INTRODUCTION Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC (the Advisor), is a limited liability corporation organized under the laws of Iowa in March of 2011. The Advisor was not engaged in business from March 2011 until its registration as a commodity trading advisor on August 2, 2011. The Advisor has been registered as a commodity trading advisor with the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) and a member of the National Futures Association (NFA) since August 2, 2011. The business office of the Advisor is 4129 Spruce Hills Drive, Cedar Falls, Iowa, 50613, and its telephone number is 319-553-2183. The Advisor intends to use this Disclosure Document commencing April 3, 2012. The Advisors past performance is shown at page 2. There have never been any material administrative, civil or criminal actions (whether pending, on appeal, or concluded) against the Advisor or its principal.

PRINCIPAL OF THE ADVISOR

Scott J. Adkins is the sole principal and manager of Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC and an associated person (AP) of the Advisor. Scott is also a Senior Wealth Manager and Branch Office Manager with the Wealth Management Division of Peregrine Financial Group, Inc. (PFG or PFGBEST), a Registered Futures Commission Merchant and member of the NFA, whose main office location is located in Chicago, IL. He became approved as a Principal of the Advisor on June 2, 2011 and as an Associated Person of the Advisor on August 2, 2011. Scott joined the PFG team in May 2001 as a Customer Relations Manager (CRM). This position gave Scott the knowledge of PFGBEST products as well as the tools needed to advance in the futures industry. In 2002 and 2003 he transitioned from CRM to a full service broker, becoming an associated person in August 2002 and a branch office manager in July 2003 of Wasendorf & Son Company (Wasendorf), which was a Guaranteed Introducing Broker for PFG. In January 2003 he was registered as an AP of PFG and a branch office manager in July 2003. Scott ceased being an AP and branch manager for Wasendorf in October 2007 when Wasendorf ceased operating as an introducing broker for PFG. During his tenure as a broker Scott built a book of business, working with retail clients from around the world and advising them on the day-to-day activities of the markets. Joining the Wealth Management Team as a Senior Wealth Manager, Scott has brought his knowledge of the markets and risk management skills to bear, working with clients on asset allocation and over-all market strategies as well as advising clients on Broker Assisted Strategies. Scott was instrumental in developing the broker-assisted option selling strategy DIEM (Diversified Investments in Efficient Markets). He is one of the two primary traders for the DIEM strategy. DIEM is designed to help the investor diversify a small portion of their risk capital into more than the traditional assets. DIEM holds and adjusts diversified positions of short options allowing time decay and implied volatility to potentially work in the clients favor. DIEM investors are in the business of selling option premium to speculators looking to pick the next directional move.

Drawdown means losses experienced by the composite over a specific period. Rate of Return is calculated by dividing the Net Performance by the Adjusted Beginning Net Asset Value (Beginning Net Asset Value plus time weighted additions and withdrawals) multiplied by 100. Worst Peak to Valley drawdown is the greatest cumulative percentage decline in month-end net asset value of the composite due to losses during a period in which the initial month-end net asset value is not equaled or exceeded by a subsequent month-end net asset value. The performance summary was adjusted to reflect a 30% monthly incentive fee until the Advisor commenced operation. All accounts in the performance summary were charged in excess of $15.00 per round turn transaction plus applicable NFA and exchange fees plus floor brokerage, if applicable.

Drawdown means losses experienced by the composite over a specified period. Rate of Return is calculated by dividing the Net Performance by the Adjusted Beginning Net Asset Value (Beginning Net Asset Value plus time weighted additions and withdrawals) multiplied by 100. Worst Peak to Valley drawdown is the greatest cumulative percentage decline in month-end net asset value of the composite due to losses during a period in which the initial month-end net asset value is not equaled or exceeded by a subsequent month-end net asset value. It is calculated above by adding the monthly rates of return from August 2009 through October 2011. Mr. Adkins traded these accounts pursuant to powers of attorney but the trading strategies were supplied by the clients. In September 2011, the account lost $292,015, resulting in a debit balance at 10-31-2011 of $3,169.24. The account was short options in October, November, and December 2011. Although no further trades were made in the account, the loss increased in October 2011 and decreased in November and December 2011, when the options expired worthless.

THE TRADING ADVISOR HAS ALSO DIRECTED ONE PROPRIETARY ACCOUNT. SEE EXHIBIT F.

ABOUT THE TRADING METHODOLOGY Trading Program The ADC Diversified Options Program is a premium collecting options selling program. It seeks profits primarily from the passage of time by selling both calls and puts, options on futures contracts including but not limited to financial index futures, interest rate futures, agricultural futures, metals futures, energy futures and soft futures (coffee, sugar and cocoa). The program sells strangle spreads in an attempt to collect premium for clients in the anticipation that options will expire worthless. A strangle is generally defined as the purchase or sale of a call option and put option at different strike prices. The ADC Option Program will usually simultaneously sell an out of the money put option and sell an out of the money call option in the same commodity future and same month. The program also attempts to be relatively delta neutral in its positions. Delta is the proportion of change in the option premium relative to the price movement in the underlying futures price. By delta neutral the Advisor means the delta of the call option and the delta of the put option are within 5% one direction or the other direction. The program tries to maintain a non directional bias. Positions are attempted to be kept small relative to the account size (what the Advisor terms de-leveraged), and relatively diversified across market sectors. The ADC Diversified Options Program also attempts to take into consideration correlations between markets in an attempt to avoid long term proven correlations. The attempted result should be a relative diversification of trades. New trade selection and risk-management follow-up are dictated by using filters and guidelines that have been developed to attempt to enhance money management techniques. The Adkins Diversified Capital Options Program is proactive in regards to taking new trades and making adjustments to current trades. New order entry is responsive to short-term changes in Implied Volatility. Implied Volatility is extracted from the option premium by calculating the value of a theoretical option pricing model to determine what the market option of volatility will be. Risk-management is opportunistic about changes in price, and net delta of the position and is within specific guidelines. Also, existing positions will be added frequently, attempting to remain somewhat delta neutral. The ADC Diversified Options Program will exit positions when profit targets are achieved. The risks in this program can be unlimited. However, the Advisor will employ risk management techniques that will attempt to reduce of the size of potential losses. If the combined net delta of the call option and put option exceed a set amount and the Advisor determines the position is either too bullish or bearish, the Advisor will make adjustments to the position ( buying or selling additional options) in order to bring the net delta back within reasonable limits.

NOTIONAL FUNDS
Please Note: The following has been provided solely for the purpose of helping prospective clients to fully understand the information contained in this Disclosure Document. It is not meant as a recommendation by Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC to clients to fund accounts with notional equity. Clients should consult their financial advisors to determine whether or not the use of notional equity is suitable for them.

Clients may direct the Advisor to employ notional funds when trading a clients account. Notional funds in a clients account are funds not actually held in the account, but the amount of notional funds will be traded as if actually in a clients account. Notional equity creates additional leverage in an account

relative to the cash in such account. This additional leverage results in proportionately greater risk of loss (and opportunity for gain). While the possibility of losing all of the cash in an account is present in all accounts, accounts that contain notional equity have a proportionately greater risk of loss. For example, for an account that is funded with only fifty percent (50%) cash and, therefore, has fifty percent (50%) notional equity, a ten percent (10%) loss of the accounts total value (based on both cash and notional equity) will equal a loss of twenty percent (20%) of the cash in the account. Additionally, an account employing notional equity may receive more frequent and larger margin calls. To better understand notional funding, the reader is referred to the notional funds matrix found below. The matrix on this page allows a reader to take the actual rate of return for a given portfolio at various funding levels and determine the adjusted rate of return at those levels. Level of Funding(2) 100% -30.00% -20.00% -10.00% 10.00% 20.00% 30.00% 40.00% 50.00% 60.00% 75% 50% 25%

(1) This column represents the range of actual rates of return for fully funded accounts. (2) This represents the percentage of actual funds divided by the fully funded trading level. (3) These columns represent the rate of return experienced by a customer at various levels of funding traded by the Advisor. The rates of return for accounts that are not fully funded are inversely proportional to the actual rates of return based on the percentage level of funding.

Those parties interested in employing the use of notional funds must complete Exhibit C, the Addendum to Managed Account Agreement Special Disclosure for Notionally Funded Accounts.

PRINCIPAL RISK FACTORS Trading futures contracts and options thereon involves a HIGH DEGREE OF RISK. Before investing, a prospective client should consult his/her financial advisor(s) to inform themselves fully on futures trading and to determine if futures are suitable for their investment needs. Futures trading involves many risks. The client should review this section and the entire Disclosure Document and become familiar with some of the more significant risks. 1. Trading Is Speculative and Volatile. Commodity interest prices are highly volatile. Price movements for commodity interests are influenced by, among other things: changing supply and

demand relationships; weather; agricultural, trade, fiscal, monetary, and exchange control programs and policies of governments; United States and foreign political and economic events and policies; changes in national and international interest rates and rates of inflation; currency devaluations and revaluations; and emotions of the marketplace. None of these factors can be controlled by the Advisor and no assurance can be given that the Advisors advice will result in profitable trades for a participating client or that a client will not incur substantial losses. 2. Trading Is Highly Leveraged. The leverage in futures trading comes from the minimal amount of margin necessary to purchase a futures contract. Normally, the amount of margin funds necessary to be deposited with a futures broker in order to enter into a futures contract position is between three percent (3%) and ten percent (10%) of the total value of the contract but can be more or less. A relatively small movement in the price of a contract can produce a loss that is equal to or substantially greater than the margin deposit. 3. Potential Illiquidity of Contract. Futures positions cannot always be liquidated at the desired price. Such limitation can occur when the market is thinly traded (i.e., a relatively small volume of buy and sell orders). Some futures contracts are also subject to daily price fluctuation limits. These limits are exchange -imposed restrictions on the maximum price fluctuation that may occur in a futures contract on any one trading day. For example, if the price of a futures contract rises to its daily limit, no trades may take place that day above the limit price. Prices of some futures contracts have moved to daily limit for several consecutive days with little or no trading, and such situations could recur. In these instances, the Advisor may be unable to liquidate certain unprofitable positions for some time, thereby increasing the loss to a clients account from the trade. 4. Options on Futures Contracts and Physical Commodities. Options on futures contracts and physical commodities have been approved by the CFTC for trading on U.S. and certain non-U.S. futures exchanges. Each such option is a right, purchased for a certain price, to either buy or sell a futures contract or physical commodity during a certain period of time for a pre-established price. Although successful options trading probably requires many of the same skills required for successful futures or forward contract trading, the risks involved may be somewhat different. For example, if the Advisor, on behalf of a participating customer, buys an option (either to sell or buy a futures contract or commodity), the customer will be required to pay a "premium" representing the market value of the option. Unless the price of the futures contract or commodity underlying the option changes and it becomes profitable to exercise or offset the option before it expires, the Client may lose the entire amount of the premium. Conversely, if the Advisor, on behalf of a Client, sells an option (either to sell or buy a futures contract or commodity), the Client will be credited with the premium but will have to deposit margin with the customer's FCM due to the customer's contingent liability to deliver or accept the futures contract or commodity underlying the option in the event the option is exercised. Traders who sell options are subject to the entire loss which occurs in the underlying futures contract or commodity (less any premium received). The ability to trade in or exercise options may be restricted in the event that trading in the underlying futures contract or commodity becomes restricted. THERE IS AN UNLIMITED RISK OF LOSS IN SELLING OPTIONS. BECAUSE THE ADVISOR WILL ENGAGE IN AN OPTIONS SELLING PROGRAM, PROSPECTIVE CLIENTS SHOULD CAREFULLY CONSIDER THE RISKS IN THIS OPTIONS SELLING PROGRAM. Options trading on U.S. futures exchanges is subject to regulation by both the CFTC and such exchanges. 5. Speculative Position Limits. The CFTC has established limits (speculative position limits) on the maximum net long or net short positions that any person may hold or control in certain futures contracts. Futures exchanges also have established such limits. All accounts controlled by the Advisor must be combined for speculative position limit purposes. If positions in those accounts

were to approach the level of speculative position limits such limits could cause a modification of the Advisors trading decisions for a clients account, or force liquidation of certain futures positions. 6. Proprietary Trading Methodology. Because specific elements of the Advisors trading methods are proprietary to it, a client will not be able to determine the full details of the methods or whether the methods are being followed. For more information regarding the Advisors Program, please see About The Trading Methodology. 7. Risk of Failure of Futures Commission Merchant. Under CFTC regulations, futures commission merchants (referred to herein in the singular as a FCM and in the plural as FCMs) are required to maintain a clients assets in a segregated account. If the FCM used by a client fails to do so, the client may be subject to a risk of loss of his funds on deposit with his FCM in the event of its bankruptcy. In addition, under certain circumstances, such as the inability of another client of the FCM or the FCM itself to satisfy substantial deficiencies in such other clients account, a client may be subject to a risk of loss of his funds on deposit with his FCM, even if such funds are properly segregated. In the case of any such bankruptcy or client loss, a client might recover, even with respect to property specifically traceable to the client, only a pro-rata share of all property available for distribution to all of the FCMs clients. 8. Devotion of Time to Advisory Affairs. The Advisor shall devote such time to managing clients accounts as it deems necessary to effectively manage such accounts. The Advisor and its principal may engage in other business activities and shall not be required to refrain from any other activity or disgorge any profits from any such activity.

9. Electronic Order Entry. The Advisor may place trades via electronic order platforms for the Program. In such instances, trading through an electronic trading or order routing system exposes you to risks associated with system or component failure. The risk exists that a trade may not be placed, a trade may be placed at a later time than originally desired, or a trade may not be able to be cancelled. These occurrences, which are beyond the Advisors control, could result in losses to a clients account. 10. Tax Liability. Clients should satisfy themselves as to the income tax and other tax consequences of an investment in a managed account program with specific reference to their own tax situation by obtaining advice from their own tax counsel before participating in a managed account program. 11. Dependence on Key Personnel. The Advisors success is dependent exclusively on the skill and investment acumen of Mr. Adkins, the Advisors Principal. If Mr. Adkins should die, become incompetent or disabled (i.e., unable, by reason of disease, illness or injury, to perform his functions with respect to the Advisor), or otherwise cease to be involved in the affairs of the Advisor, the Advisors ability to select attractive investments and manage Clients account would be severely impaired. 12. Trading Disruptions. Following the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001, the United States financial markets were closed for several days. In addition, once they were reopened, these markets experienced extreme volatility and a lack of liquidity. There can be no assurance that world events will not cause severe market disruptions in the future. If such market disruptions were to occur again, Clients performance could be adversely affected due to the fact that Clients assets will be invested in these markets. For instance, the Advisors ability to liquidate a position in order to limit losses could be hindered.

. The foregoing risk factors do not purport to be a complete explanation of all of the risks involved while investing in the Program. Prospective clients should read this Disclosure Document in its entirety before determining whether to invest in the Program.

FEES As compensation for its services, the Advisor charges a monthly incentive fee. The Advisor reserves the right to reduce or waive the incentive fee for any one client account without notification to other client accounts of such a reduction or waiver. The Advisor shall be entitled to receive a monthly incentive fee of thirty percent (30%) of Net New Profits. New Net Profits are calculated as of the last trading day of the month and are the sum of: (i) the net of profits and losses resulting from all trades closed out during the month, plus (ii) the net of any profits or losses on open trades as of the close of the month, minus: (i) the net of any profits or losses carried forward on open trades from the preceding month, and (ii) cumulative net realized losses Carryforward Loss, if any, carried forward from the preceding month. New Net Profits are calculated after reduction for any accrued brokerage commissions and fees. The amount of interest income, if any, earned during the month is excluded for purposes of calculating New Net Profits. In the event that a partial withdrawal occurs when there is a Carryforward Loss, the amount of the Carryforward Loss will be reduced for future periods by the ratio obtained by dividing the amount of the withdrawal by the Net Asset Value prior to such withdrawal. Net Asset Value is defined as total assets of the account, including all cash and cash equivalents, market value of all open commodity positions, and accrued interest, less all liabilities of the account, including any accrued brokerage commissions and fees, plus notional funds, if any (See Addendum To Advisory Agreement/Special Disclosure For NotionallyFunded Accounts). Incentive fees are billed by the Advisor directly to the carrying FCM (PFGBEST) to be paid out of a clients account, unless the Advisor and client have otherwise made a different arrangement. Upon presentation of the bill to the FCM, the FCM and the Advisor are authorized by the client to deduct the fees directly from the clients account. Either the Advisor or the investor may terminate the agreement by delivering a written notification of such termination to the other party. Clients must sign a Fee Payment Authorization directing the futures commission merchant (PFGBEST) carrying this account to pay such Incentive Fees directly to the Advisor from the account as they become payable, upon the presentation of an invoice by the Advisor. At Clients request the Advisor will furnish a copy of the invoice to the Client. PFGBEST, the FCM, will charge the client $15.00 per round turn transaction (sale and purchase of an option or future) plus applicable NFA and exchange fees and floor brokerage if a floor broker is used to execute an order. Neither the Advisor nor Scott Adkins will share in the commissions paid to PFGBEST.

In order to provide for more efficient execution of orders for the account, the Advisor may place orders for execution through one broker, which will later be given up by the executing broker to the FCM. When signing the managed account agreement attached hereto, the client agrees to pay all give up fees. The Advisor estimates these fees will range from $0.50 to $3.00 per contract side (buy or sell).

CLEARING BROKER, ACCOUNT STATEMENTS, AND COMMISSIONS All of a clients funds are deposited with an FCM and, at times, invested in US Treasury Bills or other money market investments. The US Treasury Bills or other money market investments provide income for clients and serve as an interest-bearing source of initial and maintenance margin for the purchase or sale of futures contracts. Clients must use Peregrine Financial Group, Inc. (PFGBEST) as their FCM. PFGBEST is an Iowa corporation with its principal address at 311 W. Monroe Street, Suite 1300, Chicago Illinois 60606. PFGBEST is registered with the Commodities Futures Trading Commission ("CFTC") as a futures commission merchant ("FCM") and is a member of the National Futures Association ("NFA"). The clients can select an introducing broker of the clients choice. PFGBEST will maintain the Customer's account on a "fully disclosed" basis. The positions and funds of the Customer held by PFGBEST will be commingled with those of other customers, but segregated or separated from those of the Broker, pursuant to the CFTC's rules. PFGBEST clears its customers' transactions on an omnibus basis. PFGBEST will be responsible for the transaction and order execution of futures, options and off-exchange foreign currency contracts, as well as certain administrative duties, such as record keeping, transmittal of confirmation and statements to the Customer, and calculating the equity balances and margin requirements for the Customer's account. PFGBEST is not connected in any way with this trading program, other than in its capacity as an FCM for the Customer's account. The opening and maintenance of the Customer's accounts with PFGBEST does not constitute an endorsement or recommendation of this trading program by PFGBEST. PFGBEST will hold the assets of each clients account and trades will be executed through PFG. Each client will receive confirmations and monthly account statements from its FCM reflecting all transactions entered into on its behalf by the Advisor. These records should be reviewed immediately upon receipt in order to monitor the status of the accounts managed by the Advisor, and should be retained for future reference. MATERIAL PROCEEDINGS: On February 8, 2012, the NFA accepted an offer of settlement submitted by PFG, Russell R. Wasendorf, Jr., Susan OMeara and Nolan Schiff in which, without admitting or denying the allegations, PFG agreed to pay a fine of $700,000. In addition, PFG, without admitting or denying the necessity of such, agreed to retain an independent consultant to review PFGs existing procedures for supervising its GIBs. The independent consultant will make specific recommendations which PFG will implement with regard to the supervision of trading in broker assisted retail customer accounts. PFG agreed to not enter into any new guarantee agreements with IBs for a period of two years from February 8, 2012, without petitioning the NFA for relief. Further, PFG agreed to designate a full-time AML officer for PFG. On February 1, 2012, PFG was sued by the Receiver for the Estates of Trevor Cook, Patrick Kiley, Jason Beckman, UBS Diversified Growth, LLC, Market Shot, LLC, Oxford Global Advisors, LLC, Oxford Global Partners, LLC, Oxford Global FX, LLC and Oxford Growth FX, LP. The suit alleges that fraudulent transfers were made through PFG by the estates. PFG denies the allegations and is vigorously defending the suit.

11

Other than the aforementioned matters, there have been no other material administrative, civil, or criminal proceedings against PFG or any of its principals within the preceding five years of the date of this Disclosure Document that would be material to a client's decision to open and maintain a commodities account with PFG. The Advisor, solely in reliance upon representations of the management of PFGBEST, believes that any pending litigation in which PFGBEST may be involved will not have a material effect upon PFGBEST's condition, financial or otherwise, and that such actions are not material to the Customer's decision to have his account carried by PFGBEST. PFGBEST vigorously defends, as a matter of policy, civil litigation, reparations and arbitration proceedings brought against it and, in all such proceedings currently pending, the management of PFGBEST has represented to the Advisor that PFGBEST has factually and legally sound defenses.

ACTUAL AND POTENTIAL CONFLICTS OF INTEREST 1. Right and Intent to Manage Other Clients. The Advisor reserves the right to advise and manage, respectively, other clients. Thus, a conflict of interest may arise because: The Advisor is allocating its time and orders among different client accounts. These various other accounts may be deemed to be competing for the same or similar positions in the market. When advising more than one account, price volatility and variations in liquidity from time to time as well as differences in order execution may make it impossible for the Advisor to obtain identical trade executions for all accounts. Further, the Advisor and its principal may also determine from time to time that some investment opportunities are appropriate for certain clients (of the Advisor or an affiliate thereof) and not others, due to differing objectives, time horizons, liquidity needs or availability, or other general market conditions. The Advisor may block order entry of client accounts with other customer accounts guided by the Advisor. To make block order allocations as fair as possible, the Advisor may take such actions as it deems appropriate to allocate orders equitably among the accounts involved. Currently, when client trade orders are entered at varying price levels , the Advisor uses the average price and quantity method of order allocation. Under such a method, the Advisor will instruct an (the) FCM to calculate the average price for each block order and allocate the actual fill prices among the accounts included in the order to approximate, as closely as possible, the average fill price.

2. Non-customer and Proprietary Accounts. The Advisor and its principal(s) reserve the right to trade for their own account (non-customer and proprietary accounts). Non-customer and proprietary accounts include, but are not limited to, accounts that are fifty or more percent (50%+) beneficially owned or controlled by the Advisor, a principal thereof or any affiliate or family members of the Advisor or its principal. These non-customer and proprietary trades may be executed and cleared through any IB or FCM also utilized by a client account. A potential conflict of interest with respect to the client account may exist if non-customer and proprietary trades are executed in similar positions, at the same time, and in the same market. In such an event, the Advisor will avoid as much conflict as possible by allocating a worse fill order for the non-customer and proprietary account(s). Due to their confidential nature, the records of the Advisor and the Advisors clients are not generally available for inspection, except as provided in the following sentence. If the Advisor or

12

its principal(s) have a proprietary account, the trading records of the proprietary account will be available for inspection by clients. 3. Incentive Fee. The monthly incentive fee payable to the Advisor is based on a percentage of Net New Profits (as defined). This arrangement may create an incentive for the Advisor to make trades that are riskier or more speculative than would be the case if the Advisor were compensated solely on an asset based management fee. 4. Indirect Compensation Arrangements. The Principal of the Advisor is an associated person and branch manager of PFG. The Advisor may receive some form of indirect compensation or consideration from PFG as a result of the maintenance of any client accounts with PFG. PFG may provide the Advisor with quotation services, marketing services, market research and analysis, and other such services, which services may be based in part on the number of transactions that the Advisors clients execute through the PFG. No such arrangements currently exist. PFG provides the Principal of the Advisor with office space, telephone services and regular compensation. This may create a conflict of interest between the Advisors interest in continuing to receive these services and its duty to manage customer trading without concern for trading frequency. This may also create a conflict of interest between the Advisors duty to recommend different FCMs and the Advisors interest in having a client maintain his account at PFG. 5. Payment to Third Parties. The Advisor may, at its discretion, pay certain parties (who are appropriately registered under the Commodity Exchange Act) portions of the fees that the Advisor earns as compensation for the introduction of Clients accounts. Such parties must be registered with the CFTC as an IB or as an FCM. The IB or FCM may remit some or all of its compensation to certain of its employees who are registered as associated persons.

PRIVACY POLICY The Advisor, as a member of the financial services industry, has been and continues to be subject to laws and regulations regarding the collection and exchange of nonpublic personal information about the client. Clients that choose to invest in the Program will provide the Advisor with certain personal information about the clients. Advisor pledges its commitment to maintain the confidentiality of this information, and to not disclose this information to any nonaffiliated, third parties other than regulatory agencies and other legal authorities as required by law. Further, the Advisor agrees to protect the investors information by restricting access to such nonpublic personal information to those employees with a legitimate need for the information. If a client decides to terminate this Agreement, the Advisor agrees to adhere to the privacy policies and practices as set forth above. In the event Advisor amends its privacy policy, the Advisor agrees to provide clients with appropriate notice when such privacy policy changes.

GENERAL INFORMATION The minimum initial account requires a deposit of $30,000. The Advisor may, in its discretion, waive or change this minimum investment requirement for any one client and without notice to other clients. Transactions effected for accounts managed by the Advisor may be subject to tax and accounting considerations. While the Advisor has general familiarity with these matters, the Advisor itself does not render professional tax counsel. Clients are advised to retain a professional tax advisor for the purposes of carefully assessing such matters with respect to the clients particular tax planning objectives and accounting standards.

13

It should also be noted that the Advisor makes no expressed or implied assurance of profit or guaranty against loss in connection with its management of client accounts. Prospective clients are advised to review carefully this Disclosure Document, including the Risk Disclosure Statements on page ii of this document, to consider the potential risk/reward factors and to clarify any questions prior to opening an account. In addition to the execution of Exhibit B, the Managed Account Agreement, each client may also be required to execute the various new account forms, powers-of-attorney, risk disclosure documents, authorization to do give-ups, notional equity agreements (where applicable) and customer agreements of the FCM or IB for the clients account.

WHEREAS, Client hereby acknowledges to Advisor that client has received, read and understood and carefully considered the risks outlined in the Disclosure Document for the Advisors ADC Diversified Options Program (the Program), dated April 3, 2012, of Advisor and that no person is authorized by Advisor to make statements in addition to, or inconsistent with, those contained in such Disclosure Document, WHEREAS, Client desires to retain Advisor as Clients commodity trading advisor pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth in this Agreement, and Advisor desires to service Client pursuant to such terms and conditions. NOW THEREFORE, in consideration of the premises set forth above, the parties hereto do hereby agree as follows: 1. CLIENTS ACCOUNT.

If Client owns more than one Account, which is managed by Advisor, each such Account shall be subject to this Agreement. 2. REPRESENTATION OF ADVISOR. Advisor represents and Client acknowledges that Advisor is currently registered with the Commodities Futures Trading Commission as a commodity trading advisor and is a Member of the National Futures Association. 3. REPRESENTATIONS OF CLIENT. Client hereby represents to Advisor that Client has capital available and desires to invest such capital in speculative investments in futures contracts, over-the-counter foreign currency contracts, and other similar financial instruments and options on such instruments (Investments). Client acknowledges receipt of Advisors Disclosure Document dated April 3, 2012. Client, if an individual, hereby represents to Advisor that Client is of full legal age in the jurisdiction in which Client resides and is legally competent to execute and deliver this Agreement and to purchase, sell, trade and own Investments as contemplated by this Agreement. Client, if a corporation, partnership, limited liability company, trust or other entity or association, hereby represents to Advisor that Client has full power and authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and to purchase, sell, trade and own Investments as contemplated by this Agreement and the individual executing and delivering this Agreement for and on behalf of Client is of full legal age in the jurisdiction in which such individual resides and is legally competent and has full power and authority to do so on behalf of Client and its officer(s) stockholder(s), partner(s), manager(s), member(s) or beneficiaries, if any. Client hereby represents to Advisor that Client is fully familiar with the speculative nature of trading in Investments and its high degree of risk that makes such trading suitable only for a person who can sustain substantial losses that may be far in excess of such persons funds on deposit in such persons Account.

B-1

Client hereby represents to Advisor that Client is willing and able, financially and otherwise, to assume the risks of trading in Investments and has financial ability to bear losses in excess of the amount deposited pursuant to Section 1 of this Agreement. 4. AUTHORIZATION TO THE ADVISOR TO ENTER ORDERS FOR THE ACCOUNT. Client appoints Advisor as his sole attorney-in-fact with respect to the Account to buy, sell or otherwise trade in Investments through the Broker pursuant to the Advisors trading system. Client hereby gives and grants to Advisor full power and authority to act for Client and on Clients behalf to do every act and thing whatsoever requisite, necessary or appropriate to be done in connection with this power of attorney as fully and in the same manner and with the same force and effect as Client might do or could do if personally present, and Client hereby ratifies and confirms any and all transactions heretofore made by Advisor for the Account and agrees that the rights and obligations of Client in respect thereof shall be governed by the terms of this Agreement. Advisor shall have discretionary authority to make all trading decisions for the Account, without prior consultation with Client and without prior notice to Client with respect to such trading decisions. By this Agreement, Client authorizes the Broker to permit Advisor to enter orders for his account. Client acknowledges that in order to provide for more efficient execution of orders for the Account, the Advisor may place orders for execution through one broker, which will later be given up by the executing broker to the Broker. Client agrees to pay all give up fees. 5. ACKNOWLEDGMENT OF RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH COMMODITIES FUTURES AND OPTIONS INVESTMENT TRADING, LACK OF GUARANTEE BY THE ADVISOR AND CONFLICTS OF INTEREST. Client is aware of the speculative nature in trading Investments (which includes the risk that Client may incur trading losses in excess of capital contributed to the Account). Client also acknowledges that no safe trading system has ever been devised, and that no one can guarantee profits or freedom from loss in such trading. The Advisor, therefore, cannot and does not imply or guarantee that Client will make a profit and it is expressly agreed that Advisor will not be liable to Client or any other party for any act or omission in the course of or in connection with the rendering of its services hereunder, except for acts or omissions by Advisor or its employees, affiliates or agents which constitute gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud. Client shall indemnify Advisor, its principals and employees for all liability incurred in the performance of the services required by this Agreement, provided that there has been no judicial determination that such liability was the result of gross negligence, willful misconduct or fraud on the part of Advisor and provided further that any conduct of Advisor which was the basis for such liability was done with the good faith belief of Advisor that it was in the best interest of Client. 6. ADDITIONS TO AND WITHDRAWALS FROM THE ACCOUNT. Client may add to or withdraw from the cash balance of the Account upon prior written notice to Advisor to the extent consistent with margin requirements of the Broker and applicable contract markets, provided that Client may not withdraw funds from the Account (unless he intends to terminate this Agreement) if to do so would cause the balance in the Account to fall below a level such that Advisor believes that the Account should no longer be traded. Client recognizes that the potential profitability of the Account depends upon long term, uninterrupted investment of capital and that reduction of equity could materially and adversely affect the potential profitability of the Account. This notification requirement does not restrict a clients ability to access funds at the FCM. Client further recognizes that Advisor has complete discretion to terminate this Agreement pursuant to Section 9 below. 7. Fees. The Advisor charges clients a monthly Incentive Fee equal to 30% of the account's New Net Profits payable as of the end of each calendar month payable as of the end of each month. The terms Net Asset Value and New Net Profits are defined below. The Advisor reserves the right to negotiate different fees at any time.

B-2

A. Net Asset Value is defined as total assets of the account, including all cash and cash equivalents, market value of all open commodity positions, and accrued interest, less all liabilities of the account, including any accrued brokerage commissions and fees, plus notional funds, if any (See Addendum To Advisory Agreement/Special Disclosure For Notionally-Funded Accounts). B. New Net Profits are calculated as of the last trading day of the month and are the sum of: (i) the net of profits and losses resulting from all trades closed out during the quarter, plus (ii) the net of any profits or losses on open trades as of the close of the month, minus: (i) the net of any profits or losses carried forward on open trades from the preceding month, and (ii) cumulative net realized losses Carryforward Loss, if any, carried forward from the preceding month . New Net Profits are calculated after reduction for any accrued brokerage commissions and fees. The amount of interest income earned, if any, during the month is excluded for purposes of calculating New Net Profits. In the event that a partial withdrawal occurs when there is a Carryforward Loss, the amount of the Carryforward Loss will be reduced for future periods by the ratio obtained by dividing the amount of the withdrawal by the Net Asset Value prior to such withdrawal.

INCENTIVE FEE. The Incentive Fee is 30% of the New Net Profits in an account monthly. Incentive Fees, once paid, will not be refunded in the event of subsequent losses. However, no Incentive Fees are payable until future net profits for the succeeding month exceed Carryforward Loss. The Incentive Fee is payable as of the last business day of the month to which the fee applies. If an account is opened during a month, the Incentive Fee, if any, is payable in full at the end of the month without proration. New Net Profits and Net Asset Value are adjusted by proration for any additions to and withdrawals from an account during a period. Clients must sign a Fee Payment Authorization directing the futures commission merchant ("PFGBEST") carrying this account to pay such Incentive Fees directly to the Advisor from the account as they become payable, upon the presentation of an invoice by the Advisor. At Clients request the Advisor will furnish a copy of the invoice.

8. RESPONSIBILITIES OF THE BROKER. Client recognizes that Advisor will transmit orders on his behalf to the Broker. Advisors responsibilities with respect to any of Clients transactions shall be fulfilled at the time that a complete order has been transmitted to the FCM. Advisor shall not be responsible for any acts, omissions or errors of the FCM in executing such orders. The FCM will furnish Client with confirmations of all transactions executed in the Account, monthly statements showing information concerning trading activities in the Account and other account statements customarily furnished by the FCM to customers of guaranteed introducing brokers. Client authorizes the FCM to forward to Advisor copies of any confirmations, statements or reports sent by FCM to Client. Client understands that FCM, rather than Advisor, will have full custody of Clients funds and investment positions. 9. TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR TERMINATION. This Agreement shall terminate upon written notice by any party hereunder to the other party. Notice shall be deemed given on the close of business on the day such notice is actually received by Advisor or Client. This Agreement shall also automatically terminate upon written notice to Advisor of the death, legal disability, dissolution, or bankruptcy of Client. Termination shall be effective on the date such written notice is deemed given pursuant to Section 15 of this Agreement. If either party terminates this Agreement, the incentive fee shall be calculated (and, if due, paid) as if the termination date of the Account were the end of the calendar quarter. When either party terminates this Agreement, Client shall be liable for all costs, expenses and losses incurred in liquidating open positions upon termination. 10. MANAGEMENT OF OTHER ACCOUNTS BY THE ADVISOR, TRADING BY THE ADVISOR FOR ITS OWN ACCOUNT(S). The services rendered hereunder are not exclusive and Client acknowledges that

B-3

Advisor may manage other client accounts and intends to do so in the future. Client acknowledges that Advisor reserves the right to charge management and incentive fees different from those described above for other accounts that it manages. Advisor and its principal(s) may trade Investments for their own account(s). 11. ASSIGNMENT. This Agreement shall not be assignable by Client without the written consent of Advisor or by Advisor without notice to Client and shall be binding upon the parties hereto, their heirs, respective legal representatives and successors and assigns. 12. GOVERNING LAW. This Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the laws of the State of Iowa. If any provision is found unenforceable, then this Agreement shall be enforced and construed as if that invalid provision did not appear. 13. SECTION HEADINGS. The section headings in this Agreement are for convenience of reference only and shall not be deemed to interpret or modify the provisions of the Agreement. 14. ENTIRE AGREEMENT.

Either party may change his address by giving notice in writing to the other party stating his new address. Commencing on the tenth (10th) day after the giving of such notice, such newly designated address shall be the partys address for the purpose of all notices or communications required or permitted to be given pursuant to this Agreement. Notices to Advisor from Client shall be deemed given as of the close of business on the day such notices are actually received by Advisor. 16. CONFIDENTIALITY. Client understands that the trading method employed by Advisor is proprietary and that the advice provided hereunder by Advisor is for the exclusive use of Client. Client agrees not to disclose any of Advisors trading recommendations, advice or analysis to any third party without Advisors prior written consent. Client agrees to treat all such communication related to the Account as confidential. 17. PATRIOT ACT. Client understands that Advisor may implement an anti-money laundering program as required under the Uniting and Strengthening America by Providing Appropriate Tools Required to Intercept and Obstruct Terrorism (USA Patriot) Act of 2001. Therefore, Client agrees to provide any information deemed necessary by the Advisor in its sole discretion to comply with its anti-money laundering program and related responsibilities from time to time. Further, Client represents and covenants that neither Client, nor any person controlling, controlled by, or under common control with Client, nor any person having a beneficial interest in Client, is a Prohibited Investor (as defined in the USA Patriot Act), and that Client is not investing on behalf of or for the benefit of any Prohibited Investor. Further, Client agrees to promptly notify the Advisor of any change in information affecting this representation and covenant, and, in the event Client breaches its representations and covenants found under this Section 17, Advisor may be obligated to freeze Clients investment by prohibiting additional investments, or refusing to invest the Clients assets pursuant to this Agreement. In such an event, Client shall have no claim against the Advisor for any form of damages as a result of any of the aforementioned actions provided for in this Section. 18. JURISDICTION.

EXHIBIT C ADDENDUM TO MANAGED ACCOUNT AGREEMENT SPECIAL DISCLOSURE FOR NOTIONALLY-FUNDED ACCOUNTS You should request your commodity trading advisor to advise you of the amount of cash or other assets (actual funds) which should be deposited to the advisors trading program for your account to be considered Fully-Funded. This is the amount upon which the commodity trading advisor will determine the number of contracts traded in your account and should be an amount sufficient to make it unlikely that any further cash deposits would be required from you over the course of your participation in the commodity trading advisors program. You are reminded that the account size you have agreed to in writing (the nominal account size) is not the maximum possible loss that your account may experience. You should consult the account statements received from your futures commission merchant in order to determine the actual activity in your account, including profits, losses and current cash equity balance. To the extent that the equity in your account is at any time less than the nominal account size you should be aware of the following: 1. Although your gains and losses, fees and commissions measured in dollars will be the same, they will be greater when expressed as a percentage of account equity. You may receive more frequent and larger margin calls. The disclosures which accompany the matrix table at page 6 may be used to convert the rates-of-return (RORs) in the performance tables to the corresponding RORs for particular partial funding levels.

2. 3.

* * * I have read and understood the above statement relating to my partially funded account. I understand that my account will be traded pursuant to the ADC Diversified Options Program (the Program) offered by Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC (the Advisor). My account will be opened with a $______________ deposit by me into a trading account held by my futures commission merchant. My account will be traded as though it had been fully funded with $_______________ and, therefore, will be funded only as to ____% of its nominal account size. The difference between my deposit and the nominal account size shall represent notional funds. I also understand that my account will generally be traded with a margin-to-equity ratio that may average ____% of the account if fully funded (equal to a ____% margin-to-equity ratio because of my partial funding).
Notional funds in a clients account are funds not actually held in the account, but have been committed by a client to the trading activity of the account. Notional funding creates additional leverage in an account relative to the cash in such account. This additional leverage results in a proportionally greater risk of loss (and opportunity for gain). While the possibility of losing all the cash in an account is present in all accounts, accounts that contain notional equity have a proportionately greater risk of loss. For example, in an account which is funded with only 50% cash (and therefore has 50% notional funds), a loss of 10% of the accounts nominal value (based on both cash and notional funds) will equal a loss of 20% of the cash in the account.

C-1

The following table further demonstrates the impact of notional funding. The table shows a range of possible actual rates of return for a given portfolio in bold print, followed by adjusted rates of return corresponding to various funding levels.

Level of Funding 100% 80% 60% 40%

Rates of Return -30.00% -37.50% -50.00% -75.00% -20.00% -25.00% -33.30% -50.00% -10.00% -12.50% -16.70% -25.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 0.00% 10.00% 12.50% 16.70% 25.00% 20.00% 25.00% 33.30% 50.00% 30.00% 37.50% 50.00% 75.00%

Any additions to my account after the initial deposit shall be treated as an addition to the actual funds in the account and shall be subtracted from the notional funds.

EXHIBIT D ADKINS DIVERSIFIED CAPITAL, LLC ARBITRATION AGREEMENT Any controversy or claim asserted by the undersigned customer against Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC (the Advisor) and/or its principals, arising out of or relating to the Commodity Advisory Agreement between the undersigned customer(s) and Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC, or the undersigned customers futures account, shall be settled by arbitration upon either 1) the contract market on which the disputed transaction was executed or could have been executed, 2) the National Futures Association or 3) the American Arbitration Association. Any award rendered hereon by the arbitrators shall be final and binding on each and all or the parties thereto and their personal representatives and judgment may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof. Notification of your intent to arbitrate must be sent by Certified Mail to Adkins Diversified Capital, LLC (Advisor) at 4129 Spruce Hills Drive, Cedar Falls, Iowa 50613. At such time as you may notify the Advisor that you intend to submit a claim to arbitration, or at such time as the Advisor notifies you of intent to submit a claim to arbitration, you will have the opportunity to elect a qualified forum for conducting the proceedings from a list the Advisor will provide to you within 10 days of receipt of such notice. If you fail to make a selection within 45 days of receipt of such list, the Advisor then has the right to make a selection from the list. The Advisor acknowledges that it may be required to pay any incremental fees, which may be assessed by a qualified forum for provision of a mixed panel. THREE FORUMS EXIST FOR THE RESOLUTION OF COMMODITY DISPUTES: CIVIL COURT LITIGATION, REPARATIONS AT THE COMMODITY FUTURES TRADING COMMISSION (CFTC) AND ARBITRATION CONDUCTED BY A SELF-REGULATORY OR OTHER PRIVATE ORGANIZATION. THE CFTC RECOGNIZES THAT THE OPPORTUNITY TO SETTLE DISPUTES BY ARBITRATION MAY IN SOME CASES PROVIDE MANY BENEFITS TO CUSTOMERS, INCLUDING THE ABILITY TO OBTAIN AN EXPEDITIOUS AND FINAL RESOLUTION OF DISPUTES WITHOUT INCURRING SUBSTANTIAL COSTS. THE CFTC REQUIRES, HOWEVER, THAT EACH CUSTOMER INDIVIDUALLY EXAMINE THE RELATIVE MERITS OF ARBITRATION AND THAT YOUR CONSENT TO THIS ARBITRATION AGREEMENT BE VOLUNTARY. BY SIGNING THIS AGREEMENT, YOU: (1) MAY BE WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO SUE IN A COURT OF LAW; AND (2) ARE AGREEING TO BE BOUND BY ARBITRATION OF ANY CLAIMS OR COUNTERCLAIMS WHICH YOU OR THE ADVISOR MAY SUBMIT TO ARBITRATION UNDER THIS AGREEMENT. YOU ARE NOT, HOWEVER, WAIVING YOUR RIGHT TO ELECT INSTEAD TO PETITION THE CFTC TO INSTITUTE REPARATIONS PROCEEDINGS UNDER SECTION 14 OF THE COMMODITY EXCHANGE ACT WITH RESPECT TO ANY DISPUTE WHICH MAY BE ARBITRATED PURSUANT TO THIS AGREEMENT. IN THE EVENT A DISPUTE ARISES, YOU WILL BE NOTIFIED IF THE ADVISOR INTENDS TO SUBMIT THE DISPUTE TO ARBITRATION. IF YOU BELIEVE A VIOLATION OF THE COMMODITY EXCHANGE ACT IS INVOLVED AND IF YOU PREFER TO REQUEST A SECTION 14 "REPARATIONS" PROCEEDING BEFORE THE CFTC, YOU WILL HAVE 45 DAYS FROM THE DATE OF SUCH NOTICE IN WHICH TO MAKE THAT ELECTION.

Drawdown means losses experienced by the composite over a specified period. Rate of Return is calculated by dividing the Net Performance by the Adjusted Beginning Net Asset Value (Beginning Net Asset Value plus time weighted additions and withdrawals) multiplied by 100. Worst Peak-to-Valley draw-down is the greatest cumulative percentage decline in month-end net asset value of the composite due to losses during a period in which the initial month-end net asset value is not equaled or exceeded by a subsequent month-end net asset value. The performance summary was adjusted to reflect a 30% monthly quarterly incentive fee. The account was traded as having $50,000.00 in funds, and all performance results were calculated using the $50,000.00 trading level.
