; financial and operational assessments; alternative communications with customers, employees, and regulators; alternate physical location of employees; critical suppliers, contractors, bank and counter-party impact; regulatory reporting.

It is our Firm's practice to back up our electronic records on a daily basis and maintain these records in a geographically separate location.

Every emergency situation poses unique problems based on external factors, such as time of day, location and severity of the disruption.
